Teenage women are rising climate movement leaders. 15-year-old Jamie Margolin writes about being born onto a warming planet exacerbated by the Trump administration. She is being loud and clear about generation Z’s reality of living in a world where water, air and the survival of the planet are threatened. Yet, despite this grim reality, Margolin is emphasizing the importance of teenagers mobilizing against climate change, while simultaneously holding previous generations accountable for their complacency on the issue. In her extra time, she attends activist meetings, takes 3 trips yearly to her state capitol to lobby for climate policies, and puts together civic action projects to protect the planet.
