Climate strike / march Friday at 8am

Thursday, September 19, 2019

On September 20, 2019 three days before the UN Climate Summit in New York City, young people and adults will strike all across the US and world to demand transformative action be taken to address the climate crisis. Millions will take the streets to demand a right to a future.

Shoreline "Shore to Shore" climate strike / march on Friday, September 20, 2019 begins at 8am at Log Boom Park in Kenmore. 17415 61st Ave NE, Kenmore 98028

Participants will march to Richmond Beach Saltwater Park 2021 NW 190th St, Shoreline 98177. The full march is about eight miles. People are invited to join at any point along the route and are encouraged to bring signs.

At least one school is asking parents to call in to the school if their student will be participating in the morning march.

Students across the world have been leading the way in calling for action on climate change, feeling that it is their future which is being lost, while leaders fail to act.

I am sure this activity will lower the planet's temperature by at least two degrees. Good work all!

What climate crisis? It's made up for political expediency. Creating a crisis allows people to become lemmings. By the way, if this 'protest' was on a Saturday morning, no students would care.

Oh my goodness the cynicism! Most scientists - not politicians - agree we have a crisis on our hands. Just as with the school shooting crisis - students across the cpuntry have a lot to say. A walkout like this one is easier to arrange and more likely to draw attention - don't we want the next generation to exercise their freedom to stand up for what they believe in? What are you doing to help the world be a better place? If all you can do is make snide remarks, how is that productive?

Get your head out of the sand. Doug. If you garden, fish, travel, spend time outdoors you know the weather is changing.
Even my MIL is convinced after last storm. She grew up in the midwest where electric storms were common. She had never seen such weather in her 60+ years here.

On behalf of my daughter, and all the others that are paying attention...yes...THANK YOU for posting the event (science is a core subject and it deserves our respect & support).
