By CCN: At a commencement speech at Tulane University in New Orleans, Apple CEO Tim Cook had some harsh words for the parents of Tulane’s class of ’19.

During his speech at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, Cook said:

“In some important ways, my generation has failed you.”

He added:

“We have spent too much time debating, we have been too focused on the fight, and not focused enough on progress.”

Cook made a reference to Hurricane Katrina, which devastated New Orleans in 2005:

“You don’t need to look far to find an example of that failure…Here today, in this very place, where thousands once found desperate shelter from a hundred-year disaster — the kind that seem to be happening more and more frequently — I don’t think we can talk about who we are as people and what we owe to one another without talking about climate change.”
