⁣ Finally our voice is being heard, HOPEFULLY :-) According to CNN, Lawmakers in the UK Parliament have declared "an environment and climate emergency," making it the first country in the world to do so, according to the opposition Labour Party. The motion was called by Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn.⁣ The move comes a week after 16-year-old Swedish student Greta Thunberg addressed UK lawmakers to demand more climate action, and in the wake of protests by climate action group Extinction Rebellion, who blocked major landmarks in London.⁣ ⁣ "We cannot solve an emergency without treating it like an emergency.", said 16-year-old Swedish student Greta Thunberg to the members of UK Parliament. ⁣ ⁣ Our comment on this: ⁣ 1 - Well, we have heard the talking, now we are expecting some actions ...⁣ 2 - The rest of the world should just watch & learn ... specially our own backyard, Scandinavian Politicians !!!⁣ --------------------***--------------------⁣ Source: CNN -⁣ Photo: Chris Lawton on Unsplash⁣ …………………………………….⁣ ‘All rights to go to the author of the news & image as mentioned above’⁣ -------------------------------------------⁣ Relevant:⁣ # #SolarEdition⁣
