I saw this last week, right after it happened.

This time, I read the comments following the YouTube clip. Most were in denial of the Climate Crisis and opposed to the kids, whom many called "brainwashed children spouting liberal talking points".

My proposal is thoughtfully crafted, that so-called "Green New Deal" is a pie in the sky. "

I agree 100%, but most Americans have been brainwashed to think this is the dreaded "socialism" that made the USSR such an awful place to live. Ed
