Daren’s Climate Story
Philadelphia, PA, United States
How are you sensing climate change?
During the summer of 2022, the temperature was so high. The average temperatures in the summer where about 90℉. Even though that temperature is the average, there were a lot of days where the temperature had reached over 100℉. My house’s air conditioning broke in July and it was cooler outside. My family was baking. It took about a week to fix. That was one of the worst weeks in my life. The average temperature went up about 10℉ in the past ten years. It makes me very worried for the future—how high will the temperature be, what will the weather be, and will my air conditioning break again—. Climate change is a really important issue that must be addressed as soon as possible. If not, the Earth will meet its end.
How do these changes make you feel?
These changes make me worried about the future. I wonder when the efforts are going to take effect. I also feel helpless because I feel like what I do isn’t even going to help the issue.
