Xiuhtezcatl Tonatiuh is a 15-year-old environmental activist who is traveling to Eugene Oregon to sue the U.S. government over the issue of climate change. Xiuhtezcatl, along with 20 other young people, claim the government has ignored climate science for too long and their lawsuit demands that nation wide action take place in order to stop climate change.
