School strike for climate – save the world by changing the rules | Greta Thunberg | TEDxStockholm

Translator: Akinori Oyama
Reviewer: Peter van de Ven When I was about eight years old, I first heard about something
called climate change or global warming. Apparently, that was something
humans have created by our way of living. I was told to turn off
the lights to save energy and to recycle paper to save resources. I remember thinking
that it was very strange that humans, who are
an animal species among others, could be capable of changing
the Earth’s climate. Because if we were,
and if it was really happening, we wouldn’t be talking
about anything else. As soon as you’d turn on the TV,
everything would be about that. Headlines, radio, newspapers, you would never read or hear
about anything else, as if there was a world war going on. But no one ever talked about it. If burning fossil fuels was so bad
that it threatened our very existence, how could we just continue like before? Why were there no restrictions? Why wasn’t it made illegal? To me, that did not add up. It was too unreal. So when I was 11, I became ill. I fell into depression, I stopped talking, and I stopped eating. In two months, I lost
about 10 kilos of weight. Later on, I was diagnosed
with Asperger syndrome, OCD and selective mutism. That basically means I only speak
when I think it’s necessary – now is one of those moments. (Applause) For those of us who are on the spectrum, almost everything is black or white. We aren’t very good at lying, and we usually don’t enjoy
participating in this social game that the rest of you seem so fond of. (Laughter) I think in many ways
that we autistic are the normal ones, and the rest of the people
are pretty strange, (Laughter) especially when it comes to
the sustainability crisis, where everyone keeps saying
climate change is an existential threat and the most important issue of all, and yet they just carry on like before. I don’t understand that, because if the emissions have to stop, then we must stop the emissions. To me that is black or white. There are no gray areas
when it comes to survival. Either we go on
as a civilization or we don’t. We have to change. Rich countries like Sweden
need to start reducing emissions by at least 15 percent every year. And that is so that we can stay
below a two-degree warming target. Yet, as the IPCC
have recently demonstrated, aiming instead for 1.5 degrees Celsius would significantly
reduce the climate impacts. But we can only imagine
what that means for reducing emissions. You would think the media
and every one of our leaders would be talking about nothing else, but they never even mention it. Nor does anyone ever mention the greenhouse gases
already locked in the system. Nor that air pollution is hiding a warming so that when we stop burning fossil fuels, we already have an extra level of warming perhaps as high as
0.5 to 1.1 degrees Celsius. Furthermore does hardly
anyone speak about the fact that we are in the midst
of the sixth mass extinction, with up to 200 species
going extinct every single day, that the extinction rate today is between 1,000 and 10,000 times higher than what is seen as normal. Nor does hardly anyone ever speak about
the aspect of equity or climate justice, clearly stated everywhere
in the Paris Agreement, which is absolutely necessary
to make it work on a global scale. That means that rich countries need to get down to zero emissions
within 6 to 12 years, with today’s emission speed. And that is so that people
in poorer countries can have a chance to heighten
their standard of living by building some of the infrastructure
that we have already built, such as roads, schools, hospitals, clean drinking water,
electricity, and so on. Because how can we expect
countries like India or Nigeria to care about the climate crisis if we who already have everything
don’t care even a second about it or our actual commitments
to the Paris Agreement? So, why are we not reducing our emissions? Why are they in fact still increasing? Are we knowingly causing
a mass extinction? Are we evil? No, of course not. People keep doing what they do because the vast majority
doesn’t have a clue about the actual consequences
of our everyday life, and they don’t know
that rapid change is required. We all think we know,
and we all think everybody knows, but we don’t. Because how could we? If there really was a crisis, and if this crisis was caused
by our emissions, you would at least see some signs. Not just flooded cities,
tens of thousands of dead people, and whole nations leveled
to piles of torn down buildings. You would see some restrictions. But no. And no one talks about it. There are no emergency meetings,
no headlines, no breaking news. No one is acting
as if we were in a crisis. Even most climate scientists
or green politicians keep on flying around the world,
eating meat and dairy. If I live to be 100,
I will be alive in the year 2103. When you think about the future today,
you don’t think beyond the year 2050. By then, I will, in the best case,
not even have lived half of my life. What happens next? The year 2078, I will celebrate
my 75th birthday. If I have children or grandchildren,
maybe they will spend that day with me. Maybe they will ask me about you, the people who were around, back in 2018. Maybe they will ask
why you didn’t do anything while there still was time to act. What we do or don’t do right now
will affect my entire life and the lives of my children
and grandchildren. What we do or don’t do right now, me and my generation
can’t undo in the future. So when school
started in August of this year, I decided that this was enough. I set myself down on the ground
outside the Swedish parliament. I school striked for the climate. Some people say that I
should be in school instead. 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. And why should I be studying for a future
that soon will be no more when no one is doing anything
whatsoever to save that future? And what is the point of learning facts
in the school system when the most important facts given by the finest science
of that same school system clearly means nothing
to our politicians and our society. Some people say that Sweden
is just a small country, and that it doesn’t matter what we do, but I think that if a few children
can get headlines all over the world just by not coming to school
for a few weeks, imagine what we could all do
together if you wanted to. (Applause) Now we’re almost at the end of my talk, and this is where people
usually start talking about hope, solar panels, wind power,
circular economy, and so on, but I’m not going to do that. We’ve had 30 years of pep-talking
and selling positive ideas. And I’m sorry,
but it doesn’t work. Because if it would have, the emissions would have gone down by now. They haven’t. And yes, we do need hope, of course we do. But the one thing we need
more than hope is action. Once we start to act,
hope is everywhere. So instead of looking for hope, look for action. Then, and only then, hope will come. Today, we use 100 million
barrels of oil every single day. There are no politics to change that. There are no rules
to keep that oil in the ground. So we can’t save the world
by playing by the rules, because the rules have to be changed. Everything needs to change, and it has to start today. Thank you. (Applause)

  6. Andre Andre Posted on October 16, 2019 at 5:20 pm

    No question about it. Greta is a gift of the gods and her great spirit tells me the only way to save the earth is to sacrifice greta to the great god Enviro. Take her to the volcano and let her become one with lava. This is the only way to please the angry god Enviro before it unleashes its wrath and destroys us all in 12 years or 10 years depending on who you listen to…

    "we can't save the earth by playing by the rules. the rules have to be changed." ffs why don't you just change the very fabric of the universe while you're at it?

  23. AMC Posted on October 18, 2019 at 8:05 am

    500 scientist just sent the United Nations telling them there is NO CLIMATE EMERGENCY.

    This is about Capital Cronies making money. The earth is Greening. Does anyone talk about that? This girl is being used. Shame on her hippie father and actress mother Exploiting this child. This is Not science it's fraud on the people of the World for the Agenda 21 agenda. Does she know she's advocating for her own death? The Agenda 21 wants 95% of humanity dead. It's set up to enslave humanity. Wake Up People this is a Scam.

    Climate change is a scam. It should be a felony to push global warming lies. Just like Ponzi scheme is a felony.

    200 species going extinct every sing day? That's 73,000 a year. And with thier estimates of only 12 years left, at the 12 year mark if we start today that's 876,000 species extinct. I think this is junk science I'm sorry. Get her off stage and on some meds, this is doing no good for the environmental movement.

  31. This Charming LoveHound Posted on October 18, 2019 at 7:53 pm

  32. Jimmy Johnson Posted on October 18, 2019 at 10:39 pm

    If global warming is melting the polar ice caps and therefore will drown all those living near the oceans coastlines as Obama has said , Why then did Obama this year Just buy a 15 million dollar home to live in at Martha's vineyard on the Pacific oceans Beach. Sorry Greta you have been played.

  33. AS C Posted on October 18, 2019 at 11:18 pm

  34. Bo Rood Posted on October 19, 2019 at 12:15 am

    Why do you deranged libtards keep doing this? Why do you keep putting this emotionally unstable special needs child in front of people, peddling your climate scam? She's having a meltdown each time, you're abusing her.

  35. danny davideos Posted on October 19, 2019 at 1:12 am

    She needs to stop doing her own research on the internet.

  36. danny davideos Posted on October 19, 2019 at 1:20 am

    This girl is soooo wrong she just doesn’t understand emissions I am an emissions inspector in Pennsylvania and we are cutting down so much to the point we have a brand new machine and cars are giving less emissions then ever and Pittsburgh where I live emissions are soo bad from the steel mills back in the day but westmoreland butler and all other county’s surrounding Pittsburgh (Allegheny county) is the only one left that really needs emissions and we’re bringing it down by 50% at least. Trust me the emissions in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia are really hard out here so I don’t know what this girl is talking about. She lives in a different country with even less emissions. The us is taking care of us. The problem comes down to companies in china and places like Tokyo. So anyway these companies are coming to the United States and chopping down trees and ruining the us because why would they care about a place they don’t live.

  37. danny davideos Posted on October 19, 2019 at 1:20 am

    I hate to say it but this girl does need to go to school because straight up how did she learn this much about the climate when no oneactually knows the truth.

  38. Rick Sanchez Posted on October 19, 2019 at 1:59 am

    Save the Earth by not eating meat and paying higher taxes …global warming is far from a crisis, this is just a power grab.

  39. Mark Newman Posted on October 19, 2019 at 2:02 am

    They are increasing because between China and India combined there population growth is 30 million a year! The crisis is over population of the earth. The only way to slow down carbon emissions is by controlling the population growth so science and engineering can catch up! More people = More Energy.

  40. SWAN 3 Posted on October 19, 2019 at 2:10 am

    As a Teacher all I can say is that this little girl is terribly misinformed and it is inappropriate to have a foreigner affect our votes with the Liberal agenda to manipulate Canadians with a Child!!!!!!! This is terrible. Her parents and handlers should be ashamed of themselves using this little girl. It's an example of a SHAMEFUL MISINFORMED CANADA OF FOOLS GOING TO VOTE FOR CORRUPT LIBERAL SOCIALIST GLOBALIST FIENDS. This is absolutely silliness. STOP USING THIS CHILD! My gosh…climate changes people…There is not Crisis in the Climate change. The Crisis is in the Polluters and large corporations continuing to manufacture plastic and other that will never be recycled based on the claims. The is absolute foolishness. Please vote with wisdom and together lets take down the corrupt Liberal Parties through our Votes.  This is Liberal manipulation during a Election for votes so they can continue to mislead and destroy Canada! SHAMEFUL!

  41. Adrián Baráth Posted on October 19, 2019 at 8:31 am

    Yes, we have all the facts and solutions for a better, greener future. Just ask Germany.

    too bad she wouldn't go mute permanently

  50. denken mit gott Posted on October 19, 2019 at 10:47 pm

    Whatever we do (or don´t do) shapes the world around us (the physical world as well as our social environment) and the world inside of us (the soul). Every day, every second.
    We take nothing serious anymore (except for animals and things). This young lady reminds us of the need to be serious again.

    I was taught in school that the climate has been cooling and warming forever. And now the same fools are telling me what the humans are changing the climate. That doesn't add up with me since we haven't been around that long especially driving our cars. So who or what was causing all the other ups and downs in the climate of earth? Or is it just normal cycles that the earth goes through?

  54. Minty Posted on October 20, 2019 at 3:48 am

    what a sad life for a child, this child's life is burnt by her parents, is destroyed by who ever made her say this stuff. she is just a tool.

  57. Vlad The Impaler Țepeș III Posted on October 20, 2019 at 7:35 am

    Hey, Greta. Do yourself a favor and look up (and research extensively) Grand Solar Minimum.
    You've been duped, Greta.

  58. MLMRC.COM Posted on October 20, 2019 at 8:30 am

    I don't get it. Wouldn't the people all the way up in Sweden appreciate a little warmer bump buam, tish

  59. Oscar Li Posted on October 20, 2019 at 9:11 am

    You stopped eating, uh huh. Think about the people in Africa who don’t have any food

  60. Post Man Posted on October 20, 2019 at 10:14 pm

    Change needs to come and she is bringing a light on it. We as a civilization no longer can treat this planet us our toilet. If we want to survive on this Earth drastic measures must happen. We need to put side economic, monetary, political aspirations and see the truth that we are screwed, If things do not change. We need Alternative Energy Solutions we need to stop burning fossil fuels and look towards more sustainable energy solutions. They are out there and we need to implement them immediately into our infrastructure. If we want to exist and survive on this Earth. This is only the beginning?????

  61. Maelin Joli Posted on October 20, 2019 at 11:03 pm

    she could well be a manifestation of the super consciousness of humanity ( the overmind ) . for more on the overmind see Terence McKenna on YouTube

  67. rena arcand Posted on October 21, 2019 at 4:52 am

    she speaks from the heart and the truth about the climate change shes here for a reason an i hope she opens peoples eyes and i hope she changes the world it takes only one person to.god bless you girl.

    Soros is paying her well.

  92. Horn Thon Posted on October 22, 2019 at 6:05 pm

    Je trouve cette jeune dame très courageuse de toucher un sujet qui nous concerne tous l'environnement. L' ignorance et l'argent est la plus grosse erreur qui mènera l'homme à sa perte. Donc si vous voulez vous instruire et prendre conscience de ce qui vous attends à vous et vos future enfants je vous invites à aller regarder ce reportage sur youtube ( Arctique, cimetière atomique.) il y a de quoi être inquiet. Fukushima , Chernobyl, Mayake URSS, Nagasaki, le plastique dans les océans. La disparition des abeilles. La contamination des sols par la radiation en France, Italie etc. La radiation ne ce limite aux frontière.
    Elles ont fait le tour du monde et elle continue à détruire. Alors peut importe qui est cette jeune femme vous ne devriez pas la juger pour ce que l'on dit d'elle. Mais vous devriez plutôt prendre conscience du message qu'elle porte, sauver notre mère la terre. Et nous devrions tous nous concentrez à sauver notre terre plutôt que de perdre notre temps à aller dans l'espace. Nous ne vivrons pas assez longtemps pour aller vivre sur une autre planète de toute façon. Et si nos technologie évoluent pour dépolluer alors là, nous aurons aussi la technologie pour rendre une autre planète habitable. Et nous serons aussi intelligent pour la respecter.
