Bought into the fanaticism is what they did wrong... Mind you, they have no issues with burning oil for heat, transportation, total reliance on food production, their economy, etc etc.
Ironic that they are so supportive of their own demise
They tried doing what exactly?
Pissing and moaning without any idea as to a solution is doing nothing
How do you "fight yourself in court"? You and I are the Govt. The Govt isn't a seprate entity from the populous.
Why one N.W.T. teen is suing the Canadian government over climate change inaction
Take the case to an International Court. That is why it has never been done, the Canadian Admin would be shown to be working for the WHO from the Northern EU to do medical experiments that match those done on the villages in the most remote places in Africa. If they did that shit at home they would all 'be removed from power permanently'.
I really would like to get it . You say we are doing nothing , but that is not true . I see wind turbines in Alberta , and B.C. . Alberta the oil capital of Canada has huge wind farms near Pincer Creek , is that nothing ? B. C. With our hydro power have wind farms at Tumbler Ridge , that is more than nothing .
There is also credible scientists stating that the earth is going into a cooling phase due to lack of sunspot activity, and severe food shortages will be occurring in the next couple of years .American midwestern farmers have crops rotting in the fields because of a late spring delaying seeding and early onset of winter affecting harvest . This is said to be the coming norm .
Who to believe , computer models or my own lying eyes .
There are ideas out there, but adults won't even listen to the other adults who have them/suggest them. And considering the dismissal the kids get for voicing their thoughts without any backup, you think they'll be listened to?
Taking the government to court is trying to do something, likely the last step they have. Even if it's force the government to take them seriously when they say "Do something!"
And yet people like you bitch and moan that they're doing even that. Tell them they're kids and they should STFU.
Thing is, people like you and I are the older generation who sat back and did nothing and they're pissed about it. They want to see things change, see it done now, not after we're dead. And I don't blame them.
So yeah, good on em, we'll see where it gets them.
Sask. is suppose to be 50% alternative powered in the next few years
How it works is if you don't like oil, don't use it. You don't force everyone else to follow your wacky religion. So these kids can go live in an igloo with a whale oil lamp for heat if they have the power of their convictions. Most likely they are just pawns of some know nothing white lawyer or teacher. Or both.
You simply don't get it.
These kids in NWT need to do some of their own BASIC research and understand that they can not survive AT THIS TIME (literally) without oil/gas.
So, in order to accommodate their demands, how's this for doing 'something'... Stop all deliveries of diesel, gasoline, propane, etc into their communities?
That's 'doing something' and conveniently, straight out of the playbook that they want to follow.
... Do you believe this to be a viable solution?
Do you believe this will be in the best interests of those kids?
These kids need to stop with the tantrums and come up with at least a suggestion.. Seeing how they can't, if they want their wishes imposed on them, great, cut-off all energy deliveries and force them to generate the solution because for the last number of decades, brilliant minds across the globe have struck-out so maybe they will have an answer.
Cause they're kids and obviously can't understand or know their own mind or have their own thoughts or anything. It HAS to be some adult behind it all, nefariously working to undermine the Freedom of everyone else!
... give me a break.
You're not that ignorant to not realize that just because they want to have a cleaner planet and something to be done about climate change, that doesn't mean they need to stop using oil and oil products.
Because you CAN'T... it's everywhere pretty much. The point these kids and others have is to make such things LESS, not continue to use it more.
Or is that too simple an idea for you to get?
