Teens are pledging not to have kids until government takes climate change seriously

By

Children and teenagers today will be among the first to witness the worst effects of climate change. And one of the reasons they'll face such difficult challenges is because of the world's growing, and increasingly wealthy, human population. It's no secret that the richer a person is, the more carbon they emit

As people from developing nations become better off, we'll likely emit even more carbon as a species and warm the planet further. That is unless governments around the world unite and do something to combat it. But now, teenagers around the world are making a statement to governments: take climate change seriously or we'll stop having kids.
