    Before you jump all over me... I agree with fixing climate change. BUT anyone notice the irony about Australia's teen speaking about Antartica melting and polar bears not being a thing. Polar bears are from the ARCTIC ffs. As much as I want to slap the Australian prime minister upside his head... his students need a few more lessons.

    What the actual fuck are you going to do about the climate? We have like 0% chance at effecting it at a grand scale. It will be what it will be at this point.

    So what are they doing instead of demonstrating? Given up meat yet? Growing your own veggies?

    That's their idea of an exciting day out, burn a few cars while they're at it.

    I am all in favour of reducing emissions, but we need to reduce the unnecessary number of clothes we buy. We managed alright in the war years where it was make and mend, and nobody looked scruffy. Also, makeup is unnecessary. All the resources that go into making these things could be drastically reduced.

    There are many reasons for climate change however it asks that each and every one of us has to make sacrifices. I already have a very simple life. Who is game?

    Too late. In the 60s, scientists and environmentalists pleaded with the gov’ts and the public to reduced their material capitalism.

    Many many factors figure into climate change and a big help would be to PLANT MORE TREES EVERYWHERE to help combat deforestation of the Amazon Rainforest and our own deforestation due FOREIGN INSECTS, fires, logging. Control the industrial pollution spewing from huge countries like China, India, Russia, Brazil, Mexico and reverse idiot Trumps reversal of pollution protections here in the USA.

    I've heard cattle emit more co2 than man does. Has anyone else read that? How about we all plant mega amounts of trees. Trees gobble up co2. That sounds better than kids skipping school.
