Is environmentalism elitist? | The Tylt
In 2018, the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change published a report warning that the world would need to make “unprecedented changes” in order to limit the global temperature increases. Failure to do so will result in widespread famine, coastal flooding, and extreme weather events as early as 2030.

Others argue that environmentalism is a concern for the elite—there's room to care about the climate when it's easy to make ends meet. What do you think?
