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 vents 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.

Tonight on Inquiry we talk with LAURA DASSOW WALLS. She is the William P. and Hazel B. White Professor of English at the University of Notre Dame. Her new biography is a lively portrait of one of America’s most celebrated authors: HENRY DAVID THOREAU: A LIFE.
