British DJ Fatboy Slim created a mashup of Greta Thunberg’s UN speech into a performance of his song “Right Here, Right Now”. The song has since gone viral on social media
Teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg accused world leaders attending the UN Climate Action Summit of stealing her childhood with their “empty words” on combating climate change.
“This is all wrong. I shouldn’t be standing here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean. Yet you all come to me for hope? How dare you!” the 16-year-old climate activist said.
You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words,” Thunberg said in an emotional speech at the opening of the summit in New York City.
She said the world was not doing enough in combating climate change. “How dare you continue to look away, and come here saying that you are doing enough, when the politics and solutions needed are still nowhere in sight,” Thunberg added.
This is not the first such remix of the speech. A New York musician remixed the speech to a viral death metal track.
