Jeff Chanton - Individual actions are not going to be enough

Jeff is in love with water, the coast, mud, and nature in every way. He is a native of the gulf coast and also teaches at FSU's Department of Earth, Oceanic, and Atmospheric Sciences. He tries to teach his students that changes are happening to the earth and societal action is needed to preserve our natural Earth. He believes we need to maintain our connection with nature as it can soothe us. He lives off of the enthusiasm of the young people he teaches—in hopes they can inspire the action that is needed to slow climate change.
