  1. This is not a drill.
  2. My name is Greta Thunberg.
  3. We are living in the beginning
    of a mass extinction.

  4. Our climate is breaking down.
  5. Children like me are giving up
    their education to protest.
  6. But we can still fix this.
  7. You can still fix this.
  8. To survive, we need
    to stop burning fossil fuels.
  9. But this alone will not be enough.
  10. Lots of solutions are talked about.
  11. But what about the solution
    that is right in front of us?

  12. I’ll let my friend George explain.
  13. There is a magic machine
    that sucks carbon out of the air
  14. costs very little
  15. and builds itself.
  16. It’s called...
  17. a tree.
  18. A tree is an example
    of a natural climate solution.
  19. Mangroves, peat bogs, jungles,
    marshes, seabeds,
  20. kelp forests, swamps, coral reefs,
  21. they take carbon out of the air
    and lock it away.
  22. Nature is a tool we can use
    to repair our broken climate.
  23. These natural climate solutions
    could make a massive difference.
  24. Pretty cool, right?
  25. But only if we also leave fossil fuels
    in the ground.
  26. Here’s the crazy part...
  27. right now we are ignoring them.
  28. We spend 1000 times more
    on global fossil fuels subsidies
  29. than natural based solutions.
  30. Natural climate solutions get just 2%
  31. of all the money used
    on tackling climate breakdown.
  32. This is your money.
  33. It is your taxes and your savings.
  34. Even more crazy
  35. right now when we need nature the most,
  36. we’re destroying it faster than ever.
  37. Up to 200 species are going extinct
    every single day.
  38. Much of the arctic ice is gone.
  39. Most of our wild animals have gone.

  52. we must protect it.
  53. RESTORE
  54. Much of our planet has been damaged.
  55. But Nature can regenerate
  56. and we can help ecosystems bounce back.
  57. FUND

    that destroy nature
  59. and pay for things that help it.
