The Global Climate Strike has begun, and not a moment too soon because the planet is in a bad way. One million species are threatened with extinction and some have already been lost.
Birds are dying in the billions across North America. We are living in an emergency -- and the kids are absolutely not alright. This September, students and adults are joining together in global strikes to demand action on climate change.
If you want to know the what, when and where of the September Global Climate Strikes, we have you covered. It wasn't the first time school kids had walked out of school to demand change, but Thunberg's one-person strike on the steps of parliament drew global attention. On Fridays leading up to the Swedish election, she'd miss class to protest, sign in hand. Thunberg has become the face of the new movement, inspiring students across the world to leave school and demand action on climate change.
In March, students took to the streets in over 2, cities asking adults to take responsibility for the climate crisis. When do we want it?

What do we want? To me this is confusing. I said that this was just the beginning, that we would keep striking, keep taking action and do everything we could to avert this crisis. And today shows that we have followed through with that promise. And we will never back down. By Somini Sengupta.
Teen activist tells protesters demanding action on climate change: 'We need to do this now.'
Anxious about their future on a hotter planet and angry at world leaders for failing to arrest the crisis, masses of young people poured into the streets on every continent on Friday for a day of global climate protests. Organizers estimated the turnout to be around four million in thousands of cities and towns worldwide.
It was the first time that children and young people had demonstrated to demand climate action in so many places and in such numbers around the world. They turned out in force in Berlin, where the police estimated , participants, with similar numbers in Melbourne and London. By the dozens in some places, and by the tens of thousands in others, young people demonstrated in cities like Manila, Kampala and Rio de Janeiro. A group of scientists rallied in Antarctica.
Is that really too much to ask? Nowhere is that more true than in the United States, which has produced more emissions than any country since the start of the industrial age, and which is now rolling back a suite of environmental regulations under President Donald Trump. Organizers said there were demonstrations in all 50 United States. Megan Mullin, a political scientist at Duke University, said that would be crucial.
While it was impossible to determine exactly how many people protested worldwide, a preliminary analysis by The Times found several cities had turnouts in the range of , and many more in the tens of thousands.
