"There is an entire generation of young people who are going to inherit the earth. They don't have the ability to make decisions because they're not elected officials now but they have rights to inherit a healthy sustainable planet. And so we need to honor that inheritance and we need to start acting like the planet doesn't belong to a bunch of older adults. The planet really belongs to the next generation and we need to take care of it."

"Working to stop climate change is not something that can only be done. You know the top of the from the top of the country. It can be done with everyone and I think everyone needs to come and realize how they are directly impacting but also look at how they can share the message to others because to fight global climate change it needs, we need impact and support from everyone.

Hundreds of thousands of people took the streets Friday to demand that leaders tackle climate change in the run-up to a U.N. summit.
Many were children who skipped school to take part in the second "Global Climate Strike," following a similar event in March that drew large crowds.
In Atlanta, students and activists rallied outside of the Georgia state capitol, calling for lawmakers to take drastic action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
The protests are partly inspired by the activism of Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg, who has staged weekly demonstrations under the heading "Fridays for Future" over the past year, calling on world leaders to step up their efforts against climate change.
