We're pleased to announce the release of Climate Emergency: Feedback Loops, a series of five short films featuring 12 world-renowned climate scientists. Narrated by Richard Gere, these films are freely available for viewing now and are subtitled in 20 languages at 

This special free livestream event from The Mind & Life Institute on January 9, 2021 at 10:30 p.m. EST (January 10, 2021, 9:00 a.m. IST) will feature His Holiness the Dalai Lama, climate activist Greta Thunberg, and leading scientists to explore steps for addressing urgent climate change challenges. 

Fossil fuel emissions from human activity are driving up the earth's temperature. Less well known is that this warming has set in motion nature's own feedback loops which are raising temperatures even higher. The intergenerational discussion will explore what can be done to slow, halt, or even reverse this threat before it's too late. 

Moderated by Diana Chapman Walsh, "The Dalai Lama with Greta Thunberg and Leading Scientists: A Conversation on the Crisis of Climate Feedback Loops" will be grounded in a new series of educational films, "Climate Emergency: Feedback Loops," narrated by Richard Gere. Contributing their scientific expertise to the conversation will be Susan Natali, Arctic Program Director at the Woodwell Climate Research Center, and William Moomaw, Professor Emeritus of International Environmental Policy at Tufts University.

The livestream event will feature clips from the films and highlight recent scientific findings, the ethical imperative of taking action, and urgent steps needed to minimize this grave danger.

The conversation will be live-streamed on the following four websites:
