At least 200 persons gathered in front of Gettysburg College’s Penn Hall Friday morning to join with millions around the world observing global “climate strike” day.

In over 150 countries people were skipping work and cutting classes three days before a United Nations emergency climate summit convenes in New York.

"A vast majority of the “strikers” on the campus lawn were Gettysburg College students." ---'Nuff said. These kids have no clue about what they are complaining and "striking" about. The world is not going to end, and the storms and floods are nothing new. In fact, the UN warned in June 1989 that we would all be gone in 2000, but yet, here we are. Sorry but the idea that natural climate change is man-made and that we can do anything about it is a complete fraud.
