Real climate change is possible — and urgently needed

I spent the last year as a Presbyterian Young Adult Volunteer (YAV) in Austin, Texas. In my role as a YAV, I served with Texas Impact, an interfaith advocacy organization representing the mainstream faith traditions of Texas. I worked on a research project related to Hurricane Harvey recovery and began to draw connections between climate change and this local disaster. After a few months into the project, I had the opportunity to attend the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Katowice, Poland.
