A baby boomer wrote an open letter on Facebook as more than 300,000 protesters in 110 cities and towns rallied across Australia.
Protestors flooded the streets as part of a global movement to demand action on climate change.
The open letter is addressed “To all the school kids going on strike for climate change.”
“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.
“You are the biggest consumers of manufactured goods ever and update perfectly good expensive luxury items to stay trendy. Your entertainment comes from electric devices.
“Furthermore, the people driving your protests are the same people who insist on artificially inflating the population growth through immigration, which increases the need for energy, manufacturing and transport.
“The more people we have, the more forest and bushland we clear and more of the environment is destroyed.
“How about this… Tell your teachers to switch off the air-con. Walk or ride to school. Switch off your devices and read a book.
“Make a sandwich instead of buying manufactured fast food.
“No, none of this will happen because 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.
“Wake up, grow up and learn to research facts and think for yourself and not blindly accept the words and thoughts of others.”
The letter added: “I don’t think you formulated this action plan all by your self – suspect you may have had some influence and ‘guidance’ from those you trust …a word of warning, be cautious of the influence of the ‘left’ because there may be a time in the future that you will be the ones left out…”
The letter has been shared over 200K times and still circulates on the internet.
Another internet user commented: “Kids are sticking up for their future’.
“All the bad s**t you say the kids are doing, were taught, or given to them, by you. You gave them a phone at 10 years old, you gave them a TV in their room, you gave them the Xbox, you gave them the ride to school.
“And now that they have woken up to all the bulls**t you gave them, feed them, and enforced your shallow views on them, they are trying to make a stand and do the right thing.
“Stop bullying kids that are trying to make a difference.”
