There are 4 comments on Everything You Need to Know about Friday’s Youth Climate Strike

  1. So sad that today’s youth are being propagandized in this way, made to believe that they can change the climate of the Earth. And all it will take is for us to hand over our freedom to the government, who will decide our living conditions and we will comply as their subjects. Then, poof, the climate will stop changing. Too bad the dinosaurs weren’t aware of this simple fix.

    1. The science at this point is irrefutable that there will be mass extinction, endemic natural disasters, famine, drought and billions upon billions of property destruction and health consequences. These are already happening. Tropical Depression Imelda is already causing worse damage and more extensive flooding than even Hurricane Harvey to point out one example. The children want a world to live in like everyone else before them was awarded without question and you call them “propagandized?” It’s cowardice at best to ignore the evidence and just lay down and accept the destruction of the only planet we have when we have very real solutions. The activism of the youth on taking their future in their own hands is refreshing and I have hope that humanity will survive.

    2. I find it sad that full grown adults who should know better allow themselves to be propagandized by political ideology and industry lobby. I’ll take the word of peer reviewed science any day over comment trolls, politicians and money hungry businessmen who will take a few short term dollars over the well-being of their own children, grandchildren and the planet.
