Abstract:Sustainability is arguably the grandest challenge in human history. Climate change, a topic we are stuck on today, is training wheels for dealing with the truly tough subject of sustainability. What are the basics about climate change that everyone should know? Where are the nasty feedbacks and are they appearing now? What does the climate of the past tell us about where we are headed? And what are the simple keys to sustainability? We will explore these questions with as much discussion as you can muster.
