Opinion, observation and outrage:
…Children of the corn? You have no idea. Children of your Demise is more like it. And it’s about time.
There is no doubt that Greta Thunberg represents the future. And, after reactions from these two, who clearly represent the past, the future can’t come soon enough. It is a hopeful trend that obvious truths, truths that children can see clearly with their own eyes are finally being spoken out loud, without fear but with the outrage that the facts deserve.
“My message is that we’ll be watching you.
“This is all wrong. I shouldn’t be up here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean. Yet you all come to us young people for hope. How dare you! You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words. And yet I’m one of the lucky ones. People are suffering. People are dying. Entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are in the beginning of a mass extinction, and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth. How dare you!“
“For more than 30 years, the science has been crystal clear. How dare you continue to look away and come here saying that you’re doing enough, when the politics and solutions needed are still nowhere in sight.”
“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.”
“The popular idea of cutting our emissions in half in 10 years only gives us a 50% chance of staying below 1.5 degrees Celsius, and the risk of setting off irreversible chain reactions beyond human control.“-Climate activist Greta Thunberg, 16, addressing the U.N.’s Climate Action Summit, September 23, 2019
Enough is enough, Anyone with a brain can agree
For nearly 100 years the human race has been held hostage by the fossil fuel industrial complex, Middle East Oil and the greed and corruption that has maintained its strangle hold on our lives.
It was already clear in the 1960s that the dependence on Oil was, at best, a temporary means of survival. And yet, during the next 60 years the dependence only deepened and the forces of corruption buried the truth.
Renewable energy was always a better way. Electric cars have been feasible for many decades and have other clean modes of transport, only to be blocked by governments and evil, greedy people like Trump and Laura Ingraham.
Elon Musk and Tesla are of the establishment and yet still attacked on all sides due to the danger they pose to the status quo. However, the future will embrace those, like Tesla, who face facts… The coming generations will see the charade for what it is; absolute suicidal greed and evil towards all mankind.
Greta Thunberg and her generation will not have the luxury of pretending that lies are true. And neither do we.
Greta Thunberg is giving voice to the painfully obvious reality we all face. She is speaking to all who are ready to remove the veil of lies and obfuscation and look at the situation that generations of short-sighted, self-serving sycophants have done to the earth and it’s future survival hopes.
Today must represent a turn away from those past generations. Today the lines must finally be drawn in favor of the real facts, the obvious realities that have been clear for decades, and yet were “hidden” behind agendas furthering the perpetuation of the status quo and it’s self-destructive greed.
Change can begin when the truth is allowed to exist in sunshine and be taken for what it is. That enormous step forward, perhaps late but no less welcome for it, has already begun.
Dismissing Greta Thunberg with disgusting tweets or derisive comments will only shine an even brighter light on the truth of her words. As it should be. And the reaction of the dinosaurs should be seen for what it is; the howling of a species that sees it’s own imminent demise and extinction in the face of the future.
A future that can not come soon enough if any of the rest of us hope to survive, or see our children’s hopes for the future be restored.
