Thousands of students are today striking calling for the government to take urgent action over the environment.

[Link]

As these young people are so concerned about saving the planet and its resources I thought I would help them with my suggestions.

- Teenagers who forget to turn the lights off or unplug their chargers should have then pocket money deducted.
- Screen time on mobiles and video gaming should be restricted to 30 mins per day.
- Fast food and fizzy drinks to be banned its unhealthy for the environment and the customer.
- All schools to introduce compulsory PE especially cross country running and cold showers of course to save on the heating.
- Children to be used to sweep chimneys so that coal fires are more efficient.
- The school day to be extended to 12 hours including Saturday its more energy efficient to group people together.
- Hollywood blockbuster movies, cinemas and popcorn to be banned as incredibly energy inefficient.
- Vegan diet to be introduced with compulsory Brussels sprouts and cauliflower.

I am totally with you on everything apart from the Veganism. All these little eco-warrior nerds will be Vegans anyway, being a beta male/ weird hipster chick is the in thing for this generation of weaklings.

Better change that to being force fed a good old fashioned battery hen.

The only real hope for the younger generation is that the older one should die off in sufficient numbers.

Ah the "Logans Run" solution I like it as long as there is an opt out for people who live in Beckenham.

Many years ago there was a political party called "Ban the Old Fogies" they didn't stand in my area which was was a pity I liked the idea.

Perhaps Beckenham people could have a 'backstop' instead.....

Once someone starts to pay tax then I will listen to their opinion. If like in there case, they have up to this point had everything provided by parents/society then they have no right to say how anything should be run or how tax payers money should be spent.

How much school encouragement of politicisation is going on here?

If it helps the debate, the younger Miss YT - still at school whereas her older sister is now at university - said that she wouldn't be taking part in the protest today, because she thinks it's (the protest is) "ridiculous".
