The younger generation has not so subtly pointed out that past generations have done nothing to end the climate crisis. They are right. Among the many things that youth around the world are doing to incite change is this week’s climate strike. You do not have to be young to strike – these are inter-generational protests.There strikes organized all over the United States and the world. In Boulder there are two. There is a march in Denver. And, there’s a march starting at the gates of the White House in Washington D.C. If ever there were a time for action, it is now. Go to one of these sites to find a strike or march near you: strikewithus.org, National Children’s Campaign, 350.org, Zero Hour, Fridays for the Future, Global Climate Strike, or the Sunrise Movement.
To again cite Greta Thunberg, “The one thing we need more than hope is action. Once we start to act, hope is everywhere.”
