The global climate strike is just the beginning..

The global climate strike wasn’t intended to “amaze” so-called leaders about “the kids” and allow them to make generic statements about climate change to conceal their pro-fossil fuel industry policies and actions.

The Canadian environment minister whose government bought an 890,000-barrel-per-day tar sands pipeline patronizingly tweeted, “The kids demanding climate action in New York, across Canada, and around the world have it right — It is about their future.”

The prime minister retweeted a local Liberal MP’s tweet, “Climate change affects us all. But nobody will be affected more than our youth. Proud of our community’s youth for speaking up about what matters to them.”

The climate strike wasn’t intended to make MPs proud about “our youth” (sigh); it was meant to spur action at the United Nations Climate Action Summit this week.

Unfortunately, the Liberal government isn’t about to take a whole new Green New Deal agenda to the UN this week.
