In class: Speech story

A Swedish climate activist, 16-year-old Greta Thunberg presents a speech to the United Nations Climate Action Summit in NYC.

The world leaders of today are leaving behind more CO2. The younger generations are gonna have a hand full of work to do due to the lack of changes the leaders are not doing.

The world leaders have set this up for younger generations to fail when its their time to deal with the issue.

The speech focused on the climate issues and the dying result of the ecosystems and people. And the younger generations have to worry about their future at this time of age because the leaders are not doing anything about it.

Stripping students away from education and into real world because being at a 50% risk isn’t acceptable as mentioned by Thunberg.

“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.” Thunberg states with much emotion.

Thunberg finishes on the idea of change, “change is coming, whether you like it or not.”

  1. Work on the verb in the first graf, and use the lead to give readers a sense of what was IN the speech:

    A Swedish climate activist, 16-year-old Greta Thunberg challenged the United Nations Climate Action Summit to do better, and to do right by young people.

    Readers can choose to read on, or not, based on that hint.

    Gonna? Not in a formal piece.

    Organization is mostly OK, though I don’t understand the fifth graf.
