Quick Climate Links: Anjali Sharma is both angry and devastated feeling she has lost her right to a safe future

Anjali Sharma (pictured) was among a group of young people who had felt success, but then have it turn to tragedy when a court case considered their future safety from climate change fell from being in their favour to be reversed, allowing Australia's Environment Minister, Sussan Ley, to again progress fossil fuel projects without consideration of Australia's young people.

An outraged, and obviously unhappy Anjali penned a story in The Melbourne Age: "Losing this court case feels like we’ve lost our chance for a safe future".

And from RoCo films there is "The Revolution Generation".
