It's time to act, not to think, said many green engaged three or four years ago. It was time for Greta Thunberg, climate striker and Extinction Rebellion, with significant use of outspokenness.

The critical wave created vibrations, but the changes were not as great as many had hoped. Maybe they were a little too one-sided, those who suggested that balanced thinking was the wrong use of time?
