In the face of widespread misinformation and misunderstanding, a climate scientist ventures into the vast heart of America’s new oil country on two wheels.

After an epic bicycle journey that took him from the Delaware shore to the Oregon coast, David Goodrich sets out on his bike again to traverse the Western Interior Seaway—an ancient ocean that once spread across half of North America. As Goodrich journeys through the Badlands, Theodore Roosevelt National Park, and across the prairies of the upper Midwest and Canada, we get a raw and ground-level view of where the tar sands and oil shales are being opened up. Extraordinary and unregulated, this “black goldrush” is boom and bust in every sense. With Goodrich’s wry self-deprecation and scientific expertise, A Voyage Across an Ancient Ocean is a galvanizing and adventure-filled read that gets to the heart of drilling on our continent.

Goodrich will be in conversation with Mike Tidwell, founder and director of the Chesapeake Climate Action Network, a grassroots nonprofit organization dedicated to raising awareness about the impacts and solutions associated with global warming in Maryland, Virginia, and D.C.
