Boomers Sold Out the Millenials?
Global warming? Yeah, we all need to do better on that one. I tip my hat to my many friends who ride their bikes as an alternative to burning of fossil fuel, but I wonder of the people who are complaining that my generation has brought on global warming – how many of them drive? And when I was growing up, the global issue we faced was learning how to avoid catastrophic contamination of the environment by nuclear waste – or even better, fallout from a global nuclear confrontation.
And on that one, you’re welcome. When I was starting out as an adult, many people thought an all-out nuclear war was a near certainty, that it was just a matter of time. Managing to avoid having a global nuclear meltdown took decades of committed global diplomacy and a razor’s edge balance to strong national security.
