Climate Science

I believe that climate change is the single biggest problem facing the world, and I look at everything through that lens. Because of human-caused climate change, we are in the midst of the sixth major extinction period, marking the end of so many species of plants and animals. But I continue to have hope. I write stories where efforts do make a difference, and change the world for the better.
