Re: Greta Thunberg ... again

Freedom of speech is more important, when an individual wholeheartedly believes in what they are saying.

Re: Greta Thunberg ... again

Well I've been lurking on this thread and there's one thing that is shockingly obvious.

We NEED people like Greta and the young environmental activists because people of our age - and younger are living in cloud cuckoo land.

No we don't Todger, the're a bloody pest, and have been put up to it by someone older....parents, teachers the internet etc.
That's the trouble these days with the Media and Internet....There are too many people telling us what we should be doing without coming up with a solution...
I'm certainly not going to take advice about how I live my life from a child with no experience of life...
There seems to be a trend these days for advertisers to use children to sell ideas and other things because they are so innocent, but behind each innocent kid is some shyster with an agenda...

And no Muddy! it's not just their future, it's everybody's future regardless of how old you are. I'm sick to the back molars of people saying we have made a mess of the world.....We did what we thought was right at the time and given the information we had. Our parents did what they thought was best for us, and we have done the best for our children. If you want to live on this planet you must take from it or die...

Re: Greta Thunberg ... again

She should start by telling all school kids to walk to school and not be mamby pambied by their parents driving them there, in their fuel guzzling motors.

Todger, Please tell me what these ‘Environmental Warriors’ do in their normal life to save the planet other than shout about it?

Raise awareness amongst those who are indifferent or worse yet in denial.

That's a worthwhile thing to spend all day doing. The present level of ignorance, though understandable, is appalling.

Don't worry Arty, once these warriors have kids and mortgages they will take their place in the natural progression of life....And realise what the priorities of life really are....And it's not reading stuff on the internet and being angry all the time.....

Foxy, I wonder how many of these ‘warriors’ have wood burning stoves in their homes?
The smoke and fumes from these aren’t helping the cause.
