“Failure”, “PR-Show”, “Ploplabla” – Tunberg resolved at the World Climate Conference
Swedish activist Greta Tunberg also took part in the climate protests in Glasgow. He described the UN climate conference as a “PR event”. Thousands of people took her to the streets.
D.At a large demonstration on the sidelines of the World Climate Conference in Glasgow, climate activist Greta Dunberg accused the nations of the world of being inactive in the fight against the climate crisis. It is no secret that COP26 is a “failure”, Sweden said on Friday in George Square in the center of the Scottish city. “It should be clear that a crisis cannot be solved using the same methods we received in the first place.”
In the presence of thousands of protesters, the 18-year-old accused state and government leaders of working to emotionally maintain the status quo and continue to exploit people and nature and destroy future living conditions. “Leaders do nothing – they create holes and structure to take advantage of themselves and continue to benefit from this destructive system.”
The UN Climate Change Conference has become a “public relations event” while governments in rich countries continue to refuse to take drastic climate action. “His main goal seems to be to continue to fight for the situation,” Dunberg said, repeating the criticism he had already made the previous day on Twitter: “This is no longer a climate conference. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah ”.
Africa, Asia and South America are feeling the effects of the climate crisis
Before Tunberg, many climate defenders from poorer parts of the world spoke on stage. They come from countries in Africa, Asia and South America, where the effects of the climate crisis are already strongly felt – these countries, with their very low emissions, have contributed significantly less than most rich countries to climate change. Such as Germany and Great Britain and the United States.
Mitzi Jonelle Tan of the Philippines said, “At this UN climate summit, we see politicians again making big words and making big promises. Should. “
Kenyan activist Elizabeth Waduthi called on rich countries in particular to live up to their “historic responsibility.” “So far they haven’t done that.” Environmental groups have repeatedly criticized the fact that governments in rich countries in particular have failed to deliver on their climate promises in the past.
Earlier, Dunberg marched with thousands of protesters through Glasgow, where the World Climate Conference COP26 has been taking place for more than a week. There, about 200 countries are still struggling to figure out how to achieve the goal of controlling global warming to 1.5 degrees. According to the plans submitted by the states up to the summit, the world is heading towards 2.7 degrees with its current plans – with catastrophic consequences. The conference concludes on November 12th.
