Youts Want A Green New Deal For Their Schools

Heck, I say we give it too them, starting with ending the use of fossil fueled buses immediately. And no fossil fueled vehicles may drop them off. Let them walk or bike. Turn the heat down to 62 and the AC up to 78. Let them deal with it. Turn the WiFi off at school because it uses lots of electricity. No meat served at lunch. For a start

Young people push for a Green New Deal for schools across the U.S.

Many young people want their schools to help prepare them to face the climate crisis.

So students in the Sunrise Movement have been lobbying their local school boards across the country to pass a Green New Deal for Schools. In the Boulder Valley School District in Colorado, they recently celebrated a win.

Student activist Tilly Testa says the new resolution requires the district to implement clean energy initiatives, include climate change in the curriculum, and create disaster plans.

Testa: “We want students to have climate disaster plans, so when a climate disaster strikes, like the Marshall or NCAR fire that recently evacuated our community, students feel prepared and safe and know what to do.”

Huh? This is cult talk. Schools should have disaster plans. Most do, based on the potential dangers. Of course, how do they plan for idiots who intentionally/unintentionally start fires? It’s interesting what the youts are demanding, per they GND link


And demanding to be included in making the plans, because high school and elementary school children have vast knowledge of how things work, right? Did you notice what’s missing? The notion that the kids would make any changes in their own lives. They’re all for demanding they be given things, but, what are they offering? You rarely run across any of these Sunrise Movement kids discussing the changes they made in their own lives. Weird, eh?

    And, as noted, nothing is surrendered. Let’s withhold all fossil-fuels and petrochemicals from these schools.

    The average carbon footprint of an American has decreased 25% in the last 20 years. That is a result of mandated changes such as increased fuel efficiency, lighting that uses less power, and more efficient appliances. The total amount of electricity used in the USA has been basically flat for the last 30 years even though our population has gone up by 35%. The cost of electricity has gone up by an average of only 2% per year not skyrocketing.

    Alan your envy of their youth is palpable.

    Immaterial ? Our elites are demanding that kids give up all carbon pollution while they do not?

    And no “free lunches” !! That was a hoot coming from an alumnae of one of it not THE most expensive private high school in the entire USA,
    That is like David’s justification of
    Germany beginning WW 2

    Teach mocks school children:

    high school and elementary school children have vast knowledge of how things work, right?

    Has Mr Teach listened to Mr Trump or the typical far-right blogger lately?

  7. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Mr Teach always falls back to punishing those with ideas contrary to his own. Especially kids.

    We get it. Conservatives dislike kids with their optimism and energy. Why should they have fun while Teach has to work? Conservatives hate education and schools. More education = fewer conservatives.
