As a PolarTREC educator I am reaching youth and adults with polar science and climate change through many channels. Making the science and justice impacts […]

Living over 35 years in Colorado, ive witnessed the climate changing continuously for decades. As a dendrophile Ive witnessed our forests and trees impacted severely. Aspen stands dying off from fungal diseases & heart attacks from drought, beetles turning our conifers into brown & red matchsticks.

Coral is not like humans it does not die of old age, we are killing it! Why is it dyeing? Because the average temperature of the ocean went down 1 degree! […]

I could be cliche and say climate Change is coming whether we like it or not. But that would be a lie because Climate Change is already here. It’s often overwhelming thinking about how our species will possibly navigate the largest threat we’ve ever faced, but I love science and I have great trust in its potential. My greatest hope is that people will start to trust climate scientists as much as cancer scientists, because they both […]
