Fed up with young climate activists: “Adults aren’t listening” | National policy


WASHINGTON (AP) — The climate change generation says officials talk too much, listen too little, and act even less. And they’re fed up.

“Instead of talking about how to solve the climate crisis, they are negotiating about how to keep polluting,” said Mitzy Violeta, a 23-year-old indigenous Mexican activist. “Youth movements are realizing that the solution will not be found in international gatherings,” like the one taking place in Egypt.

“We are upset by the inaction that is being done,” said Jasmine Wynn, 18, of the environmental group Treeage.
