Wanted: The Next Generation of Climate Change Leaders

Scientists took Mother Earth’s temperature much as you would to determine if someone is ill. In a State of The climate report, US Scientists determined she is not well and getting sicker. Her oceans are heating up and rising. Her snowcapped glaciers are melting. Carbon dioxide, methane, and nitrous oxide have all reached record levels in the atmosphere. She is very hot and getting hotter. What this green goddess needs is a group of leaders to the rescue!
