Wednesday, September 6, 2017 - 3:00pm

Earth has had five mass extinction events over the millennia, global disasters that have wiped out much of the life on the planet. Most were not caused by an impact by an asteroid. Why do these events happen and what can they tell us about the results of how we are altering the climate today? Tonight on Inquiry we talk with award-winning science journalist PETER BRANNEN about his new book THE ENDS OF THE WORLD: VOLCANIC APOCALYPSES, LETHAL OCEANS, AND OUR QUEST TO UNDERSTAND EARTH’S PAST MASS EXTINCTIONS.

Berklee's mission is to educate, train, and develop students to excel in music as a career.

Developing the musicianship of all our students is the foundation of our curriculum. We believe that the lessons and qualities derived from that work—the self-discipline needed for excellence, the empathy required of music making and the openness and curiosity essential to creativity—are critical to achievement in any pursuit, musical or otherwise.
