    Involvement In The Climate Museum
    Roughly four years ago, social media users thought of establishing a Climate Museum in New York City. When my sister told me about this, I was so excited because it is just what the city needs: a place to educate people about climate change through art. New York City is a major coastal metropolis and is growing increasingly vulnerable to climate change. more

    One Environmental Science Class
    As the end of my high school career approaches, I am spending a lot of time reflecting on my journey as an environmentalist and wondering where it will take me. The number one thing I’ve realized is how grateful I am that I took an Environmental Science class during my freshman year of high school.

    The Reality Of Climate Change Refugees
    What exactly does it mean to be a refugee? On an international level, “refugee status” is given solely to those who are forced to flee their home country due to war or persecution. According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), nearly 65.6 million people are forcibly displaced, but only 22.5 million receive the status of a refugee. The other 40 million people are accounted for as internally displaced persons (IDPs) or migrants, who are forced to relocate within their own country.   more

    Plans For Earth Club This School Year
    I have been struggling for a long time to develop an action plan for this school year. This is because the Earth Club has not really had a direction or focus, which has made it really difficult to come up with a plan this year that has ambitious but realistic goals. Last school year, the Earth Club purchased water bottles for the middle school, however, it was not as successful as I expected.   more

    The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Review With Results
    “Daily, our eating turns nature into culture, transforming the body of the world into our bodies and minds.” This is a quote from a classic, environmentally-relevant book called, The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals by Michael Pollan covers many sustainability concepts and analyzes American food production and consumer choices.
