Climate Activists Unveil Climate Clock in NYC Ahead of Global Climate Strike

HeadlineSep 21, 2020

In other news from New York City, climate activists unveiled a massive Climate Clock, counting down the critical time left for action to prevent the most destructive effects of the climate catastrophe from becoming irreversible. The countdown was revealed on the Metronome in Union Square as Climate Week as well as the U.N. General Assembly kick off. This is Gan Golan, who originated the project.

Gan Golan: “I hope that when people see the clock, it helps them think about what are the things that are most important to them in this world, the things that they love and want to protect and defend from climate catastrophe, because these next seven years are our best shot to do that. And every day, every hour and every second counts.”

This Friday, September 25, the youth-led Global Climate Strike will hold actions in over 2,500 locations around the world.
