Levi Draheim is an 11 year old kid who lives on a barrier island separating the coast of Florida from the Atlantic Ocean. He is also a plaintiff in a lawsuit against the U.S. government over climate change.

“I don’t even know if the Earth is going to be around when I’m older at the rate that we’re going,” Draheim said in a phone interview before his swim class in Indian Harbour Beach, just south of Cape Canaveral.

They joined the lawsuit against the U.S. government when their local Minister was contacted by Our Children’s Trust.

Of course, the fine legal points of the case are a little past Draheim: “You would have to ask my mom about legal stuff.”

But his tender age does not mean he is any less committed to the cause. “I think about climate change every day, basically,” he says.
