Skeptical Science to join the Global Climate Strike on September 20!

Posted on 18 September 2019 by BaerbelW

By now, many of you will already be aware that a big week of climate action kicks off on Friday, September 20 with a Global Climate Strike. Skeptical Science will join the digital version of the strike which is why we added a special - and closable - footer pointing to more information to our homepage.


Come September 20, the footer will be replaced by a full screen overlay. However, as we expect many attacks from the usual suspects to coincide with the week of action, we‘ll not switch off Skeptical Science completely and the overlay can be closed to keep all our content readily available should any debunkings become necessary. Frankly, we‘d be quite surprised if this were not needed!


If you have a website or blog, how about joining the Digital Global Climate Strike? Find all the information and resources you need here.

Will you join the strike on the ground somewhere? If yes, please share in the comments where you participated!
