The 16 Year Old Calling Out Global Leaders on Climate Change – Greta Thunberg

The 16 Year Old Calling Out Global Leaders on Climate Change – Greta Thunberg


Schoolchildren across the country are
expected to skip classes on Friday as part of a strike
against climate change. I do not accept that taking time
off school is useful for children. Skipping school is
not in my vocabulary. It’s not a good idea.
I never thought it was a good idea. Kids should go to school. Whose future? Our future! Save our planet! Greta is an inspiration for us all, she was the catalyst
of this movement. I just sat down outside
the Swedish parliament. I would never have imagined that
it was going to be this big. She was my inspiration to start this. Together we’ve started a revolution. We will be in 100 countries at least. Basically towns and
cities everywhere. It’s going to be gigantic. We’re marching towards
Buckingham Palace! We will be a pain in the arse. We will keep on striking
until they do something. We are facing the biggest
crisis humanity has ever faced. If your house is on fire, you
don’t sit down and talk. I want people to panic. We have come here to let you
know that change is coming whether you like it or not. My name is Greta Thunberg, I’m from Sweden
and I am a climate activist. We are outside the
Swedish parliament. I sit here every Friday. I am not a scientist, I don’t
have the proper education. I am only a messenger. If we continue at the rate
we are now, by the year 2030 we will set off an
irreversible chain reaction which will trigger events
beyond human control, then there is no going back. My demand is that the politicians
should follow the Paris Agreement. If you have read the Paris Agreement,
you know that it’s very radical. If I should have any other
demands, maybe it would be to declare an international
climate emergency. We demand that our
government provides a plan to protect our future and
reach the 1.5 Paris target. We also demand a coal phase-out
in Germany until 2030. Our first demand is
for the government to declare a climate emergency and take active steps
towards climate justice. Our second demand is to
accurately portray the crisis to the general public
and for the government to recognise that as the youth, we have the
greatest stake in our future by incorporating our
views into policymaking and bringing the voting
age down to sixteen. We have three demands. One is that we have a big
international role, Belgium. Second of all, that
politicians really need to start talking to the experts and climate becomes a
priority in politics. Before Greta started this,
nobody talked about it ever. It was not a topic at all when it’s actually one of the biggest
threats that we will ever face. I first started learning
about climate change when I was maybe eight, in school, when my teacher showed
us pictures of plastic in the ocean and starving polar bears and
extreme weather events. Those pictures were stuck in my head,
I couldn’t stop thinking about them. When I was maybe 11,
I became depressed. I stopped eating and
I stopped talking and I stopped going to school. I got out of that depression
by thinking to myself, “There is so much I can do.” I just woke up as
usual, had breakfast, and then took some flyers and signs and just sat down outside
the Swedish parliament, inspired by the Parkland
students in the United States. And then some media
started writing about it and already the second day when I sat
down, people started joining me. And since then, I am almost
never alone when I’m here. After a few weeks it started
spreading to other Swedish cities, and then to other countries. I would never have imagined that
it was going to be this big. What are we going to do? Save the climate! When? Now! When? Now! When? When? When? Now! Now! Now! Since I have Asperger’s,
I am very direct. I don’t say nice words just to be
polite, I say just how it is, and I think that we lack
that very much today. You say you love your
children above all else and yet you’re stealing their
future in front of their very eyes. You are not mature enough
to tell it like it is. Even that burden you
leave to us children. What do you mean,
do-do-do-do… When we started these
strikes in Berlin, every week it was so much pressure
for me just to get people there. In the beginning it was just people
I knew that I was asking a favour and you can’t do a campaign
on favours that way. Louis was the first person
I asked to join in the beginning. I wasn’t by myself because there
were other people with the same idea in different cities, like Jakob. Right now we have little local
groups of Fridays for Future in more than 350 cities
across the country. We are now all over the place. We have these meetings and
usually they’re super packed. After a few weeks of striking, we realised that people
don’t feel committed to it when they don’t have a personal
connection to the strikes. So at the beginning
we had only phone calls, but it turned out very quickly that
you need people to come together and actually get to know each other,
so we introduced meetings every week. I don’t know if you have noticed…
By the way I’m Luisa Saving energy! You meet in person and bond
and then you build trust. – And they all became friends. Yes, and now they’re super
tight friend groups. They meet every day. Please tell everyone about it and be there on time on Friday. Me and Evie did this
event last night. Basically it was called Letters Live. It’s like a gig but they read
letters out instead of songs. It was, kind of,
led by Benedict Cumberbatch. So we read the global
strike letter out. He was really impressed
with us, really supportive. Tom Odell was there,
Thom Yorke from Radiohead. – Ah, that’s so sick.
– Yeah. Benedict Cumberbatch held my hand. Hey.
Yeah, good. Hey, how are you? – Hey, how are you doing?
– Good. We had an open contest where anyone
could submit a logo they wanted and we’ve just voted for this one. The two circles are like global unity and also it’s like a book. You know, there’s the symbol of raising
your hand as an activism thing but that’s like raising
your hand in class, so it was kind of a play on that. What do you think? Yeah, I think that’s the
best one out of them. Ooh, that’s Anuna.
Okay, I’ll go after. Just answer her. Hi, Anuna. – There we go.
– Here I am, there you are. I guess I’ll just explain
how we do it here. So we have a group of people,
there’s maybe about eight of us, and then we have a wider group because we get so many messages
from towns everywhere in the UK saying, “Can we set one up?”
– Yeah, okay. Where are you going to
do it on the 15th? So on the 15th, we’re between
50 and 100 at the moment, it’s changing every day, so basically
towns and cities everywhere. The major one is going
to be in London. We need one big group
of all the countries that are striking on the 15th so that they call all send through
their numbers of how many they were so that we can count it up, because it will be really amazing
if we do something like that. Yeah, definitely we’ll
make that happen. On March 15th we have a global
strike and we want to make them feel that if the whole world can
unite about climate change, the politicians cannot
ignore it anymore. This is an issue that transcends
borders, it transcends nationalities. March 15th is really
a message of unity. The thing I really
wanted to ask you about was how you went about setting
up meetings with politicians. The thing is, they’re just really
going to give you some bullshit. It’s really important that you always
stay very neutral politically. And second of all, it’s
also really important that when you speak to politicians, you need to be badass. They’re going to be like,
“What do you suggest, what do you think we need to do?” And then you’re going to be like, “I don’t know because I’m
in high school, fucker.” I’m feeling a bit sick,
I woke up very nauseous, but I really want to
do the strike today so we’re just gonna go for
it and it’ll be fine, yeah. Badass. This is Kyra, my best friend, and we
started Youth For Climate together. We’re doing this, like,
as partners in crime. Today we’re in Louvain-la-Neuve and I already see a lot of people. My name is Luka and I’m
the twin sister of Anuna. For three months now there’s
been a lot of interviews. It’s like a full-time job
definitely for her but for me, it’s crazy that
people are yelling her name, that people are like, “Can I
take a picture with Anuna?” I’m like, “Oh, that’s my sister,”
but mostly I just feel so proud. We’re more heated We’re more heated More heated than the climate We’re more heated We’re more heated More heated than the climate The plenary meeting in the week
is on Thursday in Belgium. I always protest on a Thursday but I think it’s important
to do it on a weekday because I feel like
if we wouldn’t rebel and we wouldn’t do anything
wrong according to the system, nobody would listen to us. And that has been proven because
we’ve striked on Sundays and it’s been ignored. On the 15th, I hope it
will be all over the world and in every country
there will be strikes. I’m really stressing out because
I really want it to be big. We’re more heated More heated than the climate We’re more heated We’re more heated More heated than the climate So this is the ministry of economy
and that’s the ministry of mobility and right in between we strike, because we need a change in
economy and a change in mobility, and it’s very convenient because
you’ve got this natural stage here. So every Friday we ask people
to come here and strike with us for three months now. We are here
We are loud Stealing our future:
Not allowed A few weeks ago there
was this journalist and he was, like, just not nice and he started this online campaign
against me with a hashtag. My friends from Berlin
with the strikes, they started a counter-hashtag and for weeks it said, in very big
letters here, “we love Luisa.” We’re at the Federal
Press Conference. We’re here with
Scientists for Future, which is 700-plus leading climate
scientists across Germany who came together and said,
“Listen to those young kids because they’re right and we’ve
got the science behind this.” Our position fully supports the
demands of the protesting students
to act quickly and decisively in regards to climate change. I think I’ve understood why no
one listens to science. -It was totally boring right?
-Yeah. -Go! Go! Go! Come on inside!
Come on inside, guys! I want to start by
welcoming you, our guests direct from the
Federal Press Conference they’re coming to us
from Fridays for Future. We on the political left are excited about their commitment. Mrs. Merkel, the climate chancellor
should be called “climate destroyer chancellor.” There is nothing that frightens
our government more than voters heading
to the streets. We need everyone of you and are relying on the fact
that you will join. I actually had no idea that
this was going to be so big. I expected, like, a few people in a
conference room but it was huge. And we were supposed to do a speech
thing and I thought it was a Q&A, so I had nothing prepared. We could have been much
harsher and said, really, “You’re messing up the coal exit,” because coal energy plays a huge role
and they’re not critical enough. Everyone wants to be
associated with what we do. People see that we get
a lot of attention. There is little you can say against
young people who demand a future. So I think when people
come to us and say, “It’s great what you do.
Can we support you? Can we take a picture together?” they want to get
some cool points. Can I take a quick photograph? It’s so lovely. Yeah, our day in a nutshell. Sometimes it’s hard to deal
with all this media attention. They constantly take pictures
and film and ask questions. Before I started the school strike
I was very shy. It’s a huge contrast,
but I haven’t changed. I don’t know if people
in my generation are willing to change their
habits and lifestyles to reduce their own
carbon footprints, because we want to do what
everyone else wants to do. We want to become famous and
we want to have a private jet. We want to have a sports car
just like everyone else and we can’t continue
thinking like this. – What do we want?
– Climate justice! – When do we want it?
– Now! You are all so welcome to the seventh
edition of Youth For Climate. We are having a very
international day here. We have Greta from Sweden, Luisa from Germany, and 8,500 students from Belgium. Thank you all for being here today. Greta! Greta!
Greta! Greta! Greta! Greta! For way too long, the people
in power have gotten away with not caring about
the climate crisis but we will be a pain in the arse, we will keep on striking
until they do something. We don’t do this because it’s easy,
we do this because it’s hard, and we are doing this. And we refuse to be
silenced about our future. We’re more heated We’re more heated More heated than the climate We’re more heated We’re more heated More heated than the climate In Brussels, that was the
first time I met Anuna and some of the organisers
of the school strike. Meeting Greta is amazing because she
was my inspiration to start this and now, together with all the
other countries and Luisa and Kyra, we’ve started a revolution. Today we’re going to
Paris because we think it’s really important that
everybody joins the movement and it’s only the second strike
in Paris so it’s not that big yet so we want to be,
like, an inspiration. – Are you guys the organisers here? We organise the strikes in Belgium. – Yeah, yeah, yeah. Can I get-, – Hey, hey, this is Anna Taylor.
– One of the UK organisers. – We’re both from the UK.
– Yeah, England. Do you have strikes in the UK? Yeah, so we had a huge one. How many people were there? – 15,000 across the UK.
– 5,000 in London. – Last week?
– Yeah, last week. – We’re hoping for a lot more.
– 15,000, that is great. – Yeah, that’s our first time.
– First time, that’s great. One, two, three degrees It’s a crime
Against humanity In Paris, President Macron
invited us over. That was a very sobering meeting. He hasn’t quite understood why
we’re going on the streets. He was really kind
and he was listening but I hope he understands
that we need brave leaders that are going to take
the brave decisions. What we need to do is not to
wait ten years and then act but to act now, because in ten years
it’s too late. Politicians need to be held
accountable for their words and I think that this movement
can keep pushing them to actually do what
they say they will do. -We’re going to do
an Instagram takeover. What?
What is that? We’d be such attention whores. Attention whores, sorry. We were thinking you could do an
Instagram takeover from backstage. That’s only from 5:30pm. -We have to do it?
-If you’d like, yes. We can use my phone. You can take photos of yourself
for Snapchat if one of you are having
a drink or something. Great, will do. I’m going to do your make-up. That’s ok. I need it today.
– You’ll have time to eat a bit after. Just something subtle.
I really have bags. My life has gotten way more
interesting than it was before. Being a public figure suddenly,
because I’m 17, it’s really weird and it’s different but I feel like I have more freedom and I get to meet people that
have a story and not just, like, seventeen-year-olds that want
to drink and party and stuff, so I really like it. I look like that chick
from The Hunger Games. I would just be careful because it’s
one of the biggest political debates. You’re going to create
a lot of polarised opinions if you go too deep into it. Before the show, we discuss about
how we’re going to say some things and what we are going to address,
because it’s a performance so you have to know what
to say and how to act. Hello, this is Kyra and Anuna
from Youth For Climate We’re guests today on
Van Gils & Gasten to make our demands together with
Sami and his dog. Hi. There we go! It’s posted. So cute. I don’t need a boyfriend.
I want the dog. Voila, Anuna and Kyra. I’m going to start yawning. There you go.
You’re welcome. Thank you, thank you. Anuna you sit here
and Kyra you sit here. There’s a sticker here for you to
sit and stay within the frame limits. I hear a lot of people saying: “Yeah, we’re not going to reach this
goal by only doing this in Belgium”. But for me this is
just pointing fingers because Belgium is also scoring
really badly on a European level. I feel amazing when she’s up there
talking to all these big guys. They have a lot of experience, they
have communication lessons and stuff, and she’s just 17,
she’s just Googling stuff to know what she’s talking about. I wouldn’t be as strong as she is. And by waiting on China, America,
India, the big pollutants- -So can I ask a counter question? Is there anybody at the table
who believes that China is waiting for
us to [reduce CO2], and when we do, they’ll be like: “Okay, yes and now
we are going to do this too”? [unintelligible protest] -That’s the argument
that is being used here. It’s good that you ask the question but that’s not the point
that Anuna is trying to make. The point Anuna is making is
begin with yourself. Peter De Roover from N-VA,
it’s a right party, and he says the tech is not there yet and we need to wait
for the scientists. Even if we reduce CO2 in our country, it wouldn’t change a lot
on the world scale. For each one of your experts
I’ll find another. I remember in the 80s that
Greenpeace had t-shirts, “no time to lose,” so the idea
that we are on the end of the game is something that is typical
for every generation and I don’t think we have to have that fin de siecle or
even fin du monde feeling that is very destructive. The problem is that
politicians don’t get that we need to take
drastic measures. There are plans and the
scientists, they have ideas. It was kind of bullshit. There is a very
international conference and debate on climate change. This event is very important because there are
60 delegates of 20 countries and you really feel, like, united. The 15th, the global
strike is coming up, so this is a great way to just
talk to the other countries about how we’re going to do it and
all the practical stuff like that. So we had a Fridays for
Future Europe meeting and we also met with different
members of the EU Parliament as well to discuss what they could do, and
really to try and get them to listen and say, “This is urgent,
you aren’t doing enough.” So we’re just going to listen and I hope more people will show up
because it’s quite empty. Thank you for this debate. It’s about time, but I think a
lot of people who are here now are getting a bit tired
that people are saying, “Thank you for telling us.” They don’t want thanks,
they want action. We have to put the things
straight on the table. To say that there has been no
action in these five years, these five years has happened
more in climate action than ever. – What do we want?
– Climate justice! – When do we want it?
– Now! -You have no idea.
No idea whatsoever. -Go on, run along
back to school. -Run along now. -Go on, run along.
Nothing to see here. The MEPs that were shouting, “go back
to school” clearly hadn’t listened. It’s just an example of how
young people are being let down by those in power. I wanted to know your reaction
after the debate this morning. How did you feel?
Did you feel deceived? Basically, I feel like a lot of
the politicians in that meeting were saying what they
wanted us to hear, not what they were
actually going to do. In two days, on March 15th,
students are going to strike in at least 68 countries
on all the continents except Antarctica. The time for talking is over. We need them to take action
to stop climate change now. Thank you. -We have to go and
get our train now. -Well done, it was
nice seeing you. -Yeah, I’ll see you soon. -See you guys soon. -Bye bye. We were invited to
sit there and listen and it’s nice that they invited us, but it’s really not
the way it should be because you’re not giving
us a seat at the table. We should just listen
to you, smiling? And now at the press conference,
not one politician was there, so they are not even interested in
how we felt after it, you know? It’s hard. At the moment we’re
just making banners for the protest, which is tomorrow. Everyone is stressed right now
so it’s just about chilling out and being creative and getting ready. UKSCN have written a letter. It’s effectively a challenge to
the political leaders of the UK to ask them to meet with us
and discuss our demands. This is effectively what
we want from striking. We want them to recognise that
as the youth we have the biggest
stake in our future and to incorporate our
views into policymaking. I am doing “respect existence
or expect resistance.” Climate change is a big thing and school educates you but sometimes it just doesn’t
educate you on the right thing. Climate change is not
on the curriculum. I think we need the government to
actually do something about that and this will be one of the
things that will decide what our future will be like. It’s hard to estimate how many
people are going to be there. We had 5,000 in London last time
so I’m really hoping we can get at least 8,000 or
maybe 10,000 out tomorrow. I’m going to write “the sea levels are rising
but the youth are rising faster.” A mixture of threat and
hope in that sign. Climate justice! – When do we want it?
– Now! Today it’s March 15th and right now we have 125
countries and over 2,000 cities in which people are
joining the school strike on all continents
including Antarctica. Young people are saying
that this is enough and that we aren’t willing
to accept this anymore. Good morning from Berlin.
I’m Luisa Neubauer and we’re at the
climate strike today. There’s half an hour to go
and it’s, like, filling up. This is huge. Great that you are all here!
It is 9:50am. And there are so many people here. We are here because we feel betrayed
by the people in that building. There’s a lot of us here and possibly a million students
striking across the world today. We need to hurry because the march
already started. -What?
-Yeah, there were too many people. Put your hood on otherwise
we won’t make it. You’ll keep getting hugs. Everywhere we go – People want to know
– People want to know – Who we are
– Who we are – Where we come from
– Where we come from – So we tell them
– So we tell them – Save the planet
– Save the planet We’re marching, it’s amazing. We’re marching towards
Buckingham Palace! We want change! We want change! We want change! We want change! We want change! 25,000. It’s the biggest climate strike
ever in Germany. Grandma… Let’s take a photo
together for mom. Grandma,
this is your moment to shine. All the cameras are pointing at you. -Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. I was in Strasbourg to oversee how we could coordinate
this internationally and how we would organise ourselves
with the other countries and it’s incredible; the movement is
only growing and for many countries this is still their first strike. It’s only going to grow from here. We are facing an existential crisis. The biggest crisis humanity
has ever faced and yet it has been ignored for decades
by those who knew about it. We are the young, we have not contributed to this crisis. We have just been
born into this world and suddenly there
was a crisis ahead of us that we have to live with. That we’ll have to live with for our
entire lives and our kids, grandkids and all the future generations and
we will not accept it. We won’t let it happen so
that’s why we’re protesting. We strike because we want
a future and we will continue. Empty words and more talking Doesn’t save our climate I think this is just the beginning
of the beginning of the movement. I think we haven’t seen anything yet. We are in the midst of the
sixth mass extinction with up to 200 species becoming
extinct every single day. Erosion, deforestation
of our great forests, toxic air pollution, loss
of insects and wildlife, the acidification of our oceans. These are all disastrous trends
being accelerated by a way of life that we, here in our financially
fortunate part of the world, see as our right to simply carry on. Save our planet!
Save our planet!

  1. Hey Greta, why don't you go to India and talk about climate change, the biggest polluter of the modern world. Go to china and protest about air pollution. Playing with these kids minds, you are not going to stop climate change let alone its been happening since the beginning of time it is happening no matter what, So slow that you will not notice in your lifetime just as evolution. Funny how these idiots will stand in the street but not pick up one piece of trash on the road side, in fact these protest sites, I love to see the trash they left behind. Stay in school and raise your families and if you are that worried about climate change walk to school with a trash bag and pick up litter!

  2. why don't we just first stop using Smartphones first and stop being a commodity fetish asshole and cherish what mother nature has provided us.
    We need to understand the value of nature first then only we can understand the value to protect our nature

  3. This girl and her crew are lier's they drive and ride in gas powered cars and on her supposed green trip to New York 7 of them flew to New York not so green now!

  4. No different from countries who put kids in the front line for propaganda. The climate solution is in innovative solution from education,
    and NOT by shouting out indoctrinated slogans.

  5. Our youth are being brainwashed on a massive scale. They are being programmed to embrace socialist propaganda and eventual totalitarian governance.

  6. Lol 😂 what does a sixteen year old know about climate change ? She’s only been here 5 mins it’s a joke if it wasn’t so sick 🤢 adults teaching young kids to be afraid to live , it’s child abuse plain & simple , she looks so out of place next to her groomers

  7. She looks like the girl in hunger games , don’t worry because if you keep on listening to these perverted scumbags that are frightening the kids by grooming them to be scared of climate change she soon will be featuring in her very own hunger games , it’s sick , how does a 16 year old know anything about climate change when she’s only been on the planet for 5 minutes ? , the only shit they chat is taught to them by these sick individuals that’s actually grooming them , ask about what 5G will do to you before the fake climate change troupe

  8. Its funny cuz most children is the cause for pollution especially those who don't know any better by trashing the place through vandalism and thinking that it'll be too much work to clean up after themselves. If they really care about where they live, it starts with doing the simple tasks first.

  9. Readers should also familiarise with George Soros:

  10. Ignorant, illiterate little girl. And who is encouraging this little girl to do things she knows nothing about? Well, millions of people apparently.
    Watch 'em all shrink back into the shadows when child abuse is proven.
    In any case – does this little girl not have Downs Syndrome?

  11. These kids are being used for the Soylent Green movement for AOC with her new Green Deal, the people burger all wrapped up in a nice package and no more farting cows.

  12. Reducing & eliminating Commuters operating single occupancy vehicles should be the first Goal that we set our sights on. Billions of people actually need a 3 ton machine to move their 150 pound lazy * around every single day? Crying about price of gas that is cheaper than water or milk per volume.
    The best strategy that any of us can come up with is already established and even funded. What I am talking about is a Political Party. The best and safest way to bring about change is not to call for revolution, but putting to use that which has been given to us through our governing body… In Canada with 10 000 signatures you can create a political party which will then entitle your party, as it does to every other party, a grant of up to and over $200 000 in campaign funds each election term of 4 years. I am sure similar criteria applies when creating another American party. If there are only 2 parties and they are both working for the interests of the same corporate OILigarch then the best solution is to create another party in the interests of the people. Could be called the Climate Party or anything you may find more relevant aligned with your agenda. With the unity of the Youth, by the time they are ready to vote the party could become reality. I am sure they would have overwhelming support with guidance from all sides. Noam Chomsky, David Suzuki and other well known social and environmental conservationists could be counselled with further advice from skilled accountants able to create a full budget & a multitude of other reports/data.. I am on the verge of starting one in Canada considering how many in person interactions with individuals I make every day. Delivery industry personnel like messengers could be instrumental in spreading the Party's Message as they are already making all those transactions. Through my own activism I have found it to be very effective in encouraging change by introducing ideas that end up reaching the people in the positions to make change, even small ones like putting Wiarton on the weather map considering that is the home of the Groundhog, a weatherman's mascot. When creating the Party where it says to fill in "owner", insert "The People".

    Small minds talk about other People, Good minds talk about Events, Great minds talk about Ideas.

  13. since the 70s we have been putting more and more water in sealed containers….it can be anything from simple bottled water to dish soaps sports drinks, soups, closed chillers units, antifreeze…the list is very large and goes on

    water is made up of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom….which makes it a molecule …one molecule is what we call vapor….it is only when a bunch of those molecules start clinging together that it is liquid
    the reason this is important is because H2O doesnt act like you think it does…because as it evaporates and becomes a vapor those molecules separate again

    now then…to the climate part
    every cooling system has a certain amount of coolant that is need to keep it at optimum temperature…earth is no different
    for instance take 2 pots of water…one 1/4 full and one all full…..heat them up at the same temperature…..the one that is 1/4 full heats up faster makes steam (humidity) faster

    same for the earth …since all this water is being put in stored containers …it is not circulated …..less H2O molecules in the air….they cant combine to make liquid that can circulate

    right now there are the same amount of H2O molecules on earth as there were in the beginning, so no, those molecules are not gone…they havent went into space….the reason they are gone is because we put them in sealed containers

    so if we deal with the water shortages ….water in sealed containers……then we can deal with the climate heating up

    or we can just wait till some of the ice is melted….yup

    because H2O as a solid doesnt circulate or evaporate till it is melted….once it is melted a little…the ground water and the heat index temps will be back to normal

    as I said…this is unrefined, I wrote it in a hurry to reply to a USA TODAY video on water disappearing

    I have this idea in my head and cant get it out in a coherent way for most people to understand…yes it goes way out there, but it is something that no one else is addressing , the water levels around the globe have decreased…..look at california, all the reservoirs…..michigan residents have stated that nestle has made their ground water drop in their rivers and streams…..there are documentaries on this

    I wish someone would actually look at this because I'm certain this is a big deal

    but as I said…we can just wait for the polar caps to melt and replenish the H2O molecules that are able to circulate
    remember…H2O is just a molecule until it combines with another H2O molecule…then it becomes a gas, then a mist, then moisture, then water…..ask yourself…how many H2O molecules in a visible water drop…the answer is
    there are 1.67 sextillion H2O molecules in a water drop…fact
    https://www.thoughtco.com/atoms-in-a-drop-of-water-609425

    you have to understand that H2O is not water…it is a molecule , and only becomes water when it is combined with a lot of other H2O molecules

    H2O goes through a cycle that is necessary for the earths temperature to remain optimum…when there isnt enough it alters that cycle

    I'm sorry if you people dont understand this, but this is correct

    the good news is, there are plenty of H2O molecules in stasis in the form of ice ….once enough has melted, the earth will go back to its optimum temperature because those molecules have been put back into the cycle

    the hydrologic cycle is the exchange of of energy that influences climate
    when water condenses, it releases energy and warms the environment
    when water evaporates, it takes energy from the surrounding environment, thereby dropping the temperature

  14. spoilt little attention seekers. what will happen to them in 12 years when the future is cooler? will they feel they've been victimised? hahaha

  15. the face of a child being used by adults (just not sexually) and they all drove there or fly.most of their demands should be to shower and remove the grease (the adolescent ones)from their faces ,soap and water will work.any others getting children of the corn vibes ,from thunderbird sounds like she has some mental health issues also from her own admission.

  16. best part is the people in these goups that were placed there by the gov.to subvert and destroy from within ,watch itll be slow but just like BLM and other lettered groups are imploding

  17. Nothing left to protest about except climate change …. then swig from your non recyclable plastic bottles, go home in your petrol cars (Fuel from Saudi Hard line Muslims who dont care about anything about the environment) … and switch on your TVs made in China who dont give flying fig about climate change. All sponsored by teachers who want a day off school Utter nonsense.

  18. stupid kids. U can study and run for a seat or do research to make something that can reduce harm but these fools are just talking and giggling to themselves. most pathetic.

  19. A natural disaster that humana have no control over is a wayyyy bigger threat than climate change. I feel like climate change takes so long to happen amd humans can evolve with changing climates…. i mean look at how we changed during the ice age

  20. More distractions…. did you young folks think about and consider the many weather modification programs? Look up Greta! Played like a fiddle. More lies for the young to gobble up . Shame shame shame…. she learned at 8 huh…
    So many deceived.
    Folks… start your education we’re it started… live birth vs. birth certificate. Your name, life and future was stole from that moment. It’s a bank note. Once you learn the legal name fraud, you will come to realize the fraud which is global warming, o no…. climate change.
    This kind of miseducation is dangerous,!
    Legal name fraud kids…. you are being used, abused, and made a mockery of. Once you learn your slave status, then refocus your energy into real solutions to your enslavement,

  21. 9:54 Exactly what I mean, no solutions, just have a hissy fit for a problem nobody knows how to fix, smh, I hate my generation and its outrage culture

  22. Lol letting 16 year olds vote that’s so hilarious why don’t you guys focus in other problems in Sweden I mean I heard that Sweden care more about middle Easter people and South Africans than your own people

  23. Hate to say it but you can't saved something that isn't meant or be saved. It's not climate change we are experiencing, it's the beginings of the wrath of God on a unrepenting world. Repent and spend eternity on a new Earth with a new heaven.
    Revelation 21 (NIV)
    A New Heaven and a New Earth
    21 Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,”[a] for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. 2 I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. 4 ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’[b] or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
    5 He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”
    6 He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life. 7 Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children. 8 But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”

  24. Remind me how many private jets were flown to the climate conference and how sales on beachfront property like Martha's Vineyard still attracts sales?

  25. Who is the responsible adult that brainwashed this 16-year old child? I believe brainwashing a child with nonsensical lies, just to get the Limelight on some crazy agenda, is nothing less than Child Abuse! Someone should be jailed!

    Also… Right now there are 16K thumbs up to 3.8K thumbs down… My question is… WHO ARE THE 16K IDIOTS?

  26. All this inspired by the Parkland kids. Wow. I love these children, all of them. Bravo! I have stopped eating animals because of them. A small thing? Yes. Everyone, do your small thing. Together we are big.

  27. Global warming is a joke I remember when I was 8 on my birthday (which was in March) I went outside and it was a nice 70 degrees Fahrenheit. I'm 16 and nowadays we get snow until MAY. GLOBAL WARMING IS BULLSHIT. BULLSHIT I SAY.

  28. If Greta told her followers to ditch their Iphones, computers, tablets and other electrical devices to save the planet, she wouldn't be the messiah any more.

  29. Oh no 10 years until the world ends. She’s no scientist just a messenger so she has no idea what she’s talking about only what her puppet masters tell her what to say. Sounds like a cult and an excuse to virtue signal and post on Instagram how awesome you are.

  30. All that protesting is just horrible for the environment. All the trees cut down for that paper the use, all the animals that have been killed for the clothes they wear. Sad 🙁

  31. How about women stop using the dishwasher and start doing the dishes by hand !!! dishwashers consume more water, energy, create heat/steam this causes people to turn on the AC and consume even more energy, laundry should also start being done by hand, this will keep women busy and prevent them from spending so much money buying trash at the malls, this will also reduce the consumption of plastics etc etc etc. Women should also use cotton reusable dippers and learn crochet knitting sewing.

  32. This is a bunch of brainwashing stupidity. Sorry Greta that you’re being used at such a young age by a corrupt establishment who is openly trying to govern every aspect of our lives. We’ve read agenda 21, we’ve read the protocols of Zionism, we’ve seen all your phony bologna politicians. This fake environmentalist movement of little privileged kids throwing tantrum strikes around the world while providing no solutions to the problem they are in such hard protest against. Sorry not falling for this fake news and fake environmentalist movement, not that stupid Vice.

  33. the illuminati are in control of the weather and shit … anything dark and evil u name it … and they hide in plane site but u all are to blind …. eyes wide shut

  34. it's just hard for me to understand how having global strikes and sit-ins will fix the climate? They should just do coordinated dance flash mobs

  35. This girl is just being used by satan to promote a Sunday law. Guys, the real reason for pushing climate change is to force the world to give up one day as a day of rest. The Vatican is pushing this on politicians so “SUNDAY REST “ can become a law for the whole world. The Vatican is using Freemasons to promote this evil agenda so they can get back into power.

  36. Native Americans ancestors and Grandparents have been demanding that Politicians stop polluting the water we drink.To stop using oil that makes cars run.Because it polluts the water for our next generation of children.Every time oil is spill into rivers.Second is chemical plants.Third is plastic that ends up in the ocean.Third world countries should not be alone in the cleaning of their oceans and trash.Because their ocean is our ocean.Third world countries need to be part of a global pollution free country.No ocean should be use to dump sewer dirty water nor trash,nor virus in the water.Everything is connected so,whatever happens in third world countries we are sure to receive believe it.That goes for the iceberg melting at rapid speeds in the North Pole.

  37. what wattage is your shower, I have 3.5 kilowatt. how many baths do you have, all bullshit they don't play there part, idiots, all mouth no action, stupid European ,idiots

  38. These children should be jailed and parents too for this .children should be encouraged to be sterilized to save our planet .too many are now deformed .we only have one planet

  39. Gonna love it when all these zealots can’t have hot showers or play their games on TV etc 😂 might also mention that the leftists and globalists don’t care about kids being vaccinated without a choice! Sounds a bit suss to me but who am I to talk? I’m just an old person who has seen life . Bloody world run by kids! Good one

  40. "I want the public to panic"
    Her words are measured and on point than co called 'politicians' who went to school. She is more mature than those so called 'politicians' will ever be.

  41. You really need to advocate for very specific actions and changes in behaviour. Otherwise it is just noise. You can't just say "Well we are kids, adults have to figure it out". This is about billions of people changing their behaviours, impacting jobs, the economy, trade, immigration. Hey just make it so. Well you have to create the will for such changes. Forget about major changes in sources of energy and CO2 emissions. Just try to convince people to reduce their discretionary energy use for recreation and leisure. Tell people not to fly to Florida to visit amusement parks. Tell them to turn their TV off and not watch football on Sunday. Move sports games to day games to reduce the energy used for lights at sports stadiums. If you can't get them to change their recreation and leisure they aren't going to willingly give up their jobs, and benefits and hope that they can get a new job in the new green economy. These are difficult questions and really difficult behavioural changes.

  42. Canada is in the second week of the federal election. A pollster was on the Ontario public broadcaster and said that climate change was an election issue going into the campaign, but quickly gave way to the economy and jobs. This young activist is in the news cycle now but will be bumped off as soon as we have a more urgent immediate and local emergency.

  43. Why can't they effect change on their own without the politicians? It's pretty simple really. They want to extract your wealth via theft/coercion and a carbon tax to FORCE you to pay for their climate cult project.

  44. I won't take this girl serious until she protest in Qatar and Kuwait who produce the most emission per capita in the world… The fact that the left and the media use children to instill panic upon people is just pure evil.

  45. I'm going to take a week out of my job because I feel very bad about climate change. But please pay me and pay my mortgage and pay my fuel. Thank you.
