More than 70 people — from Chester and surrounding areas and from students to retirees  — joined Friday’s Global Climate Strike to end the demand for fossil fuels and promote a clean environment to address the climate crisis.

The midday protest took place under warm blue skies.

The group gathered on the Chester Green to listen as a number of high school students and others spoke of their concerns about the future under severe climate change. State Rep. Sarah Copeland-Hanzas of Bradford, co-chair of the VT Climate Solutions Caucus, also spoke before the protesters marched east along Main Street and up to Town Hall.

The local effort was organized by Mountain Valley Climate Action 350VT which is based in Chester and has members throughout the area. Its mission is to “reverse human caused climate change, to preserve a habitable Earth.”

    Good description of the scientific method. Fortunately that is what scientists have used in the work they’ve done investigating climate change, and that’s why most scientists, including myself, concur with the findings of NOAA, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration of the U.S. government and the IPCC, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. https://www.climate.gov/ and https://www.ipcc.ch/ You can look at the scientific data and read the scientific research on both of those websites.
    This is why 97-98% of scientists know that climate change is occurring and that it is caused by human behavior, and why we know the things that can be done to prevent the worst damage.

  2. Real Clear Science requires constant inquiry. The people promoting radical political climate change activism insist the debate is closed. This is not real science.

    This is the scientific method. The scientific method has five basic steps, plus one feedback step:
    1.Make an observation.
    2.Ask a question.
    3.Form a hypothesis, or testable explanation.
    4.Make a prediction based on the hypothesis.
    5.Test the prediction.
    6.Iterate: use the results to make new hypotheses or predictions.
    The feedback stage is essential. Please share this video with your family and friends. The people promoting climate change activism insist the debate is closed. This is not real science. Please share this video with your friends and family.
