Climate warning

The minds of young people need to captured early for them to make wise decisions now and in future. The report by the Center for Countering Digital Hate showing that even the young ones in UK have embraced climate denialism is very disappointing.

    Fear, anxiety, and hopelessness surrounding climate change can lead some young people to deny its severity as a coping mechanism.

      Leaving in denial is a major setback and it's high time we embrace climate reality

        this is a dangerous trend that threatens the sustainability of the future since we are looking up to these young people to make the change this planet deserves but if they are misinformed they can't take the required actions.

              @esther_wanjiku_785 The youth have a right to get these critical information about climate. Deniying there is climate change is expensive ignorance.

                @esther_wanjiku_785 I concur. Our education systems should incorporate climate change classes to inform and do away with the sort of ignorance portrayed by climate deniers

                    It's concerning to learn that a third of UK teenagers believe climate change is exaggerated, as per the report by the Center for Countering Digital Hate. Early education and awareness are crucial for shaping informed decisions among the youth. The prevalence of climate denialism among young minds is disheartening and emphasizes the need for comprehensive climate education to foster a collective understanding of the urgent challenges we face. Addressing misinformation is vital to ensuring future generations are equipped to contribute meaningfully to the fight against climate change

                        This is concerning, the government must create awareness through school programs and workshop to stop this alarming behaviour.

                          Education remains a powerful tool in shaping a sustainable future, and efforts should be directed towards bridging the gap in awareness and perception.

                            @princess_nel_268 more engagements through school curriculums and school environmental seminars could help in bridging this gap.

                            It's horrifying for the leaders of tomorrow being in the forefront as climate deniers. Climate awareness should be the key to switch their minds and instead embrace best climate change practices.
