Under Pressure: How Young People Are Dealing With Climate Anxiety

Ella Suring, 16, sees the affect of local climate improve exterior her window and feels it in the air she breathes.

“It’s a big fear,” says Suring, a Berkeley High College local climate activist in California.

“Every tumble, I associate the temperature and winds with hearth period. If there is a wad of smoke, we have evacuation alerts. Just one day the sky was fully orange, and the sunshine in no way came up simply because of all the smoke,” suggests Suring.

Even though her residence was in no way bodily threatened by wildfires, Suring claims she has a looming perception of dread about her long term because of local weather change.
