Seminar and book signing for Our Dying Planet


  • DATE / TIME:
    2012•04•10    18:30 - 20:00

    Dr. Peter F. Sale of UNU-INWEH will hold a book signing of his latest release Our Dying Planet: An Ecologist’s View of the Crisis we Face and conduct a seminar on “A global environmental crisis: the fate of coral reefs and our oceans”.

    Coral reefs as we know them could disappear from the Earth by 2050, all because of things we have done and are doing to them. As a coral reef ecologist, Dr. Sale has a particular perspective on the environmental crisis. He will use his experience to illustrate in this seminar how the future for coral reefs depends intrinsically on decisions we make about other things. He will review the range of our impacts on reefs, their consequences, and likely trends in each.
