They are virtually 100% pro doing something. Well, for the sake of argument, I agree there is climate change.Yes, M. Mehr Sharma, there’s no debate. It’s a naturally recurring phenomenon that’s been going on since the beginning of time. I don’t believe it’s caused by human activity. I don’t believe cow flatulation or burping is the problem either. The common theory is it’s caused by the sun’s activity and the Earth’s orbit around the sun. But don’t take my word for it. Do your own research. Start with Dr. Timothy Ball.I believe there’s nothing that we can do to stop it, reverse it or prevent it. What we can do is adapt to the changes. It probably means building things differently — but not totally changing our energy sources and our eating habits, at least by the force of government.We should do all we can to prevent pollution. The best way I can think of is through private innovation, not forced government action.All the drastic ideas like getting rid of fossil fuel energy and not eating meat are ludicrous.They’re being espoused by people who are brainwashing our children and the feeble minded.It’s all a ruse to create a progressive dream government that will control everything.John GaetaniGlenvilleWhat kids can do to fight climate changeIn a news report, I heard school children skipping school to join a protest for the environment.If they are truly concerned and want to do their part, here’s my plan:Stage 1: Stop parents from driving kids to school or the bus stop and sitting in idling carbon-spewing cars. Be at the bus stop when you are supposed to be, so buses and cars are not sitting and idling.Stage 2: All homes are allowed one television used for only 3 hours a day, stop using all unnecessary electronic devices game’s and cell phones for entertainment.Stage 3: Eliminate school building’s and set up schools in homes with state-of-the-art computers. We could put tracking devices on school children to make sure they are in front of computers. Teachers are pushing this agenda, so if we really have to save the planet, let’s start with the folks who really want this. No heating old school buildings, less garbage every day, less electrical use. No employees driving to work. Come on. Us old folks will be dead and gone, so this is what you kids can do to save your planet. Seems far-fetched, but that’s what the left is pushing.Robert SponableSchenectady More from The Daily Gazette:Foss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusGov.
