Author Nathaniel Rich will be in conversation with WWNO Coastal Desk reporter Tegan Wendland about his new book, "Losing Earth: A Recent History".
By 1979, we knew nearly everything we understand today about climate change—including how to stop it. Over the next decade, a handful of scientists, politicians, and strategists, led by two unlikely heroes, risked their careers in a desperate, escalating campaign to convince the world to act before it was too late. Losing Earth is their story, and ours.
