This changeletter brought to you by: The Mitty by Take My Face Off
This month's Changeletter topic is weather. I realized, thanks to climate experts I follow on Twitter, that we don't do a good job connecting weather and climate.
We experience weather every day, and it's time to connect the dots. The big takeaway: we are in a climate emergency, and these heat waves and droughts are not standalone events. (Fun, right?)
Let's start by understanding some key facts and figures about weather vs. climate.
Anyway if there's ONE thing I would like you to do today, pick a family member who doesn't quite "get it" on climate change. Not someone who doesn't believe in it, but someone who doesn't understand how bad it is. Show them NASA's climate time machine.

This 2018 video talks about extreme weather events, how a changing climate causes what we're going through, and what we can do. Let's get started!
