Hi! Hope you're doing well!

This article is the first in a new monthly series of mine which will be a collection of the best articles that I've read over the past few weeks regarding a specific topic. The articles I've read might be older than a month, but nonetheless, they're still really well-written and informative!

To kick things off, I chose to focus on the one and only most important topic for me: the climate crisis.

I feel like this one was the most reassuring piece I have read in a long time - definitely worth a read!
