00:37

blah

00:41

this is all we hear from our so-called

00:44

leaders

00:45

words

00:47

words that sound great

00:50

but so far

00:51

has led to no action

00:55

our hopes and dreams drown in their

00:58

empty words and promises

01:01

of course we need constructive dialogue

01:03

but they've now had 30 years of blah

01:05

blah blah and where has that led us

01:09

over 50 percent of all our co2 emissions

01:12

have occurred since 1990

01:14

and a third since 2005.

01:18

all this while the media is reporting on

01:20

what the leaders say that they are going

01:22

to do instead of what they are actually

01:24

doing

01:26

and then not holding leaders accountable

01:28

for their action or rather inaction

01:31

and don't get me wrong we can still do

01:33

this

01:34

change is not only possible but urgently

01:36

necessary

01:38

right now we are still very much

01:40

speeding in the wrong direction

01:43

2021 is currently projected to

01:45

experience the second highest emission

01:47

rise ever

01:50

only about two percent of government

01:52

recovery spendings have been allocated

01:55

to clean energy measures

01:57

and according to a new report by the un

02:00

global emissions are expected to rise by

02:02

16 by 2030 compared to 2010 levels

02:08

our leaders intentional lack of action

02:11

is a betrayal towards all present and

02:14

future generations

02:17

the people in power cannot claim that

02:19

they are trying

02:20

because they are clearly not

02:23

if this is what they consider to be

02:25

climate action then we don't want it

02:28

they invite cherokee young people to

02:31

meetings like this to pretend that they

02:33

are listening to us

02:35

but they are not

02:36

they are clearly not listening to us

02:39

and they never have just look at the

02:41

numbers

02:43

look at the statistics the emissions are

02:46

still rising

02:47

the science doesn't lie

02:51

but

02:52

of course we can still turn this around

02:55

it is entirely possible it will take

02:57

drastic annual emission cuts unlike

03:00

anything the world has ever seen

03:02

and as we don't have the technological

03:04

solutions that alone can deliver

03:06

anything close to that that means we

03:08

will have to change

03:11

we can no longer let the people in power

03:13

decide what is politically possible or

03:15

not

03:16

we can no longer let the people in power

03:18

decide what hope is

03:21

hope is not passive

03:23

hope is not blah blah blah

03:26

hope

03:27

is telling the truth

03:29

hope is taking action and hope always

03:33

comes from the people

03:44

did you hear me what do we want

03:48

when do we want it

03:50

what do we want

03:53

when do we want it

03:55

the leaders like to say we can do this

03:58

they obviously don't mean it but we do

04:01

we can do this

04:03

i'm absolutely convinced that we can

04:05

but it starts with the people it starts

04:08

with facing the reality of the situation

04:10

as uncomfortable as it may be

04:29

you
