Snow flakes are quite literally melting from climate change, they even gave it a fancy name....

Young Minnesotans with 'climate grief' are feeling anxiety

"My whole generation wonders if we're getting cheated out of a full future, and we can't put it out of our minds," she said. "It's an anxiety-inducing situation."

That anxiety has a name: climate grief.

Knew this was coming but didn't think it would happen this fast.  Triggered by our racist founders of an evil nation...of course.

Founding Fathers under attack: Students demand Thomas Jefferson statue removal

tudents at Hofstra University protested a statue of Thomas Jefferson on Friday at the second annual event, titled “Jefferson Has Gotta Go!”

The protest came just hours after George Washington University students voted to ditch the school's mascot, "George the Colonial," named after another Founding Father, George Washington.

High school may erase mural of George Washington: ‘traumatizes students’

‘Glorifies slavery, genocide, colonization, manifest destiny’

A Northern California public school district may remove a mural of George Washington from the halls of George Washington High School due to concerns that it’s offensive and demeaning to Native Americans and African-Americans.

This is terrifying....Smith leads into the disposal!! ;D

Ocasio-Cortez on discovering garbage disposals: ‘It is terrifying’

‘I am told this is a garbage disposal. I’ve never seen a garbage disposal. I never had one in any place I’ve ever lived. It is terrifying. I don’t know what it’s for, or what its purpose is. Like, food scraps? Like, is this environmentally sound?’

Endlessly entertaining...Snowflakes are snowflakes about being snowflakes.

Millennials and Gen Z really ARE snowflakes: Scientists find people aged 18 to 25 are the most upset when they're labelled narcissistic, entitled and oversensitive

Researchers questioned more than 1,000 student and 724 of other age groups
All age groups said they believe that they are the most narcissistic and entitled
But millennials and Generation Z dislike the 'snowflake' characterisation
These groups also tend to believe it less than older generations do, study notes

awhhhh...that's so cute...

Young people blame climate change for their small 401(k) balances

Many young people today think civilization may not exist when they’re of retirement age. Here are ways to get them to invest for the future.

Lori Rodriguez, a 27-year-old communications professional in New York City, is not saving for retirement, and it isn’t necessarily because she can’t afford to — it’s because she doesn’t expect it to matter.

Like many people her age, Rodriguez believes climate change will have catastrophic effects on our planet. Some 88% of millennials — a higher percentage than any other age group — accept that climate change is happening, and 69% say it will impact them in their lifetimes. Engulfed in a constant barrage of depressing news stories, many young people are skeptical about saving for an uncertain future.

“I want to hope for the best and plan for a future that is stable and secure, but, when I look at current events and at the world we are predicting, I do not see how things could not be chaotic in 50 years,” Rodriguez says. “The weather systems are already off, and I don’t think it’s hyperbolic to be a little apocalyptic.”
