Letter to the editor: Teens must be part of climate change solution

Students protesting about climate change:

They are right to be concerned about waste, pollution and the idea of unlimited growth in a finite world. There was a remark that his situation was “forced on them.” Of course, they might have been kids that had to be driven to school rather than ride the school bus, and later on they had their own car to get to high school.

Modern people, young and old, think they need to have the latest toys, clothing, entertainment and especially the newest technology: phones, computers, etc. Students could set a great example if they began riding the school buses and we end up with empty parking lots at school.

Put forth a real effort and show that you are serious about making a difference.
