10. I'm a boomer, and sensitive--

Yet anyone who is older and denies climate change should be corrected. (Anyone younger also.) We're not going to be alive for the worst of climate change, but the young people are. So unless we are for climate change mitigation, we should sit down and shut up about it.

(Of course, many of us are worried about the planet and always have been, but there's no doubt most people who deny climate change are able to do so because they are never going to live long enough to truly suffer from it. I'm thinking of all the people who retired to Florida and keep voting for governors and senators who assure them that though the state is pretty much at sealevel and surrounded on three sides by ocean, there's nothing to worry about... or pay taxes to prevent.)
