Abstract: Under pressures of Climate Change, national political stasis, and other potent factors, American universities, colleges, and schools face harsh challenges unlike any our professions have ever encountered. This is due largely to profound contradictions between national needs in our changing society and pressures within and between our varied and competing American sub-cultures. This presentation views the issues in four major categories:
Evidence: facts about suppressive forces affecting science, academia, and education.
Limited Time: an urgently critical factor.
Suppressive Impacts: Climate Change and Environmental Degradation as force multipliers.
Prescription: NEW WAYS TO EXPAND AN AGENDA FOR POSITIVE CHANGE.
