Rap Guide to Climate Chaos

You are invited to a performance by Canadian rapper Baba Brinkman on Weds, Nov 16, at 7:30pm in Kane Hall 130 where Brinkman will break down the science, politics, and economics of global warming, following its surprising twists from the carbon cycle to the global energy economy. This performance will be focusing on climate solutions, including ocean carbon dioxide removal. To paraphrase the Notorious BIG: “Mo’ carbon, mo’ problems."

You can register for this performance here. There is still lots of room and it would be great to see you there!
