In 100 days exactly, we will strike again. On April 22, the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, young people and adults across the United States will once again take to the streets to demand climate action. Earth Day will launch three consecutive days of massive strikes, fulfilling our promise to take the climate strike movement beyond what we achieved on September 20.
Inaction is not an option. This has been the hottest decade on record and last year was the second hottest ever. Since the bushfire season began in November, fires in Australia have killed 25 people, wiped out over a billion animals, and blanketed cities across the country with historic levels of air pollution. Since 2020 began, thirteen days ago, floods in Indonesia have killed more than 66 people and displaced 400,000 more. These are the signals of climate change the crisis is here.
We have had enough of the inaction of government and business leaders. Now is our time to come together and be unified in our demand for change. On September 20, 2019, over 650,000 people across the United States, and 4 million worldwide, participated in the largest youth-led climate mobilization the world has ever seen. Over 1,300 locations across the country left school and work, with NYC and Boston school districts permitting students to be excused from school to attend, and hundreds of businesses publicly supporting us.

No, hell no.
I predict the equivalent of a fart, a mild quiet fart. MTV? It still exists?
STRIKING FROM WHAT forgawdssake??!
I am. I’m going to open all of the doors and windows of my house and run the AC/heating system. I’m going to cook a steak over charcoal and drink carbonated beverages through a plastic straw.
I will be striking... a match and tossing it into the grill in the back yard.
I’m going for a loud egg induced one of those.
Good for you, but I don’t think that is what these clowns had in mind.
No thanks, I will be using all the fossil fuels I can that day.
Oh sheesh....does this mean the kiddies will be let out of schools and colleges in order to give the appearance there are hundreds in the streets?
Let them complain to China and India. Weve done enough. Catalytic converters, unleaded gas, computers running our cars, insulated buildings, LED lighting, yada yada yada... They have nothing to complain about here. Nothing. They are just virtue signaling and seeking attention. Freakin snowflakes!
I’m gonna strike. I’m going to REFUSE TO WEAR THE RIBBON OF IGNORANCE AND DECEPTION.
[STRIKING FROM WHAT forgawdssake??!]
They wont be broadcasting “Teen Mom”...
72 hours? Heck, Grace Kelly was striking for 52 YEARS.
Earth Day. Are they still doing that?
How much u payin’? I can be bought.
I too may be releasing trapped carbon and trying rid the planet of cows, one at a time. I may be doing that this coming weekend if the weather holds.
MTV telling people that inaction is not an option. They wouldnt have a channel if not for inaction.
