Michael Kihlberg: Skolstrejkerna for climate history

While Sweden still slept chanted 30.000 young demonstrators slogans on the streets of Melbourne, skolstrejker have been reported from Hong kong, Thailand, south Korea, India, Europe.

At over 1,600 locations in over one hundred countries joined the hundreds of thousands of young people out on the streets to demand action against climate change.

It is a powerful movement Greta Thunberg has created.

when she began her skolstrejk at Myntorget. On Friday the picture was another; thousands of young people with placard, surged into the square from all directions, it seemed to never end. Yourself, she said from the stage ”It's right here”.

the Movement has become so big that it affects large parts of the society. In klimatsammanhang spoken often about the so-called ”tipping points”, the point at which the change has gone so far as to tip over a threshold and becomes irreversible, impossible to turn back. What then happens is not possible to predict, and it may lead to domino effects that affect other systems.

Friday's global skolstrejker had the magnitude to make that a ”tipping point” has been reached. It is hardly possible for politicians, entrepreneurs or other leaders who are concerned about their reputation to ignore the young people's requirements on the actions of the.

have a variety of the world's leading scientists, the latest time expired and gave the strikers the young people their support. They conclude that the striking young people have the right in their demands, that they follow the science when they require quick action.

Climate change has been known long before today's protestors were even born. Sweden took up the subject in the UN general assembly fifty years ago, the UN intergovernmental panel on climate change IPCC has been in existence for over thirty years.

global warming is ticking steadily on. Greta Thunberg was born in 2003, during the time that she and others in her generation have lived continually have new temperaturrekord set. In the last five years are the warmest recorded globally.

Climate change is already here, the summer with their temperaturrekord and deadly fires were a clear sign of it.

, a kind of catalyst, in klimatsammanhang. She has been invited to speak at global meetings like the economic forum in Davos and the climate change summit in Katowice. World leaders have praised her knowledge and straight statements.

She has also faced much hatred and criticism. A lot of adults, including politicians, have become indignant and felt that she and the other youth should be in school, that it is wrong to let a young man carry such a large burden.

of Course, the young have to bear such a burden, they should not have to strike from the school. The adults are thinking of their own responsibility. What has been done to stem the climate change that has so long been known and discussed? Obviously not enough. Despite numerous warnings are the world now in a situation where we need to set a extremely short time. Had the transition begun earlier, it would have been to be incremental with greater chances to succeed. Young people the world over would not have had to skolstrejka, they had to look forward to a brightening future.

The young skolstrejker has put such pressure on the adult world to a tipping point has been reached. What now happens is unclear but it is urgent, as it stood on a young demonstrants placard; ”Time is running out soon”.
