Crowds of children jammed the streets of major cities Friday in a global show of force to demand action on climate change, with many young people skipping school in protest and sharing a unified message aimed at world leaders.
"No matter how many times they try to ignore the issue, you can see every teenager in the area is here," said Isha Venturi, a 15-year-old high school sophomore from New Jersey who was in New York's lower Manhattan for the "Global Climate Strike."
"We're not quiet anymore, and change is coming," added Venturi, who was joined by her parents.
In New York, the day was punctuated by children-led marches, dance circles and handmade signs that read, "If the world was cool we would be in school." Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg, who started the climate strike movement as a weekly demonstration in August 2018, addressed demonstrators in Manhattan later Friday. Organizers estimated about 100,000 people were in attendance.

Is this another case of schools using kids as numbers...let them get out of class for a walk... Knowing and caring nothing about the reason why?
The left regularly abuses children. Very sad times.

I am copying your list and printing it to give to a few of my liberal relatives............it is priceless!
It’s from the links at the bottom... plus the links give all the historical backup information... It’s a treasure trove all right - pass it around.
You are so right.
Thanks again - yes the linked info is perfect.
I plan to - pass it around.
It needs to be broadcast far and wide.
They need to take their message and protests to China and India.
Nicely done! And I bet you could find 100 more.
You are right - but the link:
Gives the backup articles that are cited in the list.
I plan to send the links to my relatives along with the list.
I was in college when the dire predictions about the “coming Ice Age” were going around. A Professor at UNC stated this quite clearly and openly. So I am an eyewitness to at least some of these idiotic predictions.
The Left hates him anyway, but there will be many young people who have never even heard the other side, and will be shocked to be shown the facts.
Excellent list. I also like this site (thanks to another FReeper);
Most are so indoc’d they wouldn’t/won’t pay attention to anything he presents.
Need to send that idea to the top....
Ilhan Omars Daughter Is Leading the Youth Climate Strike
Isra Hirsi, a 16-year-old activist whos also the daughter of Minnesota congresswoman Ilhan Omar.
I think you should put in Oral Roberts’ 1980 900 foot Jesus prediction. It wasn’t about climate but the sort of people who go along with Climatology hate being lumped in with smarmy televangelists.
And not a single protest against Communist China or India, who by far are the worlds biggest polluters. Instead of cutting back on pollution, they are allowed to increase pollution until 2030.
Its just a ruse to screw the West and Japan and let China and India be the worlds economic superpowers.
