Skip to comments.Dear leaders: You've failed your children on climate change

You failed us.
It's your responsibility to protect the youth.
But when faced with the choice of fossil fuel money for your campaigns, or the wellbeing of your children, you pick fossil fuels.
Today is Earth Day. Please save your phony Earth Day tweets and Facebook posts, I don't want to see them. Put those in a bag along with your toothless "thoughts and prayers" tweets for hurricane victims and dump them in the ocean just like you permit corporations to dump their waste.
Because my generation is so done with your talk.
I'm a 16-year-old sophomore in high school. I have my whole life ahead of me, and there's so much I want to do.
I want to travel the world and see all its natural wonders. I want to run for office so I can be the leader I always wished I had.
But I have to come to terms with the fact that all of the above very well may not happen: because I'm growing up in the early 21st century, a time when the world and all its life systems are falling apart. Climate change has loomed over my every life decision, every time I try to plan for the future.
Prepare to see us in your offices more and more often. Prepare to be voted out.
Leaders, I want you to know that the youth are watching.
See you this July.
A teenage girl who has had enough and is not alone

Poor pathetic child, she has swallowed all the Leftard propaganda.
Dear CNN, I disagree. Opinions vary, and thanks so much for sharing yours.
I want I wan I want!
So, how does she plan on travelling the world without fossil fuels? Solar powered airplanes??
>>But when faced with the choice of fossil fuel money for your campaigns, or the wellbeing of your children, you pick fossil fuels.
Just like eating your broccoli, adults know better than kids. You are demanding a world that you could not survive in.
Children should be seen and not heard.
I think she’s planning on walking or biking or paddling her own boat.
Fake, ginned up emotional outraged calculated to aid a certain group of wealthy Liberals in seizing control of more power by pushing the propaganda that Global warming is a real threat and that Fossil Fuels (people with power and wealth not under their control) are the enemy of mankind.
I see a parallel to what was happening in the 19th century. The "free soil" party was headquartered in New York. They were also promoting a "crises" that wasn't really a "crises."
Oh my, she certainly looks the type that would squeal on her parents to Big Brother, as depicted in Orwell’s 1984.
She had to specify her gender because she uses a boys name.
So you are going to walk and swim?
Because that is the only way you can do that without fossil fuels.
Good luck on that Pacific swim. Watch out for sharks.
Someone who has traveled the world and seen many of it's natural wonders.
Buy some nice walking shoes. Have fun sailing.
>>I want to travel the world and see all its natural wonders.
Stupid girl. Even if you plan to bicycle and paddle a canoe around the world, you will be creating unnecessary carbon footprint. Every calorie you expend traveling for no productive purpose requires energy to buy it. Even if you are using human power, it takes carbon to produce the food that fuels your body and then delivers it to you. If you move, it requires more fuel tha just sitting still.
No we succeed beyond our wildest dreams in blocking a pseudo scientific poltical agenda that would of enslaved you to a corrupt poltical class via the method of “carbon taxes”
She can join the David Hogg and Emma González club in ordering us around.
Pathetic, ignorant skull full of mush. Get elected to be a leader?? Those elected are servants of the people, not leaders but she and so many other Americans don’t understand this. So much more is wrong with this leftist screed but there is not room or time to address it.
She’s wearing clothes that were shipped by trucks and made in China and shipped over on fuel burning ships. No doubt she eats food that was shipped and processed using fossil fuels, and her home is heated by fossil fuel. Will CNN ever find a real story?
Erf mother Gaia, we have sinned against you.
We will repent our sins by donning faggity little cardigans like Jimmy Crater urged us to do instead of turning up the thermostat when we are cold and shivering and by making sure our tires are properly inflated like Hussein urged.
We will recite the communist manifesto 3 times in penance for our sins. Amen
