Here is Greta Thunberg speaking at UN. “This is all wrong,” she opened by saying.
It is more than worth listening to. Note how the very same delegates that she rips into applaud her condemnation of them. Clearly, the capitalist politicians want to seduce her into becoming “realistic”, but I find it difficult to see how they will succeed. For one, this is not a matter of political or social analysis; it’s a matter of scientific fact, and she clearly knows the facts, and the facts are simply too stark. Nature will not allow room for some to benefit in this disaster. This means that a new and radical youth movement is coming. There will be many questions and differences along the way, but in the longer term it will be difficult to escape the fact that at its root, global climate disaster is not “human” caused; it’s capitalist caused, and the answer is a democratically planned economy and working class democracy.
