Big news: we are starting up a new Edgeryders unit, dedicated to working on climate and environment-related issues. More news are coming in the next days. Here, I would like to hear suggestions for what we should call it.
As an avid science fiction reader, my metaphor for this kind of work is terraforming. We would contribute to terraforming (back) Earth.
Terraforming or terraformation (literally, “Earth-shaping”) of a planet, moon, or other body is the hypothetical process of deliberately modifying its atmosphere, temperature, surface topography or ecology to be similar to the environment of Earth to make it habitable by Earth-like life.
So, should this be the Edgeryders Terraforming Team? The Gaian Gang? The Climate Club? The Solarpunk Squadron? Just joking, and maybe we would want something more businesslike, but… I would just like to hear from people. @noemi and I are going to make the final decision, but we could use some help.
