My name is Noah Lorenz and want to do my part in the climate change protest. Instead of protesting I would like to teach you why this protest is happening, who started it and how you can help.
The first thing you should know is why climate change is happening. Climate change is pretty much our world heating up. It is caused by the burning of fossil fuels. When the fossil fuels are burned it releases a gas called Co’2. Co’2 is stopping the heat in the atmosphere, therefore, causing climate change.
This protest was started by a 16-year-old girl called Greta Thunberg. Greta is Swedish and it all started when she started skipping school on Fridays to give out flyers to raise awareness about climate change. She protested in front of the Swedish government buildings. Finally, she managed to make a speech in front of all of the world leaders. She called out kids to make a difference and that started something called #FRIDAYSFORFUTURE. That is why I am here.
The final thing that might help stop climate change is to tell everyone about this. If you didn’t know the Indonesian elections are happening right now. What goes through the mind of a candidate is what will make the people happiest and how popular will it make me. So if you start telling everyone that you prefer renewable energy it might get really popular. But that’s a big if. But if it did happen a candidate might hear and support renewables.
What I want to happen is, I would like it to be like a walk-out with a speech. Everyone would walk out of their classrooms in an organised manner (with teachers) and sit down in the MFH. I would do a speech and put Greta Thunberg’s speech up. I will need a couple of speakers, a microphone, an ipad, and wires.
