How are you sensing climate change?

A memory that sticks out to me when I think about my relationship to climate change is looking up into an orange sky one Saturday morning on the way to the farmers market in San Francisco. The only word to describe it was apocalyptic. Like a scene out of a movie after the world had ended. The sky was thick with not fog, but smoke that had carried over from Santa Rosa CA. I’d never experienced something like that before. This was first time I really felt the effects of climate change as an adult. What in the moment felt like a rare experience, has occurred numerous times after within the Bay Area.

How do these changes make you feel?

Upsetting. Overwhelmed. A loss of innocence.
