U.S. CLIMATE STRIKE – Friday, September 20, 2019

Wednesday, September 18, 2019 6:46 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

In December 2018, I presented a NoVES platform titled “The Moral Necessity of Geo-Engineering”.  I advocated investigating how we could use technology to reduce global temperature increases as a temporary stop gap while the world moved to minimizing our carbon emissions.

Like many others (excluding the President and Republican members of Congress) I believe that the Climate Crisis poses an existential threat to life on earth as we know it.

    On September 20, three days before the UN Climate Summit in NYC,          young people and adults will strike all across the US and world to                  demand transformative action be taken to address the climate crisis.            Millions of us will take the streets to demand a right to a future, and              we’re inviting you to

It is essential that we start responding to the need to reduce or eliminate human contributions to global temperature increases.

For me, attending a Climate Strike is an important step for me to acknowledge the magnitude of this problem and begin to make changes in my life to do my part.

Together we can become the force to change our consumption and save the planet.
