“How dare you! You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words,” Thunberg added.
Greta Thunberg, 16 year old Swedish climate activist, spoke out to the world leaders at UN Climate Action Summit. Climate change is overlooked by many in todays world, and Thunberg’s message is that “we’ll be watching you.”
Thunberg continued on with her speech saying that the members of the United Nations Climate Action Summit care about is their money and economic growth.
She continues to add on how they say they “hear us and that you understand the urgency, but no matter how sad and angry I am, I do not want to believe that.” Scientists try to be clear with what the future could possibly hold for the Earth, “67% chance of staying below a 1.5 degrees global temperature rise.”
Individuals, especially young people these days are trying to do what is right, especially when it comes to the world we live in. Young people are “starting to understand your betrayal.”
“I want you to feel the fear I feel every day,” Thunberg added, “And then I want you to act.”
65 countries, after Thunberg’s speech, had announced efforts to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. And Thunberg led 150 countries in a Global Climate Strike. “The world is waking up. And change is coming, whether you like it or not.”
