The planet’s future isn’t just a public issue—for some, it’s a personal crusade. In “Life on the Rocks ,” Juli Berwald describes her admiration of coral reefs and relates their uncertain future to her life. In “Below the Edge of Darkness,” Edith Widder details her fascination with bioluminescence, using it as a lens to understand optimism, communication, even her own health. Moderated by Liz Neeley.
