Millenials are highly concerned about what Donald Trump’s victory means for the climate change that their consumerist behavior perpetuates, it has been revealed.

The President elect has been quoted as describing climate change as a ‘Chinese hoax’.

“It’s just a prank, folks. Not unlike my initial decision to run for President.”

The issue of global warming has seriously worried 18- to 34-year-olds, a demographic who recycle less, conserve less home electricity, and drink more bottled water than their previous generation.

When asked if he was boycotting products containing palm oil, graphic designer and part-time Uber driver Tom Williams replied, “Do you know how long that would take? In that time I could have signed at least seven e-petitions. God, it’s like I’m the only one in the world who understands green energy!”

Going vegetarian is a move that the vast majority of eco-scientists agree will at least halve an individual’s carbon footprint.

In response, millennial Sophie Atkinson sniffed, “Uh, it’s a little more nuanced than that. I might eat meat ten times a week but in that same week I’ll retweet @Greenpeace posts like at least 30 times. So, math.”

Continuing her thoughts in Singapore airport, whilst on a stopover from Los Angeles to Jakarta, Atkinson continued, “It’s just awful. This ignorant pig is going to singlehandedly destroy the nature that I fly around the world to snap for Instagram.”
