Greta Thunberg says world leaders are running out of time to tackle climate emergency

"I want you to panic. I want you to act as if our house is on fire. Because it is."  Thunberg said.


What are these worthless politicians doing? We need to allocate all the resources necessary to address this crisis. We will be a cinder before they get off their lazy asses.

"I know you don't want to talk about this," Greta Thunberg said, before adding that she intends to keep repeating herself until the appropriate action is taken.

Her comments come as policymakers and business leaders arrive in Switzerland for the start of the WEF's four-day annual conference, with those in attendance scheduled to focus on the intensifying climate crisis.

It follows the hottest year on record for the world's oceans, the second-hottest year for global average temperatures and wildfires from the U.S. to the Amazon to Australia.

DAVOS, Switzerland — Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg told policymakers at the World Economic Forum (WEF) on Tuesday that time is running out to effectively tackle an intensifying climate crisis.

Speaking during a panel session entitled "Forging a Sustainable Path Towards a Common Future," the 17-year-old cited the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report from 2018 as she delivered prepared remarks to a packed audience.

The IPCC report states the remaining carbon budget would need to fall below 570 gigatons of carbon dioxide (CO2) over the coming years if the world is to have a 67% chance of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

But, Thunberg said: "With today's emissions levels, the remaining budget is gone in less than eight years. These aren't anyone's views. This is the science."

"I've been repeating these numbers at nearly every speech I've given for the last 18 months."

 She was recently named Time Magazine's Person of the Year for 2019 after sparking an international wave of school strikes — also known as "Fridays for Future." Last year, millions of children took part in rallies around the world to protest against political inaction over climate change.

When asked to reflect on what, if anything, had improved in recent years, Thunberg replied: "In one aspect, lots has happened that no one could have predicted."

"The climate and the environment is a hot topic right now and a lot of that is thanks to young people pushing," Thunberg said Tuesday.

"But, of course, if you see it from another perspective, pretty much nothing has been done since the global emissions of CO2 (have) not reduced. That, of course, is what we are trying to achieve among other things."

"It will require much more than this. This is just the very beginning," she added.

Is mocking the handicapped a favorite pastime of cons?


Autism is not the same as retardation.
