Cassandra addresses the Trojans

Greta speaks:

… what will you tell your children was the reason to fail and leave them facing a climate chaos that you knowingly brought upon them? That it seemed so bad for the economy that we decided to resign the idea of securing future living conditions without even trying?

Our house is still on fire. Your inaction is fueling the flames by the hour. And we are telling you to act as if you loved your children above all else.

My generation, we missed the boat – we were seduced away from any serious attempt to change things, momentarily convinced that dancing in abandoned warehouses might be enough to shift the social paradigm. We had fun, but we were wrong. Greta’s generation will not have the luxury of distraction.

And so my generation’s job is now to shovel the Boomershit out of the way and clear a path for the youth to come through.

No glory, no thanks, only effort. It’s what we owe them.
