In this session of Space Cafè “Moriba’s Vox Populi 06” Dr. Moriba Jah talked about Environmental Protection, Climate Change, and their Correlation Pleiades with Orbital Space with

  • Prof. Joellen Russell, University Distinguished Professor of Biogeochemical Dynamics, and Thomas R. Brown Distinguished Chair of Integrative Science at the University of Arizona,
  • Dr. Danielle Wood, Assistant Professor of Media Arts and Sciences and Assistant Professor (Joint) of Aeronautics and Astronautics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology,
  • Dr. Imogen Napper, Expedition Scientist at National Geographic,
  • Dr. Michael Webber, Josey Centennial Professor in Energy Resources at the University of Texas at Austin.

Moriba’s Vox Populi is a disruptor in the current growing ocean of webcasts! In the discussing they try to address:

  • Why do many Climate Change people exclude environmental protection?
  • Are environmental protection and climate change synonymous?
  • What anthropogenic inputs are there to the environmental impact on land, air, oceans, and space?
  • Is there a Correlation Pleiades that shows the interdependencies between the earth, air, ocean, and space environments? Is anyone doing the science to find out?
  • Does inequity, prejudice, culture, and other elements play a significant role in our environmental detriment, and how so?
  • What possible funding sources and resources are there to bring to bear on this wicked problem? What’s missing and why?

Diversity is difficult to measure and quantify, given all the aspects and shapes it takes, yet it is easy to witness and observe the lack of it in many fields including the space sector. If the space sector and all its disciplines should be used to help improve life on earth and observe it (amongst other purposes), shouldn't it be represented by all terrestrial individuals equally? In an ideal world, yes! But history and social biases have prevented our progress towards this perfect world, and we find ourselves today with a space sector still dominated by cis white-male individuals.
