Climate Activist Claims Victory Over Weather As America Awakens To Seasonal Temperatures
Young people from across the country staged a strike of sorts on Friday to protest environmental disaster brought on by climate change. Conservatives attacked the strike, which seemed more like a bunch of kids playing hooky and participating in a pep rally. Republicans called the group “Liberals” with a “faux science agenda.”
That was yesterday!
This morning Americans awoke to mostly clear skies with temperatures that look to welcome a beautiful Fall season. It was 65 degrees near Nashville, where only 60 hours earlier it had been in the upper 90s.
It all started when kid activist Greta Thunberg testified before the United States Congress that the world was about to end. “I didn’t think I was getting through. The committee members were just looking at me like I’m a child. But obviously I championed through and things happened. Two days later there were hundreds of other climate kids protesting the end of the earth. And now… just look outside. It is beautiful. Of course, we still have some work to do to stop hurricanes, flooding, wildfires, blizzards, droughts, tornadoes, lightning, rain, clouds, wind, cold, and heat. But I think this mild Saturday is definitely a huge victory.”
Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders cheered the victory by wishing the climate activist tots safe travels. “I want to thank the kiddos for coming out and restoring nice weather. Be safe as you wake up in huge air conditioned corporation-owned hotels, eat breakfast fruit shipped in from climate victims South America, request an Uber SUV to take you to a capitalist-owned jumbo jet, and fly across the country back to your fossil fueled houses.”
Schools across America did not report any absences due to the strike. But coffee shops and blogging basements around the country were quite empty during the protest.
