Teen action.

A group of 3 teenagers in North Carolina raised money to get an abandoned oil well plugged in Ohio, according to this incredibly uplifting story from Delger Erdenesanaa at The New York Times.

The fundraiser for plugging the well was featured in a newsletter called Gen Dread, which addresses climate anxiety in young people, and which I also learned about in reading this story. How poignant.
