'Robbed' 

Editor:

As British investigative journalist George Monbiot remarked, calling our planet's temperature increase "climate change" is like describing an invading army as "unexpected guests." The children striking on the Arcata Plaza last Friday (NCJ Daily, Sept. 26) have awakened to the fact that they are an oppressed minority being robbed of their right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Emissions increase yearly, and you quote Kate McKinnon's understatement, "Congress remains inactive," reminiscent of governments' reaction to the Parkland children's outcry.

"If there is hope, it lies in the plebes," to quote a different George.
