Swedish activist Greta Thunberg spoke at the Youth4Climate conference in Milan, Italy, on Tuesday. In her speech, she laughed at the words of world leaders, who have repeatedly promised to solve the climate crisis. She warned that science was not lying and that take-off words alone were not enough.
Eighteen-year-old Greta Thunberg relied on world leaders in her speech at a meeting of young environmental activists in Italy. “Build back better (US President Joe Biden’s plan for a comprehensive overhaul, includes points on ecology, ed. Note) Blah, blah, blah. Green economy. Blah, blah, blah. Zero emissions by 2050. Blah, blah, blah, “Thunberg was upset about the promised solutions.
According to the activist, people only listen to empty words and promises from politicians. “That’s all we hear from our so-called leaders. Words that sound great but haven’t led to action yet. Our hopes and ambitions are drowning in their empty promises,” The Guardian was quoted as saying by Thunberg.

In a speech, Thunberg said that it was, of course, necessary for society to engage in a constructive dialogue with politicians. “But they were 30 years old now, blah, blah, blah, and where did that lead us?” she asked the audience.
“We can no longer let the people in power decide what hope is. Hope is not passive. Hope is not blah blah blah. Hope is telling the truth. Hope is taking action”

The young activist claims that the unfavorable climate situation can still be reversed. “It will require an immediate, drastic annual reduction in emissions. But not if things continue as they do today. The deliberate inaction of our leaders is a betrayal of all present and future generations,” Thunberg warned.
According to the UN, carbon emissions are expected to increase by 16 percent by 2030, rather than halved. This is the reduction needed to keep global warming below the internationally agreed limit of 1.5 degrees Celsius.
