On Friday people are planning to walk out of class, offices, and homes to draw attention to the ‘climate crisis.’ Oklahomans and Tulsans will participate in what is being called a global climate strike. Michael Koster with ‘Tulsa Talks Climate’ says young people are the driving force. The strike is related to the ‘Fridays for Future’ movement, started by a Swedish teenager.

Hundreds are expected to participate in Tulsa, and several thousand across the state of Oklahoma. More than 100 countries are expected to take part in the walkout. A rally will be held in downtown Tulsa at noon Friday.
