"I can't understand why there aren't rings of young people blocking bulldozers, and preventing them from constructing coal-fired power plants."
— Al Gore
(Note to Al: It's because they, and we, have allowed ourselves to be chained to our technologies. The greenies are too busy blogging to block bulldozers — and that's the last time I'll use alliteration like that, I promise.)
The thing to remember when Gore talks about the American civil rights movement in the video below is that global climate change has a deadline. And I mean a dead line.
This video is in honour of all the youth who are doing more than their share to wake up the world to the climate emergency.
