Severn Cullis-Suzuki Speech 1992 Vs Greta Thunberg Speech In 2019 Climate Change
I just dug up this clip from 1992…
Severn Cullis-Suzuki's speech to the UN in 1992 on climate change sounds an awful lot like Greta Thunberg's in 2019.
I cut the two together to show just how similar the language is: pic.twitter.com/18ptTzX4M4

Hello, I’m Severn Suzuki speaking for “ECO” — the Environmental Children’s Organization. We are a group of 12 and 13 year-olds trying to make a difference.
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!
I am afraid to go out in the sun now, because of the holes in our ozone.
People are suffering. People are dying. Entire eco-systems 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!
All this is happening before our eyes and yet we act as if we have all the time we want and all the solutions.
There will not be any solutions or plans presented in line with these figures here today, because these numbers are too uncomfortable and you are still not mature enough to tell it like it is.
I am only a child, yet I know if all the money spent on war was spent on finding environmental answers ending poverty and in finding treaties, what a wonderful place this Earth would be.
You are failing us, but the young people are starting to understand your betrayal. The eyes of all future generations are upon you. And if you choose to fail us, I say we will never forgive you.
Do not forget why you are attending these conferences – who you’re doing this for. We are your own children. You are deciding what kind of a world we are growing up in. Parents should be able to comfort their children by saying; “Everything’s going to be all right; it’s not the end of the world, and we’re – and we’re doing the best we can.” But I don’t think you can say that to us anymore. Are we even on your list of priorities? My dad always says, “You are what you do, not what you say.” Well, what you do makes me cry at night. You grown-ups say you love us. But I challenge you, please, make your actions reflect your words.

We will not let you get away with this. Right here and right now is where we draw the line. The world is waking up and change is coming whether you like it or not. Thank you.
