Greta Thunberg Calls U.N. Climate Summit a ‘P.R. Event’

The activist Greta Thunberg criticized world leaders’ climate efforts, speaking to the thousands protesting in Glasgow outside the United Nations summit.

It should be obvious that we cannot solve a crisis with the same methods that got us into it in the first place, and more and more people are starting to realize this. Many are starting to ask themselves, “What will it take for the people in power to wake up?” But let’s be clear, they are already awake. They know exactly what they are doing. They know exactly what priceless values they are sacrificing to maintain business as usual. The leaders are not doing nothing. They are actively creating loopholes and shaping frameworks to benefit themselves and to continue profiting from this destructive system. This is an active choice by the leaders to continue to let the exploitation of people and nature, and the destruction of present and future living conditions to take place. The COP has to turned into a P.R. event, where leaders are given beautiful speeches and announcing fancy commitments and targets, while behind the curtains, the governments of the global North countries are still refusing to take any drastic climate action.
