Northwoods teens call for climate action
MINOCQUA - Teen voices cut through the nearby traffic at Torpy Park in Minocqua Friday.

"I'm terrified of the fact to have children because I don't want to bring them into this earth just to destroy it."

"I think in the 2020 election [climate change] should be our most important issue when we go to vote."

After holding up signs along highway 51, high school senior Maile Llanos shared her concerns.

"I care because it is uncertain if I have a future to look forward to," said Llanos. "I care because the outcome of my future is in the hands of someone else. To all the politicians, I want you to know that the state of our environment is not a partisan issue. Know that climate change will affect you whether you are a Democrat or a Republican."

Llanos started an environmental initiative in Rhinelander called 'Paint It Green', asking local businesses to reduce their carbon emissions. At the rally, she encouraged people to reach out to legislators and tell them it's now or never.

"I can make a change but I need everyone else to actually make a difference as well," said Llanos.
