Kelsey and her Americans Who Tell The Truth portrait by Robert Shetterly, which was unveiled on June 4, 2018 at the 4th annual Samantha Smith Challenge at Thomas College in Walterville, Maine.“Government actions knowingly and willingly created the climate crisis. From this crisis young and future generations face increasing dangers. As courageous, creative change-makers we have the opportunity and moral authority to change the social, political and economic structures that cause injustice and climate chaos. Youth are standing up for our fundamental right to inherit a stable and survivable planet. We have everything to gain from taking action and everything to lose from not.”

Grumpy Gramps adaptation of a Joseph Mather (1790) revolutionary poem celebrating Thomas Paine.
Alarmed, harmed but not to blame, Let Youth explain.
To every soul,
Help the World to see,
What dupes and slaves to Fossil Fuels We be, And point out pathways to Climate Recovery, Across oceans and skies from pole to pole.
President of ' Make America Great' Tweets in fear and hate.
All will understand:
Politicians blush for shame,
Many corporations do the same, Infamous is your name.
Citizens rise, take a stand.
Pull proud oppressors down, Knock off each tyrants crown, Corruption, sleaze, false word; Save us from hypocrisy,
Down oligarchy and plutocracy,
Set up democracy.
Let the insight of innocence be heard.
Why should despotic pride Usurp on every side?
Let us be free:
Grant this generation success, And all futures bless,
Plant through the universe Liberty's Justice Tree.
Facts are seditious things
When they touch courts and kings,
Lobbyists and lawyers paid,
Fricking gas fracked, coal shipped, oil pipelines built, Innocence charged with guilt,
Blood most unjustly spilt,
History stands amazed.
Vain emperor may bully and bulldoze.
Earth Guardians rally, ha! He has no clothes! Our Children's Trust is about love.
With common sense, legal and scientific proof, Climate Kids speak the truth,
Demanding solutions for Global Youth. Support in Court Youthvgov.
