Climate activist Greta Thunberg tells off world leaders

Let us open it with our determination to cultivate integral human development, to ensure a better life for future generations.

Thunberg also accused world leaders of inaction on the subject of climate change.

Thunberg, who traveled from Europe to NY for the summit on a zero-emissions sailboat, said she should be in school in her native Sweden rather than at the United Nations telling world leaders what to do to address climate change.

The U.S. has reduced greenhouse gas emissions significantly from 2005 to 2017, and the spokesperson said the country is a world leader in innovative energy technologies.

Backed by African climate change negotiators, the statement is also expected to say that countries' climate action plans should be made legally binding, to ensure the 2015 Paris Agreement goals to limit global warming are met. In a clear snub, the White House instead reserved a conference room where Trump would attend a conference on religious freedom along with Secretary of State Michael Pompeo.


It's a movement that Helps said has kept her motivated as she pushes climate strategies in her city.

He used kayaking as an analogy to climate change, explaining that balancing on a kayak is very hard, but if you lose your balance, you fall into the water.

Announced at a press conference hosted at UNICEF Headquarters in NY, the complaint aims to inspire the urgent action needed to curb global heating and mitigate the impact of the climate crisis.

The Citizens' Climate Lobby says there's still time to reduce the worst impacts of climate change. "Whenever there is a cataclysmic climate event, infrastructure gets undermined and overwhelmed very quickly, and it becomes very hard for developing countries or countries who do not have economic wherewithal to address these", he said. But he did, later, after Thunberg had concluded her remarks.

"You come to us young people for hope".


Or, as someone said at Friday's rally on the Capitol steps: The world will go on, but we will not be able to live on it.

"We are not yet there", he said, admitting that we are "still losing the race" against climate change but credited Greta Thunberg for bringing attention to the issue.

"Time is running out, but it's not too late", he said. "How dare you", said the Swedish teenager, her voice quivering.

"So I call out to the leaders of the world, it's not tomorrow, it's not our children's children, it's us, it's now, it's happening, and it's going to affect all of us in some way or another".

"Today, that figure is already down to less than 350 gigatons", Thunberg said, adding that at current emission rates, the carbon budget laid out by the IPCC "will be entirely gone in less than eight and a half years". "And change is coming, whether you like it or not".


The Swedish campaigner's brief address electrified the start of a summit aimed at mobilizing government and business to break global paralysis over carbon emissions, which hit record highs a year ago despite decades of warnings from scientists. But the young people are starting to understand your betrayal.
