In this episode, we find ourselves engulfed in some of the worst weather and air quality that we have seen in the western states. Here is what was on the front page of the LA Times reports two weekends ago in big letters - “California’s Climate Apocalypse - fires, heat, air pollution: The calamity is no longer in the future - it’s here, now.” We’ll spend all of this episode digging into the science of our recent experience but also looking for short-term and long-term educational opportunities to use this reality to help students cope and hopefully thrive in this new world.
