Part of the problem is that this is not just about working hard, but about lifestyle changes.
I went to a presentation today and it was said that the biggest contribution to reducing carbon foot print an individual could make is not using public transit, fly less, or switch to different heating system, but stop eating meat.

When animals die and degrade naturally ... do they produce anything in essence? Perhaps a physiological Ayre! If captivated will this gas ignite a soul ... leading to assumption that #'s should be restricted and appreciated? Even Unreal #'s ... just for the abstract ... a thought that's out there ...

Waylaid Lyres ... to the side ... one or the other off the edge that forms the fulcrum ... expect folk with thumbs to take advantage ... (y) ... or perhaps alternately! That's levity ... with considerable leverage ...

Today starts the International Youth climate strike week. Students have asked the adults to join them. Today, In Halifax, a group of religious leaders joined the youth activists with some speeches, smudging, a quiet meditation.

Not sure why the photo shows up twice, I don’t seem to be able to delete one.

Greta Thunberg read world leaders the riot act this morning at the climate change summit in the UN General Assembly. Doubt she'll see the action she wants but, damn, what a powerful voice for her generation.

I see Trump has been going after her now. Gotta love how guys like him and Bernier prefer to attack the messenger rather than respond to the message. I suspect she'll be getting a Nobel Peace Prize long before he does, much to his chagrin.

Oh the irony ...
The Nobel Peace Prize was established by Alfred Nobel in his will of 1895. Nobel was a Swedish chemist (he invented dynamite) and wealthy arms manufacture. He died in 1896, and the first Peace Prize was awarded in 1901. It has been awarded annually ever since—except, reasonably enough, during periods plagued by worldwide war.

There are no word(s) for it thus NU words fly and some people demand silence from the human body as an err in production!

When adolescents are silent ... expect something to erupt ... all this without a certain type of knowledge about the dangers of passions when flying ...

Specifically designed for the birds?

Greta changed her Twitter handle to "Happy young girl with a bright future." - as a dig back at Trump. Cheeky! :)

There’s history and there’s what you have been told about history. But if you go back through the newspaper archives, you can see how it really was.

Until they start erasing that, to make sure you believe what you are told.

Trumps face is more of a scowl than a cha-Dowh-ah grin ... a bit on the orange side!

Like how scientists knew that fossil fuels were contributing to climate change since the 70s? Yeah, the oil lobby would probably like to totally erase that - they already do whatever they can to hide and obscure it.
