Roslyn Smith of Black Women's Agenda on Educating Girls about Environmental Issues
"I think we've taken a lot for granted, that we just assume that things are going to be the way they've been. ... Right now, where they never had storms like this before, and some of the climate that we're, you know, getting, experiencing around the world now in different parts, it's completely different than what is has been before."
Climate change is one of the biggest threats in our society today. As temperature and precipitation patterns change, the delicate balance of climate, weather events and life is disrupted. World leaders - from government, the business sector, and even grass-roots organizations - are taking steps to act now to slow, and eventually reverse climate change. Roslyn Smith of Black Women's Agenda discusses efforts to educate girls about environmental issues.
