Youzi’s Climate Story

Tokyo, Japan

How are you sensing climate change?

Hotter and wetter.

How do these changes make you feel?

I find myself becoming increasing reliant on air conditioning in summer and are scared of sudden power outage a lot more now than before. Besides, I also realize that young people nowadays are reluctant to spend time outdoor during summer. I think they are really missing out on the outdoor activities that I used to enjoy a lot as a kid(summer hiking, picnic, etc).
