26 Windsordave 4 months ago Is anyone aware that our (US) air is less poluted now than it was 30 years ago? And even more surprising is the fact that the government had nothing to do with it. In my job as a electrical engineer, we began incorporating clean air exhaust systems for every type of industrial manufacturing facility that has been built since the 70's. I have to wonder why not a single "gloom and doom" prognosticator ever brings up that fact. You're missing the point regarding Greta's addressing the issue of climate change. She's not pointing fingers at individual nations....yet, but rather she's bringing into the limelight the state of the world's pollution, not individual countries, neither chiding the biggest offenders nor giving a big thumbs up to countries like Northern Ireland and Denmark for striving for 0 emissions asap. The issue is the state of the world's environment and if significant reductions of CO2 aren't made and made soon, the point of no return for the atmosphere will be met and exceeded. As far as the US is concerned - Canada's further down the list but still too high - it's yearly contribution is growing yearly and hasn't slacked off.And she hasn't even started on what humankind's plastics have done to the oceans. The atmosphere is the focal point first.
