      And no generation, it appears, is to be allowed to enjoy their childhood without having to stay up at night worrying about how their world is going to be destroyed.

      With me, it was imminent nuclear war. Then the population bomb, followed by pollution from toxic waste, ozone depletion,and now AGW. Children are made to suffer so adults can get their profound “last generation” thing on.
