What Global Climate Activists Are Demanding

Over 500 young activists gathered at the United Nations to propose radical action to fight the climate crisis. This is what they want. 👇

Youth Climate Summit Green Ticket Winners

More than 500 young activists got together at the UN to demand radical action on climate change. 100 “Green Ticket” winners who demonstrated commitment to climate action and problem solving were chosen from around the world to attend the first ever UN Youth Climate Summit. The winners are now looking to share their message and initiate action. It came days before a climate action summit which UN chief Antonio Guterres has called to seek greater commitments from world leaders on reducing their greenhouse gas emissions in line with the Paris accord to avert runaway global warming.

Thunberg, whose protests outside Sweden’s parliament last year sparked the global youth movement, spoke first but briefly, saying she wanted to give more time to others. “Millions of people across the globe marched and demanded real climate action, especially young people. We showed that we are united and that we young people are unstoppable,” Greta Thunberg tells a large crowd in NYC. Masses of children skipped school to join global strikes that Thunberg said were “only the beginning” of the movement. Green Ticket winners Lalita Anousha Purbho-Junggee, CĂŽme Girschig, Jackson Zhao, Vania Santoso and Jorge MartĂ­nez PĂ©rez Tejada all stated their environmental plights to highlight the case of climate change of their respected countries.

Activists at the gathering demanded money for a fund to help poorer nations adapt to a warming world and provide greener energy. They also insisted that the world should wean itself quickly from coal, oil and gas, linked to climate change. During Thunberg’s short lifetime, for example, Earth has already warmed 0.6 degrees Fahrenheit (0.34 degrees Celsius). After listening to Thunberg and other youth climate activists, Secretary-General Antonio Guterres credited young people with transforming him from a pessimist to an optimist in the fight against global warming.

    Fucking clowns. I wonder how many of these losers have a science degree. If they really want to do something about the planet, they must be getting science degrees to optimize energy and water usage.

    I don't understand why many people invented words that Greta said,when she said at the beginning of her discourse at the UN "This is Wrong I don't suppose to be here y would like to be at school" and now they talking that she likes to be famous and lots of rubbish just because is a Girl and Young.They say she is an ALARMIST! My God ! Al Gore the ex-president of US in a TV program in Australia,that when he was at University in the 50s one of his professors was talking about problems with the ENVIRONMENT.Greta is sixteen but since twelve she's studying everything she could to understand the severity of the situation.How Dare! You!!!!

    You know why it will be a disaster? Cause all they do is whine and cry for someone to do something rather than actually doing something. Instead of showing up with Starbucks and picket signs and plastic confetti and... for fuck sake... twerking for climate change? How about they actually clean some garbage up maybe plant some trees. Imagine if they showed up to clean instead of trashing an area.

    "The state must declare the child to be the most precious treasure of the people. As long as the government is perceived as working for the benefit of the children, the people will happily endure almost any curtailment of liberty and almost any deprivation." - Adolf Hitler
