Join young climate strikers on the streets and demand an end to the age of fossil fuels.
Yes, I plan on being on the street to support the youth activists.
anything but silly
To each their own. I just don't think it will yield anything.
@Darth. Just because you think so we should back down. Seriously?????
Hope they dont block the roads. I can see them getting coal rolled by a bunch of diesel trucks if they start causing gridlock.
@Tesla2018. I am sure they are in morbid fear.
@SCC no, I support and defend free speech. Even free speech I don’t agree with. I just think it’s a waste of time and won’t yield anything.
I'll be in the streets. Celebrating hope for a better world. Renewables have already won. They've built the best cars ever made.
#1 rule . . . don't feed the trolls.
Positivity wins against bullies and clowns and blockheads.
Look at the energy and momentum behind massive worldwide changes to how we conduct extraction, foreign policy and equality.
Ignore the ignorant.
Minds are hard to change. Some marches do get the word out and those who participate meet like minded people. As long as there is not boneheads blocking traffic or causing property damage that ruins the message it is harmless time spent. The best way is to lead by example and teach open minds.
Don’t really want to engage, but DA the power of the people have been around for centuries.
People protested civil rights, people protested voting rights, people protested against wars-
While you may think it’s a ‘waste of time’ and ‘ won’t yield anything’ it is the PEOPLE make this country.
So stay home on your couch & bitch about what you’re gonna bitch about but don’t think that the people of this country speaking up is a waste of time. It is our right.
And yeah, I signed up.
Still Grinning ;-)
When these folks were supporting the tea people they were singing a completely different tune.
Hypocrisy. Just one of the cookies in the enormous goodie bag you get with the conservatives.
In terms of speaking out Greta Thunberg's scathing speech yesterday at the UN Climate Session was incredible and inspirational. She spoke truth to the World Leaders only slow walking action on Climate Emergency/CRISIS. She understands the science and correctly interprets her future without serious action.
""I shouldn't be up here. I should be back at school on the other side of the ocean," the 16-year-old from Sweden told the United Nations Climate Action Summit. "Yet you all come to us young people for hope. How dare you! You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words."
Thunberg slammed the members of the U.N. for caring more about money and "fairytales of eternal economic growth" than collapsing ecosystems, mass extinctions and people suffering due to climate change.
"You say you hear us and that you understand the urgency, but no matter how sad and angry I am I do not want to believe that because if you really understood the situation and still kept on failing to act, then you would be evil, and that I refuse to believe," Thunberg said.
She also said that the "popular idea" of cutting emissions by 50 percent in 10 years only yields a 50 percent chance of keeping the earth's warming trend below the 1.5 degree Celsius threshold, which could set off "catastrophic chain reactions beyond human control" if breached.
"A 50 percent risk is simply not acceptable to us — we who have to live with the consequences," she said.
Thunberg said the earth’s remaining CO2 budget was rapidly dwindling — citing a report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that said the planet has experienced a more than 70 gigaton deficit in the earth’s remaining CO2 budget since January 2018.
But Thunberg said leaders from the United Nations wouldn’t suggest more radical plans to reduce emissions because they are “still not mature enough to tell it like it is.”
“You are failing us but young people are starting to understand your betrayal,” Thunberg said. “The eyes of all future generations are upon you and if you choose to fail us, I say we will never forgive you.”
Thanks for posting @Tesla-David
Don't need to add anything to her comments.

Very interesting forum and also trending. A lot of blogs I see these days don't really provide anything that I'm interested in, but I'm most definitely interested in this one. You can check your clicking speed test easily at https://anchor.fm/cpstest
