My name is Leah. Somebody. I have not come to offer any prepared remarks at this hearing. I’M instead attaching my test Tony. It is the ipcc special report on global warming of 1.5 degrees Celsius, BSR 1.5, which was released on October, 8th 2018. I am submitting this report as my testimony, because I don’t want you to listen to me. I want you to listen to the scientists and I want you to put tonight behind the scene and then I want you to take real action. Despite recent emissions reductions, the United States is currently the second highest emitting country in the world annually and, although we ranked number 2 now, the United States is responsible for the most carbon pollution accumulated in the atmosphere. Some people say that the United States should not dramatically reduce our emissions, because China and other countries aren’t doing enough. I am from Sweden, small country and that it is the same arguments. Why should we do anything? Just look at the US, they say so just so. You know that’s that it’s being used against you as well, how can we get more young people involved, how we can get more young people involved and I think to just tell them the truth tell them how it is and because, when I found out how it Actually was that Furious? So I was, I wanted to do something about it, and that is the least I spoken to many, and I think that is the experience menu because, as it is now, people in general don’t seem to be very aware of the actual science and the how severe This crisis, actually is so I just think we to inform them and start treating this crisis like like the existential emergency it is, then, I think people will understand and want to do something about it.
