At four thirty in the afternoon – pitch dark and raining – Sue Natali is waiting for her son, Clancy, to get home from school. But she’s not meeting a bus. Each day, Clancy takes a ferry from Woods Hole to Vineyard Haven, and back, to attend Martha's Vineyard Public Charter School.
A forty-five minute ferry ride may be an unusual commute for a seventeen-year old high school junior, but it’s nothing compared to the trip Clancy makes this week, to the climate talks in Paris. It’s an opportunity he earned in an essay contest his school held last summer.
