Global climate injustice

"We can't have this continued world of oppression that is driving climate catastrophe." This is why Friends of the Earth say richer nations like the UK should bail out countries already suffering the effects of climate change.

    It's not bad to help those who are feeling repercussions of climate change. However just because one lives in a low-income country does not mean one is not contributing to climate change. If the countries get help, they should also show their actions by doing their share....are people, including the leaders driving around in big vehicles, are they cleaning up their rivers from polluting industries, are they installing and paying for air conditioners everywhere, have they made and enforce plastic bans, are they protecting their forests and using sustainably....they also need to be accountable....

    its very strange that the climate-changers, don't quite see the link to WAR as a root to all climate degeneration. Mining the world too, required to get the metals for jails, weapons, rockets and space-platforms, contributes so much to climate destruction that it is difficult to underestimate it. The media spins all issues so as to render them inconsequencial. Please JOIN the END WAR FOREVER movement and strengthen the climate movement!

    Exploring the manipulation and exploitation of children for political and financial gain! Greta and her parents are mouthpieces for the U.N.

    I think the U.K has enough debts and problems, environmental and other to seriously worry about right now.

    What started the earth warming to trigger the end of the last ice age? Are these factors still in play? What percentage of the earth warming can be directly attributed to man?

    The big corporations who indiscrimenately ravage the earth will not lose a dollar in the cleanup process....everyone fight for climate change...that's a good thing....but it's becoming a part of the agenda now...and one way or another...we the people will be paying....

    The idea is good, but we need to keep in mind that the "global south" is normally ruled by very, very corrupt governments. We need to find a way to transfer knowledge, science and technology to the people in these countries. Just money is not enough, ergo what's going on in the Amazon.

    Climate inequality? Climate doesn't discriminate. It affects all people in all places.

    It’s clear this guy doesn’t understand the first thing about economics but bless his idealistic heart.
