How are you sensing climate change?

Growing up in South Jersey, I’ve spent summers going to the Jersey Shore my whole life. I’ve noticed the beach getting smaller and smaller, summers getting hotter, and the ocean getting warmer as the years have gone by. After Hurricanes Irene and Sandy’s disastrous impacts on the shore, as well as more intense weather in general, there has been no denying climate change’s effects on one of my favorite places.
