Andy Shrader

Today in Orange County, things seem normal, even idyllic. Don’t be fooled. In a year, in a month, in a week, we could be refugees. We are living in a climate emergency, and it’s time to start acting like it.

I am here to say, our house is on fire… I want you to act as you would in a crisis. I want you to act as if our house is on fire. Because it is.
