A little more than a year after 16-year-old Greta Thunberg began her lone school strike outside Swedish parliament, millions of protesters joined her on Friday, pouring into the streets of cities all over the globe to emphasize the urgency of acting to address the climate crisis. The strikes are timed to send a message to world leaders who are scheduled to meet in New York on Monday for the United Nations Climate Summit. The strike is anticipated to be the largest global action on climate in the planet’s history. Thunberg, who sailed to the U.S. earlier this month, is leading the New York strike.  

Images have been pouring out of social media showing massive crowds, from Paris to Islamabad, Dublin to Boston, New York to Cape Town:
