The only word for this is amazing.

They are in open revolt.

Anxious about their future on a hotter planet, angry at world leaders for failing to arrest the crisis, thousands of young people began pouring into the streets on Friday for a day of global climate protest.

In New York the main demonstration was scheduled for midday, but participants began assembling early and it appeared that turnout would be large. Many brought handmade signs. “Think or Swim,” one read.

“I’m feeling very hopeful,” said Azalea Danes, 20, a senior at the Bronx High School of Science who was waiting at Foley Square for protests to begin. “This is our first inter generational strike.”

Sixteen year old Greta Thunberg gets a lot of criticism from assholes, but what she has accomplished today is mind-boggling. 

I certainly hope that politicians around the world are paying attention because these young people are either newly eligible to vote now or soon will be and they have no intention of supporting candidates who deny this very serious problem.

    “There was a request to delete five pages of basic science,” he said. “Their argument was that you should not focus on the science of climate change.”

    He was specifically told to delete warnings about climate-linked stress to humans, including drought, flooding, disease, food shortages, mass displacement and migration. A Trump administration official called the analysis “junk science.”
