Tamar Moss has long been a climate justice advocate. She is deeply concerned about climate change, and wants to do everything in her power to mitigate it. In middle school and high school she was a leader of an interfaith environmental youth group. She helped with a project that brought solar panels to 40 homes in Bloomington, Indiana. She also helped train hundreds of youth in weatherizing homes, simple tasks that reduce a building’s energy use.
She is currently an Environmental Studies major at Brandeis University. Tamar is a part of Brandeis Climate Justice, a student organization that urges the university to divest from fossil fuels. At the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, she researched how urban heat increases energy consumption and disproportionately affects some socio-economic groups.
