Climate change is on track to upend the very foundation of our society. So why is it still a weird thing to cry about? Daniel has spent his twenties organizing campaigns to fight climate change in New York City and State. In this bare-all talk, he delves into the emotional impact of the problem: his own grappling with numbness and grief, and his indecision about the prospect of fatherhood. Daniel makes a bold case for a new kind of mourning, not as a surrender to despair but as a source of human resilience--and just maybe the key to our survival in the coming centuries.
