    I would suggest the NYT Guest Essay for 5/1/22: A ‘LIFE-AFFIRMING’ REMEDY FOR CLIMATE DESPAIR by Margaret Klein Salomon.

    This thoughtful read about climate despair begins with a recent Lancet survey of 10,000 people ages 16 to 25 where 56% said humanity was doomed and 45 % said climate anxiety affected their daily lives. In spite of these disturbing numbers, she notes that we continue to avoid public conversations about how all this affects the mental health of our young people.

    She tells us; “the climate emergency hurts because we love this world…..but how do we turn that pain into action?” Then she suggests a very logical answer to her question – join a movement. Her conclusion:

    “Joining a movement allows us to live for a purpose greater than ourselves, and a collective benefit of a national climate mobilization would be improved mental health. Instead of despair and alienation, we can find a sense of purpose and community in the face of the climate crisis.”

    Thoughtful words worth considering…
