Many educated people live within the socially defined hemispheres of their brain. There are many who are unable to bridge the gap between the two seemingly isolated worlds. However, this non-objective association actually limits the transfer of knowledge between humanity.

Climate Science, and the adaptation to our evolving world, will affect every human and industry for the foreseeable future.

The most efficient injection of science throughout non-scientific communities requires that the information be delivered in a manner in which the receiver is able to comprehend the enormity of the challenge that lies ahead of humanity. People, regardless of interests or occupations, need to be able to relate to the concept of Climate Science as a whole.

Introducing the AMS Climate Studies course in an Art College will allow for the delivery of scientifically sound information via a vastly untapped resource of humanity. The industry needs a scientific saturation which will only occur with one student at a time. Art will imitate life and therefore artists need to be tapped as a resource for information transfer.
