If it's your soapbox then perhaps you might look around (down)

You typed this on an "electronic device"---computer, cell phone, etc

the "little turds" are also YOUR grandkids. nieces & nephews---- which I'll bet you overindulge.

If your rant is about the progression of technology-- then where would you be w/o the internet, computers, electricity & a million other things your parents & grandparents didn't have or even dream of and you make use of every day?

if your purpose was to just relay someone else's rant-----then why bother?

Smitty, it is highly unlikely that young school kids really understand why their parents encouraged them to strike. I doubt that more than perhaps a handful understand what climate change is all about. Personally I'm a great believer in CLIMATE CHANGE but not in MAN-MADE CLIMATE CHANGE. The long running thread on this subject was closed some time ago.

Unfortunately Bill compared to previous generations a considerable percentage of today's kids could rightfully called little turds, at least in Australia, it would appear that kids in America are much different.

interesting but it is not just kids, I use the computer, cnc and laser at work because it is my job. At home I use hand tools because I like to. I see people of all ages walking around in there own little cell phone world, but there are still people that will put them away and talk to others and I am one of them. I hate to text unless I can't get someone on the phone. I like to hear the persons voice or see their face. I would love to walk to work but it is just a bit to far.
It is always the same, one generation thinks the next generation has it to easy, and it has gotten easier with each generation but where did it start?
Have a wonderful day all.

Regardless of the science? You do realize that we're supposed to be going into another ice age at this point don't you? While I think it both smart and healthy to question I have to really question ignoring the science based conclusions. But then again, right or wrong are you willing to risk that for your grandkids or theirs? Is that the same as playing Russian roulette with the future? I mean what's the harm in making the world more efficient and cleaner? Seems we're excellent in creating problems for the next generation to deal with and many times it's based on greed. We tend to see things based on on lifetime instead of the future. Maybe we need to look at China and North Korea for what a lack of concern can do. But then again the Chinese have and seem to be doing something about it or at least working in that direction. I don't have the answer but I'm not willing to bet the house on global warming being "fake news" according to the industrialist.

I suggest we err on the side of caution. Nuff said on my part.

This strike is a testimony to the fact that our schools are failing us. The current generation uses technology and has strong political opinions, but fails to have learned about logic, technology and history. It's so easy for them to protest, because a great majority of the young people don't have a solid basis for their beliefs. Just the opinion of a older conservative, who received a solid education in the 1950's.

Very true Harry. Like the latest climate change conference where a million gallons of jet fuel was used. N

Harry I will sign on to that rant. And the fact that the schools are allowing the students to strike should be a crime in itself. These kids are being indoctrinated early to protest everything, and flaunt the rules. If it were my kid I would forbid him to strike and make him attend even if he was the only kid in class. Then I would be looking for a private school for him. And the schools should give every striking student an "F" for the day and a "Tardy" on their report card.
