    Why It Is A Crisis

    23 Reasons to Climate Strike Today; Take to the streets

    Bill McKibben, September 19, 2019 (The Nation)

    Editor’s note: Bill McKibben, the author of this piece, is recognized around the world as one of the leaders of the fight against the climate crisis.

    “…[Youth climate strikes started last fall. After the May strike of 1.4 million kids, adults were invited to join. September 20] is shaping up to be the biggest day of climate action in the planet’s history…[The many reasons to take part include because] people losing their farms to deserts and watching their islands sink beneath the waves aren’t the ones who burned the coal and gas and oil…because coral reefs are so gloriously beautiful and complex—and so vulnerable…because sun and wind are now the cheapest way to generate power around the world…

    …because we’ve already lost half the animals on the planet since 1970…because our governments move with such painful slowness…[because this could be the last opportunity] to transform our society towards justice and towards joy…because forests now seem like fires waiting to happen…[because kids are hoping their elders will stand] up for what matters…because every generation faces some great crisis, and this is ours…because half the children in New Delhi have irreversible lung damage simply from breathing…

    …because Exxon and the rest knew all about global warming in the 1980s, and then lied so they could keep cashing in…because what we do this decade will matter for hundreds of thousands of years…[because the human body can survive today’s highest temperatures for] only for a few hours…[because we don’t] want to be the first generations to leave the planet in worse shape…because batteries are ever cheaper… because the UN estimates unchecked climate change could create a billion refugees this century…because people continue] to get rich off the destruction of the planet.” click here for more
