Teenagers for Climate Action — TV interview and more information

The March 2021 interview on “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” TV series features two teenagers discussing the climate crisis, sharing their experiences and insights, and urging smart actions.

The March 2021 episode of “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” TV series (also watchable on your computer) helps us move ahead toward solving the climate crisis.  It helps people of all ages understand why young people are so deeply concerned – and it informs us of some of the positive ways teenagers are taking action.

Our guests are two juniors at Capital High School in Olympia, Washington.  Both have been climate activists for perhaps two years now.  Rebecca McMillin Hastings is president of Capital High School’s Climate Club, and Karina Greenlee is the club’s vice president.  Glen has worked with them many times and has found them well informed, energetic and using positive attitudes to help them accomplish good results.

Glen summarized the scientific evidence that proves the climate crisis is real and is caused by burning fossil fuels.

The guests discussed the hard realities how the climate crisis seriously affects their future and how young people feel about this.  They discussed relevant needs and values that motivate them and other young people to work on solving the climate crisis. They summarized a number of smart, effective activities that have organized.  They linked the climate with other social justice issues and urged adults to listen to young people and work together to solve the problems.

Thurston County’s people with cable TV can watch it 12 times throughout the month on channel 22 (every Monday at 1:30 pm, every Wednesday at 5:00 pm, and every Thursday at 9:00 pm).
