If you remember what Severn Cullis-Suzki said in 1992, you can see even better why Greta Thunberg is angry.
“We are a group of twelve and thirteen-year-olds from Canada trying to make a difference…We raised all the money ourselves to come six thousand miles to tell you adults you must change your ways. Coming here today, … I am fighting for my future… I am here to speak for all generations to come… I am here to speak on behalf of the starving children around the world whose cries go unheard. I am here to speak for the countless animals dying across this planet because they have nowhere left to go….
I’m only a child yet I know we are all part of a family, five billion strong, in fact, 30 million species strong and we all share the same air, water and soil — borders and governments will never change that…”
–From Severn Cullis-Suzuki’s speech before the UN Earth Summit in Rio, Brazil in 1992
