NEW YORK – A boisterous crowd of at least 200,000 people turned out to chant and march in Manhattan on Friday, joining hundreds of thousands - possibly millions - of protesters from Australia to Thailand to London in Global Climate Strike rallies.

While supporters of all ages turned out, the day was billed as a walkout by high school students to call on world leaders to step up their efforts against climate change, carbon emissions and other environmental issues.

Greta Thunberg, the noted 16-year-old Swedish environmental activist whose efforts have been raising environmental consciousness around the globe, spoke to a crowd of  tens of thousands in New York City's Battery Park.

"Around the world today about 4 million people have been striking," Thunberg said. "This is the biggest climate strike ever in history and we all should be so proud of ourselves because we have done this together."

New York City schools excused the city's 1.1 million students from class to participate.

 

=======================================================

 

Schools excusing student so they can protest....like they could not have waited to Saturday! 

 

Whats next?

 

It says a lot about our schools....not good. 


You miss the point once more Kidboy2.  This says GOOD THINGS about America's students !!!!!  We should listen to them and SCIENCE, just as they say.

 

What's next ??????   I hope it is that close minded old folks start listening to them.

I have heard several comments about how the kids got a free pass from school to attend these rallies. Makes sense to me. Kids should be able to see history being made whenever possible.

=========================================================

They should have had the Global Climate Strike on Saturday. Why not?

I think the students learn about climate change in school.....if not they should.

We have the radicals instilling in the minds of people that the sky is falling and the world will end in 20,30,40 years (pick your year) if we do not do away with fossil fuels .

And its the left that are scaring the ignorant but I think you know that.

Ironic that this is all happening while Texas cities are being hammered by the worst storms in quite some time.  Happening over and over again. Even in New Mexico we have had a couple 500 year floods in the past few years. 

 

Same thing in Maryland, they're talking about razing Ellicott City due to climate change flooding.

ELLICOTT CITY, Md. (AP) — Moving to safeguard the public after raging floodwaters engulfed a Maryland town’s main street twice in two years, authorities have announced a plan to demolish roughly 5 percent of the buildings in the flood-prone historic district.

To save the world and country and the end of Trump as President which would be very good. 2020 can not get here quick enough. In most places the kids just took the day off to handle more important maters, and that is good. Sadly here in the US we have dictator Trump who is in the process of destroying our Climate along with the Country.

The protests show the next generation is more than aware of the impact of MMGW on their lives and willing to work to get it fixed.
