Aylin’s Climate Story

How are you sensing climate change?

I was at the Folger Institute’s “Creating Nature” conference in May. In the middle of a panel on storms, there was a tornado warning and we had to shelter in the basement. Later, I talked to a school bus driver and asked what she’d done during the warning, which happened right after the schools let out. “Just kept driving,” she said. East coasters that we are, neither she nor I knew the proper procedure for a tornado warning. As weather patterns change, we need to quickly adapt to situations we’ve never experienced before, or risk serious danger.
