Description

This week we are discussing different aspects of climate change: the causes, the implications, and its impact on coal-mining communities. Scott Miller (astronomer at Maysville Community and Technical College) presents a primer on the topic of climate change, followed by Colleen McDonald and Kristina Dahl of the Union of Concerned Scientists. Their discussion is part of the podcast 'Off the Charts Heat: Zombie Fires, Drought and Heat Domes' (https://www.ucsusa.org/resources/zombie-fires-heat-domes-and-drought).

Then, Kaylynne Glover (President, Kentuckians for Science Education; https://kyscied.wordpress.com/) discusses ways to revitalize coal communities in response to climate change. Here is the entire KSE Policy Brief: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1-PN-VnrZH_6nq6AStJ9jtlwc-Q_6PXFu/view

Finally, Scott Miller returns with a description of the planets, stars, and meteor showers we can see during the month of October-2021.
