My name is Shilpita Mathews. I am a MSc in Environmental Economics and Climate Change student at the LSE and a Research Assistant at the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment.
Welcome to Climactic Tales – a photo story blog reflecting on the climate crisis.
As a student of climate economics, I frequently write on the intersectionality of climate change with development, and the impact it has on human lives.
In all of this, I often long to hear the stories that are at the forefront of the crisis. And to use my creative imagination, when there is a haunting silence between myself and those adapting to climate change today. This blog aims to fill this void.
Using Creative Commons photos showcased by Climate Visuals, I present narratives of less than 100 words, piecing together stories of hope and despair that define the global climate emergency.
