Skip to comments.Alaska teens petition for statewide climate change policy
Posted on 09/12/2017 8:06:53 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
A group of Alaska teenagers has sent a petition to the state's environmental agency in hopes of tightening climate change policy.
The teens' petition calls for the state to reduce carbon emissions, monitor the greenhouse gasses it does emit and come up with a strategy for the future.
Seb Kurland, 17, is among the teens fighting for climate change policy. Kurland said she has noticed the landscape around her hometown of Juneau looks different than it did not that long ago especially because the Mendenhall Glacier is shrinking.
"You know, one of the hard things especially about being a teenager with these concerns is that you don't feel like you can do anything about it," Kurland said. "Basically what we're saying with this petition is, 'Hey you're not doing that!' "

Shut up and go chop some fire wood. Winters a comin’. Go on. Git.
what a bunch of brain washed mush heads.
The “teens’” parents should be arrested for child abuse.
Because we’re all better off taking policy direction from teens. /s
Don’t have to. Climate change will now be making winters warmer, or colder, depending.
Yep, that’s what they seem to be implying. Somehow teenagers have great knowledge and wisdom to make large scale policy decisions.
these kids need to be told that they need to grow up, and have some life experience, before they have input on policy decisions.
So,... You want a state-wide climate change policy. OK! I’ll give you one,... Leave the State and don’t come back! EVER!
Two things in this world that are totally worthless
Tits On A Boar
A teenagers opinion
Let me guess..this is a class excerise?
With a “teacher” telling the kids how to take action?
They don’t want Alaska to get warmer? What?
LOL! Ya think?
It is probably more the public school propaganda teachers than the parents
Remember when you were a teen and you knew so much more than the adults? :-P
This is why they don’t allow them to vote. They are too easily manipulated.
Lol! Burning firewood releases carbon ya know
So does running snowmobiles
I have a better idea. How about moving all teens out of Alaska and sending them to Iraq for an intense course in what life is like in a non-western, non-capitalist culture.
Aye yes, all of 17 and so worldly in ALASKA. WTF!
Teenagers ... is there anything they don’t know? Is there any subject on which they do not have overwhelming personal and professional expertise?
