NatureNow: Greta Thunberg and George Monbiot make short film on the climate crisis

  • Non sincronizzato

    00:00:00.02 --> 00:00:00.07
    This is not a drill. My name is Greta Thunberg.

    00:00:00.08 --> 00:00:00.10
    We are living in the beginning of a mass exøncøon.

    00:00:00.11 --> 00:00:00.13
    Our climate is breaking down.

    00:00:00.15 --> 00:00:00.18
    Children like me are giving up their educaøon to protest.

    00:00:00.19 --> 00:00:00.23
    But we can søll fix this. You can søll fix this.

    00:00:00.24 --> 00:00:00.30
    To survive, we need to stop burning fossil fuels. But this alone will not be enough.

    00:00:00.31 --> 00:00:00.35
    Lots of soluøons are talked about. But what about the soluøon that is right in front of us?

    00:00:00.36 --> 00:00:00.38
    I’ll let my friend George explain.

    00:00:00.39 --> 00:00:00.49
    There is a magic machine that sucks carbon out of the air, costs very li le, and builds itself. It’s called, a tree.

    00:00:00.49 --> 00:00:00.53
    A tree is an example of a natural climate soluøon.

    00:00:00.54 --> 00:00:01.03
    Mangroves, peatbogs, jungles, marshes, seabeds, kelp forests, swamps, coral reefs, they take carbon out of the air and lock it away.

    00:00:01.04 --> 00:00:01.08
    Nature is a tool we can use to repair our broken climate.

    00:00:01.09 --> 00:00:01.12
    These natural climate soluøons could make a massive difference.

    00:00:01.13 --> 00:00:01.14
    Pre y cool, right?

    00:00:01.14 --> 00:00:01.18
    But only if we also leave fossil fuels in the ground.

    00:00:01.20 --> 00:00:01.24
    Here’s the crazy part: right now we are ignoring them.

    00:00:01.26 --> 00:00:01.32
    We spend 1000 øme more on global fossil fuels subsidies than natural based soluøons.

    00:00:01.33 --> 00:00:01.39
    Natural climate soluøons get just 2% of all the money used on tackling climate breakdown.

    00:00:01.40 --> 00:00:01.43
    This is your money. It is your taxes and your savings.

    00:00:01.44 --> 00:00:01.50
    Even more crazy, when we need nature the most, we’re destroying it faster than ever.

    00:00:01.51 --> 00:00:01.54
    Up to 200 species are going exønct every single day.

    00:00:01.55 --> 00:00:02.01
    Much of the arcøc ice is gone. Most of our wild animals have gone. Much of our soil has gone.

    00:00:02.01 --> 00:00:02.02
    So what should we do?

    00:00:02.02 --> 00:00:02.04
    What should you do?

    00:00:02.05 --> 00:00:02.09
    It’s simple. We need to protect, restore, and fund.

    00:00:02.11 --> 00:00:02.16
    Protect. Tropical forests are being cut down at the rate of 30 football pitches a minute.

    00:00:02.17 --> 00:00:02.20
    Where Nature is doing something vital, we must protect it.

    00:00:02.21 --> 00:00:02.24
    Restore. Much of our planet has been damaged.

    00:00:02.25 --> 00:00:02.30
    But Nature can regenerate, and we can help ecosystems bounce back.

    00:00:02.31 --> 00:00:02.312
    Fund.

    00:00:02.33 --> 00:00:02.39
    We need to stop funding things that destroy Nature, and pay for things that help it.

    00:00:02.39 --> 02.40
    It is that simple. Protect. Restore. Fund.

    00:00:02.45 --> 00:00:02.53
    This can happen everywhere. Many people have already begun using natural climate soluøons. We need to do it on a massive scale.

    00:00:02.54 --> 00:00:02.55
    You can be part of this.

    00:00:02.56 --> 00:00:02.58
    Vote for people who defend nature.

    00:00:02.58 --> 00:00:03.01
    Share this video. Talk about this.

    00:00:03.02 --> 00:00:03.06
    All around the world there are amazing movements. Fighøng for Nature. Join them.

    00:00:03.14 --> 00:00:03.20
    Everything counts. What you do, counts.
