    This week, I got the opportunity to delve into CSL 2 as one of the presenters. One of the most fascinating things I thought of in creating this presentation was just how interconnected humans are to other humans. We already know of coal burning polluting the atmosphere causing problems with our air, but its actually sticking on ice! Events from climate change, such as increased average temperatures, have caused both sea level rise and droughts causing a predicted 143 million displaced people by 2050 (see Groundswell from the World Bank).  I've learned just a bit more about how many problems we have caused, but there's a lot of solutions as well!
