The boomers didn’t start the issues. If one wishes to get to the core of our problem, one would need to travel thousands of years into the past. Where ever hominins have lived, they have caused mass extinctions as well as damage to every biome in which they existed. Deforestation, using the same methods as today, accompanied the invention of agriculture. Irrigation meddled with rivers. Mining for materials with which to construct permanent buildings began. Desiring material goods like gold, silver, and other precious metals and minerals demolished fauna and flora. And on and on with examples/issues. Climate change was being researched in the 19th century.I would opine that we humans can slap bandaids on bothersome problems. Only until the danger is smack dab smashed into our faces do we finally realize something must be fixed. Boomers have accomplished some improvements. Now it’s the younger generations time to continue – with the help of boomers? or against the boomers?
