Greta Thunberg at #UNGA: "This is all wrong. I shouldn’t be up here. I should be in school on the other side of the ocean. Yet you come to us young people for hope. How dare you. You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words."

Greta "drag them sis" Thunberg
 
A smart, salty kid who is FED UP with the bullshit and wants us to know it? I have no choice but to stan.
 
Tired: Give Carly Rae Jepsen a sword

Wired: Give Greta Thunberg a guillotine
 
I love this kid so much. She’s punk af.
 
English isn’t even her first language and she’s a child, yet here she articulates to the world, with a clarity few adults reach in a lifetime, the most important message for humanity. Thank you @GretaThunberg I support you and am with you 🙏🏼💜

It's astounding how many #Conservatives on here are convinced that #GretaThurnberg absolutely MUST be somebody's puppet, that she couldn't possibly be thinking for herself or have her very own passionate views on ... well ... anything. Are their own kids so careless and stupid?
 
It's worth noting that it's 90 degrees on the first day of fall in New York City where @GretaThunberg delivered this stirring address.
 
"You say you hear us and that you understand the urgency, but no matter how sad and angry I am I do not want to believe that, because if you really understood the situation and still kept on failing to act then you would be evil and that I refuse to believe."@GretaThunberg

"If you really understood the situation and still kept on failing to act, then you would be evil -- and that I refuse to believe."

@GretaThunberg's rousing "how dare you" speech at #UNGA.

What incredible eloquence.
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
It breaks my heart to see her passion and her desperation met with condescension. She is expressing an anger and a fear that demands our attention and she is getting pats on the head and patronizing “aww how cute” media clips. She’s not selling candy bars to save the whales.
 
It turns out Greta Thunberg is also one hell of a writer. Damn.
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
I love that @GretaThunberg doesn’t give a SHIT about a Nobel Prize & the empty words of those with power & influence. She’s 100% moral clarity.
 
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
The use of this child to advance a political agenda is one of the more disturbing things I’ve seen in years.
 
Listen to her voice shake. That’s rage. Every woman who has ever cried because they’re fucking furious and don’t know where else to put it should recognize the sound of this young woman’s voice.
 
Listen. Greta is not here to play.
 
Stop right now, take a minute out of your day and watch this.

We are tired of warm words and being told that people "understand" our concerns.

Everything needs to change and it needs to change now.

Anyone who's taken a position counter to what you hear below is going to have to spend the next few years crawling backwards out of that position with regret & embarrassment as it becomes more & more obvious that she's right. Good luck explaining to your kids how you sold em out.
 
Oh she went right for their NECK
 
This is so brave and so true. She shouldn't have to be doing this, but here she is.
 
Greta is an entrepreneur. She sees the biggest problem humankind has ever faced and, instead of waiting for others to fix it, she decides to do whatever she can to address it. She throws herself fully into it, sacrificing everything to pursue her mission. Hats off! Listen! Act!
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
If the Bible was rewritten today, Greta would be Jesus and Trump the anti-Christ.
 
The more I hear from @GretaThunberg, the more I'm perfectly happy to ignore her.

She sounds like a spoiled teenager.
 
Greta did not come to play
 
 
“...and all you can talk about is money, and fairytales of eternal economic growth.” -@GretaThunberg spoke truth to power today. We should celebrate her courage and accept her challenge.
 
A stinging slap at leaders all over the world today, from a 16 year old.
 
It's been something else watching my generation and the Boomers viscerally react to a teenager telling them they fucked the world up. Especially the Boomers, whose brand was telling their parents they fucked the world up.
 
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
I want to be @GretaThunberg when I grow up. Seriously. What an amazing young lady.
 
The people who make fun of this brave girl have not even an iota of her strength and passion and innate goodness. Shame on them. May they rot.
 
I’m trying to write and keep getting emotional listening to her.
 
 
I think Greta needs a juice box and a nap 😳 #UNGA
 
 
Some very powerful words from Greta, and she’s right.
 
 
 
Greta Thunberg is right. This is ICONIC.
 
“Esto está mal. No debería estar aquí. Debería estar en el colegio al otro lado del océano. Pero nos llamáis a los jóvenes en busca de esperanza. Cómo os atrevéis? Habéis robado mis sueños y mi infancia con vuestras palabras vacías “. @GretaThunberg en la ONU #AGNU #UNGA
 
"Tout cela est faux. Je ne devrais pas être ici. Je devrais être à l’école de l’autre côté de l’océan. Pourtant, vous venez à nous jeunes pour l’espoir. Comment osez-vous. Vous avez volé mes rêves et mon enfance avec vos mots vides." #UNGA #GretaThurnberg

Good for her, she is the future, the world leaders are failing our children
 
Currently the most adult person involved in American politics by a goddamn mile
 
”How dare you! ” 

この少女のパワフルでシリアスなスピーチを前にしては、やっぱし、経済大国の代表閣僚がステーキ食ったり💛セクシー💛とか言ったりしてたら、浮くよな・・・

Was hab ich für eine Hochachtung vor diesem Mädchen ! #FridaysForFurture #GretaThurnberg
 
“We are in the beginning of a mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth.”

@GretaThunberg’s anger is palpable. 🔥

WAKE UP ADULTS and GET READY!! The kids are voting soon and those who are listening to them already vote.
 
This kid is completely bonkers and so is every single adult that is feeding her fears and delusions. You should all be ashamed of yourselves.
 
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
Unfortunately she says it- they are evil and those who are lobbying them to fight saving our planet are evil.
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
You're participating in child abuse.
 
i love gen z they are really sick of yall’s inaction—you love to see it.

"Entire ecosystems are facing mass extinction and all you can talk about is money." ~@GretaThunberg
 
The people clapping in the audience are the world leaders she's telling to stop clapping because their clapping is meaningless, and so they clap, meaninglessly.
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
BRAVO This Child has more Courage and Character than Millions is Corrupt Climate Deniers!! Trump is a Global Mafia Operation a Thug a Monster
 
She is amazing. And how many kids of so many oppressions have said similar to be met with silence and mockery
 
 
Wise beyond her years...
 
Every generation has a few transformational figures that shake us out of our malaise and put us on a path toward a better world. @GretaThunberg is one of those great people.

This video will rattle you to the core. #ClimateChange #IStandwithGreta
 
i've never watched greta thunberg speak at length, and wow, she is an incredibly compelling speaker. the emotion here speaks volumes and resonates so deeply with how i feel. the applause, by contrast, feels empty. keep speaking truth to power.
 
She refuses to be consigned to the "youth ghetto". Often times young people are invited to these forums and conferences for photo ops - to legitimise the status quo and make power look good. It takes significant consciousness to be able to speak truth to power.
 
Bless her. There's no way I could have spoken in front of a group like this at her age.
 
 
 
If she weren't a child how many giggles would "We'll Be Watching You" draw from the crowd?

And why go to school? In the eyes of liberal academia she already possesses all of the tools necessary of being a good citizen: Recite your lines and Demand Government Action.
 
the happy clapping and cheers in the room only underscore her fierce point that when the establishment says 'we hear you' they don’t
 
 
 
raga io bimba di greta spero in una sua dittatura
 
Greta, choking back tears, speaks better English than Donald Trump.
 
Provate ad ascoltarla. E poi immaginatevi a 17 anni davanti ai rappresentanti delle Nazioni Unite. Solo così si può capire la determinazione di questa ragazza. E la ragione per cui tanti vecchi opinionisti frustrati di casa nostra le danno addosso. #greta
 
man, the kids are tired of our bullshit
 
Dear Angela Merkel, if you are the new leader of the free world, then please listen👇🏿👇🏿. Act like our leaders and not at the behest of corporate powers. #ClimateChange #GretaThurnberg
 
אני לגמרי מסכים עם שלושת המשפטים הראשונים.
 
hell yeah demon child don’t hold back
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
Good. She speaks to these fools with the contempt they deserve.
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
Sadly she is right. Way too much talks and very few real Action in the past. scientists4future.org/stellungnahme/…
 
Kids forced to tell adults not to destroy the planet they will inhabit after the adults are dead, only to be told by those same adults that they are ignorant, PC pawns who should shut up.

The depth of our shame here is astronomical.
 
That’s one hell of a speech.
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
Trump surprised many by showing up to this climate summit. He stayed 10 minutes then walked out. Is this what he walked out on? Smh
 
greta came to kick ass and take names, and she’s got enough names
 
I like how she has refused to romanticize her work. She understands she shouldn’t be doing this. That adults should be stepping up, but their greed & the Like has forced her, a child, into action. Which is not okay. Brilliant kid :)

My son also has Aspergers and 1 thing I know for certain about Aspies is they're focused, passionate and they will never give up! Way to, Greta! 👏👏
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
Go Greta! I love this young lady.
 
Righteous anger and emotion from @GretaThunberg, one of the wisest and sanest people on the plant. I am right behind everything she says, because this is what I've felt for decades. It's time for everyone with a moral compass to stand up and be counted. We need action now.
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
This girl is everything, I can't believe that she's real.
 
Esta niña va a llegar lejísimos, más que nada impulsada por el super emputamiento que le hierve en la sangre al ver nuestras pendejadas.
 
Also... can you IMAGINE the bravery of this young woman? I barely have the spine to speak this kind of truth to powers far, FAR below the rank of the UN General Assembly. What a courageous person.
 
In reply to @kylegriffin1
Hard to argue with this. It really shouldn't be up to this girl to kick everyone's a$$ over their complacency.
 
“You have stolen my childhood” is 100% accurate, though she’s angry at the wrong people.

It’s wrong to do this to children. It’s abusive to terrify them so that you can control them. THAT is evil. I hope when catastrophes don’t materialize that they see what you did to them.
 
"You have stolen my dreams and my childhood"
 
Super hot take (pun intended): 100 years from now global warning will be viewed as the climatological equivalent to the Y2K bug. It’ll be solved by transition to renewables, electric cars, a resurgence of nuclear, and geoengineering (needed b/c the former will be too late).
 
Greta is GULLY AF 👏👏👏
