Scotland's school pupils in second mass climate strike

Scotland's school pupils in second mass climate strike

Young Swedish activist Greta Thunberg, a prominent voice in the fight against climate change, has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize this year.

However, we do not feel that the now planned actions to address climate change are sufficient or are being implemented with the necessary urgency. "I applaud you for that", he said.

With little action from the national government, time is running out, and many teens are fearful for both the present and future condition of the climate. "But keep doing everything that you can to bring people with you because we cannot do this alone".

However, when the Listener asked if parents and grandparents should march over climate change inaction, respondents were less enthusiastic, with 28% and 37% respectively saying no, and 32% and 27% saying they were not sure.

"Many people [are losing] their homes and livelihoods".

"We're only striking for one day, but we're going to make a bloody big difference".

The movement started last August, when a 15-year-old girl in Sweden named Greta Thunberg began refusing to go to school and instead demonstrated in front of Sweden's parliament to call attention to climate change after Sweden experienced its hottest summer on record, according to The Guardian.

"Everyone can do their little part of the world, look after it, and the at some stage the world will be handsome again, Meeten said".

Willetton Senior High School student Ryan Hunt, 13, said he was striking to save the world.

"When I saw that (Fridays for Future) was planning to have an inaugural protest in the USA on March 15th, I sent out a message to a few friends to see if they wanted to organize a student strike in Bellingham", Gardner said in an email. Activists say that countries like Germany should fully "decarbonize" by 2040, giving less-advanced nations a bit more time to wean themselves off fossil fuels while still meeting the Paris goal globally.

"Young people are deeply anxious and we want our voices heard".

Blenheim Natural Learners Co-op student Cashel King, 9, said he was encouraged to come to the strike after seeing it advertised on social media, and even made his own sign.

"We're out to look after the planet, because it's the only one we've got", he said.

He said members of the student group have discussed the walkout with school officials.
