My name is Jared Birks and I’m 13 years old. I’m telling the story about our world and the carbon emissions threatening it. The reason I focused on climate change is because it includes everyone. This is the planet we live on, and instead of destroying it, then going in space and having robots clean it, everyone should try to change our course. My photos express how I want to keep the world’s nature thriving.

When I went on walks I noticed that there were less people driving. If I wanted to, I could walk in the middle of the street.
