(memoir) Burbank, CA
I’m working on a memoir about being censored by my managers at NASA during the Trump administration; they wanted to stop me from speaking and writing about climate change. I learned that standing up for my values was more important than fitting in and I learned to find my voice.
Laura Faye Tenenbaum is an award-winning globally recognized innovator in science and climate communication. She is the former Senior Science Editor of NASA’s Global Climate Change website at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) where she reported on sea level rise, ice mass loss, climate modeling, anthropogenic climate forcing and regional climate impacts. She traveled to Greenland multiple times with NASA suborbital campaigns to report on new research into the rate of ice mass loss around Greenland’s coastline. Tenenbaum has been an adjunct professor in the Physical Science Department at Glendale Community College, where she taught for 13 years. She also wrote, produced and edited an oceanography video series to accompany Pearson Higher Education’s Essentials of Oceanography textbook.
