    Next Up For The Global Youth Climate Strikers

    Suyin Haynes, March 29, 2019 (Time)

    “…[An estimated 1.6 million students in over 120 countries] left school on March 15 in protest of adult inaction on climate change…The school climate strikes started with teen activist Greta Thunberg standing vigil outside Sweden’s parliament one Friday last August…Thunberg’s idea has grown into a global movement…[T]he lack of a centralized organizational hub makes it easy for teenagers to arrange actions in their own towns and cities; rallies took place in more than 2,200 towns and cities worldwide…Their most pressing hope is for immediate policy measures to meet the terms of the Paris Agreement, limiting the global temperature increase to 1.5° celsius this century, as well as specific local action…

    …[The effort] has changed the discourse…[F]or now, that’s all they can change; the youth that draws them to the cause is also an obstacle. Most of the movement’s participants are not just battling the obvious challenges of political inertia, powerful fossil fuel lobbies and disbelieving critics—they are also too young to play a bigger role in business or politics…[But] they are determined to continue the Friday strikes…It’s up to the world’s politicians to act.” click here for more
