NEW YORK: As a part of the “Don’t Choose Extinction” campaign by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), a short film was released featuring Dinosaur on the UN General Assembly podium.
The violent entry of dinosaur into the assembly made the diplomats in apprehension. It adjusts the mic in the podium and starts its speech.
Listen up people,
I know a thing or two about extinction,
and let me tell you,
and you’d kind of thing this would be obvious
going extinct is a bad thing.
It then advises world leaders and diplomats on the reduction of fossil fuel subsidies which results in the severe climate crisis. It finally concluded, “Don’t choose extinction, Save your species before it’s too late”.
According to UNDP, the world spends the astounding US $423 billion annually to subsidise fossil fuels for consumers – oil, the electricity that is generated by the burning of other fossil fuels, gas, and coal. This could cover the cost of COVID-19 vaccinations for every person in the world, or pay for three times the annual amount needed to eradicate global extreme poverty.
