A lesson for adults on climate action

Kids are skipping lessons to protest because they grasp what's at stake, says Claudia Kemfert in Capital.

"This is the generation that will bear the brunt of the terrible effects of irreversible climate change," says Claudia Kemfert, Professor of Energy Economics and Sustainability, in an opinion piece in the German magazine Capital (In German). That's why kids are joining the Fridays for Future movement, participating in politics, and exercising their right to strike.
