“Living in a Horror Movie and The Global Climate Strike”
Tune into “Be Bold America!” Sunday, September 15 at 5:00pm
The horror movie has begun. Global fire. Oceans rising. Pestilence. The movie is getting more frightening every minute. Will it have a good ending? What part can our American democracy play? Will it be the courageous hero who fights the scary monster head on or will it play the monster who gruesomely will destroy civilization?
Organizers and participants of the upcoming “Global Climate Strike,” to be held the week of September 20-27, 2019, are mobilizing to inspire elected politicians and policy makers to metamorphize into courageous and bold heroes who fight the horror movie villain … planetary climate breakdown. Be a bold hero and participate in one, or all, of over a dozen local Climate Strike events (https://scruzclimate.org).
