A new ad produced by the United Nations and uploaded to its Twitter on Wednesday features a large dinosaur attending a UN event, going up to the podium and speaking.
The dinosaur in question can be seen lumbering up to the podium, adjusting the mic amid feedback, and then he speaks English in a human voice, saying:
"Listen up, people. You're headed for a climate disaster. And yet, every year, governments spend hundreds of billions of public funds on fossil fuel subsidies."
"Imagine if we'd spent hundreds of billions per year on subsidizing giant meteors," continued the unnamed dinosaur, referring to the fact that we think that the age of dinosaurs on earth was ended by giant meteor. "That's what you're doing right now!"
The dinosaur continues, as all eyes in the house are fixed on it:
"Around the world, people are living in poverty. Don't you think helping them would make more sense than – I don't know – paying for the demise of our entire species?"
The dinosaur continues with its narrative, sounding very much like Greta Thunberg did in Aug. 2021 during one of her speeches:
"You've got a huge opportunity right now as you rebuild your economies and bounce back from this pandemic. So, here's my wild idea: don't choose extinction! Save your species before it's too late."
"It's time for you humans to stop making excuses and start making changes. Thank you."
Not everybody is in board with the UN's stance on climate change, however, animated publicity notwithstanding. On Sept. 23 2019, a group of 500 scientists from all over the world sent a letter to the UN protesting what they called "alarmism" on the UN's part.
