Global Climate Strike 9/24/21
The Global Climate Strike happens every year but has been made well known over the past few years via Greta Thunberg & the organization she inspired, Friday's for Future.
The organization has 3 simple goals:
1.) Keep the global temperature rise below 1.5 °C compared to pre-industrial levels.
2.) Ensure climate justice and equity.
3.) Listen to the best united science currently available.
While I personally have severe social anxiety and usually avoid activism, I think the timing of this strike is critical due to it's placement between the recent IPCC report and the upcoming COP26 Summit.
I will be attending the strike in Washing DC but I encourage everyone to make a plan to attend the closest strike to them on September 24th.
