Do It For Your Children

Even though serious effects of climate change are already being felt, this is nothing compared to what is predicted for the coming decades. I'm guessing this young woman doesn't have kids yet, but if/when she does, their climate is affected by what we do now.

It's kind of unfortunate that the people who are affected most don't get a say in what happens. But we can overcome that if the current generation acts with integrity, and compassion for our fellow human beings (even the ones not born yet). I hope we are capable of that. As Iain Stewart says in his documentary:
As a species we like to think that we are special. Well this is our chance to prove it.
