Former President Barack Obama warned the world Wednesday climate change would be worse than the Chinese coronavirus pandemic.
“We’ve all had to adapt to cope with a pandemic,” Obama wrote on Twitter. “Climate change will force far harsher changes on our kids.”
The president shared a story about young people who continue protesting the world’s failure to enact dramatic policies to reduce carbon emissions and shut down an oil-based economy in favor of one fueled by windmills and solar panels.
“All of us should follow the young people who’ve led the efforts to protect our planet for generations, and demand more of our leaders at every level,” Obama wrote.
