As you probably know, today young people all around the world are stepping away from their studies and other responsibilities to make their elders hear the message that climate change needs to be addressed NOW.
Young people often say things like “you’re robbing us of our future”.
While this is true, what the adults in society need to realize is that when the shit hits the fan and the world is full of chaos and people are fighting to survive, the most vulnerable people are – the elderly.
You can bet that the young people in society are probably not going to stop to help the elderly when climate change throws the world a curveball unlike anything we’ve ever seen before.
What this means is that although our current lifestyle of never ending growth and disregard for our carbon emissions is robbing children of a future, the elderly are the ones who are also going to pay.
Just something to think about.
