Youth Climate Activists Disrupt Trump Coal Event in Poland



As the United Nations climate conference enters its second week in Katowice, Poland, US President Donald Trump's Administration saw fit to promote coal and other fossil fuels at a side event on Monday. Young climate activists from the US were having none of it and a group disrupted the COP24 coal event. They began by laughing when the speaker suggested fossil fuels were important and then broke into a coordinated chant of "Keep it in the ground."

At the same time here in the United States, hundreds of young climate activists gathered in the halls of Congress and showed up at California Representative Nancy Pelosi's office in Washington DC demanding that she definitively back a bill dubbed the "Green New Deal."

GUEST: Kristy Drutman, SustainUS delegate and the California Digital Campaigner with 350.org. She is also the creator of a podcast and media series called Brown Girl Green
