Listen to Moir’s Environmental Dialogues on Thursday January 3 at 3 p.m. Eastern Time:
“My name is Greta Thunberg, I am fifteen years old. I am from Sweden. I speak on behalf of Climate Justice Now. . . Our biosphere is being sacrificed so that rich people in countries like mine can live in luxury. It is the suffering of the many which pay for the luxuries of the few. . . You say you love your children above all else. And yet you are stealing their future in front of their very eyes. Until you start focusing on what can be done instead of what is politically feasible, there is no hope. We cannot solve a crisis, without treating it as a crisis. We need to keep the fossil fuels in the ground, and we need to focus on equity. And if solutions within this system are so impossible to find, then maybe we should change the system itself. . . We have come here to let you know that change is coming, whether you like it or not. The real power belongs to the people.
