We’ve all visited museums. We know what art museums and history museums look like. But what does a museum look like that focuses on climate and climate change? What exactly does it do, and who works there? To answer these questions, we chatted with Dr. Dilshanie Perera, who in September joined the New York City Climate Museum as postdoctoral fellow in climate and inequality.
