How to Think About Climate Change without Scaring Yourself Silly
The global scale of climate change and the dire predictions of its impacts can be daunting. Meadow will share her favorite resources for understanding the current situation and ways she's found to be curious about the questions that climate change is asking of us. She'll also share some of the most hopeful responses she's discovered and what she's learned about effective ways we can act to shape our shared future.
Meadow has been thinking about climate change since 2005, when she heard a talk by Sir David King while working on her Ph.D. in Chemistry at UC Berkeley. While finishing her graduate studies, she took courses on climate and energy through Berkeley’s Energy Resources Group. After graduating, she spent two years as a Science & Technology Policy Fellow at the US EPA in Washington, DC, working on sustainability and sustainable product policy. Meadow currently works as a ceramic artist in Portland, Oregon and this is her second Curiosity Club talk.
