Boris Johnson quotes Greta Thunberg at COP26: “Bla bla bla”

On Monday, the opening ceremony of the UN climate summit in Glasgow took place. The keynote speaker was the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Boris Johnson who lifted a warning finger.

– The longer we delay in acting, the higher the price, the doomsday clock is at one minute to midnight, he said and continued:

– If we do not take the climate seriously, it is too late for our children to do so tomorrow.

In September, she gave a speech in Milan in which she criticized the politicians’ lack of action and said that “there is no planet B, there is no planet blah blah blah” – an expression Johnson borrowed on Monday.

“The promises will be nothing more than ‘blah blah blah’ to borrow an expression,” he said, urging world leaders to take the climate crisis seriously.
