The truth hurts.
And young climate change activist Greta Thunberg just served up a world of it to global leaders at the 2019 UN Climate Action Summit in an emotional and passionate speech.
This is where we are with our society, where our politics and major corporations are so irreparably dysfunctional, that we can’t see the forest fire through the dying trees – where a child, who should be in school, or playing with her friends, must be our voice of clarity and reason.
She is right. Shame on you. Shame to those that deny, and shame on those that look away from the climate crisis in favor of short-term profit.
