In reply to: It is time to step into the role of the "prospective survivor" - by Britt Wray - Gen Dread

I’ve never had so many journalists reach out to me with interview requests than they have since the heat dome. Some talk about having to rethink assumptions about their kids being able to live to certain ages they’d previously taken for granted. Others ask about their own survival and that of society. In my experience, these are not things that journalists writing for large mainstream outlets have ever raised so freely in conversation before. We are in the midst of a mass awakening, and our task is to figure out how to get the most energy for change and resilience that we can out of it.
