60 Minutes presents 15-year old kid who says she ‘put her ankle in climate change’
“60 Minutes” producer Draggan Mihailovich defends kids climate claims: “It’s not gobbledygook that they are spewing.”
But then 60 Minutes features the kids spewing an ocean of climate gobbledygook!
Question to 60 Minutes producer: “Do the kids understand the science here?”
“60 Minutes” producer Draggan Mihailovich answers: “They understand the danger, that is for sure….There is real fear here. Jayden Foytlin, a 15-year-old from Rayne, Louisiana told me, you know ‘when it rains at night, all I can think about is that storm in August of 2016.’ (In Rayne Louisiana) As she puts it she woke up and set foot, put her ankle in climate change basically.”
Jayden Foytlin 15-years old: “I was never expecting to have my house flooded. So to have that whole thing happen it really just felt like it was a dream or as if i was like just losing my mind or going like crazy. That is just something that shouldn’t happen. You can’t really deny that climate change has something to do with it…To the people that think that I’m brainwashed, I just usually say I have encountered climate change firsthand.”
12-year old school climate striker: “If we keep going like this the world will only last for another hundred years or so, which really isn’t long enough… children won’t be around to follow the rules if they don’t do something about climate change…I try not to buy plastic and anything with palm oil. I try not to get my parents to drive me everywhere.
‘I’m going on a school strike today to show that young people can do something about climate change. Sometimes there’s a feeling people can’t do anything. Most of my friends have said the strike is a good idea…I’ve learned about climate change from my parents, from school and from the news.”
