CFC Keynote – Alan Palm – Alliance for Climate Education (ACE) | @marioninstitute~

MarionInstituteTVPublished on Nov 4, 2014
ACE believes that achieving a safe and stable climate in our lifetime requires the ideas, action and influence of young people.

Our goal by 2020 is to educate, inspire and activate 12 million teens and young adults as part of a multigenerational force for carbon reduction and healthy communities.

Alan is an educator and writer from the South Coast of Massachusetts, and calls Nova Scotia, Canada a second home. Alan is a graduate of the University of Colorado at Boulder, the Institute for Shipboard Education, and the National Outdoor Leadership School.

Alan and ACE Alum, Ethan Burke, combined their love of travel with an urgent drive to communicate about environmental issues and co-founded BioTour, a sustainability education program operated from school buses converted to run on waste vegetable oil and solar energy. With BioTour, Alan presented at colleges, and K-12 schools across the country and talked with thousands of people about climate change, renewable energy, and democracy.

In 2009 Alan joined ACE, serving as the Lead Educator in the northeast and contributing to the effort to bring climate education to 1 million students. Alan left ACE in 2011 to write a non-fiction narrative book called BioTour: A Grease-Powered Odyssey about the BioTour journey, and to teach at a place-based elementary school in Maine called the Juniper Hill School.

Alan is pumped to be back home — with ACE and in Boston — delivering climate science to empower to the youth of New England.

Journey of the Universe: A Story for Our Times on Coursera

Published on Aug 29, 2016

Published on Aug 29, 2016
Journey of the Universe: A Story for Our Times is a course series created by senior research scholars at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Sciences, Mary Evelyn Tucker and John Grim. The courses weave the discoveries of the evolutionary sciences together with the humanities such as history, philosophy, art, and religion. The courses in this Specialization draw on the Emmy-award winning film, Journey of the Universe, the book from Yale University Press, and a series of 20 interviews with scientists and environmentalists, titled Journey Conversations.

As part of the Specialization, we investigate the life of Thomas Berry, a historian of world religions known for articulating a “new story” of the universe that explores the implications of the evolutionary sciences and cultural traditions for creating a flourishing future.

The capstone course gives students an opportunity to bring together their learning in a project that explores ways in which the creativity of humans can be more deeply aligned with the creativity of universe and Earth processes.

The Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment Tool for Coastal Habitats

Published on Apr 27, 2016

This webinar originally aired on 27 April 2016. Changes in climate affect ecosystems directly and interact with current stressors to impact vital coastal habitats. Adaptive capacity imparted from a system’s natural traits or potential management actions can lessen these impacts. The Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment Tool for Coastal Habitats (CCVATCH) is a spreadsheet-based decision support tool that utilizes a team of local experts – land managers and researchers – to assess the possible interactions of climate change, stressors, and adaptive capacity to understand the climate vulnerabilities of a habitat. The CCVATCH Guidance Document provides background information and assessment questions for each climate-stressor interaction and adaptive capacity considerations. The spreadsheet itself calculates scores for sensitivity-exposure, adaptive capacity, and overall vulnerability. Learn more at http://www.ccvatch.com. This webinar was presented by Jen Plunket of the North Inlet-Winyah Bay NERR, Scott Lerberg of the Chesapeake Bay NERR, and Robin Weber of the Narragansett Bay NERR, and it was co-sponsored by MEAM, OpenChannels.org, and the EBM Tools Network.

Why we should research solar geoengineering | David Keith | TEDxHarvardCollege

TEDx Talks
Published on Dec 2, 2015

Solar geoengineering, or injecting aerosols into the atmosphere, could dramatically halt the effects of climate change. Harvard Professor of Applied Physics David Keith argues that solar geoengineering could be a radically effective way to halt climate change–and deserves serious, systematic research program by the US government. David Keith has worked near the interface between climate science, energy technology, and public policy for 25 years. He took first prize in Canada’s national physics prize exam, won MIT’s prize for excellence in experimental physics, and was one of Time magazine’s Heroes of the Environment. David’s analytical work has ranged from the climatic impacts of large-scale wind power to an early critique of the prospects for hydrogen fuel. He is Professor of Applied Physics at the John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and Professor of Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School.
