The kids are not ok

A scientist writes, "Today I went to give a climate talk at my old high school..."  The students:

  • ... didn’t need to hear about emission trajectories: they needed to hear about trajectories of popular struggle, when and how people without power changed the world.

Later that day, her university students said about climate change:

  • Everyone knows, and no one is acting as though it matters. No one is taking it seriously. Every day, on Instagram, we see people we know taking flights just for the weekend. Everyone knows and no one cares. It’s just open hypocrisy.”
  • “We have seen that covid and Russia’s war on Ukraine can really cause changes overnight — but for climate, which is supposed to be a real crisis too, nothing is done.”

Conclusion:

"...inaction is now perceived as a deliberate, inevitable choice. The grown-ups ... are hurting and harming the youth . The hurt and despair are immense." 

So ... are we going to keep describing the problem?

Or ... start working on solutions?
