Is there something weird going on with the SoCal climate this summer?

Are your tomatoes getting scorched? Did you just buy AC for the first time ever? Is the water at the beach feeling unusually warm?

We’re curious about how climate change is already affecting Southern California.

Your observations from your backyard, neighborhood, park or local hike can help us understand what’s happening and whether it's a trend.

We’re not asking you to make scientific decisions about climate change. We’re just asking you to tell us what you've seen out there this summer.

We want you to:
- Notice something weird or different.
- Tell us about it, with as much detail as possible.

And we will try to figure out what's going on.

Everything you share will be read by journalists only, and your responses are confidential unless you tell us we may publish them.
