Permaculture: 9am to 10:20 am  Super excited to address coffee production sustainability through a permaculture lens. Requests have come in for links to journal articles that I plan to abstract key points from. Below are various articles that I will refer to, and you are invited to delve into/dance/howl with these as much as you are able to before our week 9 Tuesday meeting. Please don’t be limited by these. Follow the suggestion of our faculty librarian liason, Paul McMillin, and use google scholar to quickly find many full text articles that suit your topical interests. You do need to read Shade coffee biodiversity global overview

Anthropocene Lecture Series: Week 9 (December 2nd): Ocean Change: The Carbonate Trajectory of Ocean Climate, Pauline Yu

Reading: The Pathway from Science to Policy, Oceanography, 2015 by Mathis, Cooley, Yates & Williamson : Anthropocene_reading_Week9_Mathis (Please read- it is really just 5 pages)

Reading prompt: Ocean Acidification (OA) is a wide-reaching global phenomenon, just like sea-level rise, overfishing and ocean warming. Our current lives are impacting and impacted by all 4 problems at different intensities and different stages of each threat. Based on the information presented in the paper, (and as a current Washington state resident), how does OA rank in priority among the listed ocean concerns locally for you or your community? How do you compare that local ranking to a priority ranking (assigned by you) for the global ocean concerns? Lastly, consider the question–is there non-monetary value that calcified marine animals might have in your life?
