Thousands of students around the world have pledge they’ll engage in a world-wide Student Strike today.
They will skip classes to show their unhappiness with what they see as business and government inaction to fight climate change.
The cynic in me wonders if this isn’t just a way to enjoy a 3-day weekend and questions whether the students involved would be willing to give up something that would be more of a challenge, like avoiding social media interactions for 1 day.
I guess I’m of the opinion that changes in our climate from decade to decade are more the result of normal natural cycles and conditions than plastic straws or methane from cow poop. There’s little doubt that weather conditions are changing however slowly. If climate change means warmer summers, and warmer winters I say bring it on.
That’s the way I see it.
