Climate change is here, is now, and it’s not that shy. If floodings all over paired with temperature above 20 degrees with less than a month to go before Christmas are not big enough signals (let’s not forget summer fires and last year’s storms that destroyed many forests), then I don’t know what it will be.

Maybe something to do with my moving into a city where art is at the forefront, maybe something to do with the need of passing scientific messages through to people that don’t speak ‘scientist’ (and trust me, I know we are a difficult bunch to understand...). Whatever the reason, it seems to be something recurrent, and I am attending many events that are trying to showcase this.
