Climate Protest in Spain

Climate Protest in Spain

OK.  I guess you can't fix stupid.  Maybe I'm just getting too old and cynical.  I mean, I should understand this shit as it is an outgrowth of the sixties which in some ways I was sorry I was too young to be that cool.

Since then, I've grown up.  The protests that folks have these days just seem to have lost that, er, focus.  I have to ask the obvious here.  What the heck does a guy named Goya who died in 1828 have to do with climate change.  What the heck do a couple of his paintings have to do with climate change?  And I'm just going to go out on a limb here, but I'm thinking that their glue added more carbon back into the air than Goya's paintings have in about two hundred years.
