Prominent Democrats, including Al Gore and Hillary Clinton, are encouraging kids to ditch school to protest climate change.
Climate strikes are inspired by 16-year-old Swedish girl Greta Thunberg who warned of civilizational collapse at the U.N. in 2018.

Strikers are claiming we only have 11 years left to get climate change under control, based on media narrative and not science.
Democratic politicians are encouraging thousands of children to skip school to demand politicians do something about global warming, including passing the Green New Deal.

“[S]tudents are fighting like their world depends on it,” former Vice President Al Gore said in a tweet extolling Haven Coleman, a 12-year-old listed as the U.S. climate strike’s co-founder and co-director.
“I stand with all students striking here in Atlanta and across world today,” Gore tweeted Friday as thousands of students skipped school to protest climate change.

Student strikes were inspired by 16-year-old Greta Thunberg, who began ditching school in August to sit in protest outside the Swedish parliament. Thunberg told the United Nations in December that “civilization is being sacrificed” by adults who were “stealing” their children’s futures by not immediately shedding fossil fuels.
Tens of thousands of students have since skipped school to demand politicians immediately address global warming. U.S. strikers are demanding Congress pass the Green New Deal resolution introduced by New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Backed by well-funded environmental groups, youth strikers are protesting “for the Green New Deal, for a fair and just transition to a 100% renewable economy, and for ending the creation of additional fossil fuel infrastructure,” according to the Youth Climate Strike website.
Ocasio-Cortez, activists and politicians have claimed humanity has less than 12 years to cut emissions and avert catastrophic global warming — a message they only amplified as students took to the streets Friday.
