Climate change is taking its toll on water supplies, and especially – on children

As Global Temperatures Rise, Children Must Be Central Climate Change Debates
Rising temperatures, rising sea levels and the increasing likelihood of extreme weather will all alter children’s lives and the lives of their own children. And yet, children are largely left out of discussions about appropriate responses to climate change, according to a journal released by Princeton University and the Brookings Institution.

Forecasts suggest that by 2050, the world could see 200 million environmental migrants, many of whom would be children. For this reason and others, children should be central to such climate change debates. They–as well as future generations–have a much larger stake in the outcome than current generations, authors argue in the latest volume of Future of Children.
