"Hundreds of thousands of students around the world walked out of their schools and colleges Friday in the latest in a series of strikes urging action to address the climate crisis.

"According to event organizers Fridays for Future, over 1664 cities across 125 countries registered strike actions, with more expected to report turnouts in the coming days."

"Why are kids striking?

"School children are required to attend school. But with the worsening Climate Destruction this goal of going to school begins to be pointless.
"- Why study for a future, which may not be there?
"- Why spend a lot of effort to become educated, when our governments are not listening to the educated?"

Silly. Go to school and eventually figure out productive ways to fix the issue rather than skiving off.

Once these students start having to pay for all ineffective solutions to so-called AGW they will come back to  reality.
