I’m neither mocking her or insulting her. She is a child. I may have been fit to be a Marine NCO in Vietnam at 19 but I was not fit to make policy decisions for the nation at that age. The world is full of people who “do their research” with Google and consider themselves to be well informed, even experts. They are not. I hope that her passion inspires her to grow up to be an engineer that provides a viable mitigation. We already have CO2 scrubbers, they are not affordable yet. We’ve got all the talkers the world needs. That’s not an insult, but we need people walking a walk other than alarmism.

Retired and living my golden years in a world full of angry people.
