Bad news: a climate activist died in the US

In the United States, a very bad thing happened, a climate activist died after setting himself on fire in front of the Supreme Court last Friday, which was Earth Day. Unfortunately this is not the first time something like this has happened; as reported by the Guardian, in 2018 an activist had sacrificed himself for the climate cause, but it is important to remember that, although these episodes make us understand how much some people suffer from the climate crisis, such extreme gestures are never the solution and are not absolutely to be taken as examples. What can be done is to keep hoping for a change in the right direction.
