I'm very impressed by our local teen climate activists. I've seen Jamie in action, making powerful presentations to the Mountain View City Council and she's an outstanding communicator with an important message . The article doesn't make it super clear that the Sept. 20 event is one that non-students can participate in too. Think of it as more of a "march," like the Women's March, than as a student strike. I graduated from high school in 1970, the year of the first Earth Day, and I plan to be at the march on Sept. 20 in San Jose.

I get a laugh when @low bar bill quotes "consensus" to try to justify global warming alarmism. We've known since Galileo's time that one person can be correct despite the "consensus" of the day. The earth does not revolve around the sun and humans are not causing the planet to become inhabitable.
