Re: “ ‘You are failing us’: Climate talks feature plans, frustration,” Sept. 24 news story

I watched Greta Thunberg’s speech. She has every right to be angry at me.

I have decided to do better.

Of late, I have developed a nasty environmental habit related to my phone. Many times I sit in my idling car reading or writing emails. My car is just parked and idling. Not only am I polluting the atmosphere with noxious emissions from my idling engine for no reason, I am wasting gas money.

I am breaking this bad habit immediately. And I am focusing on other bad environmental habits to break.

Thank you Greta!

It’s unfortunate Trump’s Camp David Peace Summit with the Taliban fell through and spoiled his plans to angle for that Nobel Peace Prize he so covets.

I think this year’s prize should be awarded to young Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg, someone who truly cares about something greater than herself, and is passionate about making the world a better place.
