Acclaimed environmental writer Elizabeth Kolbert's latest book investigates science's cutting-edge fight against the effects of climate change. After doing so much damage, have we left it too late to save our world?

In the face of climate change's threat to humanity, experts are using imaginative techniques to bring the planet back to health.

Author and The New Yorker journalist Elizabeth Kolbert visited laboratories and damaged ecosystems across the world to learn about our last ditch attempts to save our natural world: engineers turning carbon emissions to stone in Iceland; Australian researchers trying to develop a super coral that can survive in a warmer ocean, and physicists considering shooting light-reflective particles into the stratosphere to cool the earth.

It's clear: the very sorts of interventions that have imperiled our planet could be the only hope for its salvation. Don't miss this conversation about the nature of the future that promises to be equal parts terrifying and inspiring.
