Livestream Second Saturday Conversation: The Power of Our Fork
May 9, 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
We’ve known for decades that burning fossil fuels is a significant contributor to climate change, but what about the agriculture sector? Can our food choices also help stop climate change? Come learn what the data says about agriculture’s impact on the planet, and what you can do about it.
Sarina Farb is a Kansas City-based science teacher and sustainable living advocate. After conducting her own molecular biology research in high school and winning numerous awards for it, including the Linda Hall Library Shipman Award and a spot in the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, Sarina became hooked on science. She attended Grinnell college where she earned degrees in biochemistry and policy studies. While at Grinnell she also became involved in environmental education and the intersection of science, policy, and ethics. Today Sarina teaches chemistry and AP Environmental Science at St. Teresa’s Academy and writes, speaks, and creates educational YouTube videos in her free time.
