Young Warmists Say Lawmakers Will Totally Listen To Them

Here’s a tough, hard, real world lesson for them: the only way politicians actually listen is if you are high profile and/or donate a lot of money. Otherwise, they’ll pretend to listen and simply patronize you

Earth Uprising Climate Change Activist Says ‘Lawmakers Will Listen’ to Youth Movement

As young people around the world become increasingly aware of how climate change is impacted by decisions made by lawmakers, they’ve been starting their own coalitions that push for real policy change.

Alexandria Villaseñor, the 15-year-old founder of Earth Uprising, a global movement focusing on policy spearheaded by youth climate activists, said young people’s willingness to share information, educate each other regarding the climate crisis and demand change is working.

“I think that one thing that the youth movement has made clear is that lawmakers will listen to us because we continue to take action and make our voices heard,” she told Cheddar.

Villaseñor said she launched Earth Uprising after the devastating 2018 Paradise Fire in Northern California.

“Seeing climate impact my community, that was something that I wanted to find out more about,” she explained.

The Paradise fire was caused by mankind, but not via carbon pollution: it was negligence from maintaining power lines and allowing a buildup of vegetation. I’d also be interested in knowing exactly what action they are taking themselves to reduce their carbon footprints. Mostly, this seems the same as the Sunrise Movement (the other young climate cultist organization): agitation, spreading awareness, a lot of yelling and screeching, a lot of Demanding.

Have they considered that, per their own beliefs, ‘climate change’ is impacted not by lawmaker decisions but by their own actions?

Earth Uprising has not only garnered the attention of global policymakers, but it also found itself a corporate partner in GAP Kids, working to shine a light on youth leaders through a virtual rally, set for Friday.

“I think it’s amazing that they’re giving all these youth activists the support and space to tell our stories and send our messages to a larger audience,” Villaseñor said.

The social campaign, according to Villaseñor, will use the hashtag #BeTheFutureThatWill to encourage young people to make their voices heard about issues that they want to have addressed, whether it is climate change or otherwise.

Remember when we were supposed to only listen to climate scientists? Now we’re supposed to listen to kids. Let’s start taxing the hell out of their allowances to reduce the kids’ carbon footprints, see how they like it. How many would continue to spout their cultish talking points and go to protests and such if they had the policies from their beliefs forced on their own lives?

    Judging by the responses of the Democrats to the idiotic #BlackLivesMatter — at least, they matter if ended by a white police officer — protesters, some politicians do listen to those who yell the loudest, even if what they are yelling is just bone stupid.

    Crying babies do attract attention, you know.
