Such a great point. Just like gay rights. That generation doesn't have a doubt or understand those who do. Then again, its Brooklyn which is rich, highly educated and right on the ocean.
Part of the problem is they share two senators with 20 million other people, whereas Wyoming has two senators, both climate change deniers, for half a million people.
Gay rights, that's a better analogy Sal for how millennials are changing. LGBT, racism, sexism - not just my own - but kids in general,...these are NOT issues for them!
You think they will question making changes in their lives to lessen damage on the planet they live on?
Will they save the planet? I hope so but indicators make that a tough task. But they - as a generation - sure as hell won't adopt a 'forgetaboutit' attitude.
Brooklyn true, but they grew up in Maine so I co-parented a lot of kids from a wider spectrum and they were similar in the above thinking.
We elected a climate denier gov., TWICE in Maine, thanks to a split vote.
Maines, Gov. Lepage's claim to fame is, "I was Trump before Trump". He spoke the truth, we've since found out.
He's vetoed everything but managed to get fireworks legalized and the speed limit raised to 70 on I95, in 8 years.
Thank god for term limits, his is up in a few weeks.
