A Canadian city is putting warning labels on gas pumps
Imagine going to fill up your tank and seeing a label on the pump that says what you are doing was causing climate change.
The city of North Vancouver in Canada is launching a new program to encourage drivers to think about being more energy-efficient when they drive — and that fossil fuels contribute to climate change.
The city council heard about the plan during a presentation last summer by teenage climate change activist Emily Kelsall.
At 18, she's already a seasoned climate change campaigner and public speaker. She learned about an effort by the climate activist organization
to get warning labels on gas pumps.
Kelsall contacted Our Horizon founder Robert Shirkey.
Shirkey worked with the teenager to help her make a compelling case to the mayor and city council.
