A new poll by the Washington Post shows that 57 percent of American teenagers are frightened by climate change, while an even 52 percent are “angry” over the thought of it.

The poll, which was co-administered by the Kaiser Family Foundation, also shows that 25 percent of American teenagers have participated in a climate-related “walkout” or engaged in other forms of climate activism, such as writing a letter to an elected representative.

Seventy percent of teenage respondents claimed that climate change “will cause a moderate or great deal of harm to people in their generation.”
