Heating Up: Protests Over Climate Change Happening Worldwide

Millions of young people flooded the streets of cities around the world on Friday says Reuters.

They demand political leaders take urgent steps to stop climate change, uniting in a worldwide protest.

The protest was originally inspired by 16-year-old Swedish activist Greta Thunberg.

The protests started in the Pacific islands, where rising sea levels threaten a way of life.

The coordinated student β€œstrike” culminated in New York’s Wall Street, home of the fossil fuel industry.
