Climate song "Do it now"" (Istanbul version)

A song being sung around the world, and especially fitting for tomorrow’s global climate strike, is “Do it now.” Another wonderful version I came across today is this one from Turkey.

Sing for the climate. “Do it now”  Turkey (Istanbul CEVRE College)

Inslee response to Global Climate Strike walkout

Gov. Jay Inslee responded to the Global Climate Strike that will take place Friday, September 20 when a number of students are expected to miss school.

“I encourage educators to embrace Friday’s Global Climate Strike as part of a strong civic education for young people. The youth of today will inherit the planet of tomorrow. The cataclysmic impact of climate change will impact them more than any generation before them.

“If I had the authority to excuse students from school to participate in this Global Climate Strike, I would grant it. But I don’t. However, I support their engagement and activism on this crucial issue. Their future is the one truly at stake. Moments like this in our environmental history will define us and will reverberate for generations. I commend the youth in our state and across the country standing up for their future."
