They can learn that action, in addition to sitting in bored rooms reading charts and listening to “experts” shooting down workable plans in place of plans which will bring in profits, perhaps even profits, or PROFITS regardless of whether the plan worked or not, because the plan is not for success, it is for profit.
*What Greta and a few dozen million realize is that money is just inedible green paper, and it is up to We the People of the World to insist that priorities be moved, from inedible green paper to breathable air, healthy food, healthy land to grow good food on, and a clean ocean which is a prime source of food and, Oxygen! Those little phytoplankton critters that excrete Oxygen are being driven to extinction by the garbage being thrown into their pool.
*Cleaning up the rivers, creeks and oceans is going to be a monumental task; sort of like restoring circulation to a person who is close to heart failure. It can be done, but it is a huge job. I think millions of people are becoming aware of all of this, thanks to Greta and a few others who will look straight into the eyes, or into the lens, and tell it like it is. No histrionics, just straight information and suggestions as to what to do to turn us around before we are gone.
God bless them all! May they succeed and We the People of the World take the necessary steps to achieve the goal and let the Chairman of the Bored sit alone in his fancy office.
