Tauranga students ditch school to join global climate strike

The Swedish 16-year-old is an inspirational yet unlikely leader of weekly school strikes that have gained momentum worldwide.

The New Jersey students have formed a coalition called the NJ Youth Climate Strike to organize its efforts.

"We are not doing this just because we want to but because we have to in order to protect our right to a future on this planet. Our future!", could be seen marching through the Wellington CBD as they headed towards Parliament, joining over 90 different countries in calling out government inaction over the impact of climate change on future generations. "They are absolutely correct that our actions today will determine their futures", said Anne Hidalgo, the mayor of Paris and chair of the C40 group of cities, according to The Guardian. But even after the elections were over, her protests continued. She has asked world leaders not to ignore the impending consequences of runaway climate change.

She soon gained a large following on social media for her work, and the movement she started spread to other countries across Europe and around the world.

We are certain that Greta would rather have government action on the sixth mass extinction than the Nobel Peace Prize should they win.

"We have proposed Greta Thunberg because if we do nothing to halt climate change it will be the cause of wars, conflict, and refugees", Norwegian politician Freddy André Øvstegård told worldwide news agency AFP.

"We have nominated Greta because the climate threat may be one of the most important causes of war and conflict".

After the news of her nomination broke, Thunberg took to Twitter to say she was "honoured and very grateful for this nomination".

"I think we have reached a tipping point where enough scientists are telling it like it is and not being so afraid of being alarmist", Thunberg told New Scientist on Wednesday, adding it's been frustrating that many people are paying more attention to her age than the issue at hand.
