Students call for action on climate change

(Cleveland) - Students around the world skipped school today for the Climate Change Day of Action. Students gathered on Public Square in Cleveland to voice their concerns.

Many said adults aren't moved to action because they think they won't be around when the environment gets really bad. Others blame corporate and individual greed for the lack of progress on the issue.

The movement started when Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg sat before her country's parliament last year with signs concerning rising temperatures and natural disasters.

Today's protests could be the largest yet as more than 1,600 events were scheduled in more than 100 countries worldwide.
