What was accomplished? Seriously? It’s true that kids are not learning anything in the public schools. So letting the kids skip school to shriek and carry signs that the government needs to do something now to fix the environment. What’s wrong with the environment?
Our environment is the cleanest it has ever been. The world is greener. The largest polluters are China and India. So this rant about the climate is serving what purpose? Who is it helping? The short answer no one. This is nothing more that hysteria brought on by environmental activists whose goal is to increase a socialist agenda.
When Alexandria Occasionally-Coherent (AOC) made the claim that the world has only 12 years left before we destroy ourselves. Using what evidence? The fake news media picked up on AOC’s claim and flooded the news stream with this narrative. How is this science? I can make a claim that a diet of only chocolate cake provides you with all the daily nourishment your body needs. And then you get diabetes.
As I have asked before many times, which is more preferable? A warming world or a freezing world. In a freezing world, seasonally growing cycles would be smaller. There would be mass starvation. You would have to use more fossil fuels to heat homes and businesses. Solar and wind would be useless in a freezing environment.
In a warming environment, growing seasons would last longer. More food would be available. More time to enjoy the outdoors. As more plants and trees thrive, the more cleaner the air will be. I still believe solar and wind are larger polluters than fossil fuels. To create solar farms you must clear cut trees. The same with windmills. Plus the damage to birds and wildlife is profound. The amount of environmental damage green technology causes is alarming. People don’t realize how much fossil fuel energy needs to go into constructing solar and wind farms.
In Hawai’i, solar and wind farms eat up valuable farmland that could be used to reduce our dependence on shipping in food from the mainland. The cost of produce in Hawai’i is expensive because it has to be shipped in. Most environmentalist in Hawai’i are gardeners, they are not farmers. They don’t understand what farming and ranching is about. Environmentalists believe food comes from it’s natural habitat, a supermarket.
Now convince a bunch of ignorant kids that the planet is warming and the seas are rising because the polar ice caps are melting demonstrates a huge ignorance to science. It’s really sad because instead of learning the life skills needed to be successful in life, they are being fed a diet of science fiction. These kids will not listen to actual climate scientists, but they’ll listen to an autistic child testifying before a brain dead Congress and United Nations that the planet is burning. It’s madness.
