私欲で固まった人の感情に訴えたい

正しい知識は必要なわけだけど、

正しい知識に感情が勝つんだよねー。
アメリカ映画やTVドラマの大統領の描き方とか見ていると(日本のドラマを見ていないので総理大臣のことは知らない)
いかに、好感度を高めるか、みたいなことにいっぱい労力をとっている。

ちょっと、得体不明なHorisonProjectとかいう団体が出したグラフだけど、これ、かなり怖い。
(何かしらの、操作があるかもしれない。そこまで調べてないので、後々不備が見つかったらごめんね)

マグニチュード6-8の地震が世界で起こった数のグラフらしい。
(横軸が1900年だけだった! それ以前のデータがないのかもしれないけど、「活動期に入った」という説あり

このグラフを見てから、
1992年当時12歳のSevern Suzukiちゃんのリオでの環境サミットでのスピーチ


を見ると、私はやる気になったぞ!
このままいくと、アダムが主題歌を歌った2012年が現実になるんじゃないの?って、思っちゃうわよ。
今こそ、全体的な地球のことを考えて、抜本的に生活を見直す時だ!
蓮舫さんのように、誰が損する、誰が得する、みたいなのまったく考えずに、独断でばっさりと!

でも、これをブログに書こうと思ったのは、英語が手に入ったからであって、運動の主導者になろうとかじゃないんですすいません。

TJ様がブログで英語をおこしてくれてるので自分の勉強のためにはらせていただきます!(無断ですみません!)

Hello, I'm Severn Suzuki speaking for E.C.O. - The Environmental Children's organization.
We are a group of twelve and thirteen-year-olds trying to make a difference:
Vanessa Suttie, Morgan Geisler, Michelle Quigg and me.

We raised all the money to come here ourselves to come six thousand miles to tell you adults
you must change your ways.
Coming up here today, I have no hidden agenda. I am fighting for my future.
Losing my future is not like losing an election or a few points on the stock market.
I am here to speak for all generations to come.

I am here to speak on behalf of the starving children around the world whose cries go unheard.
I am here to speak for the countless animals dying across this planet because they have nowhere left to go.

I am afraid to go out in the sun now because of the holes in the ozone.
I am afraid to breathe the air because I don't know what chemicals are in it.

I used to go fishing in Vancouver my home with my dad until just a few years ago
we found the fish full of cancers.
And now we hear about animals and plants going extinct every day - vanishing forever.

In my life, I have dreamt of seeing the great herds of wild animals, jungles and rainforests
full of birds and butterflies,
but now I wonder if they will even exist for my children to see.

Did you have to worry about these little things when you were my age?
All this is happening before our eyes and yet we act as if we have all the time we want
and all the solutions.

I'm only a child and I don't have all the solutions, but I want you to realize, neither do you!
You don't know how to fix the holes in our ozone layer.
You don't know how to bring the salmon back up a dead stream.
You don't know how to bring back an animal now extinct.
And you can't bring back the forests that once grew where there is now desert.
If you don't know how to fix it, please stop breaking it!

Here, you may be delegates of your governments, business people, organizers , reporters or politicians -
but really you are mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, aunts and uncles -
and all of you are someone's child.

I'm only a child yet I know we are all part of a family, five billion strong,
in fact, 30 million species strong and borders and governments will never change that.
I'm only a child yet I know we are all in this together and should act as one single world towards one
single goal.
In my anger, I am not blind, and in my fear, I am not afraid of telling the world how I feel.

In my country, we make so much waste, we buy and throw away, buy and throw away,
buy and throw away, and yet northern countries will not share with the needy.
Even when we have more than enough,
we are afraid to share we are afraid to let go of some of our wealth, afraid to share.

In Canada, we live the privileged life, with plenty of food, water and shelter -
we have watches, bicycles, computers and television sets.
The list could go on for two days.
Two days ago here in Brazil, we were shocked when we spent some time with some children living
on the streets.
And this is what one child told us: "I wish I was rich and if I were,
I would give all the street children food, clothes, medicines, shelter and love and affection."
If a child on the street who has nothing, is willing to share,
why are we who have everything still so greedy? I can't stop thinking that these children are my age,
that it makes a tremendous difference where you are born,
that I could be one of those children living in the Favellas of Rio;
I could be a child starving in Somalia; a victim of war in the Middle East or a beggar in India.

I'm only a child yet I know if all the money spent on war was spent on finding environmental answers,
ending poverty, and funding treaties, what a wonderful place this earth would be!

At school, even in kindergarten, you teach us how to behave in the world. You teach us:
to not to fight with others,
to work things out,
to respect others,
to clean up our mess,
not to hurt other creatures
to share - not be greedy
Then why do you go out and do the things you tell us not to do?

Do not forget why you're attending these conferences, who you're doing this for -
we are your own children.

You are deciding what kind of the world we are growing up in.
Parents should be able to comfort their children by saying "everything's going to be alright',
"it's not the end of the world" and "we're doing the best we can" .
But I don't think you can say that to us anymore. Are we even on your list of priorities?
My dad always says "You are what you do, not what you say."
Well, what you do makes me cry at night.
You grown-ups say you love us. But I challenge you, please make your actions reflect your words.

Thank you.
