6 Year Old Gets President Obama's Attention With This Climate Change Video

With the madness that is the Republican Presidential field and all the news of the Koch Brothers buying elections, it can feel like we will never take meaningful action on climate change.

Of 1,500 submissions, Gue was invited to screen his video at the White House—the youngest of the finalists. And he even got a humorous shot out from President Obama.

The speed and scale of the response to COVID-19 by governments, businesses and individuals seems to provide hope that we can react to the climate change crisis in a similarly decisive manner - but history tells us that humans do not react to slow-moving and distant threats.
