‘Should climate change be a government priority?’


Rosemary Delgado

“Yes. Changes we make now can help future generations. … I don’t think we take it seriously enough because we have to sacrifice today for benefits we won’t even get to see.”

Armond Pinter

Mar Vista

“We probably should make it a priority, but I don’t see it happening. People don’t even want to get a vaccine, … so how’re we going get people to buy electric cars and all the other stuff?”

Michael James

Los Angeles

“We got enough problems with COVID and getting people jobs. … I don’t think it should be a priority right now.  … We can’t worry about something that’s going to happen 50 years from now.”

“I think the government could and should do more about fossil fuels and limiting emissions into the atmosphere.  You can already tell it’s getting hotter and it’s only going to get worse.”
