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

Climate

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.

Gue, a six year old from Montana, traveled around his home state with his parents to document the impacts of climate change on his state. His adorable narration about such a pressing issue landed him a spot as one of 15 finalists in the White House Student Film Festival.

Watch his video here:

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 COVID-19 pandemic has revealed both the strengths and limitations of globalization. The crisis has made people aware of how industrialized food production can be, and just how far food can travel to get to the local supermarket. There are many benefits to this system, including low prices for consumers and larger, even global, markets for producers. But there are also costs — to the environment, workers, small farmers and to a region or individual nation's food security.
