When the media warned Californians about a "bomb cyclone" expected in the forecast on Jan. 4, reporter Robin Meadows restocked her pantry and emergency cabinet and begged her husband to stay home.

KneeDeep Times is a digital magazine featuring stories from the frontlines of climate resilience. Resilience is defined as the ability to recover quickly from or adjust easily to change. Its geographic focus is the San Francisco Bay Area, but the magazine also explores West Coast, national, and global topics relevant to local action.

It also examines responses from communities of all sizes as the impacts of climate change intensify by connecting with real people and real places. The magazine also interprets the meaning and impacts of policies, projects and investments to address climate change.

KneeDeep Times launched in September 2021 with funding from the Bay Area Regional Collaborative (BARC). In 2022, the magazine received its first grant for a special investigative series from the CO2 Foundation via the magazine’s non-profit fiscal agent Urban Ecology Inc. The publication is an independent magazine and does not represent the views and opinions of its funders.
