Climate change: Young people very worried - survey 09:16 - Sep 14 with 375 viewsNthQldITFC

Whilst obviously highly distressing for the young, perhaps this is the angle that might just be the one to shock us adults who have the power to do something into actually reacting on behalf of our children, rather than just p*ssing about and pretending it will all go away?

'The authors say the young are confused by governments' failure to act. They say environmental fears are "profoundly affecting huge numbers of young people".'

If past things like this are anything to go by, they'll just be sneered at for being 'overly entitled and spoilt' by the generation which were able to maintain a household on one blue collar wage, went to university free of charge and were able to afford to buy houses that weren't in Burnley.

The trouble with surveys like this is that they just reinforce a sense of helplessness, if being worried has no more effect than not being worried then why worry? The important thing is to do something and to make sure that the something is a useful response and not just a greenwash that actually makes things worse.

If it was possible to just not worry then worrying wouldn't be a thing. It's not something you can just switch off.
