This apocalyptic is how kids are imagining our climate future

Climate change is happening - so, what will Earth look like in 50 years' time? DW asked today's children what they think. Let's just say ... they have a quite apocalyptic view indeed.

Climate change can be scary - even for children. DW reporter Irene Banos Ruiz asked children from 6 to 12 years old to paint what they expect the world in 50 years to be. The result: a bit frightening. Flick through the pics above to see for yourself.
