Global Climate Strike-Eugene Oregon

Video clip from the Global Climate Strike in Eugene Oregon on March 15, 2019.

Video features three youths who are part of the youth climate lawsuit, suing the government for failing to protect their future. This has been ongoing since before the Trump administration, who has been fighting it in court and so far managing to keep the trial from taking place.

These high school students bring the gathering up to date on the status of the lawsuit, asking people to go to www.joinjuliana.org and add their name in support of the Amicus Brief.

Following their brief remarks another speaker, who came to this country from Peru when she was 5 years old, speaks about the air pollution in Lima, and compares the failure of the government in that country to the failure of our government.

Video is seven minutes in length.




These kids have been brainwashed and whipped up into a frenzy by poorly educated, out of date, misinformed or ulterior motivated shills. the facts do not bear out anything that would justify fearful, drastic extreme or sacrificial measures.

Start building your homes and towns on higher elevations. VERY simple solutions like that, are what it takes. If the temps rise by 2 degrees in 100 years, believe me, it will be a seriously good thing for crops, and weather, for everyone in the usa and canada, except the hottest places. If we have a higher level of CO2, it will benefit the flora ( greenery) a great deal, just in time to provide better crops for a growing humanity. ETC )

"Three themes are emerging from the newly released emails: (1) prominent scientists central to the global warming debate are taking measures to conceal rather than disseminate underlying data and discussions; (2) these scientists view global warming as a political "cause" rather than a balanced scientific inquiry and (3) many of these scientists frankly admit to each other that much of the science is weak and dependent on deliberate manipulation of facts and data..... click on link to see article
