Dear young people, no - the older generation didn't mess up your world

10 January 2019

At the recent UN summit, 15-year-old Greta Thunberg said that grown-ups had messed up the world. She was just the latest to express a common idea - in recent years lots of people have suggested the same. By failing to tackle climate change, the older generation has "betrayed" the young. In this video, I try to give a different perspective - one that goes to common ground, rather than turning important issues into "us versus them".
