the assembly will hear an address by his excellency boris johnson prime minister first lord of the treasury and minister for the civil service of the united kingdom of great britain and northern ireland may i request protocol to escort his excellency i have great pleasure in welcoming his excellency boris johnson prime minister first lord of the treasury and minister for the civil service of the united kingdom of great britain and northern ireland i invite him to address the assembly well thank you very much mr president uh your excellencies ladies and gentlemen thank you to all of you you faithful few have waited to the end of this a very very important session and very good to see by uh my my audience uh uh over there listen uh folks an inspection of the fossil record over the last 178 million years which is since mammals first appeared reveals that the average mammalian species that’s where all that were all mammals uh exists for about a million years before it evolves into something else or else uh vanishes into extinction and of our allotted lifespan of a million years humanity homo sapiens has been around for about 200 000 years in other words we’re still collectively a youngster if you imagine that million years as the lifespan of an individual human being about 80 years then we’re now sweet 16. we’ve come to that fateful age when we know roughly how to drive and we know how to unlock the drinks cabinet and to engage in all sorts of activity that is not only a potentially embarrassing but also terminal for ourselves and and others in the words of the oxford philosopher toby ord were just old enough to get ourselves into serious trouble and i’m afraid we believe we still cling with parts of our minds to the infantile belief that the world was made for our gratification and pleasure and we combine this narcissism with an assumption of our own immortality we believe that someone else will clear up the mess because that is what someone else has always done and we trash our habitats again and again with the inductive reasoning that we’ve got it we’ve got away with it so far and therefore we’ll get away with it again my friends the adolescence of humanity is coming to an end and must come to an end we’re approaching that critical turning point in less than two months in just over 40 days when we must show that we are capable of learning and maturing and finally taking responsibility for the destruction we are inflicting not just upon our planet but upon ourselves it’s time for humanity to grow up it’s time for us to listen to the warnings of the scientists and if you look at covid uh if you want to see an example of the gloomy scientist being proved right it’s time for us to grow up and understand who we are and what we are doing the world this precious blue sphere with its eggshell crust and wisp of an atmosphere is not some indestructible toy some bouncy plastic romper room against which we can hurl ourselves to our hearts content daily weekly we are doing such irreversible damage that long before a million years are up we will have made this beautiful planet effectively uninhabitable not just for us but for many other species and that is why the glasgow cop 26 summit is the turning point for humanity we must limit the rise in temperatures whose appalling effects were visible even this summer to 1.5 degrees we we must come together in a collective coming of age we must show that we have the maturity and wisdom to act and we can even in this past 16 years as it were this feckless youth that we’ve just passed we’ve shown our skill we’ve harnessed clean energy from wind and wave and sun we’ve released energy from within the atom itself and from hydrogen we found ways to store that energy in increasingly capacious batteries and even in molten salt we have the tools for a green industrial revolution we’ve got the kit but time is desperately short two days ago uh here in in new york uh we had a session in which we heard from the leaders of the nations most threatened by climate change the marshall islands the maldives mr president Bangladesh and many others and they spoke of the hurricanes and the flooding and the fires caused by the extreme meteorological conditions the world is already seeing and the tragedy is that because of our past in action there are further rises in temperatures that are already baked in and my friends baked is the word if we keep on the current track then the temperatures will go up by 2.7 degrees or more by the end of the century and never mind what that will do to the ice flows dissolving like ice in your martini here in new york we will see desertification drought crop failure and mass movements of humanity on a scale not seen before not because of some unforeseen natural event or disaster but because of us because of what we are doing now and our grandchildren will know that we are the culprits and they will know that we knew that we were warned and they will know that it was this generation that came center stage to speak and act on behalf of them on behalf of posterity and that we missed our cue and they will ask themselves what kind of people we were to be so selfish and so short-sighted in just 40 days time we need the world to come to glasgow to make the commitments necessary and we’re not talking i’m afraid about stopping the rise in temperatures we can’t do that it’s too late to stop the rise in temperatures but to restrain that growth as i say to 1.5.
