MARINE MURDERER
by NANCY WHITECROSS

"The ocean was calm that day; there was no wind, only the sun beating down on my head as the dive boat sped on top of the water. The sky reflected an azure blue, with not a cloud in the sky.  My fingertips gently touched the water. People asked me what I was doing when they heard me calling my friends to come and play with us. Within minutes, they had surrounded the boat, jumping gracefully in and out of the water. The bottlenose dolphins knew I was there; they waited for me to join them..."

THE PROMISE OF GRANITE

REMEMBERING WHAT I FIGHT FOR
by PALOMA SIEGEL

"Watching these icebergs that broke off the Greenland ice sheet pour into the ocean is magnificent and terrifying. I am sixteen, and I already know too much about climate change to sleep at night. It is all I talk about with my friends, all I learn about at school, and all I feel as I sit here in the Arctic. I hear climate projections in terms of my birthday..."

CRACKING OPEN
by JAX HELMICK

"I’m staring straight into the Sun, and it’s staring back at me,
Neither of us have gone blind yet—
I’m throwing salt out of my windows, towards the roads
Slicked with ice and snow and run off from gutters...
