Probably the most impressive speaker at the high-level UN meeting was Xiuhtezcatl Roske Martinez, the 15-yr-old spokesperson from Earth Guardians, who represented civil society and came last in the morning discussion. Martinez, a Colorado native, spoke of the wildfires and storms of his native state. “At stake right now is the existence of my generation,” he asserted. He brought up divestment, lawsuits against governments (like the recent case in the Netherlands and another brought in one of the United States), and the people’s march for climate that drew almost half a million participants last September.

The handsome teenager in the suit and tie, long hair flowing straight downward, implored his audience to “Look into our eyes [those of his generation]. Don’t be afraid to think big. The solutions are here.” He urged movement from fossil and nuclear energy toward renewables, saying “the future of energy is no longer down a hole…. The greater the challenge the higher we will rise to overcome it.”

"Let's remember that our young ones are watching and we have a responsibility to be role models, support their expression and give them a voice in their future. In the case of The Earth Guardians, perhaps adults can learn a little from these kids about speaking up for the safety of our communities, the air, and the water."
