Missoula Students Holds Climate Strike
Students in Missoula, MT walked out of school on Friday, September 20th to attend a Climate Strike. They weren't the only people striking. Over 100 countries had students walk out to strike against climate change.
The movement was started by Greta Thunberg, who is known for speaking out against climate change in the past year. Thunberg has made airwaves by skipping class to draw attention to the climate and strike against it. "Education is important," Thunberg said. "But striking against the climate is importanter." Thunberg's actions have caused many students to put education aside to stand up to the climate.
In a shocking revelation, the Earth's climate responded late Friday afternoon. An official statement was release.
"I understand that you don't like climate change. Unfortunately it's something I've been doing for millions of years now. I apologize for any inconvenience it may have caused you. I'll cease all climate change immediately, in hopes that you'll go back to school and get some semblance of an education. Please don't use me as an excuse to skip school. Starting tomorrow, the climate will stop changing. Please accept my sincerest apologies. I didn't mean to hurt or scare anyone. I hope that you all made your signs from recycled material, took your pictures with cameras made from anything other than plastic with batteries that didn't have nickel in them, and wore clothes that were made from your own hair. I would hate for anyone to look hypocritical while striking against climate change and waste products while wearing and using anything that wasn't naturally sourced and produces no waste or toxins in the environment. Remember, the factories that your Patagonia jackets are made in produces smog and makes synthetic materials."
The statement hit the AP and was spread worldwide within hours. Luckily for the rest of mankind, these kids were smart enough to live a life that has zero impact on the Earth, thus making the Earth happy enough to stop changing the climate.
More on this as it develops.
