Lots of of hundreds of younger folks in 123 international locations skipped college Friday to demand stronger local weather insurance policies in what would be the largest environmental protest in world historical past.

(function ($) { var bsaProContainer = $('.bsaProContainer-6'); var number_show_ads = "0"; var number_hide_ads = "0"; if ( number_show_ads > 0 ) { setTimeout(function () { bsaProContainer.fadeIn(); }, number_show_ads * 1000); } if ( number_hide_ads > 0 ) { setTimeout(function () { bsaProContainer.fadeOut(); }, number_hide_ads * 1000); } })(jQuery);
