You would think they would be suing for faster GW from the NWT

Hilarious... A wee SJW living in one of the communities that relies EXCLUSIVELY on oil for power, heat and transportation.


Maybe her goals will be better served in suing the education system for generating such an ignorant person

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

Hey maybe I can sue them for interfering with my Arctic Ocean resort properties. Florida North isn't going to happen without globull warming. Lots of money riding on the promise of an ice free Arctic Ocean.

I do have issues with burning oil. Especially when it costs so effin much just to keep warm in the winter and etc and etc...


But I'm also a realist. Oil is part of things for now and likely for a long while, but oil is also finite despite people acting like it's not which is part of the stupid of blind oil supporters.


And there's nothing wrong with these kids wanting a different world than what you and others want and since Big Business and the Government won't listen to voices outside the courts... courts seem to be the only way to go.


If they lose, at least they can say they tried. Unlike the older generations.

They tried doing what exactly?


Pissing and moaning without any idea as to a solution is doing nothing

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.

How do you "fight yourself in court"? You and I are the Govt. The Govt isn't a seprate entity from the populous.

Somebody should check the fat kid's diet, he should be a CEO or a Politician before that body shape is 'normal'. The adult Indians would stand up but just a year ago they did stand up with JT when he came to do a short speech. The Government Hospital issues was brought up and it has not been mentioned once since then. Maybe if the children speak up, the old ones are too sick to travel. 'Indian time' is any time as what should happen never happens by then anyway. Our white assed Politicians and Health Care Workers are responsible for that shit.

Time to fire the psychopaths and all their kin.

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'.

You can see why I'm pushing to make them part of the separation issue. Alberta needs the abuse being done to them to have the move get international support. The north is not a desolate land, it is unexplored and under developed. ABexit could gain a lot of support by including them as people who have to get away from Ottawa and the few Provinces that control them.


Help!!

First you'd need to prove you were wronged. How do you do that when nothing was done to you?

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 .

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.

Rings hollow considering that there needs to be 100% back up power from some coal or nat gas

Absolutely, it was apart of the Sask. made carbon plan including carbon capture without the tax, that was rejected by Climate Barbie.

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?

You're right, I don't get it.


I don't get why giving a shit about the planet is so wrong. I don't get why wanting clean air, clean water and clean earth is so wrong.


I don't get why my seeing proof that the climate is changing - no matter how it is doing so - isn't something to be concerned about when it actually should be.


I don't get why kids who are worried about their future aren't allowed to voice that worry.


I don't get why a lot of things about this issue are such an effin' issue to some people. It really does confused the fuk out of me.


It seems to me though that you see the whole thing as a one issue solution: if you are against climate change, then stop living like you are now and go back to the caves (an exaggeration I know).



I don't think these kids see it that way.


I think they see there are possible solutions being worked on all over from older scientists to kids from first world countries to kids in third world countries, but the government just isn't investing and putting money where their mouth is. So now they're gonna try to force it through the court.


That's their right to do. If they win, good on them and eventually good on us. If they lose, then they lose and you and yours have won and can keep ignoring everything cause it just doesn't matter.


FYI, WE created these kids. We told kids that they can stand up for what they believe in, they can voice their opinions, they can challenge what they see is wrong. Now we're supposed to tell them "Except for things we don't like"?


Sorry, no take backs.

Well they as you are free to use less , to leave as small a footprint as possible . Eat canned vegetables all winter , Who needs oranges and bananas ? Wash dishes and clothes in the sink.,.
But the sad fact remains people like their modern conveniences and do not want to return to simpler times . We like the choices available to us in the supermarket, and I bet those children do as well .
Once a viable alternative to the gas powered automobile people will embrace that change , but at present electric vehicles donít provide that alternative .
