How can the world 'solve' the Climate-Crisis™, if the old-folks are dragging their feet ?
Everything is a ' Project™ ' now, and they always, constantly, need to be moving forward.

There's no place for thought, questioning, debate, second opinions.
Just take our Medz™, and follow the good Shepherd™ out to pasture.
He protects us from the Big-Bad-Wolf™.
Sure he shaves our wool off, but it's a small price to pay for his Protection™ !
