Tom Garvey class of 89 hi all. is closed caption available?
A burden and a sacred privilege…
^ agree "A burden and a sacred privilege"
“The next 10 years must see the most profound transformation the world has ever known”
10 years does seem like a long time in a human life span, but also not long at all...
I remember that a podcast was talking about climate change and they mentioned that many people didn't care for the reason that we believe that we can just go live in Mars but that isn't necessarily true. This belief has made it so many don't care about climate change.
A theme I'm already seeing is connection - action requires a connected effort from everyone in every industry, resolutions have to consider the connection of planet/people/profit, the biophysical systems that are affected by climate change are connected
Wow. For every 1% of a global temp increase, 1 BILLION people (I believe) will be living in conditions that are uninhabitable :(
@Shruti that makes me think of the slogan "There is no planet B"
Exactly. Colonizing Mars would need us to have Earth as a base. Even going and living in space isn't a possibility.
Great planes / agriculture is in a great place to help reabsorb carbon- that impacts all those systems
Melting ice sheets would most likely push more and more people inland, especially in places like Illinois\
What does climate injustice look like in the scope of climate change science? What can science tell us about this topic?
YES! Climate injustice relates to many different systems as well such as systemic racism
“Climate changes amplifies inequity/injustice”
Stay tuned, we'll be digging into the intersection of these topics even further later on!
One factor I don't understand why no one talks about is how switching to reusable energy would bring the energy industry back to the US completely. Am I wrong to think of this?
Very disappointing that the US dropped out of changes that already weren’t even enough… says a lot.
You are right on point Shruti
Agreed William, very disappointing, that's why it's important that as citizens we use our voices and tell our decision makers what action we want our country to take
Do we know what effects this shift would have on the economies of countries in the Middle East that have heavy oil industries?
VOTE VOTE VOTE
vote locally too!
There’s a saying, “All politics are local”
This pandemic has showed us how politics are local
Well said Dr. Bloom!
The pandemic has also shown us that we can make extreme changes quickly, which we need to do with regard to climate action
“We let capitalism morph into something monstrous”
^ Agree with Kaitlin!
It is confusing how people can see the wildfire in California and think that climate change doesn't exist.
Shruti: While a shift away from a retro-economy will challenge those countries, it is a shift that they will have to make anyway - sooner rather than later. There are other resources (like the sun) that those countries could choose to exploit. Morocco is a great example of this.
Thank you for answering my question
cant make money if there is no people
Businesses invest in destruction
“corruption works best when it’s hidden”
This is why I love social entrepreneurship
find Celestine's watches and more info on them in the links above!
If you can decrease the production of carbon and promote ways to absorb carbon you make the effect on temp rise more significant
Carbon renewal is going to have to be part of any successful strategy for limiting warming to “safe” levels
And could really improve our agricultural practices
this simulator is such a helpful visual representation to begin to conceptualize how all these industries have a roll to play and make an impact (either positively/negatively)
Yes! It’s so cool to watch the effects in “real time”
Great job, Becky!
Humans tend to not want to do anything that isn't easy until absolutely needed
Yes! And simulations make these concepts more accessible to people of all knowledge levels!

where can I find this website? sorry if I missed it

Here's the simulator if you want to make your own scenarios!
“When the disaster is declared done they suffer more than anyone.”
“You don’t need to be a politician to make it your mission”
Now, Now, Now
“The time is now, now, now”
Also “giving future generations / our youth the planet they deserve”
“Not because it is easy or nice but because it is necessary”
This is not just a poem - it is a psalm for our time
"What can we do?" That's a question I find myself asking a lot.
Can reproducte the stats accurately, but those differences in producing/taking in more/less based on race is shocking.
WOAH those stats! Black people breathe in 56% more pollution than they produce and white people breathe in 17% less than they produce
“The climate crisis is . . . colonialism’s natural conclusion“ — MP David Lammy
Margaret Stacy-Duffy (she/her)
“We need to look at who is being cropped out”
“You didn’t just erase a photo, you erased a continent”
So much can be done by action on college campuses! Earth day was started by a grad student that got a bunch of colleges and schools across the country to celebrate it, and the country embraced it after seeing it’s success!
Thanks for sharing Milia!!!
Thank you, Milia!
thank you so much, Dakota & Dr. Caliendo!
I love this innovation! What a great way to use your resources to combat issues such as homelessness and improve the community
"We can create the future we want, but getting there is going to take everyone contributing around the world, wherever we call home."
Love the birds chirping in the background
“Optimism means envisioning our desired future and actively pulling it closer”
Thank you, Haven!
100% agree about the “weight of the world” point! Individual baby steps can turn into big steps from major corporations (hopefully!)
Great job Haven!
^^^ What Lily said!
That is very impressive, Jeremy!
JG THATS AMAZING!! I heard you’ve also kayaked to work as well

You can present at the 2021 Rall Symposium!
Yay to getting involved in government!
I unfortunately have to leave to get to a meeting but thank you SO much to all of the speakers and organizers of this event. I learned so much and am so appreciative to be at a school where so many people care so deeply about learning about these things. Thank you thank you thank you!
Thank you, Juliet and Grace! Students and community of Naperville, please get involved.Naperville “consumes” one of the largest shares of coal-fired electricity from the Prairie State Energy Campus, THE largest GHG polluter in Illinois with over 26 billion pounds of CO2 per year!
learn more about Naperville's energy THIS SUNDAY at the launch of cleanenergynaperville.org
You’re doing a great job, Jeremy!
Here's the website if those ideas went by too quickly! https://www.count-us-in.org/
