I reply:

You're right about the need for a younger spokesperson. So let's all
consult our under-30 friends as to who their idols are (if they have any -
they're so cynical!).

But there is a ray of hope - when young people become parents, they start
to worry about the effects of the environment on their children. And noise
does harm children, as Arline Bronzaft has shown in her work.
