Generation Z Is More Concerned About ‘Climate Change’ Than Anything Else

Yet, strangely, almost none of them will give up their own modern lives, their use of fossil fuels (directly and indirectly), pay massive taxes/fees to Government, nor give up their freedom and choice

Generation Z Fears Climate Change More Than Anything Else

Climate change tops the list of vital challenges of our time, say young people interviewed by Amnesty International. The new ‘Future of humanity’ survey of over 10,000 18-25-year olds across 22 countries reveals that 41% of respondents cited global warming as the most important issue facing the world. Amnesty International published the findings today at the UN Climate Change Conference to mark Human Rights Day.

Considering that 2019 saw the youth mobilised to ask climate action, the results weren’t surprising. “This is a wake-up call to world leaders that they must take far more decisive action to tackle the climate emergency or risk betraying younger generations further,” said Kumi Naidoo, secretary general of Amnesty International.

In total, 41% respondents selected climate change, followed by pollution (36%) and terrorism (31%). Global warming also ranked highest among environmental issues, at 57%.

So, we’re supposed to listen to kids who haven’t really entered the Real World and eat Tide Pods, and are more focused on their Instagram and other social media stuff? I wouldn’t listen to my 20 year old self.

Finally, 73% of respondents said governments should take most responsibility for ensuring human rights are upheld – rather than individuals (15%), businesses (6%) and charities (4%).

In other words, Government should dictate our freedom.

“If the leaders of the world are willing to listen carefully, they will notice that Generation Z are not asking for small tweaks. Young people are looking for fundamental changes in the way the world works,” added Naidoo. “If the events of 2019 teach us anything, it is that younger generations deserve a seat at the table when it comes to decisions about them.

Most of them have provided nothing of value in their lives yet, but, they want to dictate these changes? Piss off. It’d be interesting to do they same survey with the same people 10 years from now, once they are in Adult World, and see how they feel. But, then, they’ve also been overly indoctrinated.

  1. It makes sense. That generation is closest to the institutional information spout so they are most likely to regurgitate what their teachers told them. They aren’t old enough yet to actually look at the real world around them and compare what they see with their own eyes to what they are told is true. They haven’t yet developed the cynicism that comes from discovering other people have been lying to them their whole lives.

      An interesting diagnosis, Professor. So what’s Fredo’s excuse?

        Well Dildo, maybe I just pay more attention to the world than you.

        What’s your excuse for your continued ignorance and anger?

        Once you’re dead and in the ground, the kids will have one less person lying to them.

          The only continued ignorance and anger belongs to Hypocrite Hare and he doesn’t pay attention to the world.

          All he has is hate. and envy.

          Actually, that’s you, not him. He tells the truth.
