Montreal Climate Strike - 2019

Yesterday I documented some of yesterday's climate strike in Montreal where estimates say that between 300,000-500,000 people came out to protest against climate change. Melting land glaciers are causing sea levels to rise, threatening the safety of coastal cities and the viability of living on islands in the North Pacific in the future. Climate change will increase the frequency of floods, droughts, and other extreme weather globally, which will threaten the global food supply.

For anyone still unsure about whether climate change is really a thing, I would recommend reading, and taking seriously the reports made by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, it’s a special group made for the express purpose of gathering the world’s leading scientists from countries all around the world to make scientifically assess the severity of and consequences of climate change. 

For their Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate, they gathered 104 scientists from over 30 countries and referenced exactly 6,981 scientific publications in their final draft.
