"Half of my life left. So it's it's a different issue for our generation because it's our future we're talking about. And so I wanna get a sense from Danielle. There's a lawsuit right now. That's being brought by twenty one plaintiffs their ages eleven to twenty two and they're demanding that the government fight climate change. They're basically making the argument similar to what you just did Kyle that, you know, in many ways, this is going to affect their future. But it also deprives them their constitutional rights. I'm wondering if you think that this is an effective way to go about making the change that we're all talking about today. I think it's certainly a good way to open a dialogue on the subject as far as an acting actual substantive change goes, I'm not sure it will accomplish too much. I think a more productive. Approach would be to find legislation that you support and lobby as a constituent on behalf of it. As I mentioned earlier, I think that legislators are very willing to work on these issues on something that we're told very often is that they just don't hear from their constituents about it. And if the people who are voting them into office, aren't you know, saying that this is a priority for them. Then lawmakers aren't going to prioritize these issues so we need to be more vocal as constituents. So let's talk about that. Because we've got three fantastic folks here at this metaphorical table if you will. And I'd love to hear what each of you thinks could be a potential fixed. Kyle let's start with you. So young evangelical for climate action for a long time kind of our policy position was simply look young evangelical 's want lawmakers to find solutions to this for a while that was enough and recently, the conversation nationally has been moving far enough where we need to start drilling down and and supporting specific policies top of them is a revenue neutral non-regressive carbon tax. So it would be a steadily rising fee on carbon dioxide to send a strong signal to the market that we're finally going to start accounting for the true costs of digging up and burning fossil fuels, and and this would be revenue neutral, so wouldn't grow the government in any way. Meaning it would either offset existing taxes, perhaps lowering income taxes or or or another tax or it could be the revenues could be distributed. Two households as a dividend. Check. However at the same time a carbon tax won't account for other really harmful toxins and greenhouse gases. So we need targeted regulations as well at the same time as we have a strong broad bipartisan tax on carbon. Danielle your thoughts. I would agree with Kyle that our solutions need to not grow the government. And so where I would disagree with Kyle is when it comes to carbon taxes, I will say some solutions absolutely include lowering emissions and offsetting carbon. For example, in two thousand fourteen Delta Airlines voluntarily offset I nine hundred ninety five thirty seven thousand tonnes of carbon through reforestation. And I think that incentivizing companies to do things like that will help immensely and the nausea your thoughts. How what are your solutions here? Yeah. So just calling on like the point if the tax zero hour actually doesn't support any form of carbon tax because big corporation could get by that easily because of how much money they're already making. But in addition to that, we think that one major thing that can be done is expanding public transport. I personally don't think that everyone needs to own a car, but. Right now. I mean that is reality because we have a lack of options with public transportation. I have to say just between the three perspectives. We have at this roundtable. I'm feeling very motivated. I'm wondering is your generation going to be the one that finally gets this, right? I believe we will be. I think our generation is very motivated on environmental issues climate is a very pressing environmental issues. So I think that worth generation that will take action on it. I agree. And one of the things, I'm most inspired. By is the fact that you know, we have a conservative a liberal and a moderate here having a civil conversation recognizing common ground, and recognizing the common work that we all have to do together. We're sick and tired of it. And our futures are on the line. We're all in this together. And we all have to find solutions that we can live with. And I think that's what we're doing is a generation ends in Asia, your thoughts. I think definitely if like young people actually like start getting involved, and these organizations that are working on climate actually, really try to connect with young people in show them that this is an issue that should really be looked that..

"But do you see the van Jellico community having sort of generation gap when it comes to how they approach climate change. Absolutely. What we find when we travel around to evangelical Christian college campuses, when we're talking in churches is particularly among our generation a few years ago we had to begin conversations way at the beginning. And now we're able to kind of jump right in. So I think we're definitely seeing a gap generation Lee speaking, you know, we're we're the first generation millennials in particular. We're the first generation who are really going to have to live with the consequences of a changing climate.

"WNYC studios is supported by MSNBC. The countdown is on for the most important midterm elections in generation and MSNBC is breaking down all the critical races. Be there for morning Joe. Until the last vote is counted Tuesday November sixth on MSNBC. This is the takeaway. I'm tansy Vega and midterm elections are just days away and in adds to voters Republicans and Democrats alike are focusing on issues like healthcare, taxes, jobs and immigration. But one thing that's not getting a lot of attention climate change, less than half of one percent of campaign ads explicitly mentioned climate change that despite recent warnings from the United Nations and others that predict catastrophic damage is early as twenty forty our next guest take those warnings seriously and say that these issues need to be talked about more, regardless of where you stand on the political spectrum Kyle mired Skop. I'm twenty nine years old on the national organizer and spokesperson for young evangelical for climate action. Moderate independent and climate change is a top issue for me. Hi, my name is Danielle richer. I am twenty two years old. And I work as the of the American conservation coalition. I am a conservative. Climate is a top three issue for me. My name is Ozzy Ernest. Eighteen years old the co founder of a youth led climate Justice organization called zero our climate is definitely my number one issue. And I am a liberal Kyle Danielle and the Najji arm Eleni lls, the only generation in which a clear majority believed that there's solid evidence of climate change. And who also say humans are the primary cause and within the Republican party. Specifically, there's a growing gap between millennials and older Republicans on the impact of climate change. And whether the government is doing enough to address it we start with Kyle of young van delicate for climate action. I grew up in a conservative Christian home that taught me many many great things how to love the world how to love people love Jesus, but not a how to care about climate change just wasn't on the radar and then a series of events in my life, including my older brother who I respect deeply kind of. Having his own conversion on the issue contributed to me beginning to understand the connections between my faith and the issue of changing climate. And so for me as I think about climate change. I can't think of it a separated from my commitment to the gospel to love God and to love people, and when I look out at the impacts of a changing climate, I see that it's harming God's creation, and then it's harming my neighbors. So for me acting on climate change is a moral issue. And it's a way for me to deepen Pauling as a Christian to follow Jesus by loving God. And loving people the nausea elect to get your thoughts on that. Why is climate change something that's important to you? Yeah. So for me, I definitely like very into sustainability and thinking about conservation of like wildlife sanctuaries and Amel life for a really long time. But it wasn't until starting my work with zero hour that I was really focused. On climate Justice. And for me, I think it's very important to see like climate change is very human issue. And that we need to provide Justice for people who are being adversely impacted by the fossil fuel industry. So that's something that I've been working to do. And that's why I really want to be involved with climate Justice organizing, and what about you? Why is climate change key issue for you? Sure. So opposite of Kyle. I was actually raised a very progressive home. My father works in the solar industry, and so I- deals such as protecting the earth where ingrained in me from very young age. And when I was given the opportunity to work on environmental issues, I jumped at it because it's just something that I've always been very passionate about. So I wanna get a little more specific here. So Danielle you said you arrays in a progressive home. But now your conservative, you're Republican. How do you feel about the way the GOP has dealt with climate change? And do you see there being some sort of generational divide between older reply? Publicans and younger Republicans on this issue. So I think that historically the GOP has done a pretty good job of taking care of the environment. Generally, I believe that once climate change or global warming came into the discussion, they sort of shied away from environmental issues, and I was in the last decade hasn't been as stellar as it could be. There's definitely a lot of room for improvement. I will say that in my work on Capitol Hill speaking with legislators a lot of them are very willing to find compromises and to act on climate. And why do you think that there is so much you said that sort of thing they've shied away from it? But what do you think has it become too politicized in the party right now for a sexually see some change right now? I don't think so I believe in the early two thousand you saw a lot of polarization around the issue, especially as the rhetoric tended to be towards Alborz like the entire earth will be flooded by twenty twenty people don't really respond well to those types of scare. Tactics and that type of rhetoric and so as that really became the main narrative people walked away from the issue, and I think that if we can kind of calm down and find some common ground on the issue between both parties, it can definitely be something where bipartisan work is accomplished, the nausea. Wanna bring you in here. Also, what do you think the Democrats have done? And do you think they're doing enough? I mean, I feel like there's less than one percent of the campaign ads to see all know that are going out before the midterms are talking about climate change. So on either side of the political divide. There doesn't seem to be a lot of messaging. So do you think the Democrats are doing enough? And if so why haven't they made this a bigger issue? Yeah. I think definitely the Democrats are doing a lot of work for the environment. But there's a lot more that can be done. Definitely the Obama administration with putting up regulations on vehicles. Like stopping the addition of more fossil fuel infrastructure with pipelines was good. But a lot of pipelines did get expanded the US during his administration, and definitely one thing that has a lot of people that I've talked to who are my age very angry about from the Democratic Party is that the Democrat National Committee went back on a resolution that they passed saying that the DNC would not take any donations from the fossil fuel industry. I think right now a lot of officials and candidates running for office aren't really focusing on the environment as something that's one of their key points for their campaign because it's not really an issue. That's this flashy thing that people can point at and say, oh like as elected official, I stopped this thing. It's more of an issue of prevention rather than reaction, which is I think something that we see a lot more all ticks tile. I want to ask you as well. You mentioned this a little bit. In in your first answer. But do you see the Jellico community having a sort of generation gap when it comes to how they approach climate change. Absolutely. What we find when we travel around to evangelical Christian college campuses, when we're talking in churches is particularly among our generation a few years ago we had to begin conversations way at the beginning. And now we're able to kind of jump right in. So I think we're definitely seeing a gap generation Lee speaking, you know, we're we're the first generation millennials in particular.

I'm going to be in my mid forties by then, you know, I'm going to have hopefully a half of my life left. So it's it's a different issue for our. Ration- because it's our future we're talking about. And so I wanna get a sense from Daniel. There's a lawsuit right now. That's being brought by twenty one plaintiffs their ages eleven to twenty two and they're demanding that the government fight climate change, their basically making the arguments and learn what you just did Kyle that, you know, in many ways, this is going to affect their future. But it also deprives them of their constitutional rights. I'm wondering if you think that this is an effective way to go about making the change that we're all talking about today. I think it certainly a good way to open a dialogue on the subject as far as an acting actual substantive change goes, I'm not sure it will accomplish too much. I think more productive approach would be to find legislation that you support and lobby as a constituent on behalf of it. As I mentioned earlier, I think that legislators are very willing to work on these issues on something that were told very often. This that they just don't hear from their constituents about it. And if the people who are voting them into office, aren't you know, saying that this is a priority for them than lawmakers aren't going to prioritize these issues. So we need to be more vocal as constituents. So let's talk about that. Because we've got three fantastic folks here at this metaphorical table, if you will and love to hear what each of you things could be a potential fix Kyle. Let's start with you. So young evangelical for climate action for a long time kind of our policy position was simply look young even gels. Want lawmakers to find solutions to this? And for a while that was enough and recently, the conversation nationally has been moving far enough where we need to start drilling down and supporting specific policies. Top of them is a revenue neutral non-regressive carbon tax. So it would be a steadily rising fee on carbon dioxide to send a strong. Signal to the market that we're finally going to start accounting for the true costs of digging up and burning fossil fuels, and this would be revenue neutral, so wouldn't grow the government in any way. Meaning it would either offset existing taxes perhaps lowering income taxes or or another tax or it could be the revenues could be distributed to households as a dividend. Check. However at the same time a carbon tax won't account for other really harmful toxins and greenhouse gases. So we need targeted regulations as well at the same time as we have a strong broad bipartisan tax on carbon. Danielle your thoughts. I would agree with Kyle that our solutions need to not grow the government. And so where I would disagree with Kyle is when it comes to carbon taxes, I will say some solutions absolutely include lowering emissions and offset. Putting carbon for example in two thousand fourteen Delta Airlines voluntarily offset on nine hundred ninety five thirty seven thousand tonnes of carbon through reforestation. And I think that incentivizing companies to do things like that will help immensely and the nausea your thoughts. How what are your solutions here? Yeah. So just calling on the point of the tax zero hour actually doesn't support any form of carbon tax because big corporation could get by that easily because of how much money they're already making. But in addition to that, we think that one major thing that can be done is expanding public transport. I personally don't think that everyone needs to own a car. But right now that is the reality because we have a lack of options with public transportation. I have to say just between the three perspectives. We have at this roundtable. I'm feeling very motivated. I'm wondering is your generation going to be the one that finally gets? This right. I believe we will be I think our generation is very motivated on environmental issues. I think that climate is a very pressing environmental issues. So I definitely think that the generation that will take action on it. I agree. And I one of the things I'm most inspired. By is the fact that you know, we have a conservative liberal in a moderate here having a civil conversation recognizing common ground, and recognizing the common work that we all have to do together. We're sick and tired of it in. Our futures are on the line. We're all in this together. And we all have to find solutions that we can live with. And I think that's what we're doing as a generation ends Naji your thoughts. I think definitely if like young people actually start getting involved, and these organizations that are working on climate actually, really try to connect with young people in show them that this is an issue that should really be looked at than we can definitely accomplish something.
