Greta Thunberg is Leading is Global Climate Movement


(slow classical music) – [Woman] Greta is a 16-year-old girl who has inspired thousands
maybe even millions of people to stand up for both
themselves and the climate. – [Girl] She thought
everything was going in the wrong direction. And now she’s become a
really big role model for a lot of people. – [Girl] I look up to her a
lot ’cause I think it’s so cool what she’s doing. – [Girl] It’s time that
we actually stood up for the climate and did something instead of just sitting around. (slow classical music) – The climate crisis is the biggest crisis
humanity has ever faced. And yet it has been ignored for decades. The older people usually say that we owe it to the young people to give them hope. But we don’t want you to be hopeful, we want you to panic. They say that they love their children above all else, and yet they are stealing their future in front of their very eyes. The leaders who know that change is coming whether they like it or not. – [Announcer] One in four
Americans is skeptical of all the effects of climate change and thinks this issue’s been exaggerated. – Environmental annihilation is coming because we’ve been evil. – Do you know what this is? It’s a snowball. – Some people don’t believe
in the climate crises, they don’t understand that it’s real. And I have to say that I understand them in a way because in the beginning when I first found out about this I doubted that it was true. Because if it was true, then we wouldn’t be talking
about anything else. That would be our first priority. But it’s not. People say it’s like an abstract threat in the future, but it’s happening now; we can already see the changes. We already have increased the temperature above pre-industrial levels 1.2 degrees. And everything’s happening very fast now. We need to do something and act as if we were in a crisis because otherwise people won’t understand that we are in a crisis. – So Greta thanks to be with us, hi. You said many times I was like an invisible girl before. But now you are very famous, everybody is here with you, and they want you for the Nobel prize. How did you reach this point? – In August, last year I decided that this was enough. I sat myself down on the ground outside the Swedish parliament. And I school-striked for the climate. I have said that I will
continue to school strike every Friday until Sweden is in line with the Paris agreements. That may take a long time. I will have to be patient
and to remind myself of why I’m doing this. The symbolism of the school strike is that since you adults don’t give a damn about my future I won’t either. Why should we care for our future when we might not have one? And why should we bother to learn facts when facts
don’t matter in this society. It’s absurd that young people will have to skip school. And risk their own education
because they are scared of not having a future. And I think that is a very strong message. – You have heard about a Greta Thunburg. – Greta Thunburg. – Greta Thunburg. – Greta Thunburg. – Greta Thunburg, thank you very much for
joining us this morning. – At first I was all alone and then people started joining me. And then it started
spreading to different places and then different countries and then different continents. And then it became global. In December the UN had a climate change conference, and there I held some speeches. We have run out of excuses and we are running out of time. I think that was also
when more people started to found out about the school strikes. And then at the end of
January I was invited to the World Economic Forum. Our house is on fire. And also there I held a speech, which also went I think viral and those two I think, both those two were tipping
points of this movement. It has just escalated. And it’s going so fast
like I can’t even keep up with it anymore. Now there is hundreds of thousands of children who are striking
from school for their future. (children chanting) (speaking foreign language) When I was 11, I became very depressed. I stopped eating and I stopped talking and I stopped going to school. It had a lot to do with the climate and the environment. I started making changes in my own life. Like stop flying, stop eating meat and dairy. And stop buying new things. In order to be able to look myself in the eye. I need to do something myself. I started talking with my parents. After awhile they decided
to do that as well. Before I started the school strike I was that person who was invisible. I never spoke unless I had to. And also I have Asperger’s syndrome. I’m a bit different from everyone else. When you have Asperger’s
you also tend to have the capacity of being very focused and interested in some subjects. And that allowed me to focus on one thing for a very long time. I think that if I wouldn’t have had Asperger’s I don’t
think I would have started the school strike. And I don’t think I would
have been interested in the climates at all. Because if I would have
been like everyone else I’d just continued like
before not thinking twice about this, but now I can’t do that. My conscious doesn’t allow me to do that. (suspenseful music) (children chanting) I think this movement
could become very big; and I think that we have
just seen the beginning because more and more people are going to start realize the
emergency of the situation, and they will get angry. And they will want to
do something about it, especially young people who
will understand eventually that their future is
being taken from them. Many people say that we are too young to do this, we shouldn’t do this. And I agree, we shouldn’t have to do this. But in the situation we are in now. We feel like we have to do this because we won’t accept
you risking our future. If the adults won’t take responsibility, then we will have to. (slow classical music)

  1. Child abuse. Adults are supposed to allay the fears of their children, not feed those fears. The great catch cry is ' believe the science ' sure, but which science. There are as many scientists speaking out against the alarmist position as there are for it. Add to that that NONE of the predictions pushed by Gore and his ilk have materialised and you have doubt. Also, Greta is pushing for strick adherence to the Paris Agreement. The problem there is that the Paris Agreement isn't a climate policy, it's a wealth redistribution policy. Stop the hysteria now before it's to late.

  2. She isn't saving anything. She, like most of these women… are self obsessed narcissists. The MEN of Europe need to reign these bitches in before they do any MORE damage than they've already done!

  3. Does this young lady have Downs Syndrome? The most stubborn, obsessive , childlike people I have known . .but they have a water tight excuse . .it is in their genes and cannot be helped . .not many become professors at 16 though.

  4. 'If the adults won't take responsibly, we'll have to'… Most kids have better tech than their parents, designer clothing etc. kids and teenager demands now are so out of balance when compared to their parents upbringing and standards. Our generation had to have hand-me-downs, used bikes and toys and not 1000 pound/dollar smart phones that are filled with the planets resources mined from the earth. I walked or rode a bicycle to school most kids are uber'ed to school by their hardworking parents struggling with dated technology like iPhone's that are over 4-5 years old purely so their kids can be seen with the latest version. Parents genuinely struggling to pay bills just so their kids aren't bullied for wearing the wrong non-current sneakers (trainers). I admired Greta at first, but its out of her control now, it now belongs to big corp and the government; and has purely fuelled a new reason for kids to abscond from school. Its the small things that had to a bigger change. Using the car less is helpful, buying less stuff and being more content with what you already have is a great start. Researching ethical companies that are making vast changes and improvements in their products is being a good steward of the worlds resources. It may cost a little more, but it prevents buying more in the long term. It doesn't mean using a 4 million pound yacht to travel to New York…its sets a tone…but not a realistic narrative to live by. Only a few people are fortunate to travel via plane. So why focus upon it. Promote walking to be healthy, its attainable for most young people. Even where we shop and gain our products has an effect. Amazon and online shopping isn't always the best way to obtain products, it places transport infrastructures to be enabled, when a walk to a local store would prevent extra C02 being released. Creta isn't thinking like a child now, and weirdly that's are target demographic. The rhetoric is matching its intended focus group. Adults are now controlling her motives and movement. I wish her the best, and hope someone has her best interests at heart.

  5. So we can’t blame a 15 year old kid when a crime has been committed because the brain isn’t fully developed, but we have to fall on our knees and leave logic and reason behind when a 16 year old wants to change the whole world….

  6. Child abuse at it's most cynical using a mentally ill young girl to promote lies in the pursuit of power and money. Shame on her parents and shame on all the adults who go along with it.

  7. Most of the comment are from people who are as deluded, frightened, ignorant and paranoid as this poor young girl. Greta is the victim of child abuse. Climate science is split roughly in half between those who think humans are effecting the weather and those who see it as fluctuations in the weather. The msm don't want us to know this. What they also won't want you to know is that 2 Irish scientists have settled the debate. Their findings are at the peer review stage but look out for Dr Michael and Dr Ronan Connolly (father and son) in the near future. It's time to calm down and allow this young girl and many, many others to calm down too.

  8. My question is too what do you blame all the climate change on??? It can’t be CO2 as it is a very very small % of the atmosphere,, so what is the cause and what is the optimum mean global temperature that we should strive for???? Can anyone answer this for me as I don’t know???

  9. Typical of leftists to put a depressed kid with OCD and Asperger syndrome, on the front line of the Climate Change Tax Scam.

  10. A good solution to the climate Emergency would be for homeowners to 
    replace single family homes with a 4-plex home with 100 solar panels.

    California now has such a law pending to allow 4-plex homes to be built on a 
    single family lot, to increase housing near transportation hubs.

    This would create millions of independent solar generators, & so DECENTRALIZE energy
    generation to bring millions of dollars to solar home owners.

    This would help pay the mortgages & so lower the cost of housing by
    making money from the sun.

    This would help create a solar economy. San Luis Obisbo County could easily generate
    more energy from a million 4-plex solar homes, than comes from Diablo Canyon.

    Thus replacing the energy from solar by 2022, so the reactor could be shut down by 2024.

    Paul Kangas is a co-founder of Solar Justice, a solar advocacy group in SF.

    We are build a 4-plex home with 100 solar panels in Paradise, Ca.

    This model was developed in Germany in 1990 by Hans Joseph Fell & 
    Hermann Scheer. Read: "Energy Imperative".

  11. Everything is moving too fast: Amazon, Paradise, Ca., Africa, Arctic, Siberia are all on fire.

    At first I was all alone. Now the movement is global every FRIDAY.

  12. I’m sad at how many people buy this dog and pony show. I’m sympathetic to the cause but I HATE hucksters on either side of the matter. Do you not see that her parents and some of the barkers are using her for profiteering? Her mom says this girl can see CO2 with her naked eyes . I can beat that. I can smell bullshit through the internet.

  13. Climate change is a scam and let's hope Greta does more research. Perhaps firstly she might ask Obama and Gore why they have purchased multi million properties on the seafront of Martha's Vineyard when sea levels are (said to be) rising, and secondly, ask Bill Gates and Professor David Keith of Harvard University why they are spraying the world with sulfuric acid youtube.com/watch?v=Rf4N3ylWZt8
    Is Greta being used by those pushing for U.N. Agenda 21/30 so beautifully exposed by Rosa Koire. Do the research Greta!

  14. Looking for intelligent comments… nope. All I see are reactionary virtue signalers with naught a shred of critical thought. Gen Z, aren't you supposed to be aware that the MSM is owned by megacorporations that pushes false narratives designed to erode national borders, violently clash cultures together for the purpose of forging a one world government wielding absolute totalitarian control?

    The rest of you – you say that politicians and the MSM are lost, totally blind to the "facts" being promoted by Greta, but then why are almost all of the most corrupt politicians, and the most corrupt media venues, all promoting her with zeal?

    If you know that over 95% of the major media publications are owned by 5 megacorporations, then why mindlessly swallow the narratives they all collectively push onto the public? Do you not see the terrible irony here?

  15. How a sixteen year old isn't leading a Global climate movement… how she is being used by the corporatists should be the heading. Poor puppet.

  16. She says she stopped eating meat, but it looks like there is meat on her plate. Unless they're potatoes. Sweden looks like they have some quality meat.

    Edit: 6:05

  17. Use an autistic underage kid to push a political agenda. Great job. Keep it up. Btw the fancy boat ride she took contributed more to pollution than taking a 2 way plane ticket to ny and back.

  18. This puts the young population in fear.. and it's supposed to, it's part of the sick plan… stop fearing this scam, and stop listening to a used puppet Greta Thunberg.

  19. And the unsuspecting masses all pile into the arena like drones…. sheep!!! herd them in like farm animals to listen to this bullsh*t. Gormless and gullible.

  20. A young adult, dressed and styled as a small child, combined with multliple mental issues and neglectful, pushy parents = a dream of a creation, that cannot be questioned or criticised – 'how dare you pick on a child', 'you bully, she's got asperger's'
    Her parents are responsible for her inevitable mental breakdown

  21. “At the age of 11 I became depressed because of the climate” AND YES BTW THIS IS CHILD ABUSE !!! DIRTY ROTTEN GLOBAL WARMING SCAMMERS !

  22. Climate Change….agenda 21 2030 promotion. Not enough recorded weather history to concur it is all going to shit. My God look into history before the flood. Read a book Earth Man and Devolution, R Pilotte.

  23. Oh wow look at these comments, there are still people who think that climate change doesn't exist.
    Really? The Sun is the only thing that affects climate?
    Do some actual research, environmental scientists around the world have confirmed these issues to be real that why people are calling it out.
    And what's all this buzz about Gretta being a puppet? How exactly is this movement bad?

  24. How is it possible for a Pippy Long-Stocking looking ass teenage Girl to look like a 30 year old East German shot putter, probably called Helga or some shit.

  25. The left is so warped. Its so evil. Panic is not good feeling. Its based on fear as evil. Who told her to say "I want you to panic" ? Never wish bad things on people to get your point across.

  26. We need a BILLION more Greta Thunbergs with GUNS and ARMS fighting the fossil fuel addiction pushers in government and all the PAID SHILLS for big oil big coal big gas.

  27. The only irrational zealots & extremists I see in the comment section are the fanatical antisocialist anti-communist
    antiMarxist hypocritical conservative pieces of shit who all support violent revolution against governments such as Venezuela
    for no good reason at all.

  28. This child models herself on Pippi Longstocking who is a virtuous hero who is eccentric, has super human strength, is unconventional and talks down to adult authority figures. She's close.

  29. Using children for a political agenda is criminal, child abuse. We are headed for a colder, drier period of years, this was predicted by Wheeler decades ago, from tree ring and ice core samples, also sunspot records. It is completely irresponsible to be pushing wind and solar when we will need coal to survive these next decades. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EtW2rrLHs08 Very short and sweet, only scientific fact, plus no one is demanding monry here, just trying to wake people up to common sense.

  30. Dear Greta
    I've got a little bit of a problem… see, I'm from Slovenia… a small country next to Italy. The problem is that my mom thinks I am crazy if I want to strike.

  31. It is sad that a child has been moved to fear by the agenda's of adults. This child is very mature and courageous. While we humans have committed atrocities against each other, against this planet, and most egregiously against God, she is not speaking on her own accord or based on her own knowledge. She is speaking what she has been fed. Instead of living with joy as a child should, her childhood has been stolen from her for the purposes of adults who know no bounds. Shame on them. They will know the consequences of all they have done when they face judgment.

  32. Greta is too young to understand her mistake. If i was able to talk with her…i can show her GHG effect is false and Ideal Gas is true. Math would be able to push her out from the shadow and darkness!
