Hope is Contagious

As you know by now, Greta Thunberg is one of my heroes, her courage, her leadership and her commitment are an inspiration in the face of some very bleak climate science. This attached article is a conversation between Greta and Alexandria Oasio-Cortez, one of the authors of the Green New Deal submitted to the US Congress. They discuss what it is like to be dismissed for their age and for their lack of experience. Greta Thunberg has been brutally critiqued by the Gerrman far right, as has Oasio-Cortez in the United States, and yet, in this article, they talk about their hope and dreams that they can change the agenda.
