Greta Thunberg’s global climate strike reached Santa Barbara this Friday, as hundreds of activists from all walks of life marched the streets in protest against climate change. “When did my future go dark,” one protestor’s sign read; “Why should we go to school if you won’t listen to the education?” another’s asked.
Nexus photographer Siavash Ghadiri captured the urgent energy seen throughout protest – check out his photos below:
What I don’t get is how striking protesting doing any good? Climate Change is global and unless the US and other 1st World Nations step up and enforce law and change in practices that many believe hurts the environment globally, one or two countries doing something isn’t enough. Thus, are we saying that military force might have to be used to force all countries to comply. Could this be the fire the ignites World World III, which we always thought would be due to a lack of resources and not to save the climate?
Unless the population is brought under control, these feel good steps we are taking mean nothing. In SB,Ventura and LA counties the highest birth rate group are Hispanics, according to health dept statistics. Of course, some one will call me racist for citing factual numbers.
