Today young people are marching to show they want action from authorities to act on measures to mitigate the accelerating effects of climate change. You can shorten that to Climate Strike, but the important thing here is that action is needed, and it’s the children who are demanding that it happen.
You have to see their point. They get to live with the consequences of decisions being made over their heads. In 1987 the Bruntland Report, or Our Common Future, defined one of the pillars of the sustainability as not diminishing any resources from future generations. I’m paraphrasing and simplifying but it’s not hard to understand.
Don’t use up everything! Stop consuming everything.
The concept is easy, the solutions are not. But we need to agree on actions and more importantly, act.
This is not a drill folks.
