“As students we don’t have the vote, and it is really unfair because this is going to impact on us the most. It is our future,”
Evie Baldwin, 15, from north London

Thousands of young people take time out of school to join protests across the country

Some wore school uniform, with ties askew in St Trinian’s fashion, others donned face paint, sparkly jackets and DM boots. The youngest clutched a parent’s hand as people gathered in the sunshine in Parliament Square in London, a few metres from the politicians they say are letting down a generation.

They carried homemade placards, with slogans full of humour, passion and hope that the voices of thousands of children and young people would be heard.

“March now – or swim later”, “I’ve seen smarter cabinets in Ikea” and “denial is not a policy” read the banners, as chants for action on climate change grew and strengthened with the passing hours into a deafening roar. “What do we want? Climate action! When do we want it? Now!”

Across the UK it was a day for thousands who are not normally heard, as children took time out of their lessons to attend the strike.

Greta Thunberg is a smart kid. A descendant of a top scientist and climate change activist.  She started this school-skipping movement. Whether or not you agree with her politics she's certainly very driven, gotta give her that.

I agree! And I love to see these young adults making a stand. It gives me hope.

No doubt some of these kids know what they are talking about, but most are just taking advantage of the chance to skip school.

And if you were to press them an some questions they would sound like a Miss America contestant talking about how she is opposed to world hunger.

No doubt many of these kids think climate change is going to kill us in a few years.  There are alarmist adults saying the same thing.  

I also know that getting out of class and hanging with classmates at a protest is a hell of a lot more fun than doing algebra or reading Shakespeare.

I dont think that is what some of these kids in the know and parents are saying at all.

I imagine they are rightly saying. That if we do not act. Then the world will reach a turning point, we then cannot control. One which will in time bring untold death and suffering to the world.

I mean when people warned of Hitler. Were they being alarmists or realists?

I would say they are the ones being realistic then, just as people are realistic about the man made effects we are having on climate change

I think climate change and immigration need to be addressed, but the fear of climate change and immigrants is way overblown.  

Fear is ine of the most commonly used tools of politicians. It's how they motivate people. Facts are not nearly as effective.

How is it overblown?

Both actually will go hand in hand in the future, if again we do not act.

As what do you think will happen in areas, that become unihabitable?

Areas that become below sea level?

The effects of this are already happenning year on year

I mean we have already seen hundreds of thousands of immigrants because of climate change. Which will bring about more conflicts as well when nations suffer months and months of drought.

The number of immigrants will turn into tens of millions because of climate change

All roads and doors lead to climate change

Climate change is a natural cycle, yet this is not a cycle and is being brought up by the actions of humans

People like yourself, again ignore science

What is needed, for a start is not to listen to unscientiific people like yourslef. Who will when its too late, then come to realise what a complete idiot you are

As what do you think will happen in areas, that become unihabitable?

Areas that become below sea level?

The effects of this are already happenning year on year

I mean we have already seen hundreds of thousands of immigrants because of climate change. Which will bring about more conflicts as well when nations suffer months and months of drought.

The number of immigrants will turn into tens of millions because of climate change

All roads and doors lead to climate change

none of that matters because according to leading democrats in amercia the world will end in 12 years.

Many people have predicted the worlds end

Here we know that tempretures are rising and its all down to humans

Fear is ine of the most commonly used tools of politicians. It's how they motivate people. Facts are not nearly as effective.

How is it overblown?

Both actually will go hand in hand in the future, if again we do not act.

These kids believe they are going to die.  

They will live longer than their parents.  

Immigrants are fleeing shitty government,  like they always have.  

We can be good stewards of the planet without all of the Henny Penny bullshit.

It is a possiblity they could, based on whether the world acts or not for the future

The likley prediction based on current trend, is around 2100

You think immigrants fleeing climate disasters in Bangladesh is down to shitty governements?

You still cannot grasp it can you?

Whenm the world suffers bigger flooding and worst droughts. The later meaning people lack water. What do you think is going to happen?

People have always fought over resources and that is exactly what will happen, when people dont have a basic one in water or food. When their crops fail. The previous year South Africa suffered one of the worst droughts in history

The reality I say to climate deniers, even though you are not is this.

In all the worst cycles of climate change in the past, what happened?

mas extinction

Except this time, we will be the cause of that

I'd just rather believe the experts, and let the alt.right go among their own and stir up fake beliefs.  When they drop into the sink-hole beneath their beliefs, we can look back and laugh.

Meanwhile, as soon as leftist take over in America, we will declare a national emergency and order controls to curtail climate change.

We will be fine.  

We are getting cleaner, and cleaner with our energy uses.  

I'm tired of politicians trying to scare me about climate change, immigration, guns, crime or drugs in an attempt to use that fear to stay in power.  

If there isn't something to fear, some sort of enemy they are saving us from, they will create one.

Its not politicians

If it was, they would have acted by now. Some have brought about half measures, but its not enough

The possible scenarios are coming from many climate scientists

So on that factor you are again wrong

We know the climate can does bring devastation to the planet and each year we are seeing more and more disasters due to cglobal warming

Its hardly a coincidence is it?

I know as much about climatology as a policitican and the use of fear doesn't discriminate by party.

You mean realism about climate change?

I dont think the new proposal by Cortez, would make any difference, based on the need of electricity with trains

Why not listen to people who are experts then

This is one even smelly can relate to. She is an evangical Christian and a climate scientist

Yes. Let's listen to experts. I doubt these kids in this story have done that.  They are being frightened by politicians and other non experts.

Are they? Or are they in the one place, where they are being taught about the world through science?

School

It was not Politicians that got through to these children, but another child actually looking into this problem
