Swedish 16-year-old Greta Thunberg, who visits the venue for the COP25, a UN conference to discuss global warming countermeasures, appeared in an official event with the Spanish ministers, "We can change. ”And stressed the importance of each person acting.

The UN conference “COP25”, which discusses global warming countermeasures held in Spain, was held on the 11th, with the participation of the Japanese Minister of the Environment, Koizumi.

Greta, who spread the movement of young people seeking global warming countermeasures globally, appeared at official events with the host ministers of the host country and gave a speech.

Greta said at the beginning, “I've been giving people's attention with emotional speech so far, but I don't speak today. People look at the phrase but don't remember the facts.” Said.

Furthermore, according to the IPCC = Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the amount of greenhouse gases that can be emitted in the world is only 420 gigatons or less to suppress the rise in global average temperature to 1.5 degrees. He said he hoped COP would “find a comprehensive solution” as the temperature would be unavoidable even if long-term emissions would continue to be “real zero” if emissions continue.

And at the end, “There is still hope. Big events in history have always started with people. You don't have to wait and we can change.” I appealed.

The main focus of COP25 is whether countries can agree by raising greenhouse gas reduction targets, and discussions will continue until 13th of this month.
