Under a White Sky: The Nature of the Future
Elizabeth Kolbert, staff writer at The New Yorker and Pulitzer Prize-winning author

Time Zone: America/Chicago
Local Time: Monday, March 15, 2021 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Elizabeth Kolbert asks: “After doing so much damage, can we change nature, this time to save it?” In 2015, Kolbert won a Pulitzer Prize for her book chronicling humanity’s destructive behavior towards nature. She now turns her focus to the ways in which that very same human development may now be used to protect and save the planet. Meeting with scientists, engineers, and researchers, Kolbert shines a light on the environmental innovations in development worldwide and some of the world’s most unique ecosystems.

Moderated by Lee Cullum, host, CEO.

Elizabeth Kolbert is a staff writer at The New Yorker. Her three-part series on global warming, “The Climate of Man,” won the 2006 National Magazine Award for Public Interest. She has won numerous awards for her work on environmental topics. Before joining The New Yorker in 1999, Kolbert was a political reporter at the New York Times.

Lee Cullum is the host of CEO, a public television and radio program featuring a series of interviews with North Texas business leaders. She is also a commentator for Morning Edition on KERA and a contributor to the Dallas Morning News. Her long journalism career includes National Public Radio and the Dallas Times Herald. Cullum is a senior fellow at the Tower Center at Southern Methodist University. She is a member of the World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth’s Mallon Circle.
