About the Author

Jeremy grew up in Madagascar and Kenya; he now sees the effect of climate change in a place he calls home. He speaks with great depth and understanding on how history has shaped our response to this issue and how we can respond to become more aware of the world we are all part of. Many people think of racism as the actions and words of racists. Climate change is an example of structural racism – something that will affect people in different ways and can result in divides along racial lines.
