We usually think of climate change as a standalone issue that started with the Industrial Revolution. But, in fact, to stop the climate crisis, we first have to dismantle the systems of oppression that caused it. Jamie Margolin is an activist, student, author, and co-founder of the youth climate justice movement Zero Hour, which mobilizes young people all over the world for emergency climate action. Her activism is rooted in her love of both the American Pacific Northwest, where she grew up, and the wilderness of her mother’s home country, Colombia, both of which are deteriorating due to human causes. Her identity as a queer, Jewish, Latina motivates her to fight for the marginalized and get to the root of the problems that hold down our world. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
