Climate change is the greatest existential threat to our planet

by Peter DeFazio

Climate change is the greatest existential threat to our planet. Government inaction is not an option. This week, I was honored to join youth climate activists Greta Thunberg and the world-changers from Our Children's Trust—three of the youth plaintiffs live in the district that I represent and are suing the federal government for their inaction on climate change. This inaction risks denying these young people a future that is protected by the United States Constitution. They’re giving me great hope that they will force the people who I work with in D.C. to join our movement and save the place we call home.
