I CANNOT but sympathise with those young folk organising a UK-wide Youth Strike 4 Climate (“Forget protest, pupils urged”, The Herald, February 11) to take place on Friday (February 15).

After all we of the older generations have taken woefully inadequate action to take care of their futures. What choice do they have other than to take matters into their own hands?

As Rosemary Goring says (“We need a battle plan now if we are to save the planet”, The Herald, February 13) “people in power are not doing nearly enough to avert impending danger... tinkering won’t change anything”.
