Climate Anxiety in the Trump Era

Climate Anxiety in the Trump Era

Three separate interviews with leaders on the environment — Jeff Hayward, Katherine Crocker, and Renee Lertzman — were asked what they’re doing in response to the election results. What we can do? Jeff Hayward, who is vice president of landscapes and livelihoods for the Rainforest Alliance, spoke to Warm Regards from Marrakech, Morocco where he is attending COP 22. Katherine Crocker, is an evolutionary ecologist at the University of Michigan and a member of the Kaw Nation. Days after the election, she travelled to support the water protectors of the Standing Rock Sioux in North Dakota. Renee Lertzman, works to understand the psychology of how we deal with environmental issues. Her words are especially useful in this time of shared anxiety and concern and uncertainty.
