My valence on climate change is pretty dissonant most days. I love to watch the cloud show in the sky above my garden. But my delight can turn quickly to despair when I think that clouds may someday be gone due to climate change. While I’ve modified my life to reduce my carbon footprint, I know that my efforts alone will not stop the difficult reality of a changing climate and some days I have to grapple with despair.
