Can a group of young people change the world? Perhaps only they can see the simple truths. With so little time left, and all in the same boat, it is very fair for them to ask, Why are we all fighting each other?

Mount Everest climber Pemba Dorje Sherpa is urging the Australian government to do its part to stop global warming before it's too late.
The world’s fastest Mount Everest climber, Pemba Dorje Sherpa, has called on the Australian government to halve the country’s carbon pollution by the middle of the next decade to help stop the melting of the Himalayas.
Mr Sherpa says his home is changing because of global warming.
“The glaciers around Everest are disappearing and our way of life is being
threatened,” he says.
Mr Sherpa’s call for action coincides with the release of a Friends of the Earth report which says the big melt in the Himalayas is the one of humanity’s single greatest threats from global warming.
“Warming across the greater Himalayas is two-to-four times the global average. This rise in temperature will increase hazards such as avalanches, debris flows, landslides and flash floods,” says FoE spokesperson Damien Lawson.
