you might smile, you might find you cute. However, adults, the passing of such a young Streikzug, feeling above all: shame. Because the future belongs to these young people actually. And you feel betrayed. "The oceans are going to lift, and now we rise", to call the students to the politicians. Are you frustrated. Of the policy of the adult, by the inaction of many on climate issues.
Only 12 more years, irreversible damage is caused to prevent
How this movement, which has the force developed within the shortest possible time, is impressive. The climate students are technically well-versed, multi-lingual and international. You organize quickly and intuitively driven by an inner urgency, and from the associations when their members can only dream of. The strikers maintain a disciplined language, act democratically, without any kind of hierarchy and bundles with of its movement, a dense and deep Knowledge about what is happening with the climate.
you know the latest report of the intergovernmental panel on climate change. You know that only 12 more years left to prevent global warming to 1.5 degrees, and thus irreversible ecological damage.
