You may have heard of the trans-Atlantic boat trip taken by Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg in recent weeks aboard a zero emission sail boat. The teen age activist who launched worldwide school strikes last year is back to do it again this year. With July of 2019 now the hottest month on record for the world, it is readily apparent that world saving work is out there to be done.
Most of the school strikes this year are scheduled on September 20th. Iowa does not have any school strikes for the climate scheduled based on the website set up for this round of strikes.
The closest strikes to Iowa are in Omaha, Nebraska, Chicago, Illinois and Morris, Mn. Climate change is an existential crisis.
