A climate crisis resolution written by area Middle Schoolers will come before Nebraska lawmakers.
Prairie Hill Learning Center 6th grader Tela Hamric said at today’s news conference in the state capitol that climate change is not a conspiracy theory.
Hamric says it’s not a matter of left or right…..She says that change is coming and if we don’t acknowledge it will affect everyone.
The students’ resolution is asking the legislature to acknowledge that we are in a “climate and ecological crisis caused by humans” and that “the legislature has a moral obligation to combat the climate and ecological crisis”.
The proposal is sponsored by Senator Rick Kolowski with a number of other senators signed on.
