Image Statement: The summer of 2023 in Phoenix, Arizona was a record-breaker. Even for a native Phoenician like me, it was brutal - 31 consectutive days spiking over 110° F. There would be more before we’d emerge from those endlessly hot summer days. With each event like this, no matter where you are on planet earth, it is further proof that climate change is real, in force, and building. Our days are numbered.
