Famous quotes by Greta Thunberg

At 16, Greta Thunberg has become one of the most relevant characters of 2019 for her climate activism. Although she is not the only one, and even she herself claims that the media do not give her so much prominence; It cannot be denied that his determination has permeated society and promoted the Fridays For Future movement, in whose name thousands of young people around the planet take to the streets in demonstrations to protest the implementation of measures against climate change .

But not just any measure. Young people are demanding THE measures that, with the support of scientists, politicians should already be implementing in all countries to mitigate the effects of this emergency. And climate summits are the right forum for these protests to reach the ears of world leaders. These, for their part, participate in the summit (those who attend it) with the commitment to apply the mandates of the experts. At least, facing the gallery.

Greta Thunberg has attended the 2019 climate summit held in Madrid, COP25, with her usual speech. His charisma, precisely, resides in his humility, his humanity and his clarity. On December 6, Thunberg participated in a press conference organized by the Youth for Climate and Fridays For Future movements, in the social and cultural center of the Montemadrid Foundation, shortly before leading the (now usual every Friday) peaceful march for the climate by El Centro de Madrid.

On Wednesday the 11th, Greta made a speech in one of the plenary sessions of the summit, with mature and scientific words. After remembering that words like “How dare you?” Delivered at the summit in New York last September, “is all that people remember”, the Swedish activist has abandoned the speech of emotion and has spoken, this time, with more moderate words.

We have compiled some of the most important phrases that Greta has pronounced during her presence in Madrid at the COP25 events:

“If we have a 67% chance to limit the temperature rise to 1.5 ° C, we have 420 gigatons of CO2 left to emit in our carbon budget as of January 1, 2018.”

“How can you react to these figures without feeling at least some level of panic ?”

“How do you respond to the fact that basically nothing is being done without feeling some outrage ? And how do you communicate this without sounding alarmist?”

“This is not leadership. The policy that is needed does not exist today. The leaders do not behave as if it were an emergency ”.

“I really hope that COP25 is an occasion for politicians to do something in the face of the emergency , and that this is something that they cannot hide anymore.”

“We have been on a climate strike for a year, and they still do nothing. People are suffering and dying and we cannot continue like this “

What is your message to world leaders?

– ” We will be watching you

“You come to us young people looking for hope. How do you get through? (How dare you?)

“You have stolen my childhood and my dreams, with your empty words”

“People are suffering, they are dying. Entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are at the beginning of a mass extinction, and all they talk about is fairy tale promises of eternal economic growth. How dare you ?! “

“For more than 30 years, science has been crystal clear: how dare you keep looking the other way?

“If you really understand the situation and still refuse to act, that means you are bad people. And I refuse to believe that.
