The Warmest Years on Record: Questionnaire, 7 minutes, HDV, color and sound, 2018

According to measurements from both NOAA and NASA, the top 5 warmest years on record have all occurred since 2010. I'm curious about how we as individuals are thinking about, processing and discussing this unique moment. The Warmest Years on Record: Questionnaire is a video project and online questionnaire meant to collect responses from a wide breadth of people across the country. I ask questions detailing their experiences of changing weather patterns and local landscapes, the way they navigate the contradictions of living and participating in the carbon economy, and their hopes and fears for the future. The questions also serve as a model for productive conversations around the complicated and personal experiences of living in this time of climate transition.

I would be so grateful if you shared with me some of your own experiences and if you could share the survey with other people in your community. The challenge with this project is to get as many people to fill out the questionnaire as possible, and any help in spreading the word is greatly appreciated. You can also find the link to the survey here. All responses are anonymous.
