listen to wisdom – Liberation

The uprising of the “climate generation” must be an inspiration for political representatives, meeting in Glasgow from Monday, in order to finally take decisions aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Boris Johnson, inviting power of this COP26 which starts this Sunday. Joe Biden, president of the first world power, returned after the Trump years to the table of discussions on climate change. Ursula von der Leyen, for the European Commission, Emmanuel Macron for France. And so many others… The actions of these world leaders will be scrutinized in Glasgow. And even the facts, gestures and proposals of the absent ones (Russian and Chinese presidents Vladimir Poutine and Xi Jinping) will be decisive in measuring the reality of the awareness of climate issues. While progress has been underway since the COP organized in France six years ago, there is unfortunately no optimism before this COP26. While it would be necessary to go even further than what the Paris agreement provided for, the atmosphere is rather in the Scottish shower.

For optimism, we must turn to this “climate generation” who will be in Glasgow to shout loudly the urgency of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. It is to her that Release has chosen to give the floor before the opening of this important meeting. They, and more often they than they, have been mobilizing for several years across the planet. If the Swedish Greta Thunberg was “The spark that made it possible to launch the dynamic”, she is not alone, far from it. The Ugandan Vanessa Nakaté, 24, is of the same caliber. Like 17-year-old Harriet O’Shea Carre from Australia. You have to listen to what these young women say, including their excess which says less about their young age than about this certainty that time is really running out. They are the proof that wisdom does not wait for the number of years. They are more responsible than a Trump, a Bolsonaro, or a Zemmour who does not care about climate issues like his last shirt. Their youth, so often criticized, is a promise.
