LETTERS: ‘I’m proud of climate change protest’

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

 

'I'M PROUD OF CLIMATE CHANGE PROTEST'

 

I am heartened, encouraged and just plain proud of the wonderful young people, worldwide, who spoke out against the horrors of climate change yesterday.

From Mackay to Mauritius, students made their voices heard, begging leaders to change destructive policies before it's too late.

Most of the protests were online (in Canada, online students went offline during the protest) and all were held with Covid guidelines in mind.

I'm a senior and I'm weary of what seems to be the catch-cry of my generation, that today's youth are indifferent, self-indulgent louts.

It was glorious to see those nay-sayers proved wrong yesterday.

Students, in school, studying the science, know that the burning of fossil fuels to meet the world's energy needs is what will, sooner rather than later, cause the death of that world, just as it, almost daily, causes the extinction of some inhabitants.

Elders, listen to the youngsters and take action now to decrease global warming. Please.

Brooke McReynolds,

Mackay.
