On March 15, school students in 957 locations around 82 countries will rise up and strike for a safe climate. Inspired by a Swedish teenager, this is the first worldwide strike in favor of pro-climate regulations. This is sure to speak volumes about needed regulations (i.e. emission cuts) as we move into the future. As an American, we can finally begin what is likely to be a long series of protests to eventually cut our carbon emissions. The youth is counting on action by the government; we must be the driving force of this change. Ask around to find if there are any strikes occurring in your community, and get involved!
