the choir We know that all of this is going to hell in a handbasket We just don t know how to stop it 1 star for wrongly stating that we have all solutions today And at another point rambling about thinking cathedrally We don t have all the necessary solutions in place and we are already quite cathedral thinking , thank you so much 1 star for wrongly choosing the auditory The influencers and politicians and random public are not the people that actually can do something It s not about Trump being difficult or Merkel being lazy or some influencer evangelist Nico or Mary or whoever from I don t care where influencing people about lipstick and shoes instead of climate change It s the scientists who should catch the ball, not about being alarmist but rather about having solutions We don t have all the necessary tech clean energy, wasteless processes, zero footprint food, etc invented and implemented Almost nothing today is zero carbon footprint no matter what the scientists might claim 1 star for being illiterate and subjecting public to her illiterate rants about stuff way above Greta s very limited skills Going to school and getting some education to be able to actually do something useful might be a way to remedy this how about inventing some new energy sources clean and applicable everywhere , Greta The end result is 1 star Which, frankly, is very generous for this original ish but pointless rant collection.Q Last summer, climate scientist Johan Rockstr m and some other people wrote that we have at most three years to reverse growth in greenhouse gas emissions if we re going to reach the goals set in the Paris Agreement.Over a year and two months have now passed, and in that time many other scientists have said the same thing and a lot of things have got worse and greenhouse gas emissions continue to increase So maybe we have even less time than the one year and ten months Johan Rockstr m said we have left.If people knew this they wouldn t need to ask me why I m so passionate about climate change.If people knew that the scientists say that we have a 5 per cent chance of meeting the Paris target, and if people knew what a nightmare scenario we will face if we don t keep global warming below 2 C, they wouldn t need to ask me why I m on school strike outside parliament c People know that, Greta They aren t illiterate dolts, unlike what you think.Q Because if everyone knew how serious the situation is and how little is actually being done, everyone would come and sit down beside us c Right Because so many things are solved by sitting down in the middle of the street I m kidding Spoiler they never are You have to get your ass up and do things invent cleaner energy and implement it afterwards, everywhere Have fun not Q When I was about eight years old, I first heard about something called climate change, or global warming c You shouldn t have stopped developing your skills at that point Today you would ve been able to make sense and maybe some impact In 2 years you ll be 18, adult and no one will think you cutesy any They ll just relabel you to, well, problematic and will be done with you Q I think in many ways that we autistic are the normal ones and the rest of the people are pretty strange c There are no normal people Whatever spectrum or neuromake up.Q If the emissions have to stop, then we must stop the emissions c No shit Sherlock How How would you effing live without the computer you printed this BS on, without shoes you wear, without sandwitches you eat, without trains and boats and planes and cars and everything you use to move from point A to point B, without the meds that help you or not Try growing some grain to make it into bread and you ll see what s wrong with this idea and why it s so stupid.Q Either we go on as a civilization or we don t Either we choose to go on as a civilization or we don t c We aren t much of a civilization, frankly If an illiterate teen is made into some saint maybe we should just stop existing and pave the way to someintellectually developed civilisation I say either Greta goes to school, finally, or we don t How about that Civilization strike, anyone Q Are we evil No, of course not c Of course we are Don t kid yourself.Q No one is acting as if we were in a crisis I don t want you to be hopeful.I want you to panic.I want you to feel the fear I feel every day c So, we are supposed to act like we are in some crisis Like, scream and run randomly about doing nothing Is that the illustrious course of action we are supposed to undertake Q Even most green politicians and climate scientists go on flying around the world, eating meat and dairy c Even your sailors do.Q Some people say that I should study to become a climate scientist so that I can solve the climate crisis But the climate crisis has already been solved.We already have all the facts and solutions All we have to do is to wake up and change c Optimistic much You re misinformed, Greta Go learn some Georgaphy and Economics and Physics There are no viable generally applicable solutions Q But I think that if a few children can get headlines all over the world just by not going to school for a few weeks, imagine what we all could do together if we wanted to c Get a billion of headlines or what Q The real power belongs to the people c Too bad it s not brainpower.Q We know that most politicians don t want to talk to us Good, we don t want to talk to them either We want them to talk to the scientists instead c Finally Some practioners needed not theoreticians You basically need to change everything in our economies And you don t need to talk about climate You need to talk about how our billions of people can live without changing it There s the rub Q I write my own speeches I often ask for input I also have a few scientists that I frequently ask for help on how to express certain complicated matters c Uh huh So large chunks of this stuff are what adults tell her Q During the last six months I have travelled around Europe for hundreds of hours in trains, electric cars and buses, repeating these life changing words over and over again But no one seems to be talking about it c Actually, people are It would have beennature oriented not to do that.Q We children are not sacrificing our education and our childhood for you to tell us what you consider is politically possible in the society that you have created c Go and create a better one Be my guest Q Avoiding climate breakdown will require cathedral thinking We must lay the foundation while we may not know exactly how to build the ceiling c That s a very bad analogy York Minster Cathedral 252 years to build Sagrada Famiglia Work in progress since 1882 If so, we are doing just fine with the climate, relax We are thinking quite cathedrally already, stumbling about at random Basically, in a world in which a great number of policy makers are loosing their marbles 16 year old Greta Thunberg is demanding of those

Emergency An immense increase of scale in endeavors to conserve our biosphere is needed to avoid untold suffering due to the climate crisis The climate crisis has arrived and is accelerating faster than most scientists expected It issevere than anticipated, threatening natural ecosystems and the fate of humanity Especially worrisome are potential irreversible climate tipping points and nature s reinforcing feedbacks atmospheric, marine, and terrestrial that could lead to a catastrophic hothouse Earth, well beyond the control of humans These climate chain reactions could cause significant disruptions to ecosystems, society, and economies, potentially making large areas of Earth uninhabitable This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution NonCommercial ShareAlike 3.0

gonna hate It can not be put into words how great this movement is Nobody has so far been able to positively mobilize the youth of the 21st century to such an extent Spotlighting the topics of climate change, environmental degradation and the stupidity of the economy, as trivialized by the leading media To describe the positive could fill volumes But now to the haters, who unfortunately still have not learned or understood anything crucial.The cheap methodology used by civil trolls or trolls who elected trolls against Fridays for future is ridiculous and abject Similar tendencies come from the camps of resigned, frustrated, dissatisfied conservatives They do not like activism, enthusiasm or the smallest amount change Ugh, that s terrible for them So they say things like inner viewShe is too young and politicians have acquired their offices through competence.She would enrich herself and be a puppet of her parents.She would be too cheeky and presumptuous toward authorities.She does not write the speeches alone.She is so dedicated and full of life I, on the other hand, am bitter, internally dead and therefore jealous, but I do not want to admit that, so I hate it She uses mass transit.She is a woman And I m a misogynist, but I m not allowed to live it out any like in the good old times, just like my homophobia, Islamophobia, stupid liberal, progressive, She talks about complex things that I do not understand I would have to make an effort, learn and read, to understand, to revise my worldview Etc What differentiated and substantiated criticism Funny that these are the same people who refuse bitter truths as conspiracy theories They are so castrated in their thinking that they barely notice anything happening around them, let alone in the world But when it comes to ranting against a dedicated icon of teenagers, spraying hatred against a young woman, they are great and big and strong They crawl in front of their political icons and ideologies, but against Greta, they suddenly dare to open their mouth And look at their change of heart First, they rant about the indifferent, just consuming, dumb youth, those smombies with their devices Their own voting behavior is to copy what mommy, daddy and the coworkers choose, but ok As soon as the youth begins to put their finger into the sore, stinking sepsis of a wound inflicted on the planet with the help of their ignorance, the joviality mode is activated Pat, Pat Don t rack your hollow brains full of fake news, do not fill them with the lies of Nobel laureates except economics , scientists and leading luminaries, fill them with mass media as we do What does the FOX say As always, revolutions begin when youth begins to be interested in politics Fortunately, the classic indoctrination mantra, Give them to us when they are still young and we have them forever gets a positive connotation in the present ago Not one of the moronic ideologies of the past, but a movement focused on science, humanism and sustainability Instead of blind obedience, absurd statutes and pseudo sciences such as economics, participation in lived democracy, freedom to participate and a foundation of genuine, hard science It is invaluable how many people is given hope and confidence for a better future by Greta and Fridays for future That civil society has finally begun to rise up against the boundless ignorance, incompetence, stupidity, greed, corruption, etc of politics It would exceed the possible length for reviews several times to complete that list I would go so far as to say that her leitmotif goes beyond the ones of other worthy activists, human rights activists, environmentalists Because the planet, the climate, the survivability in the future affects us all land not just a fragment of the whole An important fragment for sure, but just a part Because a young person managed to wake up an entire generation It s literally high time, but not too late to continue her consistent optimism And it s just the start, the beginning of something big, unprecedented Thanks to the digital possibilities, everyone around the world can be part of it So that all the strengths, competencies, interests and abilities of young cosmopolitans flow together And that gives me optimism about the future, the only possible option unless one wants to sicken one s mind with the plumes of the dark side PS Please economists, predicts the next crisis An exact science can certainly extrapolate with a transparent, understandable, logical formula Otherwise, Alfred Nobel would surely have opposed that you have a Nobel Prize at all Oh, he has and never wanted to have one Did not think that was a real science and just dangerous charlatanry, did you know The Nobel Prize for Economics came later, why oh why, funded by the Swedish Central Bank Pleasant, likable guys like Friedrich Hayek and Milton Friedman got it for their great, still perfect working concepts Do you see it today everywhere Neoliberalism, jay, sunshine and lollypops Fully objective and impartial criteria for the awards too As if actors awarded themselves for the Oscars Or politicians medals to themselves Or clergymen canonize themselves Dear children of economics, please become reasonable at last Stop playing with the gross national product and throwing inflation and deflation at each other, that could hurt an eye And then, when you are afraid and don t know what to do, you run to the central bank Behave like adults instead, it s never too late to learn something substantial Everyone is special, even you And how sweet that you keep saying, The market, deregulation , all the time, it s lovely Please stand between the backlashers and political extremists, next to the religious fanatics, for the group photo Well, smile now and say Trickle down theory Thank you, and now inside the history books with you, swift, swift to the anachronisms.The paradigm shift will sweep you away as an unfortunate footnote.A wiki walk can be as refreshing to the mind as a walk through nature in this completely overrated real life outside books We cannot solve a crisis without treating it as a crisis.To all of you who choose to look the other way every day because you seemfrightened of the changes that can prevent catastrophic climate change than the catastrophic climate change itself.Your silence is almost worst of all.The future of all the coming generations rests on your shoulders.Those of us who are still children can t change what you do now once we re old enough to do something about it.So please,

Unpopular opinion alert I absolutely hated this little book It is a collection of Greta s speeches, but they are all extremely dull to read, and various paragraphs are repeated over and over in different speeches This does not mean I find her uninspiring or that I don t believe in climate change, I 1000% do But this book is absolutely not the way to go if you want to convince people of your

but since this is a book it would have made it muchinteresting if we gotbackground info on the claims she is making, and the locations background info on the speeches themselves, e.g telling the readers a little about the situation and why she was going to speech at a certain location and why that day etc.I don t recommend this book at all Don t give this to climate skeptics and don t give this to people that are on the fence, this will not convince them of the realness or the urgency of the problem unfortunately My review got posted on Plant Based News the world s leading website for

My review got posted on Plant Based News the world s leading website for vegan news, exciting timesHomo Sapiens have not yet failed Yes, we are failing, but there is still time to turn everything around We can still fix this We still have everything in our own handsIt s been a long time since I felt any hope Year in year out we seem to only get worse as a species More andincompetent leaders are elected into positions of power and we push the planet further and further to collapse and nothing seems to give yet, these words give me hope Greta Thunberg gives me hope And that s important The future has not yet been written and there is time enough to prevent the chaos that is coming our way Greta Thunberg is an inspiring activist, a leader and a voice the world so desperately needs This book collects her speeches to date, and they are all very powerful and convincing She wants us to panicthan she wants us to feel hope she wants us to recognise what is happening so we can act and prevent any destruction We need to wise up and take greater responsibility for our actions We need to become vegans and minimise our environmental impact We need to start caring Language is so important, calling what we face by its true name is the key This is the strongest element of her rhetoric her simple and mature ability to rationalise and address the problem at hand the environmental crisis Because that s exactly what we face She has called adults out on their irresponsibility and complete lack of foresight at the European Economic Social Committee earlier on this year, calling those in attendance irresponsible children Her words work towards shaming our so called leaders and governments that are tasked with protecting the welfare of their nations But what s the point if none of these nations have a future It takes the words of a child the words of the future generation to get people to listen and they certainly have had a rippling effect on an international level She s been nominated for the noble peace prize this year and if she won, she d be the first vegan to do so which would be a tremendous victory for the movement I think she really deserves it for the interest and attention her words have given the environmental crisis we face She has a striking ability to get to the heart of the matter and is without a doubt one of the most influential people of the 21st century I also love how she embraces her Asperger s and celebrates the strengths it has granted her, calling it a gift rather than a hindrance In my experience, autistics are always remarkable people So, this is a great little book full of encouraging words and hope, hope that this planet will one day have a future if the world listens and starts caring Greta Thunberg does, indeed, prove the sentiment her book title evokes No One Is Too Small to Make a Difference You can connect with me on social media via My Linktree some people say that i should study to become a climate scientist so that i can solve the climate crisis but the climate crisis has already been solved we already have all the facts and solutions all we have to do is to wake up and changecontinuing my tradition of starting off the new year with some words of action and much needed inspiration see last year.i heard about greta thunberg so much towards the end of last year, but i never watched or read any of her speeches i shouldntsome people say that i should study to become a climate scientist so that i can solve the climate crisis but the climate crisis has already been solved we already have all the facts and solutions all we have to do is to wake up and changecontinuing my tradition of starting off the new year with some words of action and much needed inspiration see last year.i heard about greta thunberg so much towards the end of last year, but i never watched or read any of her speeches i shouldnt be so surprised that someone so young can radiate such passion for an important cause.what i really like is the consistent message across all of her speeches, which is that she understands the importance of not waiting for political action to fight against the climate crisis yes, changing policy is important on a global level, but we can also make a difference locally and in our personal lives this article lists many small ways we can alter our lifestyle in order to live in aeco friendly manner i definitely will be implementing these suggestions to my own living this year so heres to 2020, a new year, a new decade, where we can choose to make a difference, protect our planet, and ensure our home is around habitable for future generations to come PS for those interested, here are links to the text and video of her speech at the UN climate change conference 4.5 stars
