Youth activists lay out demands for a greener future and ‘real action’ on climate change

by News Update

Welcome to Milan. We’re here with the 400 or so young climate change activists from around the world, as they set out their recommendations for world leaders. (Subscribe:

Ahead of the main Glasgow summit, in just a few weeks’ time, this climate change conference is hosted by the Italian government, which is the UK’s partner in organising COP26.

It won’t surprise you to learn that while the young people here are full of passion, they’re also incredibly frustrated at what they see as a lack of action.

We sat down with a group of young activists from India, Pakistan, Argentina, Sudan and Moldova, and started by asking them how climate change is already affecting their own countries.

Climate Change isn't as serious as people make out. You've got people who are in desperate situations in community's up and down the U.K who could do with the money instead of it going towards Climate Change.

ABC's of Salvation

A – Admit you're a sinner in need of a Saviour (Romans 3:10, 6:23)

B – Believe that Jesus Christ died for your sins (1Corinthians 15:3-4)

C – Call upon the Name of the Lord and be saved (Romans 10:9-10, 10:13)

Believe what Jesus Christ did for you on the cross and be saved. As Paul said in the book of Ephesians 2:8-9For by grace are you saved through faith and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God. Not of works lest any man should boast.

BELIEVE & BE SAVED

Since most of Gretas supporters are loudest while online on their devices, sitting in a large air conditioned house, lights and tv on in background, being driven around in mum's SUV, to little to late, another empty distraction at best. More whining from the most entitled generation ever…

Demands for a greener future demands sacrifices of blood and bones. Dinosaurs did their part, now is your turn, prepare yourselves to receive the last rites.

Global climate change on Earth is basically a derivative of astronomical processes and their cyclicity. These are processes which mankind is not able to influence today. we do not even have 5 years. we need to act now! With global cataclysms, people are left alone with their problems. We must already prepare for "Hour X". Emergency measures are necessary, uniting people into one united global family. No one alone can cope with the global problems of the next couple of years. We need to set aside all frames and conventions, we need to consolidate here and now. for our survival. Nature does not look at ranks and ranks, and only a manifestation of true commonwealth between people, based on human kindness, can give humanity a chance to survive. this Catastrophe on a planetary scale can only be stopped by building a creative society. dear ones, this is very important! A creative society is our only chance to survive.

The only way to save the Earth is with a mass reduction in the number of people.
