All of the tweets/articles/posts I’ve seen come online since the beginning of the year boil down how to have climate optimism to two ingredients – conversation and action.

If you ask your students what were the major scientific accomplishments in 2018, what would they say? Are they aware of what happened in the previous year, as well as the major concerns and challenges in the sciences?

This is my New Year’s resolution – I have to increase the themes of hope, optimism, action, and advocacy in my courses. I need every student to leave my courses feeling like they can do something that matters and makes a difference.

“AGUs Thriving Earth Exchange is when scientific knowledge and community wisdom come together, where scientists do not stand for people but stand along side them. This is new – this is a movement.”

It can be the same for the AGU Fall Meeting.

Hopefully, the #ClimateFriday hashtag will bring everyone’s attention back to the science, back to communicating not just what the report is stating but why it matters to all. I know I will do my best to add a #ClimateFriday tweet to my Twitter feed every Friday – I hope you will post something in your social media accounts, too.
