Arcata High Students Will Participate in Tomorrow's Global Youth Climate Strike

Anna Taylor, 17, who co-founded the United Kingdom student climate network, said: "Young people in the United Kingdom have shown that we're angry at the lack of government leadership on climate change".

Some friends are "not into it at all", she suspects because they do not want to go out in the cold - the forecast is for hail on Friday.

"It's hard to imagine", she said.

Thousands of school students from Russell to Invercargill are expected to take to the streets today, as part of a worldwide protest against climate change.

Local high school students plan to participate in the Global Youth Climate Strike on Friday, March 15, at 10 am.

The Youth Climate Strike is supporting the Green New Deal, which is a series of proposed environmental policies that recently made headlines after U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., introduced a congressional resolution calling for the country to transition completely to renewable energy. "With our futures at stake, we call for radical legislative action to combat climate change and its countless detrimental effects on the American people".

"Earth is our only home, we only have on", Din said.

"On climate change, we have to acknowledge that we have failed", she told global economic leaders in Davos. "I feel it is so imperative we protect it". We have the right to live our dreams and hopes.

Citing wildfires, droughts, massive storms and refugee flows as signs of what's to come, Din emphasized the urgency she and many of her classmates see in what she called a "climate crisis". I think that change is on the horizon and the people will stand up for their future, Thunberg said in an interview with the Guardian. "Let's take action to raise awareness on Climate Change".

In the same speech, she underscored that climate change is a children's issue since it is her generation that will bear the brunt of the consequences.

"Obviously, this isn't going to happen right off the bat, but it needs to start somewhere", she said.

"But with the help of my friend, Olive Brown, who has been crucial to the planning, the Facebook campaign has gotten more attention than we anticipated".
