https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/feb/13/academics-back-uk-schools-climate-change-strikes When I saw the Swedish girl I thought this very likely may be the only hope for the planet. We now have three tipping points - that is things that may make climate disaster suddenly take a catastrophic leap. It is true that if one of those 'tips' we could all be dead in 5 years but hopefully will live a little longer. Scientists in charge of this have given up on any hope that our Governments will wake up in time. They have given up hope that we will be prepared to make the changes we need for the planet to survive and the danger is a lot nearer than even the last Report suggested. Most Climate scientists believe we have far less than till the end of the century. 2030 or for the more optimistic 2040 seems to be more how long scientists think we have but still we will not wake up and do something. Most of the marvellous ideas for stopping it have been proved not to work though there is some work which is suggesting we could manage by some means to destroy the carbon up in the sky but it apparently needs loads of money. The 0.01% do not want to give it as they have booked a place at the artic. Scientists are working on the possibility now of managing to put a few people there to hopefully be survivors of human beings, accepting most of us will die. Some of the 0.01% have apparently build massive underground living areas - whether they will be any use for living in for a few hundred thousand years is another question. The only hope I think there probably is, is if children face the grief of the reality that we have chosen not to do work we have known we needed to do at least since the early 20th Century if they were to have a life and we have chosen not to do it so they are unlikely to see old age or to be able to have children of their own believing there is a world where their children will be able to achieve anything but a terrible death. Children should never have to face such a trauma but I think possibly children facing that and telling us what they think is possibly the only chance for this world.
