University of Alabama Students Join the Fight Against Climate Change
Today millions of people across the world are participating in the Global Climate change Strike. Nearly a hundred UA students crowded around the steps of Denny Chimes with posters in hand that read things like respect your mother, our planet matters and Business as usual equals death.
Natalie Miller is a student and the Director of Sustainability in Greek life, dining and dorms. She says it is good to see so many people show up for the strike.
“So it’s really exciting that they all came out to support because it’s something that we all share and have in common. And it it’s the earth. And we really want the earth to be around for our children and for us and for all the animals that don’t have a say.”
UA’s Environmental council hosted the strike and created a list of actions they would like to see out of this strike that include Alabama officials declaring a climate emergency.
