I4C is the acronym for Institute for [“4”] Contemplative Ecology. I4C is also a doubly-loaded pun: “I foresee” referring to the prophetic voice that speaks truth to power in the Christian tradition, proclaiming “repent”, i.e. change your ways. It is also referring to contemporary climate science, in particular the IPCC, which “foresees” a global warming far beyond 1.5° C higher than pre-industrial levels if we don’t dramatically cut back on GHG emissions, i.e. change our ways.
