Tomorrow - Friday 20th September - is the Global Climate Strike, where people strike from schools to protest against the lack of work being done to prevent the climate crisis.
It is estimated that there are only 11 years until the damage to the world is irreversible from climate change, and students are understandingly annoyed and rallying (with peaceful protests) to change world leaders' viewpoints.

Are you taking part in a school/work strike tomorrow?

Find your nearest strike here, and find out more about climate strikes here :grin:

I’m already vegetarian and don’t use a car; there isn’t a great deal more I can do. I do wish the government would take it more seriously though

It's pointless, population needs to decline to save the resources of the planet and other countries need to stop coughing out pollutants but as long as the west outsources their products to places like china that will never happen. But hey as long as we are all using paper straws to drink out starbucks we can all rest easy at night.

I'm rather annoyed by the hysterical element, the 'fad' rebellion style mass activism and the disruptive tactics that 'Church of Environmentalism' adherents employ.

No. I have better things to do than worship St Greta in a square whilst breaking the law.

Only peasants use paper straws personally engraved silver straws are the way forward
