Greta Thunberg speech

Greta Thunberg is a 16-year-old girl from Sweden. She is born on the 3rd of January 2003.

She is a young girl who wants to see the world live another day.

Greta puts the earth life, before her own, when school started in august, she went on a school strike for the climate.

She talks to the world about how earth is now, and how the earth will look like if we keep doing like we do now.

In this text we will take a closer look at how she uses her language and words in her speech to the UN secretary general António Guterres.

The first thing I will write about is the use of logos. In her speech, Greta uses logos which is factual and rational arguments.

She uses a lot of facts and things her country and the world need to do before it’s to late.

An example of this is the sentence “For 25 years, countless people have stood in the front of the United Nations climate conferences, asking our nations’ leader to stop the emissions”.

She also writes “in today’s society we lose over 200 species every single day”.

These 2 sentences show us how far it has gone and how devasted we are going to be if we don’t change now.

The future is almost gone if we don’t stop the climate changes now. The second thing I will write about is the use of pathos.

In her speech, she uses pathos which is arguments that appeals to people’s feelings. She uses words that can be taken dead serious and will hit a human heart.

An example of this is the sentence “This is so that people in poorer countries can heighten their standard of living by building some of the infrastructure we have already built, such as hospitals, electricity and clean drinking water”.

This sentence shows us that people in richer countries should feel bad, because they are one of the reasons why, the world is going under.
