Generations of Indigenous people have interacted with the land and their local ecology, generating deep, experiential knowledge of the weather and the ability to read the conditions over time. Yet this data has all but been ignored by climate change science. Students are exploring the intersections of humans, climate, and justice in a Summer Session philosophy class.
