Today is the special climate change day when not just children go on strike to bring society and especially politicians to account for endangering our futures. Greta Thunberg has become the rockstar of the movement showing how you can get almost anywhere with a near zero carbon footprint.
Trains, boats but not planes - Greta is sticking it to the UN and the USA right now and elevating the issue to the top of the political agenda. Over 60% of the populations of Italy, France & Brazil strongly believe we have a climate change emergency. Even Trump's USA is ahead of the UK. I guess that might indicate why our government is putting into reverse many climate change mitigators - particulary when it comes to favouring polluting methods of transportation over cleaner including us, cleanest of all, cyclists.
