Kids are rallying behind Greta Thunberg’s banner. She is bringing unity to the world. She is bringing peace.
Experts are cautious, but bookies have tipped teenage climate campaigner Greta Thunberg for the Nobel Peace Prize next week.
Odds from bookmakers such as Ladbrokes suggest the 16-year-old activist is the one to beat for the award, just a week after she launched a furious tirade at international delegates during a UN climate summit.
The teenager provoked controversy with her angry speech at the UN and was dragged into a Twitter feud with US President Donald Trump.
Russian President Vladimir Putin also criticised her yesterday for what he said was a failure to understand the complex modern world.
During her presentation, she roared ferociously at delegates: ‘How dare you?! You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words, yet I’m one of the lucky ones. People are suffering, people are dying, entire ecosystems are collapsing.’
‘And if you choose to fail us, I say, we will never forgive you,’ she added.
The 16-year-old also broke down in tears of rage during her verbal onslaught.
Of course she cried. Because of Climate Change, she won’t be able to grow up and have the future she deserves, and people were just sitting there looking at her as if she enjoyed being there.
What more proof do people need of the fact that Climate Change has stolen her future than the fact that she’s unable to grow properly despite being almost 17?
She isn’t growing because she has nothing to grow into, you bigots! Climate Change has taken her adulthood away from her!
Thunberg won Amnesty International’s highest honour earlier this month and bookies reckon this will follow through, bagging her the highest acclaim for a peace keeping.
However, the prediction carries a great deal of uncertainty, since the list of candidates isn’t made public and experts are still divided over whether climate and violent conflict can be directly linked.
‘What she has done over the past year is extraordinary,’ said Dan Smith, the director of Stockholm international peace research institute SIPRI.
‘Climate change is an issue which is strongly related to security and peace.’
Let’s not forget that most schools, in most places where these climate walkouts happened, allowed and encouraged students to go out and protest the weather. If anything, Greta walked the path that was presented to her.
But it seems that one man’s pawn is another man’s queen.
Despite the fact that it is pretty clear that Greta Thunberg is a pawn, there is no denying that she is a very dedicated pawn.
She may or may not win the Nobel Peace Prize, but the real question is…
Will Queen Greta be the Queen of the UN World Government?
Pushing these “global problems” is a strategy for people to ask for global solutions. Alien invasion? Unite to face the threat! Planet burning because of Climate Change? Unite to face the threat! Poverty in non-white countries? Open borders and unite to fight off poverty!
The overlords would really benefit from unifying the world before America loses its ability to act as their enforcer.
Here’s a transcript from her famous UN speech:
This is all wrong. I shouldn’t be standing here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean. Yet you all come to me for hope? How dare you! You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words. And yet I’m one of the lucky ones. People are suffering. People are dying. Entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are in the beginning of a mass extinction. And all you can talk about is money and fairytales of eternal economic growth. How dare you!
For more than 30 years the science has been crystal clear. How dare you continue to look away, and come here saying that you are doing enough, when the politics and solutions needed are still nowhere in sight.
You say you ‘hear’ us and that you understand the urgency. But no matter how sad and angry I am, I don’t want to believe that. Because if you fully understood the situation and still kept on failing to act, then you would be evil. And I refuse to believe that.
The popular idea of cutting our emissions in half in 10 years only gives us a 50% chance of staying below 1.5C degrees, and the risk of setting off irreversible chain reactions beyond human control.
Maybe 50% is acceptable to you. But those numbers don’t include tipping points, most feedback loops, additional warming hidden by toxic air pollution or the aspects of justice and equity. They also rely on my and my children’s generation sucking hundreds of billions of tonnes of your CO2 out of the air with technologies that barely exist. So a 50% risk is simply not acceptable to us – we who have to live with the consequences.
To have a 67% chance of staying below a 1.5C global temperature rise – the best odds given by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change – the world had 420 gigatonnes of carbon dioxide left to emit back on 1 January 2018. Today that figure is already down to less than 350 gigatonnes. How dare you pretend that this can be solved with business-as-usual and some technical solutions. With today’s emissions levels, that remaining CO2 budget will be entirely gone in less than eight and a half years.
There will not be any solutions or plans presented in line with these figures today. Because these numbers are too uncomfortable. And you are still not mature enough to tell it like it is.
You are failing us. But the young people are starting to understand your betrayal. The eyes of all future generations are upon you. And if you choose to fail us I say we will never forgive you. We will not let you get away with this. Right here, right now is where we draw the line. The world is waking up. And change is coming, whether you like it or not.
