Greta Thunberg, the climate activist who has inspired millions of young people around the world, says COP26, the United Nations’ global climate summit in Glasgow, has already failed, and countries around the world must agree on how to achieve the 2015 emissions reduction target at the Paris Climate Summit. .
At a demonstration in Glasgow’s George Square, Thunberg told the mostly young protesters, who demanded decisive action, that the climate summit had failed because negotiators did not understand that climate catastrophe could not be avoided by the same methods as the catastrophe. . According to him, world leaders live in a bubble, dreaming of endless growth and emerging technological advances that would solve all problems while the world literally burns, and many are already suffering from the effects of climate change.
According to Thunberg, the climate summit talks and the position of world leaders can also be summed up in a way that “everything remains the same and we are creating as many loopholes as possible to be of use to us”.By comparison, he said, an immediate and drastic reduction in emissions would be needed. The demonstration was organized by the Scottish Friday for Future group, a youth organization inspired in part by Thunberg’s solitary climate demonstrations on Friday. Thousands took part in a demonstration that passed through downtown Glasgow. Meanwhile, demonstrations took place in several parts of the world to demand decisive and immediate action against climate change. (BBC)
