Where are the ‘adults in the room’ when you need them eh.

As usual sitting in cozy comfort on their fat buttocks in oil guzzling polluting machines that get them nowhere and blame everything but themselves for the problem.

Bizziness (keeping busy doing busy business making money to avoid facing up to reality) as usual.

Youth Climate Strike 2019

We feel a lot of adults haven’t quite understood that we young people won’t hold off the climate crisis ourselves. Sorry if this is inconvenient for you. But this is not a single-generation job. It’s humanity’s job. We young people can contribute to a larger fight and that can make a huge difference.” Quote from an article by 46 youth group activists.

What are you going to do?

If you don’t think this is a problem or your news sources have told you it is a fake problem – then you need to inconvenience yourself and go dig up some facts of your own.

Do not take it second hand from anyone if you are not convinced – go and look yourself – find facts not opinions and not second hand.

Bad things are slowly going to start to happen – it has already begun. If we do not do anything in the next eight years or so (from now, 2019) it will become very very bad.

What is known for dead certain is that sea levels are rising and that the speed of that rise is increasing. Storms are becoming more powerful than before and severe droughts and torrential downpours are also becoming more frequent and severe. Glaciers that supply many people with their sources of fresh water are disappearing. These things are happening now. Today. Get yourself informed.
