We need to help address the risks of climate change

The population most at risk for climate change is the least able to stand up for itself: young children.

The era of climate change is already here: a heatwave in mid-June put more than 125 million Americans on extreme heat alert, when more than a millennium of dry conditions caused devastating wildfires and unprecedented flooding in Montana in the southwest.

Global warming poses a huge threat to early childhood development – so much so that last summer UNICEF declared the climate crisis a “child rights crisis”.
