|Seems like another French revolution is in the works? Practically everyone is marching in Paris these days.|
We'll see what happens when one of these protests from these kids comes up against a yellow vest march!
Thing could get ugly real fast.

The test engineer in me is wondering why we (Americans) aren't doing everything in our power to assist Europe in transitioning to a "Green New Deal"-type of continent so we can observe whether or not they tax the shit out of themselves into a prosperous utopia.
We could base our decisions on that outcome.
Oh wait! All the accords and deals and treaties only apply to the US, not to anyone else.

Ceist - I couldn't agree with you more. But when money and religion are involved, and there are people who value them above all else, then the lies begin. - trafn
You are completely misunderstanding their use of the word "accumulation"! - Climate Scientist.
The Stefan-Boltzman equation doesn't come up with the correct temperature if greenhouse gases are not considered - Hank

IB STILL hasn't explained what Planck's Law means. Just more hand waving that it applies to everything and more asserting that the greenhouse effect 'violates' it.- Ceist

You have to expect things like this when these children have been under a complete and total propaganda program almost from birth. If you drill something into anyone's head enough times it requires a very strong will to resist simply going with the flow.
Children in particular are vulnerable to this because they want to feel part of a group and why not a group that wants to "save the planet" no matter that the planet doesn't require any saving and that they don't have any prospective at just how little man can do to the environment of this planet.
A country road up a very steep hill that I ride my bicycle looked like a trash heap. So I drove up there and parked at the top and walked down collecting all of the garbage along the way. I left the bags at the bottom and walked back up the several miles to the top and drove down, picked the bags up, and took them to the dump. One week later you couldn't tell I had done a thing. There were even whiskey bottles thrown out in exactly the same spots.
Yesterday riding my bike with a group down the Bay Trail we spotted this old guy with a shopping cart full of plastic residue. We stopped and asked him how often he does this - every day he cleans a two mile stretch of shore line voluntarily. Every day he recovers exactly the same amount. It is ALL soda cups and straws and plastic burger wrappers and the plastic bags they give you to carry all this stuff.
These are all from the kids in the same age group as those protesting - they are protesting their very own actions and do not care if they are the problem. But, like man, protesting is like so cool.
