Greta Thunberg’s TED talk

“…If the emissions have to stop, then we have to stop the emissions….”

“… If a few children can get headlines all over the world just by not going to school for a few weeks, imagine what we could all do together if we wanted to….”

“…The one thing we need more than hope is action….”

— Greta Thunberg, November 2018

She says more, and more forcefully, in 11 minutes than most speakers in hours!
