And to make it crystal clear again, Iím not comparing these movements to Gretaís school strikes and other protests they influenced.
But remember, all the protests I have mentioned started with a whimper before becoming a roar. Give Greta and her army of young people a little time. I hope they are not too late to undo the damage older generations have wrought.
