How can people like me who are too young to vote help prevent Global Warming?
The former future President of the United States gave a thoughtful response.
He also spoke of Gandhi's notion of truth (satyagraha, though he could not remember the word at the time), and how this would apply to the issues of Global Warming today.
It is difficult to find hope given the political situation we have now, but my daughter and I found his answer inspiring.
She is writing a letter to each of our Senators and our representative. Gore also spoke about the importance of work at the local level, that each city that voted to implement Kyoto would help, so I am going to encourage her to write to our local representatives as well. I would urge all parents out there to have their children do the same, as they don't have the time to wait until they can vote on this issue.
