“People notice that the weather is changing, and I think it’s our job as professionals and as community members to really sound the alarm—that it’s not just the weather, it’s the climate that’s changing.” – Dr. Irène Mathieu, UVA Health pediatrician
We can’t avoid climate change in Albemarle County. It’s already here, and changes that we might notice and think of as weird weather are actually part of a larger pattern of higher temperatures, more precipitation, and, counterintuitively, more drought.
The following video interviews with local residents and experts will introduce you to the #ClimateConversation happening in Albemarle and arm you with the knowledge you need to take action in your community.
We hope you’ll also check out Albemarle County’s Climate Vulnerability and Risk Assessment at pecva.org/climate.
