“Apathy threatens humanity, ex-Clinton aide [Thomas Homer-Dixon] says”

With the need for the public to take swift action, Homer-Dixon admits he’s alarmed by the amount of public apathy especially amongst the youth. “I don’t understand why young people aren’t out there in the thousands on the streets saying, ‘This is our future.’

“I think part of the problem is that a lot of the public doesn’t understand how serious this is,” he continued. “And the real problem? There’s a certain lack of mobilization, there’s a lot of apathy, especially among young people. They’re not getting engaged, they’re not organized into a politically mobilized force.”
