Fridays for Future school strike in Berlin : climate protection: Even more decisive and faster to act

An alarm message to the other employs many of the citizens of Berlin, and others displace it for self-protection. Nasa speaks of "disturbing" melting cavities beneath Antarctic glaciers, in the Himalayas, far more ice is melted as a freshwater storage than I thought. For the German Islands, where many locals do with their families fond of holidays, rise in the forecasts for sea level is staggering, as the Lübecker Nachrichten reported on the example of the Baltic sea island of Fehmarn.

The graphic shows the average projection, according to the Alfred-Wegener-Institute (AWI) for the near future of the popular Berlin holiday island, according to 80 centimeters of sea rise in 80 years, to be realistic, storm surges can accumulate on a Meter. 160 centimeters are possible, although - so far - is less likely. If you would like to check other places in the world such as the North sea coast or the Maldives: in the fire tree or Surging Seas.

Luisa Neubauer, organizing "Fridays for Future in Berlin". The forecasts for the world in the future, not depressing?

We make more, now. The problems are known, there are new data – this only shows that we need to act more decisively and faster. For us, the Coal phase-out by 2038 is not an Option, we call it by 2030 at the latest. Everything else is not equal to the crisis reality, that is a gift to the industry.

Why to Uni and school times demonstrated? In the afternoon, could also run for parents and educators.

The force with which we have been catapulted into the climate of political discourse, confirms the approach: First, by the fact that we are resorting to "drastic" measures, we will be heard so prominently. It is not a question of skipping School, but about the great urgency to act now, by all means.

what is the response of the schools, have gotten many students in Trouble?

so Far, it works surprisingly well. For example, regulations are made that things can be made up from the missed classes.

cabbage is one – where you talking about the adult to the Conscience?

Again: The planned reductions in coal-fired power generation by 2022, are a pitiful proposal, more than double that would be needed to achieve the climate targets for 2020. This is absurd, especially as we export our dirty coal power abroad. The only ones who benefit are the mega-corporations. But also other sectors such as agriculture, Transport and Housing need to be addressed.

How was "Fridays for Future"?

On Friday, 15. February, have already demonstrated a 1000 young people in the disability Park in the middle of the Federal Ministry of the economy, there will always be more. In Germany, there are already 155 local chapters, nationwide to 30,000 pupils, students, apprentices were today, for a future worth living without Floods, droughts, extreme weather, polar ice caps melt, to strike and demonstrate. With climate activists around the world, we call on 15. March to the International climate strike. We are not watching the same irresponsibility that has brought us to this crisis, also destroyed our future prospects.
