According to measurements taken by NASA and NOAA, the top 5 warmest years on record have all occurred since 2010. Artist Rachel Garber Cole is curious about how this fact has or has not affected our local Brooklyn community. Please drop by and participate in this oral history project! Rachel is looking for people to talk with her around issues of weather, local landscapes, and the future of our planet. She'll be audio recording the conversation. No previous opinions necessary, just a willingness to have a conversation!
