#ClimateStrike brings out millions around the world demanding action on climate policies

LatinaLista

What do Ben & Jerry’s, Lush Cosmetics, Kickstarter and SodaStream have in common? Aside from being successful businesses, they are a few of the more than 700 companies that are observing today’s Global Climate Strike.

As of this writing, the strike has ended in much of the world but is still going strong in the United States. Turnout has been phenomenal but the real test is if US leaders take notice and actually:

1. Acknowledge climate change is real.

2. Pass legislation addressing the causes of pollution and environmental harm.

3. Reinstate EPA guidelines.

4. Rejoin the Paris Climate Accord.

5. Enact concrete actions for both businesses and consumers that help the environment.
