New from UCTV:  Susan Moser: “Once you Know –   Growing Our Capacity to Face Darkening Climate Consequences” (Annual Keeling Lecture at Scripps Institute of Oceanography)

Scripps Institute of Oceanography, July 28, 2023 — The confluence of the accelerating climate crisis, more frequent and severe disasters, widespread systemic injustice and oppression, and any number of additional coinciding crises paint a dark picture of our future. Climate professionals often feel inadequately trained to facilitate, navigate and lead communities through the transformative changes we all face. This program will offer directions on how these essential workers — and all of us — can grow the necessary skills and capacities to face and navigate our future. It is those very skills that may yet make us homo sapiens sapiens — “wise humans.”

UCTV:  CARTA— Past, Present and Future of the Anthropocene – Questions, Answers and Closing Remarks

UC Berkeley — This CARTA public symposia will focus on the long and short-term impact of humans on the planet that we inhabit, and the consequences for the future of our species. This also gives us the opportunity to celebrate the memory of the late Paul Crutzen, who coined the term “Anthropocene”. It is relevant to ask how a single species evolved the capacity to completely alter the surface of an entire planet and dominate its governing environmental and ecological processes. This symposium will bring together experts regarding human impact on the planet and also address the current and future implications for our species.
