Greta Thunberg and George Monbiot make short film on the climate crisis

This is not a drill.
My name is Greta Thunberg.
We are living in the beginning
of a mass extinction.
Our climate is breaking down.
Children like me are giving up
their education to protest.
But we can still fix this.
You can still fix this.
To survive, we need
to stop burning fossil fuels.
But this alone will not be enough.
Lots of solutions are talked about.
But what about the solution
that is right in front of us?
I’ll let my friend George explain.
There is a magic machine
that sucks carbon out of the air
costs very little
and builds itself.
It’s called…
a tree.
A tree is an example
of a natural climate solution.
Mangroves, peat bogs, jungles,
marshes, seabeds,
kelp forests, swamps, coral reefs,
they take carbon out of the air
and lock it away.
Nature is a tool we can use
to repair our broken climate.
These natural climate solutions
could make a massive difference.
Pretty cool, right?
But only if we also leave fossil fuels
in the ground.
Here’s the crazy part…
right now we are ignoring them.
We spend 1000 times more
on global fossil fuels subsidies
than natural based solutions.
Natural climate solutions get just 2%
of all the money used
on tackling climate breakdown.
This is your money.
It is your taxes and your savings.
Even more crazy
right now when we need nature the most,
we’re destroying it faster than ever.
Up to 200 species are going extinct
every single day.
Much of the arctic ice is gone.
Most of our wild animals have gone.
Much of our soil has gone.
So what should we do?
What should YOU do?
It’s simple…
We need to
and FUND.
Tropical forests are being cut down
at the rate of
30 football pitches a minute.
Where Nature is doing something vital
we must protect it.
Much of our planet has been damaged.
But Nature can regenerate
and we can help ecosystems bounce back.
We need to stop funding things
that destroy nature
and pay for things that help it.
It is that simple
This can happen everywhere;
Many people have already begun
using natural climate solutions.
We need to do it on a massive scale.
You can be part of this.
VOTE for people who defend nature.
SHARE this video.
Talk about this.
All around the world
there are amazing movements
fighting for nature.
JOIN them.
Everything counts.
What you do, counts.

  1. Greta's intention is excellent, but we especially need to stop population growth on our planet to restore the balance between humans and nature.

  2. The planet is "greener" now than it has been for decades? The hole in the ozone layer is smaller now than it has been for years? CO 2 is not the problem??? We could use a bit more of it!!! It's why growers pump "air" into greenhouses laden with CO 2 to the tune of 1000 parts per million.

  3. The invention of the internet and mobile smart phones with cameras since the 1990s has enabled instant global news reporting of all unusual weather events which gives the impression the climate is changing and warming when in actual fact it is normal weather occurences.

  4. I love these two! Cannot wait to share this film. Another huge acceleration of global warming is the raising of cattle which is destroying forests, including the Amazon in record time. Eating plant-based can make a huge difference! And, it is so much healthier!

  5. Sonar killing whales and dolphins is not climate change.
    Intentionally polluting rivers to fund these lies is not climate change.
    Dumping 1080 in the wilderness is not Climate Change.
    Aluminum & barium nanoparticles in our atmosphere is not climate change.

    " December 1976 United Nations A/RES/31/72 ( approves of environmental modification of all life biota on earth)

    Recognizing that scientific and technical advances may open new possibilities with respect to modification of the environment,

    Recalling the Declaration of the United Nations Conference on the Human Environment, adopted at Stockholm on 16 June 1972,

    Realizing that the use of environmental modification techniques for peaceful purposes could improve the interrelationship of man and nature and contribute to the preservation and improvement of the environment for the benefit of present and future generations,

    Article II

    As used in article I, the term "environmental modification techniques" refers to any technique for changing-through the deliberate manipulation of natural processes-the dynamics, composition or structure of the Earth, including its biota, lithosphere, hydrosphere and atmosphere, or of outer space. "

    OUR weather and climate is Modified.

  6. Nice film but as almost always it's within the boundaries of the current system's thinking. "Vote for people who defend nature." At what point have politicians become to be called 'people'? Every single politician operates within the monetary system where profits are put in front of the environment. I may anticipate further comments so just in case: does anyone sincerely believe the green new deal politicians are going to save it? It's a DEAL, that's why it's called 'deal '- an agreement entered into by two or more parties for their mutual benefit, especially in a business or political context. They deal with each other's money. Where does saving environment take place there? "

    Join the movements. Then who's going to plant your magic machine? Why not to also call people for such actions as planting, growing own food, volunteering for environmental restoration, etc. Seriously, you should rewrite the script.

  7. Thank you, Greta. Environment and nature are becoming worse and worse even hour-to-hour. It will be inevitably dangerous and disastrous for us in the near future. Everyone must realize this condition on the planet. I support you as I can in every way (from Uzbekistan)

  8. 🤔That girl apparently has no idea what developing countries are like and that people dream of living in a country with better opportunities and living conditions considering that not everyone lives in developed countries. It's funny to know that they use children for personal purposes. It would sound more credible if it came from the world's indigenous peoples, especially from Latin America.

  9. The man says real words, but Greta just say that we need to change and, what we need stop to do. But the man tell the solution and he knows where he talk about it.

  10. Greta: What should we do ?

    Me: Uhmm…. uhmm… Have you finished your homework? Have you revised for your Chemistry test ?

  11. Why don't people in the us make a change by stop using paper money and destroying trees why not use plastic money like Canada.😑

  12. Your problem is not climatic your problem is psychological. If you are scared you should look for a psychiatrist and not spread your psychosis to the whole world. You are sick and you should seek help. All the theater you are doing next to you only makes your disease worse.
    You are a lost teenager who is looking for acceptance.
    On earth it has never been better in the whole history of civilization. Why are you denying the prosperity that we have in Europe to African children.
    They also want to have something to eat and go to school every day.
    Without industry this is impossible. You are a spoiled child who has never known poverty.
    You have never been hungry in your life.
    Only in this way can I explain why you say such nonsense. I know what poverty is. My first payout in my life was $ 20. That's why I'm afraid of people like you. I don't want any rich, overindulge children who have no idea about poverty to save the world.

    Stop doing this you are a manipulated child, the poorest I will suffer because of you.
