    The 1975 (NOACF)

    Riktigt proffsigt att stryka lite grejer
    Jag tänker det här, det hör inte riktigt hemma här

    We are right now in the beginning of a climate and ecological crisis
    And  we need to call it what it is
    An  emergency
    We must acknowledge that we do not have the situation under control
    And  that we don't have all the solutions yet
    Unless those solutions mean that we simply stop doing certain things
    We must admit that we are losing this battle
    We have to acknowledge that the older generations have failed
    All  political movements in their present form have failed
    But Homo sapiens have not yet failed
    Yes, we are failing, but there is still time to turn everything around
    We can still fix this
    We still have everything in our own hands
    But unless we recognise the overall failures of our current systems
    We most probably don't stand a chance

    We are facing a disaster of unspoken sufferings for enormous amounts of people
    And now is not the time for speaking politely or focusing on what we can or cannot say
    Now is the time to speak clearly
    Solving the climate crisis is the greatest and most complex challenge that Homo sapiens have ever faced
    The main solution, however, is so simple that even a small child can understand it
    We have to stop our emissions of greenhouse gases
    And either we do that, or we don't
    You say that nothing in life is black or white
    But that is a lie, a very dangerous lie
    Either we prevent a 1.5 degree of warming, or we don't
    Either we avoid setting off that irreversible chain reaction beyond human control, or we don't
    Either we choose to go on as our civilization, or we don't
    That is as black or white as it gets
    Because there are no grey areas when it comes to survival

    Now, we all have a choice
    We can create transformational action that will safeguard the living conditions for future generations
    Or we can continue with our business as usual and fail
    That is up to you and me
    And yes, we need a system change rather than individual change
    But you cannot have one without the other
    If you look through history
    All the big changes in society have been started by people at the grassroots level
    People like you and me
    So, I ask you to please wake up and make the changes required possible
    To do your best is no longer good enough
    We must all do the seemingly impossible
    Today, we use about 100 million barrels of oil every single day
    There are no politics to change that
    There are no rules to keep that oil in the ground
    So, we can no longer save the world by playing by the rules
    Because the rules have to be changed
    Everything needs to change, and it has to start today
    So, everyone out there, it is now time for civil disobedience
    It is time to rebel
