EDITOR'S NOTE: With the global economy seemingly crumbling around them, world leaders took to the COP26 Climate Summit this week to rail against climate change. Former U.S. President Barak Obama told young people to stay angry and “You are right to be frustrated. Folks in my generation have not done enough to deal with a potentially cataclysmic problem that you now stand to inherit." Activist Greta Thunberg was there adding her two cents and taking companies like Shell, BP, and Standard Chartered to task for hypocrisy. Speaking of which, this is the same climate summit that world leaders took over 400 private jets to be at, spiking the carbon footprint of this climate change spectacle.
The planet is getting hotter and hotter. Let's discuss how hot.
Time Really is Running Out
Also note that Obama urges youth to push leaders on climate, and to Stay Angry.
Former U.S. President Barack Obama returned to the international spotlight Monday in Glasgow, urging young people to pressure their leaders to do more to combat climate change.
Agreeing with youth campaigners, Obama said "time is really running out."
"You are right to be frustrated," he said. "Folks in my generation have not done enough to deal with a potentially cataclysmic problem that you now stand to inherit."
Obama told U.N. delegates that he found it "particularly discouraging" to see the leaders of China and Russia skip the Glasgow talks.
Young Activists Seize focus at COP26 Climate Summit
The image of the day award goes to young activists with creative messages on how hot the world is getting.
Allegedly the world is getting hotter than Johnny Depp and Leonardo Dicaprio.
Gretta got into the act with a "Greewash Tweet"
Gretta said "This is no longer a climate conference. This is a Global North greenwash festival," Thunberg tweeted. "A two-week celebration of business as usual and blah blah blah."
In case I tell a lie, I pledge to tell the truth. WTF?
