“How dare you.”: Greta Thunberg shares an urgent message at the UN Climate Summit.
Swedish Climate activist Greta Thunberg’s emotional testimony about the state of climate change today sends an urgent message to the world’s leaders: “We are in the beginning of a mass extinction, and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth. How dare you!”
16-year-old Thunberg’s testimony did not hesitate to mention uncomfortable statistics. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the greatest chance of staying below 1.5 degrees Celsius is 67%, Thunberg states.
“There will not be any solutions or plans presented in line with these figures here today, because these numbers are too uncomfortable.” Said Thunberg, “ And you are still not mature enough to tell it like it is.”
Thunberg’s final message is a warning. “We will not let you get away with this. Right here, right now is where we draw the line. The world is waking up. And change is coming, whether you like it or not.”
