Greta Thunberg at the UN

Filed under: Climate Change, Greta Thunberg, History in the making, Sustainability, Trump — derryvickers @ 7:32 pm

I find it difficult to know how to tackle Climate Change, I am too old for it to affect me, but the children now will suffer in many ways, ways not even to contemplate.
Climate Change and its effects has been with me for a very long time.  I remember a book years ago titled ‘BeforeNature Dies’
I note it’s still avaiable:

Who said Thunberg couldn’t speak;  what more could she have said and with what better emphasis?

The new Messiah but is she too late; Cheers by the UN but little commitment
And Trump walked by

The Good Friday Agreement resurrected – we can only hope on this Friday one week on

The British and Irish governments have reached an agreement to establish a new round of talks involving all the main political parties in Northern Ireland, starting on 7 May.

Theresa May and the taoiseach, Leo Varadkar, credited the public response to the killing of Lyra McKee with the announcement on Friday of a fresh attempt to restore power sharing in Northern Ireland.

But see the small print

The Last Supper Then and Now

Leonardo's Last Supper

Greta Thunberg talking with Caroline Lucas and Jeremy Corbyn at the UK Parliament on 23 April 2019.

Greta Thunberg should be encouraged to speak to the UK Parliament as a whole.

In any case, if Trump is allowed to speak to the UK Parliament in June (and I hope Bercow succeeds again in stopping him) then Greta should be invited to follow immediately afterwards.
