Young activists arrested at Mitch McConnell's office while demanding action on climate change

Looks like the old guard, no matter the party affiliation, are getting a lot of attention from the kids who have to live in the hurricane-saturated world the Big Oil generation has created. Green New Deal please. Big solutions time. We have 12 years to turn things around. Thankfully most Democrats are already with the kids... and the scientists.

Young people, worried for their future, are tired of waiting around for politicians to negotiate deals with the planet. Senators have been hiding in their offices for fear of facing these young people. Today’s big coward was Sen. Mitch McConnell.

They sang and marched peacefully up and down the hallway.

McConnell, who likely has 10 panic buttons throughout his office, may have pressed all of them, because the kids were being arrested for their part in the protest. This comes a short while after the protesters were warned that this kind of peaceful protest freaks people out.
