‘I want you to panic’: 16-year-old issues climate warning at Davos


Our house is on fire. I am here to say,
our house is on fire. According to the IPCC,
we are less than 12 years away from not being able
to undo our mistakes. At places like Davos,
people like to tell success stories. But their financial success has
come with an unthinkable price tag. And on climate change, we have
to acknowledge we have failed. All political movements in their
present form have done so, and the media has failed
to create broad public awareness. But Homo sapiens
have not yet failed. Yes, we are failing, but there is
still time to turn everything around. We can still fix this. We still have everything
in our own hands. Now is the time to speak clearly. Solving the climate crisis
is the greatest and most complex challenge
that Homo sapiens have ever faced. The main solution, however,
is so simple that even a small child
can understand it. We have to stop our emissions
of greenhouse gases. And either we do that
or we don’t. You say nothing in life
is black or white. But that is a lie.
A very dangerous lie. Either we prevent
the 1.5C of warming or we don’t. Either we avoid setting off
that irreversible chain reaction beyond human control
or we don’t. Either we choose to go on
as a civilisation or we don’t. That is as black or white
as it gets. We must change almost
everything in our current societies. The bigger your carbon footprint,
the bigger your moral duty. The bigger your platform,
the bigger your responsibility. Adults keep saying:
“We owe it to the young people to give them hope.” But I don’t want your hope. I don’t want you to be hopeful. I want you to panic. I want you to feel the fear
I feel every day. And then I want you to act. I want you to act
as you would in a crisis. I want you to act as if
the house was on fire. Because it is.

  • Why is mankind responsible for global warming? Because you can’t tax the Sun!

  • PERIODT SIS PERIODT.

  • It is her way she talks.. Why did she never start with the words, :" since my uncle Svante August Arrhenius got in 1903 the NOBEL Award , nothing happened… and so on.. ?????

  • I feel so sorry for this sweet little girl, so manipulated by adults

  • The next generation of souls coming onto this planet and the millennials are the Revolution. We will knock the old house down and build the new. We only have this planet to live on. The destruction is coming to an end. We will not tolerate in any longer!

  • Wind, solar, geothermal, reforestation, we need to build technologies that can capture CO2 from the atmosphere, etc… We need a WW2 style emergency for our country and planet!

  • Switch aircraft to hydrogen fuel, convert cars to electric and on and on. We can accomplish all this within 5 to 10 years!

  • She is unsettlingly ugly.

  • Cry me a river.

  • Lemme correct the title real quick: Unlikeable child implies you are dumb and wonders why you won't do what she says.

  • And these children that you spit on as they try to change their worlds; are immune to your consultations, they are quite aware of what they are going through – David Bowie

  • The climate crisis is the greatest and most complex challenge the dinosaurs ever faced.

  • VH1's Where are they now?: The Shining

  • be smart, have empathy, go vegan

  • Ok, just a few thoughts here. We know, for a fact, that these promoters (??) tried the fear mongering back in the 70's, here in Sweden. Just google and check the background on that. We have politicians that a few years back, claimed that soon enough there will be no more snow (Where, in Sweden??) bUT Another politician proudly presents their Dream of hosting the very holy OLYMPICS, in 2026…..how is that for ja'all!? AND, this Little Girls mother, claims that she can ACTUALLY SEE the CO2, swirling around in the air…and top of that, her parents are extreme left wing belivers. And as a result of this fear mongering, we now have a new generation of depressed and climate anxiety filled youngsters….and also, for how many more decades must we, endure these liars, and parasites hoovering over our lives? Just sayin'…

  • She says this but she doesn’t know how to power a plane without fuel

  • "I want you to panic!" – eine treffende Beschreibung dieser SchülerInnen!

  • My house is not on fire – and won´t be.

  • 19 year ago people laughed at Carlos Roa. Shove it down relentlessly people seem to take notice. Weird world.

  • Liar liar house on fire!

  • I'd eat the last panda just to know how they taste.

  • This little woman is amazing.
    Also, what is that accent?
    Makes me think of Bjork.

  • Another mindless child dupped by falseness……………..and what will happen in the 13 year, answer that.

  • Climate is changing, so what? It has changed many times before during this planets lifetime. Over consuming is bad, polluting is bad. But, even if we all turn to vegetarians and never use petrol cars anymore, the climate will still change. No matter what.

  • In psychology, panic is identified as a disorder and is related strongly to biological and psychological factors and their interactions.[3]A view described one of its incidences as a specific psychological vulnerability of people to interpret normal physical sensations in a catastrophic way.[4] Leonard J. Schmidt and Brooke Warner describe panic as “that terrible, profound emotion that stretches us beyond our ability to imagine any experience more horrible” adding that “physicians like to compare painful clinical conditions on some imagined ‘Richter scale’ of vicious, mean hurt … to the psychiatrist there is no more vicious, mean hurt than an exploding and personally disintegrating panic attack.”[5]

    Panic in social psychology is considered infectious since it can spread to a multitude of people and those affected are expected to act irrationally as a consequence.[6]Psychologists identify different types of this panic event with slightly varying descriptions and these include mass hysteria, mass psychosis, mass panic, and social contagion.[7]

    An influential theoretical treatment of panic is found in Neil J. Smelser's Theory of Collective Behavior. The science of panic management has found important practical applications in the armed forces and emergency services of the world.

    Panicking is the solution? To whom? Stultis!?

  • It's like seeing a caged animal dancing and in here, Everyone is clapping their hands with smiles, tears and a feeling of unity….. Clowns will inhabit the future. Yes the future is dim lighted.

  • Go Greta! We all like under age girls in the EU. We are heading to the nearby pizza parlor after this.

  • how does she know that the world will end if the climate becomes 1.5 degrees celsius warmer?

  • DES KAISERS NEUE
    KLEIDER

    Manchmal werden
    Märchen war, jetzt erwischt es wohl auch das bekannte Märchen von
    Andersen.

    Des Kaisers neue
    Kleider, die nennt man heute unter anderem soziale und ökologische
    Marktwirtschaft.

    Seit jeher sind sie
    auch nur für jemanden zu erkennen, der unter dem politischen und
    ideologischen Einfluss der Monopolparteien und des von ihnen massiv
    beförderten kleinbürgerlichen Denkens steht, ansonsten gilt: Umwelt
    und Soziales allenfalls so, dass die Profitinteressen des Kapitals
    nicht beeinträchtigt werden.

    Im Moment sind wir
    an der Stelle angelangt, wo die ersten Kinder und Jugendlichen rufen
    ……..

    Ganz wie im Märchen
    reagieren so manche Erwachsenen reserviert.

    Mag ja so sein,
    heißt es da, aber ruft nur dann, wenn ihr die Schulpflicht nicht
    verletzt und auch nur dort, wo der öffentliche Verkehr nicht
    beeinträchtigt wird, wobei sie das schlaueste ihnen zur Verfügung
    stehende Gesicht aufsetzen.

    Aber wer das Märchen
    bis zu Ende kennt, der weis, es endet revolutionär – nicht
    reformistisch oder versöhnlerisch.

  • Whahahaaa

  • Your brain is burned. Nothing more …

  • Once in Afghanistan, we learn that we never ever panic if it's about your life

  • World gone mad. Another children's crusade.

  • Climate is changing because it has got electrolytes. Idiocracy.

  • someone who wish you to feel fear is a hateful person

  • a philosopher said "We didn't start the fire"

  • i dont't care.

  • more than anything i admire her willingness to be in an uncomfortable spot just because she's a person with deep conviction and moral responsibility. This speech will inspire anyone who is open minded and willing to change.

  • You suck!

  • want ME to panic? uhm- no.

  • Innocent kid used by the Left. She has several mentall illnesses. Very bad ones and yet the left uses her for their benefit.

  • Not only taxes on CO2 / global warming is the biggest scam ever, but they also do not hesitate to use kids for their satanic manipulation!

  • Pity Davos didn't have a Red Woman to burn this silly twit.

  • Using mentally ill girl to push leftist narrative… Lowest form of social manipulation ever…

  • Тупорылыя малолетняя пизда

  • reminds me of a scene from wag the dog for some reason

  • If you don’t see that she’s a total loon, then you’re probably one too!

  • Does she have Fetal Alcohol Syndrome? Because that is what a lot of people are saying.

  • "It doesn't matter that she's a child, it's the argument that matters!"

    Ask yourself why a child was made to say this and given the platform. The child is the argument and it's pathetic.

  • To be honest, I was very skeptical because I haven't seen her anywhere yet.
    I'm very involved in the WEF at the moment and got a little curious on who she is.
    Or what she does. And to be honest, for a 16 year old girl with autism,
    she is exceptionally intelligent, outspoken and brave. Think of the struggles she
    had to face to get into the position she is currently in. Absolutely amazing.

  • Time has an amazing habit of revealing all truths and history tells us that these scare campaigns have been around from the beginning. If we were living in times of war we wouldn't be fighting the activist that promote fear we would be defending our country. Which goes to prove we are always at war; physically and ideologically. These activist will have to at some stage self destruct.

  • This child has severe psychological issues, the last person I would take advice from

  • You can actually see the mental illnes in her eyes. Poor child.

  • Just use children it's working on you!

  • oh maaan politicians, economy.. you dumb or what? listen to meee.. saaad
    all i wanna say is that they don't really care about us
    ridiculous, they are so out of our range
    not that i don't honor the try.. but i didn't watch the video 😀

  • Hey look!! It's a little Al Gore!! With all the disinformation that you possibly need. We will see if the Earth is underwater in the next 10 years little girl. I can tell you have definitely been indoctrinated and filled with a bunch of garbage.

  • 🙂 🙂 🙂

  • We must do this and must do that. That we need to change something is black and white. But it is how we do it that is not. If things would be so easy she would already have solved the problem.

  • This is amazing I love ❤️ this she is so smart

  • She's so mature and smart, we should treat her just like an adult, an expert, even!

    Oh, wait, people are treating her like an adult talking about a controversial topic, insulting and discrediting her?! SOMEONE THINK OF THE CHILDREN! SHE'S JUST A CHILD, YOU HEARTLESS MONSTERS!

  • LEAVE OIL, GO ELECTRIC

  • Fly around the world telling us to stop driving cars. She'll turn up stoned at an anti-drugs demo next.

  • I agree with her. But if i mention climate change to people around me, it is just no factor. People still travel lazily by car, do not want to back down on holidays with airplanes, the list is long.
    Now im not perfect, but we have not had a car for 6 years, so im saving the environment there. We also decreased the amount of times we fly, instead of twice a year, we travel once per 2 years.

    My issue here is, i want to save more, but when i see around me that people pollute more every day, i wonder why i am the only one trying.
    It is depressing. I do not know what to tell my son when he grows up.

  • 👀👁👀👁👀🗣🗣👁👀🗣🌬🌎🌬🌍❄️☃️🌨❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️

  • Greta: "I want you to panic"
    Me: "I want you to calm down and go to your room. Then go back to school, so maybe some day you'll understand what you are talking about, and why you should not blindly believe everything."

  • Using a child as a pawn… That's the end of humanity and human decency!

  • We are way past the point of us undoing our mistakes, you are behind the times already young lady

  • The end is nigh😅😅😅😅

  • Its too bad these kids believe the lies of the left. There is not such thing as climate change it was invented for you to give up your rights to make decisions. They want you to believe that you can't be trusted to take care of the Earth so they can take control of the population. This little girl is just a naive kid, and the media is eating it up.

  • Parents and evironmentalists should be ashamed of exploiting this mentally ill girl

  • The elite Warmists flying their jets and living in their dozen mansions don't seem concerned about anything but controlling the peasants. Same as it ever was.

  • I heard this this smart brave little girl on the BBC and I say wow and bravo 👏 bravo 👏 you have my support 110 %

  • IPPC is no place of trust they are political. And by the way I believe Greta`s brain might be the only thing on fire 🙂
