About Jeremy Kerr

I care about conservation and finding ways to make serious challenges, like climate change, a little more manageable. I have also worked for many years on policy related environmental protection and evidence-based decision-making. When I’m not busy with those things, I love to go trail running, cycling, photography and to take my students to Tanzania to learn about wildlife and conservation.

Flatten the curve: climate chaos and extinction rates

Climate chaos is the increasing frequency and severity of extreme weather, and it goes hand-in-hand with climate change. Evidence from many sources demonstrates that this chaos contributes to population extinctions. But we can flatten the curve. Earth Day 2020 reminds us that we must do so.
