#WATWB – The Greta Thunberg Helpline!

The Greta Thurnberg Helpline!

Okay, I couldn’t help myself with this one.  In honor of the U.N. Climate Summit — may we all come to our senses and do something about the planet before the planet does it for us — and the 16-year old who is raising awareness in ways that our politicians never could with more bravery, insight, and clear-headedness than most of us adults, I give you this for your viewing pleasure.

If we’re not laughing, we’re crying, and frankly, there’s really no time for tears, just action!

Welcome to this month’s #WATWB, a monthly good news trip around the world.  May we all be energized and rejuvenated by the good news.

    OMG! That’s hilarious. I was scratching my head at all the people ripping into Greta for pointing out how the world was going to crap and no one was doing anything about it. Seriously, what is wrong with people?

    Excellent post, Pam. Thanks for sharing the twitter, I don’t use my account much, so I’d have missed this.

    I don’t know which is worse. Do the politicians who deny climate change really believe that or are they just saying what the money men who finance them want them to say. One assumes that you have to have at least half a brain to be elected to Congress. And you only need half a brain to understand what is happening to the environment. Sorry, this doesn’t really qualify as good news.

  14. I did some reading about climate change. Yikes! Human interference started back when we began farming. OK, that does it. No more farming… no more cows… I have a headache.

      Well, the amount of resources it takes to raise a cow is much greater than what it takes to “raise” a salad 😂 Jacqui, but I think the bigger and easier target is fossil fuels vs. renewables. We could make a big dent in it just by converting to renewables.
