The little girl and the tail pipe: the image that haunts me

This is an image that spurs me on to keep at it. For me, it represents two key points.

  • The lack of awareness on what our habits are doing to kids
  • The exhaust is an attack on her future planet

Maybe if I didn't have two kids (ages 11 and 12), I wouldn't be so consumed by this. But then again, with all the headlines about climate change and the ticking "carbon bomb", you wonder why more people with children aren't.

Tell your friends and neighbours to stop their engines whenever they can. It's so simple to do, and it can lead to an entire shift in thinking to protect our children's future.
