Whether you call it climate anxiety, solastalgia, eco-anger or even climate grief, it’s clear that the changing climate is having an impact on our wellbeing. But by talking about it and naming it, experts tell Blow, we can understand it — and have the ability to channel our grief, anger and worry into activism that will help blunt some of the impacts of our changing world.
