Why should you attend?

“In his wonderful writing style, Dr. Grinspoon spells it out: A single species is inducing more profound changes to our planet than any other organism in geologic history. It’s us. If you have family and friends here on Earth, read this book. The Earth is in our hands.”  –Bill Nye “The Science Guy,” New York Times-bestselling author of Unstoppable: Harnessing Science to Change the World 

“A marvelous, up-to-the-minute account of human adaptation throughout the world, including proof that our evolution is ongoing. Scott Solomon brings science and scientists to life. He shows us that they’re having fun, and invites us in, too.”  –Melvin Konner, author of Women After All and The Tangled Wing
