Climate change and the teenagers putting it all on the (picket) line

The UN has declared the climate crisis an existential threat to humanity. Scientists warn that rising temperatures will have catastrophic effects on our weather, our food, our homes.

On September 20 millions of people flooded streets around the world in the largest ever strike action against climate change. One of the many student organisers of the event is 15-year-old Harriet O’Shea Carre, who co-founded the Australian school strike with her friends Milou and Callum after being inspired by Greta Thunberg.

But if we fail to stop climate change, can we just… dump Earth and move to Mars? Dr Jon Clarke is the president of The Mars Society (Australia). While he’s not advocating wholesale removal to the red planet, he thinks that by looking outwards we might develop technology to help us become more sustainable on Earth.
