    • I absolutely agree with your opinion that climate change cannot be ignored and leaders of nations, developing or developed, must be concerned with the consequences of a warming earth.

    • Hi Addison, I completely agree with you, it makes me happy to see young people seeking action. The internet has given so many people who previously had practically no voice, the opportunity to share their ideas and provoke people and politicians.

Even now as some politicians back people like Greta Thunberg and Tom Steyer, we have to wait and see if any real changes happen, or if it is once again just talk with no action. You also brought up a good point with the short-sightedness of politicians and humans as a whole. We often ignore results that will come after we are gone, ignoring that it will impact our children and future generations.
