Dennis Dimick, former picture and environment editor for National Geographic, delivers a narrated visual journey through the Anthropocene—the past three centuries of human activity culminating in our fossil-fueled modern world. Presented by the SOJC’s Media Center for Science and Technology, Dimick's talk makes a case that, while humans have created great prosperity on Earth, it's at a cost we must now reckon with. As we approach a turning point, Dimick says, communicators can help convince policy makers and the public that we must make an energy transition before it’s too late. This lecture was made possible by funds from the Robert and Mabel Ruhl and Richard W. and Laurie Johnston lecture series. Dimick is co-founder of Eyes On Earth, a project to inspire a new generation of environmental photographers. A son of fisheries biologists, Dimick grew up on a sheep and hay farm in Oregon’s Willamette Valley.
