My message is that
we’ll be watching you. k[Laughter/applause] This is all wrong. I shouldn’t be up here. I should be back in school
on the other side of the ocean. Yet you all come to us
young people for hope? How dare you! You have stolen my dreams and my
childhood with your empty words. And yet I’m one of the lucky ones. People are suffering. People are dying. Entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are in the beginning
of a mass extinction. And all you can talk about
is money and fairytales of eternal economic growth. How dare you! [Cheering/applause] For more than 30 years the science
has been crystal clear. How dare you continue to look away,
and come here saying that you are doing enough,
when the politics and solutions needed are still nowhere in sight. You say you “hear” us
and that you understand the urgency. But no matter how sad and angry I am,
I don’t want to believe that. Because if you really understood
the situation and still kept on failing to act,
then you would be evil. And that I refuse to believe.
[Applause] The popular idea of cutting
our emissions in half in 10 years only gives us a 50% chance
of staying below 1.5C degrees, and the risk of setting off irreversible
chain reactions beyond human control. 50% may be acceptable to you. But those numbers do not
include tipping points, most feedback loops,
additional warming hidden by toxic air pollution or the
aspects of equity and climate justice. They also rely on my generation
sucking hundreds of billions of tonnes of your CO2 out of the air with
technologies that barely exist. So a 50% risk is simply
not acceptable to us – we who have to live
with the consequences. How dare you pretend that this
can be solved with just business-as-usual and some technical solutions. With today’s emissions levels,
that remaining CO2 budget will be entirely gone within less
than eight and a half years. There will not be any solutions
or plans presented in line with these figures today. Because these numbers
are too uncomfortable. And you are still not mature
enough to tell it like it is. You are failing us. But the young people are starting
to understand your betrayal. The eyes of all future generations
are upon you. And if you choose to fail us
I say we will never forgive you. [Applause] We will
not let you get away with this. Right here, right now
is where we draw the line. The world is waking up. And change is coming,
whether you like it or not. Thank you.
[Cheering/applause]

  2. then why don't you get up off ur backside and get involved instead of mouthing off…
    this is a lot of us that care and are doing… not just talking about it..

  3. Why are you using YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram then Greta? Didn't that come from Capitalism and money?

  4. Y'all need to stop making fun of her cuz y'all don't even have the balls to do what she's doing,and of course she'll be upset she's a child from her home and family and she's having to tell the world to do something about the environment instead letting it be destroyed 🙄y'all need to grow some balls and see the big picture here

  5. Your rich and famous and yet “your dreams and childhood has been cut short” your literally the lucky ones

  6. The amount of anti-science, anti acknowledgment of climate change in this comment section with people just mocking her is insane.

  7. I agree with Putin on this 🤷‍♀️ nobody ever explained to her the complexity of this matter….. You can't tell developing countries they will not be like Sweden 🙂

  8. BLOOD ALONE MOVES THE WHEELS OF HISTORY!
    Have you ever asked yourselves in an hour of meditation – which everyone finds during the day – how long we have been striving for greatness? Not only the years we've been at war, the war of work, but from the moment as a child, when we realize the world could be conquered. It has been a lifetime struggle, a never-ending fight, I say to you and you will understand that it is a privilege to fight. WE ARE WARRIORS!
    Salesmen of north-eastern Pennsylvania, I ask you once more rise and be worthy of this historical hour. No revolution is worth anything unless it can defend itself. Some people will tell you salesman is a bad word. They'll conjure up images of used car dealers, and door to door charlatans. This is our duty to change their perception. I say, salesman and women of the world…
    We must never acquiesce, for it is together… TOGETHER THAT WE PREVAIL. WE MUST NEVER CEDE CONTROL OF THE MOTHERLAND… …FOR IT IS TOGETHER THAT WE PREVAIL!

  9. This is completely disingenuous. From the moment he started talking, he started playing. She's not serious. Extravagant acting. He's definitely been assigned. Instead of blaming the United States, Russia and China, blaming Turkey and the less guilty countries is inexplicable.

  10. We make fun of her now but in 20 years when all of our major coastal cities are flooded and we can’t go outside without a gas mask we gon be sick and wish we listened instead of making memes 😭

  11. So a bunch of dumb carbon based life forms are blocking road ways to save the world from carbon causing more carbon to be burnt all well they are breathing out CO2 (Carbon)… I wonder am I the only one that sees how stupid these carbon based life forms are! Not to mention they would be making emergency workers late for work possibly causing other carbon based life forms to die and release carbon… All this on a Carbon based planet where all life is Carbon… Carbon is the 4th most common thing in all the universe.

  12. And in Sweden, where this little brat comes from, the fruits are still individually wrapped in plastic wrap. Maybe she should make a difference in her own country first and not fly over the planet and make someone an environmental activist.

  13. HOW DARE YOU GRETTA!! I completely agree with what your saying but you still shouldn’t have the right to lecture the world and the government I’m sorry

  14. This girl should be appreciated for standing up to those who dont care while we sit back and just make fun her for doing something none of us can

  16. I've Written a Letter to Daddy,,
    Saying,,I,,,LOVE,,,,,,,You.
    I've written a letter to Daddy
    His address is Heaven above

    Saying "I love you"
    I've written a letter to Daddy

  21. I swear I heard no actual statistic in there at all her argument was based on emotions and playing with the opposition's emotions

  22. Wow, people on this thread seem to be really threatened by the fact that a smart and courageous young woman is pointing out to the world that are economy and lifestyles are destroying the health of the living planet our very lives depend on. Why all the hate?
