    5 young activists continue their hunger strike outside the White House

    Five young climate activists are on their seventh day of a hunger
    strike outside the White House, to demand government action on climate
    to match the severity of the crisis.
    Kidus Girma, 26, a climate activist and organizer, is one of the five.
    He told CNN a doctor who has been monitoring the strikers sent him to
    the emergency room Saturday, for nausea, dizziness and blurred vision.
    Girma said physicians monitored him overnight, then he returned to the strike. He and his fellow strikers, who have been protesting in
    Lafayette Square since October 20, are now using wheelchairs to keep
    them steady.

    "I'm seven days into the hunger strike and my body hurts, my stomach
    honestly feels vacuous, my body feels vacuous, and I have a headache
    that won't go away," Girma told CNN. "We're at the point where our
    muscles are being eaten up by our bodies."

    In the first three days, the body is still using energy from glucose.
    After that, the liver starts processing body fat, in a process called ketosis. After depleting fat, the body "mines" the muscles and vital
    organs for energy, and loss of bone marrow becomes life-threatening.
    There are examples of hunger strikers dying after 46 to 73 days of
    strike, for example the 1981 Irish hunger strike.

    "These poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white
    kids," commented Biden
    We still have a month to go before we can haul away their bodies and
    get on with things.

    Joe must be tormented by the sight of them starving as he stands
    in front of the window eating his sandwich.
