In fewer than 50 days, millions of members of Generation Z will have a chance to cast their first ballots in a U.S. presidential election in which polls show climate change and the environment ranking among young voters’ top issues.
EarthBeat spoke with seven young Christians about the election, their vote and climate change. All plan to vote. Four will do so for the first time. Five have decided between the candidates; two are holding out until Election Day. All said climate change is affecting their lives, and all see their faith influencing how they vote and why they care about the climate crisis.
