"The marquee Tri-Valley 2040 Regional Visionary Award is going to the lead team behind organizing the inaugural Youth Climate Summit centered on raising awareness and exploring collective solutions for climate change..."

Not surprising this is considered "marquee" in the Tri-Valley, but there is nothing "invigorating" about this - if you like living in a free society and want to be economically better off in the future.

We're already having enough trouble raising awareness to so called adults that you can't supply the energy needs of the nation with solar panels/windmills, excessive government spending on green projects/cutting off domestic oil production is driving inflation, and other nations (China, Russia, etc.) will continue to pollute as much as they wish. The "collective solutions" and "vision" of climate change activists is just more government control over the economy/citizens - and the managed decline that goes with it. No thanks.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
