At last a young leader who tells it like it is. Greta Thunberg.
For the last thee decades the world has watched as political leaders have tiptoed round the edges of the worlds climate crisis caused mainly by global warming carbon emissions from the burning of fossil fuels. This is what leadership looks like and it comes from a brave teenager.
I watched this and felt ashamed for my generation.
"This is above all an emergency, and not just any emergency. This is the biggest crisis humanity has ever faced.

In presence of Secretary General Guterres, President Van der Bellen, Arnold Schwartzenegger and a great number of heads of states.
