"Pediatricians, parents and our communities today have an unprecedented opportunity to protect our children and grandchildren. Great challenges bring great opportunities. We can each protect the next generation by working together to prevent dangerous climate change, but to have a real impact we must act now " 

- Samantha Ahdoot, MD, FAAP, lead author of theAAP policy statement
