Julia Conley, staff writer

Thursday's student demonstration in Brussels confirmed that the global climate strike movement is showing no signs of slowing down, with an estimated 35,000 young people marching through the European Union capital to demand that world leaders take bold action to stem the climate crisis.

Once again, young people demand changes to mitigate global warming and climate change, while old corrupt people in charge do nothing.

The global warming event horizon for young people is real. They will suffer terribly if nothing substantial is changed. Old, corrupt people in power couldn’t give a sh1t. They’ll be long gone.

I’ve reached the older age group and believe that all elected officials need to be 35 years old or younger. Preferably women (I’m a guy). Preferably, where possible, indigenous or minority women.

Only then will we stand a good chance of getting meaningful change in place.

No leadership is going to presume to FIX things unless they know where it will lead short term. Higher energy costs, less available energy for homes and vehicles, changes in the tax code, etc etc.

Young people have always marched to try and change the existing paradigm.
This should always be encouraged and we all must be behind them.
We are going through the overhaul of humanity which is long overdue.
