Popular American singer Billie Eilish has called on her fans all over the world to join the Global Climate Strike scheduled later this month of September ahead of the United Nations emergency climate summit.
On the YouTube description box of her new music video, “all the good girls go to hell,” Billie wrote about the current state of the environment.

“Right now there are millions of people all over the world begging our leaders to pay attention. Our earth is warming up at an unprecedented rate, icecaps are melting, our oceans are rising, our wildlife is being poisoned and our forests are burning,” she said.
She then talked about the global protest that is set to take place on September 20 and 27 where youths from 150 countries will walk out of their schools and workplaces to demand an end to “the age of fossil fuels.” The protest also aims to pressure world leaders convening for the 2019 Climate Action Summit on September 23 to tackle these pressing issues.
“You can make your voice be heard. Take it to the streets,” Billie added.
July 2019 Was the Hottest Month in Human History. Ever. https://t.co/UjX61FLKG2
2018 was the year that we burned the most fossil fuels. EVER.

You can view the strikes planned across the world on the Global Climate Strike’s official website. Currently, there are two events being organized in the Philippines on September 20—one in Katipunan Avenue, Quezon City and another in Mandurriao, Iloilo.
