    Most amazing speech I ever heard. Coming from a 16 year old.

    She’s a thunderclap.

    So, questionable to post this here, but it does relate, and it’s worth the full read:

    “….by any rigorous logic, the faster arrival of catastrophic impacts argues not for fatalism but for more ambition in response, deployed more quickly and more widely, especially to protect those already suffering.”

    Wallace Wells mentions but does not link to something about sea level rise. Here’s the link:

      A little whine with my cheese: I prefer using Miami (or the Maldives or Nauru) over places like Jakarta (or Louisiana or Houston) because their primary problem is sea-level rise from ocean expansion, rather than from subsidence (natural and/or extraction-related). Likewise, I prefer to use record rain as examples rather than flooding, since flooding has lots of other contributing factors (e.g., subsidence or poor terrain management). For coral reef degradation I would choose those suffering from heat or ocean acidification, avoid citing those reefs which have been poisoned or abused for years by pollution.

    Brilliant and the full speech on Greta’s website is even better.
