    Students around the world go on strike protesting climate change

    In a global show of solidarity, students all over the world have gone on strike today to get world leaders to do more about climate change. This is the coming generation, and they feel that the older generations are betraying them and letting them down. They are not going to be in school. Their teachers, as well as the mayors of their cities are supporting them. Greta Thunberg, the young Swedish student who testified in the US congress recently, has become their idol. Whereas before the teen hairstyle rage all over the world was to try to look like Ariana Grande, now all the rage is having hair that looks like Greta's.

    Here is live coverage of these protests as they are unfolding all over the world:

    Meanwhile, back here in the US, the Republican Party remains the only party in the developed world that denies climate change (not to mention having a large part of its base still thinking the Earth is only 6000 years old and trickle down economics works).

    The US is not a world leader anymore.

    Greta is becoming a modern day Joan of Arc.

    Are we suppose to believe taking a day off from school is some big sacrifice on their part.

    Why not do something that would actually counter climate change like turning off the airconditoners for the entire school year. Of course that wont happen because that would be an inconvenience for them. Something like that i would respect. Giving yourself a day off from school... not so much.

    I’m sure the right wing, science denying old fogies will be along shortly to take a dump on these kids heads when these kids are actually standing for something real and important, while they stand behind a giant orange moron who craps lies into their ears daily as they cheer him on.

    Yes. We should not take the future of the next generation seriously until they set themselves on fire in the streets.

    How does that make the concerns of the students any less valid?
