Greta Thunberg speaks about climate strike | USA TODAY

Climate activist Greta Thunberg addresses climate change in New York.

Tens of thousands of protesters — from Australia to Thailand to London — joined Global Climate Strike marches and rallies worldwide Friday to express their concern about climate change.

While supporters of all ages are turning out, the day was billed as a walkout by high school students to call on world leaders to step up their efforts against carbon emissions and other environmental issues.

In the U.S., New York City’s 1.1 million school students were excused from class to participate in the strike protests. Demonstrators in Washington, D.C., planned a march to Capitol Hill.

    Stop calling a bunch of lame marches and kids cutting class a “strike”. Everybody can see it’s fake. It’s a precious little show for the media. Probably uses extra fuel, too. Then it’s back to business the next day, and forgotten in a week. It’s exactly the kind of meaningless gesture Saint Greta and her handlers pretend to despise. And if it’s a crisis, if “our house is on fire”, you might eventually need to bring some guns and, I dunno, close down the airports or something. Stop the meat processors. Because people aren’t going to quit their jobs voluntarily to comfort the anxieties of a Swedish brat whose mommy told her too many end-of-the-world lies.

    Gimme a break! She did more damage on her little sailboat than anybody knows. She sailed her dumb ass over then flew a whole crew over to take care of her little boat! Everybody wants to believe the fairytale so badly. She’s just a dub kid igniting the feelings of a bunch of saps who can’t think for themselves.

    Our Students in the US are dumb enough. Our scores have declined every since Democrats have taken ownership of the department of education. Quit playing around with this climate change nonsense and get your ass back to school.

    The climate crisis is going to cause food shortages and make certain countries uninhabitable because of the severe heat. Some will have to seek Asylum in the U.S. You’d think the people who dislike immigration would want to prevent this….

    So let’s not give any credit to the scientists and great people who came before and started the entire conversation for the planet. Let’s talk about a teenager with no idea what life is going to be like. This world has gone to garbage.

    People who fall into her traps or the mass propaganda that elite democrats and mainstream media constantly bombard us with, are totally clueless.
    These leftists and "politically-motivated" scientists are trying to produce fear and promote their special-interest groups, including Vegetarian meat industries and solar-energy industries.
    George Soros and Barack Hussein Obama are the ones behind this recent movement!

    Let this actress be the face of Global warming. It's better than Gore. Gore fondled the ball when he was getting a massage. I know Trump supporting farmers who now believe in Global warming. It goes back to Bush who said he believed but didn't think we could do anything about it. Government should have defunded the scientists at NASA .

    Their private profit world is shaking. Our leaders are drunk on money and power. Greta and around 70% of humanity understand climate change and the complete disconnect between the rich and the poor. It isn't the science that's at issue. What's at issue is why we've let the rulers rule so long when disaster is the inevitable result.
    Our current leadership can only act like deer in the headlight of climate change. The world's big institutions are built on and for private profit. To ask leaders to stop and pay attention is no different than asking them to unlearn what money is and begin to deal with reality. They don't have real answers.
