"I grew up in Alaska and there I witnessed the effects of climate change firsthand in the form of unusually warm winters with less snow and hotter summers. Now, living in the arid Southwest, I feel increasingly concerned about our future. Through UNM LEAF I hope to affect meaningful, necessary change that will improve our odds of survival in the face of potentially catastrophic climate change."
