Young people from around the world are leading a massive coordinated strike from school on Friday, September 20, to protest government and business inaction on climate change. It is likely to be one of the largest environmental protests in history.
The Global Climate Strike comes just before countries will gather at the United Nations for the Climate Action Summit on September 23, an event ahead of the UN General Assembly where countries are supposed to ramp up their ambitions to curb greenhouse gases under the 2015 Paris climate agreement. A second worldwide strike is planned for September 27.
I cannot join in this strike/protest by marching, so I will be joining the digital strike on Friday. A notice to that affect will be posted on my blog.

Good read – Now rethinking about it, do you think our local and state governments are aware that Vacation Rentals (homestays, limited STRs and commercial STRs) cause a great deal of the greenhouse gas? So not only do Vacation Rentals play an active roll in removing valuable community housing, they seem to be more harmful health wise too!
Okay, I’m a 70 year old guy, but this 16 year old girl is an inspiration. I stand with her!
When I added the plugin to Bicycling Monterey on Sept 6, there were only 10 downloads of the plugin. Today there are over 500. Thanks for being among them, Kate. Whether one can march or strike or not, we can all help get the word out!
We knew about CO2 and climate since 1895, the information was suppressed for oil profits, exxon did a study in 1977 and then suppressed the information again, here we are now 124 years later and the US government is denying the science, deregulating, Suppressing and dismantling the EPA, for profit.
Those in power would rather have a genocide than a revolution.
