Hi Everyone,
   I have been coordinating, through the Climate Literacy Network, a set 
of climate literacy sessions at both the AGU (American Geophysical Union) 
and GSA (Geological Society of America) meetings.  Please consider 
submitting abstracts to these sessions.  I am pasting in the titles of the 
AGU and GSA session titles, along with the dates of the meeting, abstract 
deadline, and link for submission below.  In addition I am attaching files 
with the session descriptions.  Last year we were very successful at AGU 
with 5 sessions featuring 107 presentations.  This year we have 12 
sessions at AGU and 4 sessions at GSA (this includes climate literacy 
relevant sessions that were submitted independently and have agreed to 
join in our coordination).
   Please let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to seeing 
your abstracts.
