Deveena’s Climate Story #2


Deveena Derick


Kerala, India

How are you sensing climate change?

I am sensing climate change all around me. Temperatures globally have risen, weather extremes are only getting worse, rainwater is increasing and more floods are being caused. Glaciers are melting.. Everything is happening all around, and now it is too late to stop the ruin of our world with climate change.

How do these changes make you feel?

Climate changes make me feel anxious, really worried, frustrated, and upset. I lost my loved ones, people who deserved so much in life. Not just my loved ones, but also members of my community. Climate change affected my home state back in India so severely and made a devastating flood in 2018. People lost homes, family members, community members, and loved ones- people that should not have been lost.
