Vietnam News claim: ‘Climate inaction tantamount to violence’

By Thu Vân

HÀ NỘI — We cannot ignore it: Climate Strike, initiated by 16-year-old activist Greta Thunberg, has spread across the globe, and its impact has been immense.

The strikes, which have gathered millions of people all over the world to call for climate action, demand that governments stop burning fossil fuels and ensure a rapid energy revolution with equity, reparations and climate justice.

Professional climate change skeptic Marc Morano from the United States, however, mocked the other day that reason for Climate Strike was appealing to young people was because Greta “sells fear”.

He might be true. Climate change impacts should scare our kids, because they will be the ones who bear the consequences in 11 years.

Why 11 years? The United Nations estimates that we have only 11 years left to head off irreversible damage to the Earth’s ecosystems.
