GRETA THUNBERG spricht in neuem Video von THE 1975 – Erlös geht an „Extinction Rebellion“

Geschätzte Lesezeit: 3 Minute(n)

The 1975 leiten jedes Album mit einem nach der Band betitelten Song ein: The 1975! Jetzt gibt es eine komplett neue Version des Songs, die die Briten mit Text und einem Lyric-Video ausstatten, fĂŒr das sie einen ganz besonderen Gast gewinnen konnten, der das Anliegen der Band mehr als deutlich macht. Es geht um die Angst vor den Auswirkungen des Klimawandels und zum ersten Mal ĂŒberhaupt, tritt hier die aktive Kraft der Stunde, die schwedische Klimaaktivistin Greta Thunberg, musikalisch in Erscheinung. Zu den Sounds der Band aus Manchester prangert sie, passend zum heißesten Tag des Jahres, erneut politische MissstĂ€nde an und fordert die Regierungen auf, sich endlich entschlossen dem menschengemachten Klimawandel entgegenzustellen und sich stĂ€rker fĂŒr den Klima- und Umweltschutz einzusetzen, denn noch ist es nicht zu spĂ€t, schnelles Handeln ist aber erforderlich! Die Band selbst drĂ€ngt Ihre Fans darauf, aufzuwachen, sich zu engagieren, denn es ist Zeit zu rebellieren!

Die mit dem Track eingespielten Einnahmen fließen ĂŒbrigens auf persönlichen Wunsch von Greta Thunberg komplett an die Organisation „Extinction Rebellion“, die mit verschiedensten Aktionen gegen die politische UntĂ€tigkeit von Regierungen mobil macht.


Die kompletten Lyrics von Greta Thunberg:


„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 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 a civilisation 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.
