Climate Change Protests – level 1

01-05-2019 07:00

There are protests in London. A group called Extinction Revolution organises the protests. The protests are 1.5 weeks long. Police arrest more than 1,000 people.

The activists say that their protests are working. They are very popular. Politicians know it. The activists want the politicians to make a plan. The plan is to have zero carbon emissions by 2025.

Difficult words: extinction (the dying out of humans/animals/plants), activist (a protester), politician (a ‘leader/boss’ of a country), carbon emissions (the things which get into the air from cars, houses and factories).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
