YOUTH AID

Are you a Millennial or GenZer? Do you feel angry and hopeless because of the climate legacy that’s been left to you by the older generations? (If you’re a Baby Boomer or a GenXer, you might want to click over to the Climate Aid page.)

Anyhow, if you are a Millennial or a GenZer, wouldn’t you like to be able to actually do something about your feelings of anger and hopelessness?

Wouldn’t you like to actually feel GOOD, knowing you’re part of a movement that has a practical solution for the climate crisis, a solution that is literally as big as the problem itself? — which, when you think about it, it kinda has to be — a solution designed to benefit your children and grandchildren and their children and grandchildren and their children and grandchildren?

Wouldn’t you like to be able to actually feel hopeful about the future and have truly optimistic expectations?

If your answers are YES, then please consider two more questions. . .

What do the following artists and groups have in common?
They (and others) are all going to be invited to participate in the international YOUTH AID Global Concert Series to raise funds and consciousness to support the Grandchildren’s Fund for a Fossil Fuel Free Future in suing the fossil fuel profiteers for damages to the health and welfare of today’s and tomorrow’s youth.

Like, for example, what the heck is the Grandchildren’s Fund for a Fossil Fuel Free Future?

The Grandchildren’s Fund for a Fossil Fuel Free Future is a nonprofit membership group getting ready to sue the fossil fuel profiteers for damages to the health and welfare of the world’s youth.

The fossil fuel profiteers are

    • the oil and gas drilling and refining conglomerates
    • the coal mining and processing conglomerates
    • the carbon-based electrical production utilities
    • their enablers
      • their institutional investors
        • hedge funds
        • brokerage firms
        • banks
        • pension funds
        • university endowments, etc.
      • their trade associations
      • their allied foundations and think tanks
      • their paid-for congressional hearings expert witnesses, and
      • their bought-and-paid-for state and federal politicians

The Grandchildren’s Fund for a Fossil Fuel Free Future believes there isn’t time to wait for the bought-and-paid-for politicians to realize there is actually a problem, much less how to fix it. The way to fix it is to go right now to the courts and the marketplace — the courts because it’s fast, and the marketplace because that’s where the profiteers have to go to get the money they need to do their dirty work.

As the marketplace sees more and more court cases being filed against not just the conglomerates, but also their enablers, more and more enablers will stop their fossil fuels investments and supportive activity and the conglomerates will be forced to retool for renewable energy.

The Grandchildren’s Fund for a Fossil Fuel Free Future believes that the profiteers who created the problem and benefited financially from it should be held accountable to pay for the injuries they have caused as well as for fixing the problem.

The Grandchildren’s Fund for a Fossil Fuel Free Future will also establish and maintain a data bank repository of scientific and legal information to be made available as a Climate Crisis Lawsuit Kit for cities, counties and others to expedite bringing similar lawsuits, both in the United States and in other countries.

This will all take time and lots of money which is where the YOUTH AID Global Concert Series comes in — the more money we raise and the quicker we raise it, the shorter the time until we win in the marketplace and eventually in the courts.

The YOUTH AID Global Concert Series will begin in 2018.

Would you like to know more? (The little bit LONGER version)
Like, for example, what the heck is the Grandchildren’s Fund for a Fossil Fuel Free Future?

The Grandchildren’s Fund for a Fossil Fuel Free Future is a nonprofit membership group currently organizing to bring lawsuits against the fossil fuel profiteers for damages to the health and welfare of today’s and tomorrow’s youth and to administer anticipated settlement monies for their benefit.

The fossil fuel profiteers are the tier #1 oil and gas drilling and refining conglomerates, the coal mining and processing conglomerates, and the carbon-based electrical production utilities, as well as their tier #2 enablers: their institutional investors (hedge funds, brokerage firms, banks, pension funds, university endowments, etc.), their trade associations, their allied foundations and think tanks, their paid-for congressional hearings expert witnesses, and their bought-and-paid-for state and federal politicians.

The basic strategy of the Grandchildren’s Fund for a Fossil Fuel Free Future is to quickly utilize both the courts and the marketplace — the courts, where the fossil fuel profiteers can be held accountable right away, without having to wait for years until enough politicians are either magically enlightened or replaced, and the marketplace, where the fossil fuel conglomerates must go daily to obtain the money they need for their ongoing operations.

In the courts, lawsuits can be filed immediately against both the tier #1 conglomerates and their tier #2 enablers. And in the marketplace the mere prospect of their own substantial vulnerability, as well as the certain vulnerability of the tier #1 conglomerates, will be enough to cause the tier #2 enablers to increasingly, possibly precipitously, abandon fossil fuel ownership and investments, thereby compelling the tier #1 conglomerates to self-defensively retool themselves for renewable energy production much sooner than they would otherwise have done.

The very simple premise of the Grandchildren’s Fund for a Fossil Fuel Free Future is that the profiteers who created the problem and benefited financially from it should be held accountable to recompense the injuries they have caused and to pay for fixing the problem.

The Grandchildren’s Fund for a Fossil Fuel Free Future will also establish and maintain a data bank repository of scientific and legal information to be made available as Climate Crisis Lawsuit Kits for cities, counties and others to expedite bringing similar lawsuits, both in the United States and in other countries.

This is going to take time and money which is where the YOUTH AID Global Concert Series comes in — the more money we raise and the quicker we raise it, the shorter the time until we can achieve results in the marketplace and eventually in the courts.

The YOUTH AID Global Concert Series will begin in 2018.
