How would children suggest to stop fossil fuel use?

Perhaps it is time to revisit a suggestion, I put forward months ago (i.e. a “reality” test).

How would children suggest to stop fossil fuel use?

Now that a number of children have decided to sue the federal government demanding them to “change” the “climate”, perhaps it is time to revisit a suggestion, I put forward months ago (i.e. a “reality” test).

How about running an editorial in your newspaper, asking for suggestions from school children as to how THEY would stop the use of fossil fuel in the next five years? After all, the alleged end of the human race will takes place in the next 10 years?

Perhaps this time around, people will give it more thought than calling me a “denier” because the Canadian taxpayer will be paying the bill if this lawsuit is successful.

How about it? Might be entertaining reading for people of the Cowichan Valley as to how the children’s suggestions would resemble “reality”?
