Earlier today a young Swedish girl gave a heart-wrenching speech and UN headquarters about climate change, and the effects it has on the younger generations.

The 16-year-old Thunberg climate change activist had many intense views on how the government is handling the changes that are happening around the world. She even went as far as to say “You are still not mature enough to tell it how it is”.

“You have stolen my dreams and my childhood” she exclaimed while fighting back tears. “You say you understand the urgency but I do not want to believe that”. As the speech continued, the opinions got stronger, and the crowd fell more and more silent.

It seems that this high school-aged kid, has begun to make more of a difference than most politicians ever dreamed of making.

As the speech neared an end, she intently scanned the crowd and firmly said “And if you chose to fail us, we will never forgive you”. After her passionate performance, 65 countries had announced efforts to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.
