Criticism by Greta Thunberg of the outcome of the One Planet Summit held in Paris: only useless chatter according to the Swedish activist.
Unflattering comment by Greta Thunberg to the works of One Planet Summit on Monday. The young Swedish activist summarized the speeches of world representatives and heads of government with a series of “blah, blah, blah”. Useless chatter according to the creator of Fridays For Future, who in a Facebook post defined all Aichi’s objectives for the protection of wild species as “failed”.
Al One Planet Summit in Paris also participated in videoconferencing Giuseppe Conte, the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, the president of the EU Commission Ursula von der Leyen and the German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Despite this, the expected turnaround in international diplomacy in favor of biodiversity would not have happened as published by Greta on FB:
Every day they have the opportunity to act. But they choose not to. Instead they sign up as another “ambitious” long-term goal while approving binding policies, getting stuck in destructive activities as always such as the new Common Agricultural Policy.
Of course the change does not happen overnight and of course we need “bla bla bla” to move. The question is, how many decades of blah blah blah do we really need? Because there have already been several so far …
There are undoubtedly many great people working and pushing everywhere for change in government levels, but the science currently available clearly shows that the necessary action is not possible with today’s systems. We need a new way of thinking.
It gives me no pleasure or joy to keep pointing this out, but so it is and now we can have as many meetings and conferences as we want – unless we start treating this as the existential emergency that it is, no really sufficient action will be possible. We cannot resolve a crisis without treating it as a crisis.
