Hi all, from University of Nebraska at Omaha too!

I wonder how much the "year without a summer" 1816 impacted the study/impact of early climate scientists
Steven Jones

Did anyone see the PBS Frontline episode on Big Oil last night?
Cathy Copeland

That was an excellent episode, Steven!

Unfortunately, it's not just Republican opposition. Dems like Senator Manchin also offer resistance. It would be political suicide for him to go against "King Coal" in West Virginia, my home state.

Laura's point is important. Plug for CFR's Model Diplomacy NSC Simulation on Climate Change: this is one of the arguments in favor of more aggressive climate change policies.
Cathy Copeland
01:04:46
Feel free to share ideas or thoughts in the chat too!
Facilitator-Amber Godwin

Shomari, chime in! You had great ideas to share about doing our parts!!!

The sense of urgency is different from nation to nation. Small island developing states are intimately acquainted with the MATERIAL reality of climate change.
Steven Jones
01:06:48
Given the link between climate change and the pandemic, one would think millions of deaths to Covid, with close to a million in the U.S. would be the kind of catastrophe to move action. Unfortunately, not everyone sees that connection.
Jody Neathery-Castro
01:07:14
Yes - urgency is the challenge!
Jody Dixon
01:07:19
I was just about to say this Steven!

Room 4 was a great room!!!

Perhaps a fitting quote (sorry I can't remember where I heard it from): It's a lack of will on the part of the powerful and a lack of power on the part of the willing.
Facilitator: Steve Elliott-Gower
01:10:43
I also have to go to class. Thank you!
Facilitator-Amber Godwin

Well said Walteria, it's not theoretical, this is REAL, and now and directly impacts our lives today
Facilitator: Amy Below
