The Hill: Older Generations Need To Sacrifice For The Young On Climate Crisis (scam) Or Something

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

I’m not sure the writers of this screed really thought this through on the sacrifices part, but, they do enjoy linking COVID19 to the climate scam, and using it for their own nefarious purposes

COVID-19 and climate change both require one generation to sacrifice for another

COVID-19 and climate change have multiple similarities. They are both global phenomena that left unmanaged will inflict excruciating human and economic tolls. They also require a similar mix of approaches to solve: international cooperation, innovation, governmental investment, rapid deployment of solutions and acceptance of the science that underlies the risks. But they have one more similarity that attracts less attention: they both require one generation to change behavior in support of another.

For COVID-19, we ask schoolchildren to wear masks all day in socially-distant classrooms or endure endless hours of staring at screens on computers, phones or tablets for virtual classes without social stimulation with their friends. Even worse, some children may be stuck in unsafe, abusive home environments. The risk of death or hospitalization for children is relatively lower, so ultimately their sacrifice is to protect older generations including their teachers, parents and grandparents. The sacrifices made for COVID-19 have also been inequitable, with communities of color disproportionately at risk. The burden from COVID-19 on younger generations has been heavy.

Kids weren’t asked to sacrifice: they were told. They were forced into this period of online classes, not actually going into a classroom situation.

For climate change, society is asking older generations — today’s decision-makers — to build better infrastructure for tomorrow and to change our energy and land use patterns today to reduce and reverse emissions on behalf of schoolchildren and future generations that haven’t been born yet. But unlike the schoolchildren who are sacrificing to protect older generations, the older generations do not seem willing to reciprocate. Rather, today’s leaders put up a fight and resist the necessary changes. Doing so has delayed effective action by decades, inflicting more harm, which again often falls disproportionately on marginalized communities. Delay also increases the cost of responding to climate change. And since carbon dioxide remains in the atmosphere for hundreds to thousands of years, delaying action on climate change isn’t just about today’s children, it affects generations of humanity to follow.

Um, if the older generations “sacrifice”, they are going to be leaving the younger with massive amounts of debt, not too mention massive amounts of taxation, a much higher cost of living, and more government control of their lives, businesses, and choices. Is that what the kiddies want?

While the impacts of climate change are being felt today, the scope and scale of future damages largely depend on the amount of future greenhouse gases we produce. Bending the emissions curve to zero requires actions now to mitigate future damages. That time delay disconnects those who must act (today’s decision-makers) from those who suffer the most from inaction (younger people or children who haven’t been born yet).

If we put all the stuff the Cult of Climastrology that the kiddies want they’re going to be very upset with all the aforementioned stuff. They will have to limit their use of energy, including watching videos on their phones, taking videos of themselves doing dumb things, traveling to locations to take silly selfies. Maybe we should just give this stuff to them. Us older folks will mostly be dead or close to in 50 years, as the cult constantly uses, so, no skin off our nose. Except, we would prefer not to live with all the Fascism for the latter part of our lives, nor have all this screw with our money for the latter part of our lives. And, we’re attempting to protect the brainwashed little idiots from making a big mistake for their futures, because we do know better.

If the last 20 years of delay and denial are a useful indicator, that means Generation X and the Baby Boomers are not willing to look out for the future with the same care as they expect, and are receiving, from younger generations right now. The kids are doing their part for COVID-19. Let’s now do ours, and act on climate change.

Sometimes you have to let younger folks make mistakes as a learning experience. If they’re playing with a plugged in toaster while in the bathtub, you stop them, right? If you see them getting in their car to drive it will drunk, you stop them, right?
