Most adults are worried about things like pollution, global
warming and depleting the world's limited resources. It shouldn't
come as any surprise to hear that kids are concerned about the very
same issues. What can Chicago kids do to protect our environment
and conserve resources at home and school? What examples of
pollution do they see around Chicago in their day-to-day lives? Do
they think that our environmental issues will be better or worse
when they are adults?
We reached out to 13 Chicago area kids to share their thoughts
on everything from water conservation to endangered animals to
Mother Earth (who is that lady anyway?).
