Thousands of people marches through the streets of lower Manhattan.

While the coronavirus pandemic has been a tragedy for people all around the world, there is a silver lining: the Earth’s conditions have improved. For example, there are reports that global carbon dioxide emissions are almost as low as levels seen 10 years ago. News like this would certainly make climate and environmental activists both around the world and in our own school very happy. After all, much of the Bronx Science community has taken part in recent climate strikes and some have even lead these marches and protests. As such, it’s worth it to look back on the biggest climate strike that was held on September 20th, 2019 in which it was estimated to have about 250,000 attendees in New York City alone.
