An oldie but a goodie – The Severn Suzuki UN Earth Summit speech

This speech is still a classic. It is by the environmentalist Severn Suzuki. In 1992 when she gave this speech she was twelve years old. Environmentalism runs in her family. Her father is David Suzuki but that should not taken away from her sincere and powerful message. What she said can be plainly seen by all with their own eyes, and heard with their own ears. Her father brought her up to see and hear these things.

And it is a message still relevant today, if not more.
