Speaker | Discussion:
* [00:01:33] “Life After: Personal Impacts of Increasing Climate Disasters” with Tammi Fierro-Zeis, Audubon Washington and Audubon Miami Valley.
"During the Summer of 2020, while the pandemic raged on, and as most of the areas west of Colorado were engulfed in historically disastrous wildfire, I traveled 2000 miles to resettle in Oregon via a small hatchback and with as few worldly possessions as could be carried. In that time, I saw first hand the effects of those climates disasters, and have since been witness to the lasting devastation these communities, both environmental and human, have endured. Some have not recovered, and may never. These are the effects of unchecked climate change, and the disasters it brings with it."
“I hope listeners can take away the seriousness of climate disasters, and not just when these incidences occur, but how long it takes to rebuild, and the far reaching effects… Please reach out to your senators, environmental advocacy organizations, congressmen, representatives of any capacity, and make your voice known that you care about political issues and specifically, you care about laws that protect and help protect climate disasters and help do things like build infrastructure and protect clean water resources. You can do it! You just need to take first steps to communicate you care.”
