To put it mildly. This is the point that youth activists are making as well. The adults, the grown-ups in the rooms of power, are sitting on their asses and playing pass the buck (or rather bill), and the bill will be paid by our children, not future generations many years from now, but by our children and grandchildren. It is not a good story. It is no legacy. It is our deep and abiding shame that knowingly, willfully, we made this be so.
