Ojai teens strike for action on climate

Sixteen-year-old Swedish schoolgirl, Greta Thunberg, asked students worldwide to hold a school strike on Friday, March 15, as part of a Friday for Futures movement to combat global warming. The next worldwide strike is May 24 and Kristofer Young, D.C., of Ojai is hosting it.
Here in Ojai, Thunber’s message was taken to heart by Micaela Ellis, 13, and Bella Mooga, 15, both Lighthouse School of Ojai students, who stood at Libbey Park on March 15 with double-sided, homemade signs reading, “The Oceans are rising and so are we,” and “I’m with her,” referencing their teenage counterpart, Thunberg.
