Dr. Karl introduces Yvonne Cuaresma


Grief can be powerful when we put it into action.

Yvonne Cuaresma knows climate grief. Her family in the West watches as wildfires burn more acreage every year, while her friends back in New York City watch flood waters rise. The pandemic, the heat, and the fires, all led Yvonne to a kind of climate crisis of her own. But then she found a way to start to heal.

We talked to Ms. Cuaresma about The Climate Journal Project, her strategies for building communities of action, and how to move through climate paralysis through self-discovery.
