A child (Greta Thunberg) tells the British Parliament, we children have no future because of global warming.
It is a very sad day when our children have to shame adults into action on global warming in order to save their own children! Read the following and see if you can figure out what's wrong with us as parents and adults and why we are not panicking and acting.
You can click the link further below to see Greta's two-minute video and read her complete jaw-dropping speech. But here is just a small piece of that speech which also repeats quite closely what we have been telling you for years about our global warming emergency:
"Around the year 2030, 10 years 252 days and 10 hours away from now, we will be in a position where we set off an irreversible chain reaction beyond human control, that will most likely lead to the end of our civilization as we know it. That is unless in that time, permanent and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society have taken place, including a reduction of CO2 emissions by at least 50%.
And please note that these calculations are depending on inventions that have not yet been invented at scale, inventions that are supposed to clear the atmosphere of astronomical amounts of carbon dioxide.
Furthermore, these calculations do not include unforeseen tipping points and feedback loops like the extremely powerful methane gas escaping from rapidly thawing Arctic permafrost.
Nor do these scientific calculations include already locked-in warming hidden by toxic air pollution. Nor the aspect of equity – or climate justice – clearly stated throughout the Paris agreement, which is absolutely necessary to make it work on a global scale.
We must also bear in mind that these are just calculations. Estimations. That means that these “points of no return” may occur a bit sooner or later than 2030. No one can know for sure. We can, however, be certain that they will occur approximately in these timeframes, because these calculations are not opinions or wild guesses."
What will it finally take to get the parents of the world to protect their own children's immediate future by getting the governments of the world to meet the required global emergency fossil fuel reductions? Click here to see what governments should be doing to save us and our children!
