Strike for survival

I take my hat off and applaud the young people engaging in the Global Climate Strike.

Some reports estimate the number of marchers worldwide at over four million. This makes it likely the largest climate protest in history. Good for them. 

The young people understand what is at stake here. The older fossils are a bit too ossified and co-opted to do anything to right our collective ship.

Of course the nasty right wing media believes that these young people have been totally manipulated and brainwashed, not smart enough to think for themselves.  I personally think that they sell them short. Time to lead or get out of the way.

Your old road is rapidly agin’

Please get out of the new one if you can’t lend your hand

For the times they are a-changin’

My new heroine is Greta Thunberg. She kicked ass at the UN today and is worth listening to when it comes to climate change.

Hope you're feeling better!
