An Astronomical Perspective on Globular Clusters, Planet Earth, and the Climate Crisis - Livestream

evolution of stars for more than 100 years. I will describe the role that binary stars play in their fascinating internal dynamics and provide examples of how a cluster's binaries can be revealed using space-based observatories. The unusual perspective that astronomical studies such as these provide on our home planet led to the founding in 2019 of an organization aimed at harnessing this perspective to help combat the climate crisis. The author will briefly describe the goals and activities of Astronomers for Planet Earth, which now comprises 1400 astronomy educators, amateurs, students, and researchers worldwide.
