Much has been written about the mechanics of climate change, about its physical manifestations, and about how we are—and are not—addressing it as a society. Recently Orion asked six authors to describe what the changing climate is doing to them personally—how it is affecting their hearts and souls. Here’s what they had to say:

A Quartet
Gretel Ehrlich

Anticipating Our Future
Jared Duval

Seeing Paradise
Jay Griffiths

The Source of Hope
Peter Sawtell

The Inner Climate
Pico Iyer

The Moral Climate
Carl Safina
