Young people from more than 150- countries skipped school today as part of global climate protests...urging world leaders to act more aggressively to combat climate change.

One of those protests was at the state capitol in frankfort.

Abc 36's christy bollinger takes you there, in our top story at 6.

'protestors in kentucky came out for the global climate strike and as you can see they're wearing a bunch of red and black now this is to stand in solidarity with those around the globe holding strikes of their own."

"we need climate action now."

Students demanding action..

"we need to do something."

That something these students and other protestors want... a green new deal, land resoration, environmental justice..

A transition to sustainable energy.

"my goal is to reduce the use of fossil fuel to half by 2030 and to completely eliminate the use by 2035 and i also want to have zero carbon emissions by 2050."

16 year old junior from franklin county high, natalie dufour comes by this honestly...her mom is an enviornmental activist.

"climate change is killing our planet.

So many animals are dying because the climate is warmng up."

Dufour was only one student, of dozens the district allowed to be at the strike..

During school hours.

"if kids need to have their voices heard we're gonna find a way to make that happen i mean that's education in action and we have to be able to put our money where our mouth is so to speak."

Franklin county schools superintendent mark kopp says it wasn't so much the topic...but the students passion about it that inspired him.

"to them this is a really important issue and they're letting their voices be heard and i love every second of it i'm so very proud of them."

The district even provided transportation to the capitol.

"it's amazing to be a part of something this big."

"so many people care about this issue and it shows we can do something big."

And this...was a big start.

They had five of us instead.

C1 3 running attack was supposed to be a three-headed snake between a-j rose, kavosiey smoke and chris rodriguez.

The last two weeks, it's been more of a two-headed monster.

A-j rose has 47 carries for 192 yards and two touchdowns.

Smoke has 34 carries for 251 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Rodriguez though has virtually disappeared.

5 carries for 34 yards all of that against toledo.

No carries in two games.

A bg reason why, early troubles hanging on to the football.

He fumbled twice against the rockets.

Agaisnt florida, solid blue fans were asking where he was on those short yardage plays.

Offensive eddie gran says believe it or not...the stats say rose should be in, but he's trying to get rodriguez back in the mix.

Tonight at l-c-a the eagles will host the lexington catholic knights in our high c1 3 school highlight game of the week.

For l-c-a their road to winning tonight is easy...you can't let u-k commit beau allen throw it all over the yard.

L-c-a head coach doug charles may be in his first year, but he's been around for awhile and he knows what his team is up against tonight.

Coach doug has done his homework.

Beau allen hasn't c1 3 thrown an interception this season.

He has thrown 14 touchdowns though.

To go along with more than 13- hundred yards.

He's the state's leading passer.

As he and his team prepares for tonight's big game, they don't treat it any differently than any other game.
