Many professions have practicums.  These are periods of study and work that  that are designed is to prepare students for the challenges they will  face when they graduate. In this chronicle I’m  suggesting we have a  practicum for climate change.  It is the current Corona Virus Pandemic. This article is divided into three parts: 1) how the current pandemic can be used to help us prepare for climate change, 2) The challenges we are facing, and 3) an article I recently came across that describes the  need for a different way of creating a climate change practicum to deal with climate change in the next few generations.
