Good point , Harry.

We are looking at the splinter and avoiding the log......

But, it must make those involved feel SO good to be doing something.....LOL.

Spot on, Harry.

It must make some feel SO good to believe that their protests will achieve anything...

I sent this to several people. One friend sides with the students. However, in reflecting over the past 72 years, I came up with a few things. First, what are they going to give up to cut CO2? From 1947 to 1962, we had few electric appliances- one refrigerator/freezer, one AM radio, oscillating fans in the bedrooms, one B&W TV. WE finally got two air conditioners when we moved to Queens, NY. One was a small window unit and the other went into the sleeve in the living room. The setting of the two-family units only allowed breeze breeze from one direction. How much electricity did we consume? We did have two cars as my parents worked two different places from 1956-1962. My father did carpool with three other people who worked at the same place. Why don't we go back to the 1940s...the good ol' days that no one wants?
