"Millennials, and Gen z, and all these folks that come after us, are looking up and we're like 'the world will end in 12 years if we don't address climate change, and your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it?'"  Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez:


Stuart I included it as a bit of humor.  I will freely confess two things: she is a cute rascal and she makes me laugh.  I can watch her speeches with the sound muted.

A characteristic of kids is they don't realize how short a time is 10 years.  Not much changes in 10 years.  Internet time it is forever.  Technology time, it is a lot.  Nature... doesn't even notice 10 years go by.
