Global Climate Strike

On September 20th millions of young people and environmental advocates took to the streets to protest global warming and greenhouse gas emissions. Estimated at four million people, in thousands of cities and towns, anxious people protested the lack of legitimate change from government. In Ann Arbor, hundreds of protesters flooded the streets with posters, music, and excitment. Are these protests legitimately helping cause change? Is there any other way in which people can help the planet? What are other good steps of action for demonstraters looking to instill change?
