On May 5, 2012, the world stood up to Connect the Dots on climate impacts. It was a beautiful, inspiring, occasionally heartbreaking day. It’s hard to describe what it felt like to watch the world come together like that—but this video comes close. If you haven’t seen it yet, please take 90 seconds to watch and spread it around.
On Climate Action Day, May 5th Arianna Varuolo, intern at NYIPL, coordinated a “Connect the Dots” event for Climate Impact Day along with Gerry Falco, Vice President. They joined at Gate of Heaven Cemetery with family and friends where a “freak tornado” went through and devastated what was once forest. The group is surrounding an uprooted tree to make the connection between severe weather and climate change.
