“You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words!” Greta Thunberg said passionately to the crowd.
16-year-old Swede Greta Thunberg is not happy with how world leaders are dealing with climate change. She made this very clear at the U.N. Climate Action Summit yesterday, passionately expressing her frustrations and worries if world leaders continue to not do anything. Even with the social problems her Aspergers syndrome can cause, Greta still spoke very clearly and with no hesitation. She brought up different figures detailing just how dangerous climate change can become if not handled correctly.
“You’re failing us!” Greta screamed to the world leaders in attendance. She told the leaders that if nothing is done, her childhood is ruined and she will have no future. Greta continued on to say that there are only 8 and a half years left before climate emissions budget is gone. Meaning the world could begin to have major problems, eventually leading to mass extinction of the human race. Several times throughout the speech she stated, “How dare you!” which was just another emotional statement made by Greta to drive home her point. Her passionate speech must’ve struck a chord, as 65 countries pled achieve net-zero emissions by 2050 by the end of yesterday.
