Climate Change
Edward Hessler

Greta Thunberg is sixteen years old. Each time I hear her speak about climate change I find her articulate, clear, thoughtful, and knowledgable. She has critics, some nasty, who disagree that she is any of these. Others that she is merely a child. Others that she doesn't express their preferred policy prescriptions. So what?! She is serious and asking us to take seriously climate change which her generation will feel in ways we can only imagine.

PBS News Hour's William Brangham interviewed Thunberg September 14, 2019. Consider this as you listen to their conversation: "Although more Americans than ever are worried about climate change, less than 40 percent expect to make “major sacrifices” to tackle the problem."
