Watch Greta Thunberg’s biggest speech in front of half a million people in Montreal, edited by Seb Alex from a vegan, Climate Save Movement perspective. Greta Thunberg: I have not heard much on the subject of a “carbon budget” from politicians, the media or business people. But what’s left in our carbon budget is of utmost importance if we are not to pass the point of warming the Earth to 1.5 C. We have 8.5 years left before we reach the point of no return for tipping points. For more, please check out the Climate Save Movement section below.

Still we are grateful for the opportunity to have been able to give them some moments of tenderness and share their fate with the world.
Making the faces of the victims visible is the only thing that will ever bring this horrible industry to an end. We see you and we are trying. We are tirelessly fighting for you. ”
