    Hi Laura and Sharon, I feel fear! Fear about what the future of our world will look like, what kinds of resources we will have, and what life for people will look like. I am a high school teacher. I wonder if I could start a garden club at school that helps educate students about some of these issues, and bring in the science teachers too. These students could become tomorrow’s farmers, engineers, politicians, etc. When Trump got elected, my whole school went through a period of grief. Some students came up to me and said that he was going to destroy the environment. I said, we just have to protect the environment ourselves. I’m not sure how though. This class has been very enlightening and informative! I’m glad we are all networking together and building this online community of diverse backgrounds.
