Is this targeted at 8-year olds?

Very likely. High school level.

What we can do.
The US Conservative position about what causes climate change and that we should wait before acting is really pretty stupid.

Facts:

there will be major effects in the US caused by climate change.

the human activity contributions to climate change are the only ones we can easily address in the foreseeable future.

many of the effects of climate change will cause serious disruptions and require large infrastructure investments.

What we need to be doing is making long range plans:

how do we move water from where it will be found to where it will be needed?

how do we relocate millions of Americans?

how can we provide for refugees that may show up?
