Last week the world went on strike to protest the inaction from the power structures of society with regard to the current climate emergency and today New Zealand is showing their determination to be heard.
So what can we, a podcast do?
We have an audience, and so we are publishing the audio of Greta Thunberg’s emotional and, to some, confrontational speech at last Friday’s UN Climate Summit with the hope that it will inspire each and every one us into more direct and noticeable action.
Good luck to all those who participate in the nation-wide strikes, and here’s to all of us, together making the world a place we want to live in.
Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg chastised world leaders Monday, Sep. 23, for failing younger generations by not taking sufficient steps to stop climate change. "You have stolen my childhood and my dreams with your empty words," Thunberg said at the United Nations Climate Action Summit in New York. "You're failing us, but 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," she added. Thunberg traveled to the U.S. by sailboat last month so she could appear at the summit. She and other youth activists led international climate strikes on Friday in an attempt to garner awareness ahead of the UN's meeting of political and business leaders.
