Feeling hopeless about climate change? Theres a class for that (at UW Bothell)

BOTHELL, Wash. — A new class aims to give hope and comfort to scientists, educators, and activists feeling utterly depressed about climate change.

The University of Washington Bothell is offering “Environmental Grief & Climate Anxiety,” a class for those who feel “increasingly hopeless about mass extinctions, melting ice sheets and dying oceans.”

The class will teach ways to cope with depression and anxiety related to climate change, as well as develop a “climate survival kit” to help with the emotions.

As the ice caps continue to melt and temperatures heat up, climate change anxiety has been on the rise worldwide, according to a new study. There are stories of young adults refusing to drink water in hopes it would help the climate, and scientists not returning to past worksites, out of fear of how drastically they’ve changed.

Near-term human extinction support groups have even popped up around the Puget Sound, lending ears for people who feel the human race will be gone in a few decades due to drastic habitat loss.

Donald Trump's tariffs on panels will cost US solar industry thousands of jobs

Trump’s decision to impose a 30% tariff will cost the US around 23,000 jobs and risks slowing the growth of clean energy, advocates warn

Donald Trump’s decision to impose a tariff on imported solar panels will cost the US solar industry about 23,000 jobs this year and risks slowing the growth of clean energy that would help address climate change, renewable energy advocates warned.

Trump has imposed a 30% tariff on foreign-made solar cells and modules, with the White House expressing alarm at a huge rise in imported components “spurred on by artificially low-priced solar cells and modules from China”.

But solar installers warned that the tariff, which will reduce to 15% within four years, will cost US jobs rather than protect them.

The Solar Energy Industries Association said 23,000 jobs would be lost in 2018, pointing out that most solar manufacturing in the US revolves around making parts for cheaper imported panels, rather than the cells and panels themselves.

The installation of panels accounts for around 130,000 further jobs.

“It boggles my mind that this president – any president, really – would voluntarily choose to damage one of the fastest-growing segments of our economy,” said Tony Clifford, chief development officer of Standard Solar, which finances and installs panels.
