OK....................... "Renewable energy is the ONLY way to go and the older generation
owes it to their kids to divert all government assistance in that direction."

This is what happens when you get your news from Stephen Colbert and the daily show.

These manipulated and brainwashed youth are the Brownshirts of the new millennium. We are all going to get gassed by these morons if we don’t fight their stupidity.

But heck even renewable energy has their problems, in the states we do the windmill thing wrong. Every windmill farm I have seen was packing them in as tightly as we can on the land and that kills birds by the bucket loads.
In germany they have them scattered around the farm fields, some birds still die but the majority are able to ride the currents around the mills.

So some go what about solar farms... again same problem we pack them in over lots of acreage and they also kill birds by the bucket load.

I would say every house should have solar panels on it but we have states bowing to the power companies and outlawing having your home hooked up to solar panels for "worker safety", so I honestly dont know which way to go with that one.

Geo-thermal seems like a good option if your area supports such a thing, and coastal cities should be looking at using waves to gain electric power but I am not certain how viable that is.

Do they wear matching brown uniforms and lederhosen and sing in German too?

"Young Americans Want to Save You From Climate Change"


Then they'll want a ride to the mall to get a new iPhone, new clothes, new gaming systems, with our money.



Young people. So idealistic, so naïve, so innocent, so stupid.

At peak consumption, your home can use 14 Kilowatts/hour (cooker + washing machine dryer). Electric bar heater = 2 or 3 kilowatts. Hairdryer = 1 kilowatt. Just add up all the watts used by every light bulb, electronic device and electrical appliance. But you usually only use a washing machine or cooker for an hour, then the consumption is under 5 kilowatts. That easily covered by solar panels. It's the same power consumption of some satellites. Add some storage batteries and your home gets free energy.

I always like reading this one.

Being Green
Checking out at the store, the young cashier suggested to the much older woman, that she should bring her own grocery bags because plastic bags weren't good for the environment.
The woman apologized and explained, "We didn't have this 'green thing' back in my earlier days."
The young clerk responded, "That's our problem today. Your generation did not care enough to save our environment for future
generations."She was right -- our generation didn't have the 'green thing' in our day.Back then, we returned milk bottles, soda bottles and beer bottles to the store. The store sent them back to the plant to be washed and sterilized and refilled, so it could use the same bottles over and over.
So they really were recycled.But we didn't have the "green thing" back in our day.Grocery stores bagged our groceries in brown paper bags, that we reused for numerous things, most memorable besides household garbage bags, was the use of brown paper bags as book covers for our schoolbooks. This was to ensure that public property, (the books provided for our use by the school) was not defaced by our scribblings. Then we were able to personalize our books on the brown paper bags.But too bad we didn't do the "green thing" back then.We walked up stairs, because we didn't have an escalator in every store and office building. We walked to the grocery store and didn't climb into a 300-horsepower machine every time we had to go two blocks.But she was right. We didn't have the "green thing" in our day.

Back then, we washed the baby's diapers because we didn't have the throwaway kind. We dried clothes on a line, not in an energy-gobbling machine burning up 220 volts -- wind and solar power really did dry our clothes back in our early days. Kids got hand-me-down clothes from their brothers or sisters, not always brand-new clothing.

But that young lady is right; we didn't have the "green thing" back in our day.

Back then, we had one TV, or radio, in the house -- not a TV in every room. And the TV had a small screen the size of a handkerchief (remember them?), not a screen the size of the state of Montana.

In the kitchen, we blended and stirred by hand because we didn't have electric machines to do everything for us. When we packaged a fragile item to send in the mail, we used wadded up old newspapers to cushion it, not Styrofoam or plastic bubble wrap. Back then, we didn't fire up an engine and burn gasoline just to cut the lawn. We used a push mower that ran on human power. We exercised by working so we didn't need to go to a health club to run on treadmills that operate on electricity.But she's right; we didn't have the "green thing" back then.We drank from a fountain when we were thirsty instead of using a cup or a plastic bottle every time we had a drink of water. We refilled writing pens with ink instead of buying a new pen, and we replaced the razor blades in a razor instead of throwing away the whole razor just because the blade got dull.But we didn't have the "green thing" back then.Back then, people took the streetcar or a bus and kids rode their bikes to school or walked instead of turning their moms into a 24-hour taxi service in the family's $45,000 SUV or van, which cost what a whole house did before the "green thing." We had one electrical outlet in a room, not an entire bank of sockets to power a dozen appliances. And we didn't need a computerized gadget to receive a signal beamed from satellites 23,000 miles out in space in order to find the nearest burger joint.But isn't it sad the current generation laments how wasteful we old folks were just because we didn't have the "green thing" back then?

Please forward this on to another selfish old person who needs a lesson in conservation from a smart young person...

This is how we lived pretty much.

I'm so proud of them. Finally a generation has come along who can voice their opinions in a constructive way, exercise their freedoms in a way that might actually get results, and take an educated position on taking care of our planet.

Looks like some of you are the antithesis to those ideals... taking cheap shots and stupid name-calling at those who are trying to effect needed change. The country hasn't seen kids this vocal since the 1960's!

It's wonderful to see. Of course the old folks are going grumble, so grumble away, it won't stop them!

Not surprised. Germans were proud of the Hitler youth too...they didn't realise till later.

Here's a quote from a Hitler youth girl, now an old lady...

At an age when you don't yet have much of a personality it's wonderful to be part of such a huge movement of people all thinking feeling and doing the same thing.


Precisely the innocence that evil people feast on when they use kids to push a political ideology.
History helps us recognise the signs, but some will always go along with evil if it matches their point of view.

This. If they are serious about climate change we would be having less children to drive down the amount of energy required to live on this rock.

I wonder if you will feel the same way when that little girl in your picture grows up and joins them. Which she will because she won't want to have the same lack of ideals that some of you share. Her values will be your nemesis, grandpa.

We are having less children Einstein. It's become problematic for some western civilizations.

Comparing them to Hitler's youth? I expected LOW, but somehow, not quite that stupid.

Developing children wanting to be part of some exciting big gathering and 'movement' used by politicians to push political agendas. Seems similar to me. This is what indoctrination looks like.

I love that one!





One of my children started lecturing me once.


I listened. And then I asked him if we should protest lithium batteries. I spoke and even showed him the waste, destruction and poisons caused by lithium mining.

I asked if he was going to give up his phone and such because if he wasn't, then wouldn't it be just a tiny bit hypocritical?

No, this is what social change looks like. It's obviously going to be a thankless job for a while, but somebody's got to do it.
I'll be cheering them on, for their guts and determination. We've had our turn, now it's theirs. I am hoping they can do a better job than we have done.

The rest of us can either help them, or eat their dust.

I know the mods will probably dock me another 2000 points for saying anything bad about liberals,but hard not to say anything,why didn't this happen under Obama,just another orchestrated attempt to undermine authority,don't agree with milleniums,even in social media like this you'll be a racist,bully etc


We we did with the 99%ers. A life of participation trophies and being called a winner in everything followed by the fake nurturing bubble of college that just sees them as profit while telling them "give us 60k and your generic_01 crap degree will get you 100k per year on the market" kind of skewed their perceptions of the cruel hard world.


These young need to be careful for what they wish for, they just might get it. First they need to prove that humans are the main cause for climate change as we see it and that it is not just what the planet does. Next they better be ready to live the life that they want to sow. Say goodbye to many freedoms, say go goodbye to privacy and much of the living standards they enjoy today that would only become a thing for the rich. Better keep that carbon foot print small or the carbon police will come after you while heroes like Al Gore still has 10 houses and a fleet of planes/cars...

Enjoy a life or Ramon Soup and 10 people living in a small apartment as none will be able to afford the carbon tax or the increased prices of what we see today as normal necessities. Goodbye car, goodbye phone, computer etc...we can always go back to recycle paper and No.2 pencils.

What people do not realize is technology has a way of fixing itself with not much help. The horse was a huge eco disaster until the car came along, but at first people didn't run out to buy a car that they would pay a life time on it while it could maybe do 1/2 the work of a horse. Time though made the difference, and today it will be the same. When things cost less and give more performance we will naturally shift just like with the horse.

Who in their right mind would buy a gas car over one that was electric when the electric car gets 400 miles a charge, take 15 mins to recharge, does 0-60 in 2.9 seconds etc and cost the same, as example...

What does that even mean? Man made global warming and pollution are a real thing, that's backed by thousands of scientific research papers and scientific organizations like NASA and most colleges, both private and public.

You're calling our youth Nazis for listening to Scientists and wanting to do something about it? LOL
