Wynn Bruce death outside Supreme Court stirs debate over climate grief

The death of a climate activist by self-immolation outside of the Supreme Court raises questions, debate over hopelessness and grief about climate change.

On April 20 around 4 p.m., Wynn Bruce knocked on his neighbor’s door in Boulder, Colorado, asking to be driven to a park-and-ride bus station, saying he was meeting a meditation group in Denver. 

Chris King said he dropped off Bruce, who was wearing shorts, a T-shirt and carrying a backpack, offering no hint of what was to come.
