We are the custodians of planet Earth and yet we have polluted our world in the name of making money instead of realizing that what we do here does effect our environment.
Greta Thunberg has been castigating world leaders about not doing anything about climate change with out making making any references to what they should do. I hate to say it, but I will (again and again if necessary) Greta- Please stop this in your face campaign of yours. What is needed is not more rhetoric, we need to hear what options are available. Not this nonsense of shaming. That is, shame on you for flying or traveling by car instead of walking or using public transportation.
The shame game gets us nowhere and it even will turn people off. So much so that whatever your message about climate change is, it is blotted out by the way you present it.
What is needed is for both the scientists and economists/business people to get together and come up with a long time plan to combat climate change. Not these stupid sound bites about not eating meat or flying and such. We the people need to hear concrete facts and real solutions instead of so called ‘Feel good’ sound bites.
I question the timeline that many doomsdayers are talking about and yes, I even do not believe what those who say that Earth is just going through a cycle and this is normal. Normal! Go tell that to the dinosaurs and other creatures that were lost when the last Ice Age came along. If we are to survive what is happening, the more information the better. Facts and solutions are needed, not shaming and misinformation.
From what I have read, it seems that a good place to start is to clean our oceans and the Amazon Rain Forest. By doing so Nature can do what it is supposed to absorb and storage carbon dioxide emissions.
