On September 20th, 2019 Millions of young people marched through the streets of cities worldwide to rescue their future and call for action.
There is no more debate. The science is clear and coming in from every direction.
Planet Earth, your home, is on the edge of ecological collapse.
Corporations and irresponsible government are driving that collapse, and if they are not stopped will cause an irreversible chain reaction across the globe.
If you let that happen, it will not only be the end of human civilisation as we know it, but the beginning of suffering beyond anything we have seen before in recorded human history. Your children, the ones you claim to love, will suffer most.
We need immediate and radical change.
A global system is responsible for this crisis.
It gives power to the few,
And lets them profit from destruction,
While lying to the people.
We do not need that system.
We can change it.
We must change it.
The world's corporate controlled financial and political system puts global power in the hands of a tiny group of people, almost all of whom use that power to create and perpetuate the fantasy of perpetual growth and consumerism in order to continue making them disgusting rich. How rich?
Because of this system the richest 26 people have as much financial wealth as the 3.8 billion people who make up the poorest half of the planet’s population.
This is disgusting.
The richest 100 people on earth have more financial resources than the poorest ,
Our planet can sustain well balanced human need.
It cannot sustain perpetually increasing consumption.
All around the planet ecological systems are collapsing. Entire species are now being wiped out at a rate we have never seen before.
We are heading straight for a mass extinction event.
The current rate of extinction is over 200 species per day. 200 individual species, completely wiped out, every day. This is the beginning of a planet wide ecological collapse. Put down whatever you think is more important than this. If you love your children, you must help us to save them. Unless we change this world now, your children have no future. Human civilisation cannot survive this.
What most people do not seem understand is that we are facing a future of cascading collapses. They do not understand this because they have not been told. They have not been told because the reason for the collapses is also in control of the media. How controlled is the mass media?
The system has never been more effective at concentrating power in the hands of a few than it is today.
In 1983 90% of American Media was owned by just 50 companies. In 2011, the same 90% was controlled by just 6.
That system does not, and will not, tell you what is really happening because if it does you will stand up and overcome it. So here I am, telling you what is really happening. I am a trained engineer, hold a masters in renewable energy systems and have years of experience at the top of the intech sector. I see through the algorithms they have designed, and the ways they are manipulating human consciousness.
I am on the streets with these young people, I took these pictures, and I am telling you what is really happening. You have not seen anything like this on your television, have you? How could that be, if you were being told the truth. You are not. You are being lied to. Soon, millions will realize this. They will be on the streets, and it will be no longer be possible to hide us.
If ecological systems are allowed to collapse, all modern economic systems will collapse with them. They all depend on natural ecosystems, and if nature collapses it will not recover for at least a hundred years, so you will never live in a world like this again.
For those who think economic collapse is a bad thing, let me now share with you a secret that has been hidden until this time:
Only the bad guys serve money.
When money is gone, good people still do good.
Good people will gather, and we will build. The evil will be left in their own isolation, having no love for anyone else and not supporting this cause. They will starve first. The system will not recover. The good will outlast them. The good will endure.
Collapse the system, and we will have a better world.
The best thing we can do is to purposely collapse the worlds economic systems. A controlled demolition of an incredible dangerous structure. A hazard to all human life. Remove the virus from the host. We don't need capitalism anymore. Good people, worldwide, are willing to do what is needed to rebuild this world and ensure everyone has food and shelter. We vastly outnumber the evil and the selfish, so don't worry.
When the economic systems collapse, the mining stops. The drilling stops, and the funding for war stops. We have to take their resources away. We have to completely stop them from operating in this way anymore.
It will not be easy, but it will be a lot easier than an ecological holocaust.
It must be done. It simply must be done.
We are ready for change. This world is ready for true leaders.
Leaders who will sail across the ocean for 15 days to tell the evil beings doing harm on this planet time that their time is up. We outnumber you millions to one, and our patience for your learning has run out. It is time for the judgement to begin, and you are on the wrong side of the law.
Either join us, and help change this world fast, or stand on the side of the devil. We are kicking him and his team out of everything,
so take this as your eviction notice.
and they will if we do not work immediately begin to work in harmony with Earths natural ecological systems, then the consequences will be biblical in scale. Unbreathable air. Famine. Plagues. All these things will come upon you. Humanity will be wiped out before the ecology. In some places, where the people do not naturally work together, it will be a hellish world. In almost all of the Earth the natural beauty that we today take for granted will be gone. A world where two thirds of animal species are in decline, and the remaining third are soon to follow. A world where the oceans have more plastic than fish, and the rainforests are unable to sustain their rain because they are surrounded by desert winds after raging fires and rising temperatures lead to a critical point of ecological collapse, where the forest could not continue growing and healing at a rate fast enough to stop its collapse. If this rainforest collapses, we will lose 70% of all species on planet Earth. We have got to stop this. There is a way.
Unless you happen to one of the few who has been learning about this yourself or listening to the amazing Greta's Thunberg, then this will be the first time you are receiving this information.
You will not understand what that means oIf we do not change the system immediately then in a few short years they will have collapsed to a point that is irreversible. Some linear models of this are estimating it will occur in about 11 years, but this is a mistake. Ecological systems are not linear. They only appear linear at the macroscopic scale when everything is working in harmony. When the pollinators go, everything goes.
Well the pollinators are going.
If we do not wake up right now, they will soon be gone.
They will take everything else with them.
Adults are failing to stand up for the children.
The ones who will suffer most are the children.
But the children are rising
To stand for us all
Over 100,000 stood up London.
Young women took the lead
In calling the world
to rise against the system
that is destroying the earth
And stealing their future.
Today there were 100,000
Soon there will be many more
and they are not afraid
Who are you protecting.
of those who protect
the system responsible
for destroying this planet
They did not come to negotiate
they've come to unite
and save the world
From those who can't see
For way too long, the politicians and the people in power have gotten away with not doing anything to fight the climate crisis, but we will make sure that they will not get away with it any longer.
- Greta Thunberg
Over 70% of world biodiversity is concentrated in just these areas.
Simply banning industrial operations in these areas is essential to protecting our planet, but we must also monitor populations closely and ban the use of all chemicals and practices that are harmful to the ecological recover of our planet.
It is important to take away all restrictions to the people working for ecological and environmental sustainability today. We have to massively increase our funding of wildlife recovery centres and field working teams who manage major reserves and protect them from poaching. These teams will be given the resources to exand their territories every year and given more resources according to the amount of new habitat developed, meaning a fast recovery is given even more resources to ensure it is maintained as rapidly as can be. This will see some miracles of resource recovery that change our perception of how quickly we can rebuild our ecological world.
Africa is an essential part of preserving our natural world and rebuilding the paradise this planet once was. If we are to really change the world, it must be lead by Africa. This crisis many be the biggest mankind has ever faced, but it also offers the incredible opportunity for complete transformation. If we do this right, we can emerge from this crisis into a sustainable and more equal world. With what is relatively little investment for the developed world, but huge investment for African nations, we can help the developing world become completely sustainable from the start, both economically and ecologically. Many are already far ahead of western nations and cities, but for clean energy and scale they will need help. for example by banning plastic.
UK's First Large-Scale Eco-Village
Biomass boiler. Solar panels and Energy-Efficient Appliances
Onsite car Sharing
Local materials, 52% of costruction materials sourced from within 35 miles of the project.
15% of the materials used were reclaimed and nearly all steel used in the building was reused.
Water-efficient washing machines, toilets and showers use almost 40% less than the average home.

Sustainability is the only growth model that can work, because by definition, everything else is unsustainable.
A 27 year study across 63 nature protection reserves in Germany showed that less than a quarter of flying insects remain.
"Our analysis estimates a seasonal decline of 76%, and mid-summer decline of 82% in flying insect biomass over the 27 years of study. We show that this decline is apparent regardless of habitat type, while changes in weather, land use, and habitat characteristics cannot explain this overall decline”.
“Insects make up about two-thirds of all life on Earth [but] there has been some kind of horrific decline, We appear to be making vast tracts of land inhospitable to most forms of life, and are currently on course for ecological Armageddon. If we lose the insects then everything is going to collapse.” -
Dave Goulson, Professor of Biology and specialist in the ecology, behaviour and conservation of pollinators at Sussex University, UK
The destruction of this planet has been enormously profitable for the richest people in the world, according to a study published in Scientific American the top 20% of US households - who own and work for the corporations that carry out this destruction on a global scale, now own more than 84% of the financial wealth. The bottom 40%, over 130 Million people, hold less than 0.3%.
The Walton family, for example, has more wealth than 42% of American families combined.
We live in a world governed by people who are either ignorant of the unbelievable damage they are doing or who are fundamentally evil. No one can understand the consequences of these actions and continue them without being profoundly corrupt within. Such people should never be in a position of power and it is time we removed them. It is time for good people to stand up and do something. To overcome all of the evil in this world. To show them that we have had enough.
“We are essentially destroying the very life support systems that allow us to sustain our existence on the planet, along with all the other life on the planet,” Lister said. “It is just horrifying to watch us decimate the natural world like this.”
“The frogs and birds had also declined simultaneously by about 50% to 65%,” Lister said. The population of one dazzling green bird that eats almost nothing but insects, the Puerto Rican tody, dropped by 90%."
“I don’t think most people have a systems view of the natural world,” he said. “But it’s all connected and when the invertebrates are declining the entire food web is going to suffer and degrade. It is a system-wide effect.”
Here is what we have to do over the next few years.
We have to starve the corporations responsible of any kind of support from the people as a whole. That means no more of your business, none of your money at all, no more of your labour, none of your products, none of your services, none of your help is to go to these large corporates until they collapse. We must collapse them before they collapse the planet.
The planet can hold on for just a few short years longer, but thanks to their unimaginable greed these corporates cannot. Almost all of them rely upon bonds and cheap debt to carry out their horrendous activities. Without our support and funding, they will collapse.
Yes the corrupt banks and governments will support them because they are all together in this evil, but we can starve them too. Take all of your money, and put it into one of the banks that does not support the evil corporations. If just 10% of the population do this, which is much less than the number who are concerned about the state of our planet, then the corporates will collapse very quickly afterwards.
100 million hectares of tropical forest were lost from 1980 to 2000.
Cattle ranching in Latin America cost the planet about 42 million hectares of tropical rainforest.
Palm oil plantations (used mostly in food, cosmetics, cleaning products and fuel) in South-East Asia cost about 7.5 million hectares of tropical forrest.
Nearly 75% of freshwater resources and more than a third of the world’s land surface are now used for crop or livestock production.
The value of agricultural crop production has increased by about 300% since 1970.
Raw timber harvest has risen by 45%.
Approximately 60 billion tons of renewable and nonrenewable resources are now extracted globally every year – almost doubling since 1980.
Land degradation due to intensive industrial farming and the use of pesticides and chemicals has reduced the productivity of 23% of the global land surface.
Up to US$577 billion in annual income from global crops are at risk from pollinator loss.
100-300 million people are at increased risk of floods and hurricanes because of loss of coastal habitats and protection.
In 2015, 33% of marine fish stocks were being harvested at unsustainable levels.
60% of fish stocks are maximally fished, with just 7% harvested at levels lower than what is sustainable.
Urban areas have more than doubled since 1992.
Plastic pollution has increased tenfold since 1980.
300-400 million tons of heavy metals, solvents, toxic sludge and other wastes from industrial facilities are dumped annually into the world’s waters. This, combined with agricultural fertilisers entering coastal ecosystems has produced more than 400 ocean ‘dead zones’, totalling an area greater than 245,000 km2 (591-595) – an area larger than the United Kingdom.
At least a quarter of the global land area is traditionally owned, managed, used or occupied by Indigenous Peoples. These areas include approximately 35% of the area that is formally protected, and approximately 35% of all remaining terrestrial areas with very low human intervention.
Nature managed by Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities is under increasing pressure but is generally declining less rapidly than in other lands – although 72% of local indicators developed and used by Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities show the deterioration of nature that underpins local livelihoods.
The areas of the world projected to experience significant negative effects from global changes in climate, biodiversity, ecosystem functions and nature’s contributions to people are also areas in which large concentrations of Indigenous Peoples and many of the world’s poorest communities reside.
Regional and global scenarios currently lack and would benefit from an explicit consideration of the views, perspectives and rights of Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities, their knowledge and understanding of large regions and ecosystems, and their desired future development pathways. Recognition of the knowledge, innovations and practices, institutions and values of Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities and their inclusion and participation in environmental governance often enhances their quality of life, as well as nature conservation, restoration and sustainable use. Their positive contributions to sustainability can be facilitated through national recognition of land tenure, access and resource rights in accordance with national legislation, the application of free, prior and informed consent, and improved collaboration, fair and equitable sharing of benefits arising from the use, and co-management arrangements with local communities.
“The vast wealth and power of corporations is at the heart of so many of the world’s problems – like inequality and climate change. The drive for short-term profits today seems to trump basic human rights for millions of people on the planet. Yet there are very few ways that citizens can hold these corporations to account for their behaviour. Rather, through trade and investment deals, it is corporations which are able to demand that governments do their bidding.
“The UK government has facilitated this rise in corporate power – through tax structures, trade deals and even aid programmes that help big business. Disgracefully it also routinely opposes the call of developing countries to hold corporations to account for their human rights impacts at the UN. That’s why today we’re joining campaigns from across the world to tell the British government not to block this international demand for justice.”
