The Earth’s climate is changing, and the impacts are all around us. Drought, wildfires, tornados, and hurricanes are more frequent and fierce. At home and around the world, the effects of climate change are undeniable. This escalating crisis threatens us all, but with the impacts first felt by those held down by inequitable policies and systemic racism here and abroad. Collective action is urgently needed.
Can we slow the effects of climate change? Can we adapt to create a more resilient planet for humans and nature? Can we protect communities that are disadvantaged and most at risk? What kind of future do we want to leave for the next generation? These questions stir powerful emotions. Science can help us measure and predict climate change effects, but it can be challenging to communicate and understand what the data tell us. How can we emotionally process the scale of the changes that affect us all?
