That stark photo of Greta Thunberg's solitary, obstinate climate strike was a mere year ago. This week, four million people joined her in the largest climate strike ever to declare, "L ike the sea, we rise ." Greta's rhetoric is hard-core: She told Dems lauding her to "save your praise...Don’t (tell) us how inspiring we are without doing anything about it," and told global leaders, "I don't want your hope, I want you to panic." We're all good on panic thanks, but we'll take the hope too.
"Young people, workers, communities at the frontlines of the #ClimateEmergency are taking it to the streets. They tell E.U. leaders that they must increase weak climate targets now."
"Basically, nothing is being done to halt this crisis despite all the beautiful...
"Young people should not be underestimated—we have a voice and we are strong."
