Millennials Want to Rescue the World from Environmental Ruin

Share Article

CMRubinWorld asks young leaders and innovators around the globe to share their concerns and solutions about the environmental changes affecting every village, city and country.

The growth and prosperity the world has experienced in past decades has, according to the OECD’s research, “been accompanied by environmental pollution and natural resource depletion.” The number of natural disasters has significantly increased. OECD research estimates that by 2050, carbon dioxide emissions from fuel combustion will have increased by more than 50%. Biodiversity is decreasing due to deforestation. These significant environmental changes will impact our entire world unless we all start to collectively think green. Can Millennials turn ‘words’ into ‘action’ and reverse the devastating effects of these issues?

“Climate change isn’t something that “will” come upon us: it is now,” writes Harmony Siganporia.

“While energy issues are usually extremely partisan,” notes Francisco Hernandez, “Millennials are far more interested in the effects of energy use on the environment. They are more inclined—both on the left and the right—to believe in climate science and to support renewable energy.” This is because millennials understand that they will be, “forced to live in the world that we are shaping now—a world hurtling towards environmental ruin.”

“Climate change is not only a discussion of politics and economics, it is a discussion of ethics,” highlights Wilson Carter III. “We need to decide what kind of world we want to leave for our children.”
