ENV 100 Physical Geography Class Team

Naropa University

We are a group of students and faculty learning about Physical Geography. Our approach includes learning about the earth from a systems perspective, which includes the study of atmosphere and climate. Beyond only learning about climate change, through this EcoChallege we are exploring what each of us can do to take action and be in right relationship with our amazing home planet.

    I've realized with time how threatened I feel by the potential loss of Title X. Sen. Joni Ernst, Sen. Chuck Grassley, and Rep. Rod Blum are my reps. They are all conservative, and all voted actively against family planning accessibility time and time again. There's a serious feeling of betrayal when the government officials assigned to an...

    I attend a monthly farm forum on regenerative ag and carbon sequestering, as well as meeting every other week with a group of regenerative ag advocates and the Boulder Open Space Coalition. I buy local whenever I can, volunteer hours on farms, and now manage an organic farm in Louisville. I planted some cottonwoods along coal creek to assist in...

    I try to walk or bike a different path to school every day. I have found joy biking the extra distance to the bike path to get to work rather than riding on the street. I've noticed I'm so much less stressed if I don't drive in the city. Back home, driving is stress free since it's so beautiful along the gravel roads. In Boulder, driving is a...

    Supporting women-owned business is super important in bridging the gender gap and allowing women to have a greater role in the international market economy. I have been for some time wanting to by these hemp reusable bags by the company handsonhemp for a while now and the Drawdown EcoChallenge is the perfect opportunity! This company is online...

    I was confused on what biomass was before researching about it but it's actually a form of fuel that everyone already knows. It's the burning of organic materials to create heat or electricity. This was the first fuel method to be discovered--Burning logs of wood to make fire. Biomass can also be other materials such as certain crops, Hawkins...

    my senators and reps have voted numerous times against title x which is the federal grant dedicated solely to family planning and accessible services.

    Temperate Forests are composed of coniferous, evergreen, deciduous and mixed associate trees. They are really important for the state of the Earth right now because they house a variety of biodiversity, protect watersheds and are considered carbon sinks. Carbon sinks means that they sequester carbon instead of emitting it into the air....

    I learned small practices like a home garden can make a difference in climate change in areas that aren't as protected from climate change as indigenous land is.

    When I first read Drawdown by Paul Hawken I was stoked Climate change always seemed too large to be able to put in a book. Not only did Hawken do so in a comprehensive and organized why, but he also included hundreds of solutions to reverse its effects. Silvopasture is one of the ways I have been interested in approach a portion of my land. We...
