    Global Youth March Demands Climate Response

    Kids around the world plan to skip school this Friday to demand action on climate change

    Harmeet Kaur, March 13, 2019 (CNN)

    “Young people around the world are not interested in excuses when it comes to dealing with climate change…Every year of their lives has been one of the warmest recorded. Extreme weather events, including floods, wildfires and heat waves, are [their norm and many] believe that, if nothing is done to stop global warming, their generation will be left to deal with catastrophic consequences…[On March 15, tens of thousands worldwide] will be cutting class and taking to the streets to demand that elected officials act…The global climate strike on March 15 is an offshoot of the #FridaysForFuture movement…

    It began with Greta Thunberg, the 16-year-old environmental activist, who in August 2018 started skipping school on Fridays to protest outside Sweden's parliament…[S]he roasted the global elite at the World Economic Forum by telling them they were to blame for the climate crisis. Before that, she delivered a damning speech at the United Nations' climate conference… Thunberg has said she won't stop…Her protests have inspired thousands of young people…Students in more than 90 countries and more than 1,200 cities around the world plan to join the strike in what could be one of the largest environmental protests in history…

    If human-generated greenhouse gas emissions continue at the current rate, the planet will reach 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels as soon as 2030…Global warming at that temperature would put the planet at a greater risk of events like extreme drought, wildfires, floods and food shortages for hundreds of millions of people…[In an open letter, youth-led] climate activists called climate change "the biggest threat in human history" and said young people will no longer accept the inaction of world leaders…” click here for more
