In her recent speech, Vice President Kamala Harris claimed that young people are experiencing “climate anxiety” that is causing them to reconsider major life decisions, such as starting a family and buying a home. According to Harris, this anxiety is driven by concerns about the environmental impact of climate change. However, this claim is simply untrue.
It’s no surprise that liberals like Harris would try to link every societal shift to climate change, but this argument just doesn’t hold up. The reality is that young people’s decisions about family planning and homeownership are influenced by factors such as the state of the economy and questions about childcare, not fears of a changing climate.
Kamala Harris' 'Climate Anxiety' Remarks Concerning Young Adults Has to Be a Joke

It’s clear that Harris is out of touch with the concerns of everyday Americans. While she may be preoccupied with polar ice caps and the talking points of the Green Warriors, young Americans are focused on more immediate and practical concerns. The desire to have children is strong among younger generations, they’re just choosing to wait until they’re in a more stable and secure position to start a family.
It’s concerning that the vice president would make such misleading statements. Who is briefing her? It’s unlikely that any competent staffer would advise her to spread this kind of misinformation. Harris has proven once again that she is a disaster, even on the smallest issues. Her inability to connect with the concerns of everyday Americans is evident and undermines her credibility as a leader.
