Scientists support school strike for climate

In Europe young people take to the streets to demand more climate ambition from their governments. Based on the facts generated by climate science, the activists are quite right. Radical action is required to quickly and drastically reduce greenhouse gasses and prevent climate change to cause major changes on earth.

On the day of the Dutch school strike for climate 350 Dutch scientists publish an open letter in the Dutch newspaper Trouw, titled: "Climate agreement: time for political leadership!"

In their letter the scientists clarify the scientifically established facts that necessitate society to reduce greenhouse gasses and prevent global warming to raise above 1.5 to 2.0 degrees Celsius.
