It appears the baby boomers are up to their old tricks again.
A hilarious viral letter which calls students who protest against climate change “selfish” has resurfaced.
The letter begins:
You are the first generation who have required air-conditioning in every classroom. You want TV in every room and your classes are all computerised. You spend all day and night on electronic devices. More than ever, you don't walk or ride bikes to school but arrive in caravans of private cars that choke local roads and worsen rush hour traffic.
In classic old man yells at cloud fashion, the ageing Australian claims:
You are selfish, badly educated, virtue signalling little 'princesses', inspired by the adults around you who crave a feeling of having a 'noble cause' while they indulge themselves in Western luxury and unprecedented quality of life.
The best response to all this nonsense came from the person who wrote:
Typical baby boomer post with no idea about the modern world and how anything works. Your generation decided coal is the future. Your generation continually votes in a government who do nothing about climate issues, renewables and pollution. Your generation ruined the economy. Your generation has ruined the planet. Ours is trying to save it.
Someone fetch that man a napkin, he's been served.
