About this Event

Suitable for ages 13+ [NB Contains some coarse language.]

New York-based hip-hop artist Baba Brinkman breaks down the politics, economics, and science of global warming, following its surprising twists from the carbon cycle to the energy economy, in a pull-no-punches performance that confronts both the scale of the challenge and also the failings of human psychology that make it such an easy problem to ignore. With scientists, activists, contrarians, and even the Pope adding their voices to the soundtrack, get ready for a funny and refreshing take on the world’s hottest topic.

“Takes listeners on a musical tour of the defining issue of our time, bringing much-needed color, clarity, and humor”— Popular Science
