Clinton’s Commentary on Climate Change and Children

A Focus on Youth and the Environment

Hillary Clinton joined Gloria Calderón Kellett, showrunner, and Anna Jane Joyner, founder of Good Energy, at the Pendry West Hollywood to discuss the intersection of climate change and children’s development. Through her Clinton Foundation’s Too Small to Fail program, Clinton emphasized the importance of incorporating climate awareness into Hollywood projects to reach a wider audience.

“There have been many commendable efforts to raise awareness about climate change,” Clinton noted. “However, the overwhelming information can leave people unsure about their role. We need stories that empower individuals with actionable steps, complementing the large-scale changes required at higher levels.”

Highlighting Natural Disasters and Future Impacts

Clinton pointed out the increasing frequency of natural disasters as a result of climate change. She underscored the economic impacts and the anticipated rise in climate migration. “Climate migration will dominate the next 25 years,” she predicted. “Insects moving to higher latitudes will lead to more diseases. Every climate issue has a greater impact on children.”
