Grateful that protests are allowed

but using the resources of a nation, which allows protests to deal with protests and use resources, like police, which in fact plays into the hands of criminals, who have less police to catch them because of protests, is not really effective.

Greta says, she tries to speak to activists in China, where such protests are not allowed, but China still builds coal-powered stations.

Protesting in London doesn’t stop the Chinese building coal-powered power stations but it uses a lot of resources of a climate friendly nation to just deal with protests, rather than finding solutions.

Actively helping those who are affected by climate change now, should be the first priority of the young climate activists, which is not being solved by crowding into London streets.

Current protests around the UK simply serve to criminalise the protestors.

Bunking off school – a bad idea

greta-mud

Picture from Greta Thunberg’s rally, picture from BBC. People demanded that the organisers pay for the damage to the greenery. 

I could mobilise, on any given day, hundreds of pupils who want to bunk off school for a cause. It’s not 15-year olds who drive or developed the cars, which ruin our environment but 15-year olds with good GCSE results  are our best chance of getting young people qualified to develop the new technology needed to change our environment for the better.

Missleading young people that standing in a field of mud, risking their safety and not going to school, is not doing us any favours. Yet, there are the Human Rights advocates who strongly encourage anybody to take up their right to demonstrate.

Demonstrating is about as easy as eating a donut. Eating too many donuts makes you fat and doing too many demos, makes you docile.

Why did Bristol allow this demonstration to happen?

Kids you are not improving our world by not learning.

It’s very disappointing that the BBC news only show people in favour of the demos and do not also show people who voice against. It’s not neutral the reporting.

Really bad the comments of a member of the teachers union, saying that children need to bunk off school and strike to get more confident. What a lot of nonsense. They need to get confidence through learning not by standing in a sea of mud.

Good luck Greta

I feel much more relaxed about Greta Thunberg’s trip to the US, since I’ve heard on a news story that actually one of her parents will be on the boat. It is a 60 x 12 foot boat without a toilet and amenities we are just used to.

It can’t do any harm to keep the discussion about climate change warm by constantly reporting about that trip of Greta.

What also interests me is how much Greta may miss her luxury home comforts during the journey for the sake of fighting climate change.

Lets hope all goes well.

I also hope that it will be easy to follow the media reports.
