Pybus University: Prognosis Planet Earth 2020: 50 years after the first earth day, 12/1, 7 p.m. This course is designed to rethink our legacy away from destruction and towards restoration and reconnection with the natural world and our place in it. We start by asking, what is the state of our planet in terms of climate, species extinctions and vital ecosystems?  You will learn about the basic science of climate change and its various impacts here in North Central Washington and abroad with data gathered from NASA, NOAA, Carbon Brief, and UW’s Climate Impacts Group.  We will then put this data into the context of climate justice—who is most vulnerable to harm, and climate grief—how can we deal with this harm and potential losses?  The best antidote often seems to be action, and we will need it at all levels from individual to international, from personal to policy. We will conclude the class with an overview of existing solutions to help mitigate the crisis and then envision how each of us can use our skills or talents to take appropriate action and become a better 100th Earth Day ancestor. Joan Qazi facilitator. Class will be held virtually. Must Register. Info: pybuspublicmarket.org.
