This is just this generations cause célèbre (it "keeps them off the streets") in the same way in the past as Ban the Bomb and Y2K Millennium disasters etc. all worthy causes no doubt but to be given the correct amount of respect and weariness. If anything there is so many "experts" who are involved in the latest threat to the world that we must ask what's the next great catastrophe thats being lined but by the media... Oh did any of them come true? Just like the on-set of the Ice Age in the 1970's the answer is No!
Lets just concentrate on a truly worthy cause and look to a plastics free future.
I think the people of Hiroshima and Nagasaki might disagree with you there....... and the Millennium definitely happened - I was there
Actually, no disasters happened on the latter due to the actions taken to prevent them (previously discussed), whereas these misguided souls are complaining that NO action has been taken.
I see one of their ideas is to take climate change out of the hands of Government and to set up some kind of "people's assembly" ...... yet another bright idea bolted on to representative democracy, just like referendums...... because we all know how successful that was!
However, climate change is certainly happening - only an idiot would claim otherwise. Over to you, Boro Boy..........
