A new survey found that 74 percent of these teens believe global warming is a serious problem and are more concerned about it than any other issue including drugs, violence or war. As one of them said on the US Habbo discussion board:
Our parents and our parents parents have messed this world up for us now we are the ones who have to fix it.
The parents still have time to make a good start though. Let's see that they do in Bali.
Read the survey here, our press release here.
