"You’ll die of old age, I’ll die of climate change"

On the C40 Blog of Mark Watts at c40.org I read what the young generation says: “You’ll die of old age, I’ll die of climate change”.
After many weeks of (summer) silence I raise my voice again, also because I was stunned by the climate headlines of this (nearly) gone summer. I was in August on Mount Etna on fire-tortured Sicily and saw helicopters with water hurrying low over our house towards Nicolosi, where there was a fire, too. I know it's a big issue in the US, too.
Another headline from Germany (https://energyeducation.se/germany-near-blackout) about a near blackout on Aug, 14 surprised me and showed how we humans are squeezed between our dependence on energy and the climate disasters, of which a totally serene region of Germany was deeply affected two weeks earlier.
