SYDNEY - Thousands of people in Asia and Europe took part in rallies Friday, demanding more action on climate change. Protesters urged world leaders to frame solutions at a U.N. conference next week.
The global rallies started in Australia, where there was anger and defiance as thousands of students walked out of classes to demand stronger action on climate change, which they blamed for making the country's bushfire crisis worse.
In November, parts of eastern Australia were hit by an unprecedented fire emergency. Six people died and hundreds of homes were destroyed. Dozens of blazes continue to burn.
Scientists are warning that global warming is making Australia's annual bushfire season longer and more extreme. Teenage protesters in Sydney said the threat is there for all to see.
