If Kids Don’t Lead, Adults Will Willingly Sacrifice Them
My friend and mentor, Bill McKibben has an Op Ed about this Friday’s Student Climate Strikes in today’s on-line edition of the LA Times that will be news to LAT readers but not to Creative Greenius devotees.

Bill does his usual masterly job in laying out the reasoning behind young people striking for climate action and why they deserve our attention and support.
