When you are a full-time fun professional, as I am, climate change can be extremely challenging. Changes in the climate are having a big impact on a lot of activities that are really fun.
Take swimming, for example. I love to swim, and when I can’t go to the beach (because my staff say I bring too much sand home!), we go to a freshwater reservoir in McClaren Park, the second biggest park in my hometown, San Francisco. But last year, when California was going through yet another year of way-below-average rainfall and above-average temperatures, the reservoir water warmed up and toxic algae began to grow. I couldn’t go swimming there for almost two months!
