Climate change is real and it is happening, as we speak. Although some world leaders may want you to think that is a Chinese hoax, we are at the verge of losing our only planet to unhabitable conditions and if not checked, it wouldn’t be long before we are rendered helpless. To remind us of the same, child climate activist Greta Thunberg who delivered a powerful and thought-provoking speech at the UN’s Climate Action Summit in New York. The young girl questioned world leaders about their empty promises and hit them with ‘How dare you?’. Needless to say, Greta’s words have echoed the sentiments of a lot of people. Even celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio shared her speech hoping it would reach more.
On the home front, Bollywood stars including Priyanka Chopra took to Instagram to post the same with and even moving caption and wrote, “How dare we fail you… and what audacity we have to not want to help you save what’s left. Thank you @gretathunberg for giving us the much-needed punch in the face, for bringing your generation together and showing us that we need to know better, do more to save what is most critical. At the end of the day, we only have this one planet. #howdareyou”
Not just her, Alia Bhatt also re-grammed the speech and put it as, “Listen. Learn. Think. Act!!
Even Kajol took the help of Twitter to express her views and penned, “I have no words….. such an impactful speech by the young climate activist @GretaThunberg It’s about time we start listening and acting. As she rightly said ‘Change is coming, whether you like it or not’!!”
Needless to say, the time to act is NOW.
