Tonatiuh became climate change activist at an age of 6 after he saw Leonardo DiCaprio’s environmental documentary, 11th Hour.
At a young age, he also spoke at a rally regarding climate change.
The youth director of Earth Guardians, Tonatiuh, had earlier campaigned for Obama.
He is aware of the U.S. and China’s climate pact; the government’s efforts to make vehicles efficient, but he says it’s not enough to meet the world’s goal of limiting warming to 2 degrees Celsius above preindustrial levels. Tonatiuh said:
“Obama has said that climate change is one of the most pressing issues of our time. Talk is cheap. I wanna see concrete action and concrete promises from our country — and commitments for action on climate change.”
