YOUTH REVOLT! Children Across the USA ‘Walk-Out’ of School to Protest Climate Change

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.20.19

American children joined others across the world Friday in a “global strike” to highlight their concerns over the growing “climate crisis,” claiming the world has just 11 years to reduce carbon emissions or face a planet-wide catastrophe.

“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,” reports USA Today. “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.”

“In Poland, which is heavily reliant on coal, thousands of students turned out to demand more efforts to fight global warning. To mark the day, Poland’s president Andrzej Duda and first lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda helped remove trash from a forest,” adds USA Today.

“.@NYCschools will excuse absences of students participating in the #ClimateStrike on Friday 9/20. Students will need parental consent. Younger students can only leave school with a parent,” posted the school district’s official Twitter account.

“Youth strike advocates Fridays for Future said more than 2400 events were taking place from Sept. 20 through Sept. 27 to coincide with the UN climate summit on Sept. 23, where Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg is due to make an address,” reports Axios.

T MINUS 10: Desperate De Blasio Says Planet Earth Has ’10 Years Left,’ Calls for ‘Climate Strike’

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.13.19

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio doubled-down on his doomsday climate change prediction this week; warning his fellow Americans the planet has just “10 years left” to prevent a global ecological disaster.

“We have ten years to save the planet. TEN YEARS. Today’s leaders are making decisions for our environment that our kids will have to live with. New York City stands with our young people. They’re our conscience. We support the 9/20 #ClimateStrike,” posted De Blasio on social media.

Former Big Apple Mayor Rudy Giuliani slammed De Blasio last week; saying it “Breaks his heart” to see his progressive policies roll-back decades of low-crime and homelessness.

“Homelessness was gone and homelessness should be gone,” Giuliani said. “There’s a way to look at homelessness that these liberals just don’t get. When I see a city with homeless people, I see a city with a mayor who doesn’t give a damn about people, because if you give a damn about people, you don’t let them lay on the street.”

T-MINUS 12: Bernie Says Earth Has ’12 Years' Left Before Climate Apocalypse

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders doubled-down on the Democrats’ ‘Green New Deal’ Friday; telling The View that it’s impossible to go “too far” in combatting climate change and saying the “planet is at stake.”

“I will say that I’m embarrassed that we have a President that refuses to even acknowledge the reality of climate change. In my own personal opinion: If we do not get our act together and take on the fossil fuel industry… the planet that we are going to be leaving our grandchildren will become increasingly unhealthy,” said Sanders.

“The job we have to do is immediately grasp the magnitude of the problem and transform our energy system to change the planet… You cannot go too far on the issue of climate change,” he added. “We have 12 years to begin substantially cutting carbon emissions.”
