Listen to the Voices of the Children and of the Scientists - Act upon Climate Change

Climate Change action activist, ecologist and school girl, Greta Thunberg, 16, of Sweden, addressed the French National Assembly on Tuesday and again implored politicians to take action to protecting the environment. 

Miss Thunberg and the growing number of children, who have joined her in asking world leaders to take action on Climate Change, should be commended for her service on behalf of humanity and the continuity of the human species on Planet Earth.

While most of France and the international community continue to admire and to respect Miss Thunberg's endeavors carried out in the name sake of all the world's people, an unfortunate few denying, aging, attention-seeking and dying relics of the human species example, still stand in opposition to the scientific message of the young Swede.

Embarrassing members of the far right and republican parties in France urged boycotting, and some boycotted Miss Thunberg's invited address to the French National Assembly. She was invited to speak, according to France24, by 162 National Assembly members from a cross-party group, Let's Accelerate, concerned about Climate Change. 

Despite the drama from the French far right, the Swedish school girl noted: "Some people have chosen not to come here today, some have chosen not to listen to us. And that's fine. We are, after all, just children," France24 reported. She admitted: "You don't have to listen to us. But you have to listen to the science...and that is all we ask, to unite behind the science."

Days after Miss Thunberg's visit to the French Parliament, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Germany and other European nations reported record breaking high temperatures.  A new norm? 

Whatever, simply, humanity needs to listen to the voices of the children, of the scientists and of the still rational people and act on Climate Change.
