There are a lot of misconceptions about what climate leadership looks like, or who fits the mold of an environmentalist. #MyClimateHero is an interactive comic art series depicting heroes of the modern climate security and environmental justice movements. We teamed up with leaders to tell their story of what it means to be a hero, the efforts they have underway to protect and preserve the environment, and opportunities for individuals and communities to take action.
Following the 2016 Presidential Election, groups of librarians, coders, volunteers, and researchers organized data rescue events focused on the preservation of the scientific data necessary for environmental regulation. Fearing that critical climate data might becomeinaccessible under an administration that denies the existence of climate change, these individuals created copies of federal climate data.
