Dear Human at the Edge of Time
In the U.S., the Fifth National Climate Assessment (NCA5) report is underway, and groups of scientists from all over the country and Caribbean are overseeing the synthesis of published research for regional and topic-specific chapters. The NCA5 process is rooted in transparency and inclusivity by “offer[ing] multiple opportunities for public participation.”
As an additional opportunity to participate in the NCA5, we feel that we must tell our stories and our communities’ stories of climate change alongside this scientific information. This is a call for poems that can amplify our lived experiences of climate impacts in the Southeast and other regions; and for poets to contribute to the urgent conversations on environmental justice.
