Paul and I are in the same AP Government and Politics class. Today we were having a class discussion or, HOT TOPIC, as our teacher calls it. In the hot topic, a group of 3 or 4 students chooses a political issue that is relevant to today. Today's group choose climate change, and we discussed whose responsibility it is to administer legislation and regulations regarding climate change. Paul and I's opinions on the matter differ, and we posed each other with hypotheticals to try to get to know each other's perspective on how to move forward in the wake of scientific research, as well a public shift to unrest in the form of the global climate strike and a demand for action from activists like Greta Thunberg.
