Oh really?

Old person: "How do you feel about renewable energy?"

Young person (without script): (In his/her head........Looks around. Do I give an answer? This wasn't in the class notes. I heard the answer in a class lecture once. Where is someone to advise me about my opinion? What do I do?)

To bring 'awareness'? Good thing to do in case there is one senjin in a mountain cave that has not heard climate change mentioned this week.
