This is my story of growing up under the constant threat of climate destruction. Living with this threat is something I thought was “normal” as a child, and only recently have I realized how bizarre it is to face the possibility of outliving nature as we know it.

I created this story so that it might spark conversations about the toll of climate change on the mental and emotional wellbeing of children everywhere, which is a serious topic that has largely been left out of the conversation on climate.
