While American Politicians are hesitant to push the climate issue both nationally and internationally, a youth speaks out against inaction.
Thanks to recent big pushes by the energy industry, there has been over a 15 percentage point shift in America’s belief in global warming. Unfortunately, that shift has been towards the opinion that the consensus of the scientific community is nothing but an elaborate conspiracy perpetrated by “so called” expects against the larger community that can’t be bothered to do any research themselves. With pubic belief as it is, politicians have been hesitant to take on the issue directly.
That seems to be the case in Durban, South Africa, where the international community has gathered to discuss climate change. However, given the “climate” of the talks, this conference will likely not see any major moves to legally binding changes necessary to have a sizable impact.
