Young People Hit the Streets for Global Climate Protest

Young People Hit the Streets for Global Climate Protest Young people protested inaction against climate change on Sept.

20, in major and small cities all over the world.

Protestors carried signs with messages such as “Dead Planet Soon.

Act Now!” and “Make the World Great Again.” Antonia Brüning, 14-year-old protestor, via 'NYT' Mobilized largely on the internet, reports of protests spanned the globe from Europe to Africa to Australia, Asia, the Middle East and the U.S. Joining the protests were doctors, technology workers and scientists.

Though China's greenhouse gas emissions top every other country in the world, the government did not authorize protests.

On Monday, the United Nations will host speeches by world leaders concerning climate change.

Protests are planned for that day as well.

According to reports, the goals of the Paris Climate Accord continue to be far out of reach.
