Is climate change keeping you up at night? You’re not alone. According to a 2020 American Psychiatric Association poll, more than two-thirds of Americans are anxious about the effect of climate change on the planet, and more than half are worried about the impact of climate change on their own mental health. Joseph Pace and Grace Won speak with experts about the mental health effects of climate change and learn tips on how to cope and build resilience.

We'll also hear an update on the Delta variant, and Ethan Elkind takes us on a trip back to San Francisco's Barbary Coast.
