More than Scientists: Quitting is a Privilege

Quitting is a privilege
Phaedra Pezzullo, University of Colorado Boulder

We have a lot of admiration for Phaedra’s approach:
“I think quitting is a privilege. If you listen to the people most impacted by environmental disasters and climate disasters, they don’t have the privilege to quit, they have to keep working. I find a lot of hope in the people who get up every day and try to make a difference, because what is our alternative?”

Because really, what *is* the alternative? [video]

In this Inside the Greenhouse project, Fall semester ‘Climate and Film’ (ATLS 3519/EBIO 4460) students and Spring semester ‘Creative Climate Communication’ (ENVS3173/THTR4173) students, along with the More than Scientists campaign, create and produce a short video based on an interview of a climate scientist in the local Boulder area, depicting human/personal dimensions of their work.

These scientists work at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES), the Institute for Arctic and Alpine Research (INSTAAR), Wester Water Assessment(WWA), the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC), the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) and various other units at CU-Boulder (e.g. Atmospheric Sciences Department, Environmental Studies Program, Geography Department, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Department).
