In their new book “Breakpoint: Reckoning with America's Environmental Crises,” eminent ecologist Jeremy B. C. Jackson and award-winning journalist Steve Chapple examine the looming threats from recent hurricanes and fires, industrial agriculture, river mismanagement, extreme weather events, drought, and rising sea levels that, they say, are pushing the country toward the breaking point of ecological and economic collapse.

 

Despite these challenges, Jackson and Chapple provide practical solutions for addressing these multidimensional issues to achieve greater environmental stability, human well-being, and future economic prosperity.

Jeremy Jackson is headlining events today at the Stegner Center on the University of Utah campus in Salt Lake City. He’ll join us for the hour today.

Jeremy B. C. Jackson is Professor of Oceanography Emeritus at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography and Senior Scientist Emeritus at the Smithsonian Institution. He studies threats and solutions of human impacts on the oceans and the ecology and evolution of tropical seas. Jackson is the author of 160 scientific publications and eleven books. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and has received numerous prizes and awards including the BBVA International Prize in Ecology and Conservation, The Paleontological Medal, and the Darwin Medal of the International Society for Reef Studies. Jackson’s work on the collapse of coastal ecosystems was chosen by Discover magazine as the outstanding scientific achievement of 2001.
