POLL: Where Do You Stand on Climate Change?
Greta Thunberg, a 16-year old Swedish climate activist, lit up the stage at the UN Climate Summit on Monday. In the process, she reignited a global conversation about the effects of climate change.
Thunberg – who was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome in 2011 – graced the cover of TIME Magazine in May of this year, and her activism has been recognized on a worldwide scale.
At Monday’s summit, Thunberg delivered an impassioned and poignant message to the world leaders on-hand: if we don’t get serious about protecting the environment, the next generation will be unable to reverse the catastrophic damage caused by today’s generation.
Have a look at Thunberg’s speech below:

In recent years – and especially in recent months – a shift towards protecting the environment has swept the globe. Just last week, the largest climate rally ever took place across the globe. In New York, 250,000 people turned out to draw attention to the climate crisis.
So…where do you stand on the climate change revolution?
