Jing’s Climate Story 


Jing Cao


Guangzhou, China

How are you sensing climate change?

I felt the temperature is getting higher and found that people wear less during winter. Comparatively, more people get heat stroke in summer. Personally the summer heat is getting unbearable.

How do these changes make you feel?

I feel it’s much more uncomfortable. I feel like walking on a furnace in summer when I walked on the street. I would like to stay in house with air conditioners like what other people do. Honestly, it’s not good since people have less social connections and outdoor activities. But we need to face the heat wave if we go outside.
