Research and theory only stay in their books until the crisis they reveal burns down your house. Aurora Flynn is a climate researcher who saw first hand the destruction warming temperatures can unleash. While working in California, Flynn had to flee the 2019 fires that swept the state, mirroring the all consuming flames that captured the world’s attention in Brazil and Australia. Flynn saw a breakdown around her that further proved her thesis: climate change must be met with compassion and transformational change of both the individual and society. We speak with the Ronin scholar and founder of the Ouroboros Genesis Agency about her experiences.
