Students across the country walked out of school and into the streets today to demand that the adults running the government start fighting back against climate change. The strikers joined a worldwide movement of young activists who are fighting for a future on a habitable Earth.
The catalyst of the strikes is 16-year-old Greta Thunberg, a student in Sweden whose climate protests in lieu of classes just earned her a nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Tomorrow we school strike for the climate in 1769 places in 112 countries around the world. And counting.
