Dr. Hugo Bardi, author of "Extracted: How the Quest for Mineral Wealth is Plundering the Planet," spoke to a packed crowd at Dorothy’s Gallery for Democrats Abroad France in our series leading up to COP21. A professor of chemistry and renowned scientist he delivered a powerful and harrowing analysis of the dangers we face with climate change. "As we dig, drill, and excavate to unearth the planet s mineral bounty, the resources we exploit from ores, veins, seams, and wells are gradually becoming exhausted. Mineral treasures that took millions, or even billions, of years to form are now being squandered in just centuries or sometimes just decades.”
This event was organized by the Environment and Energy Policy Group, thanks to Dana Powers and Cara Maesano.
