In a speech on Monday, Greta Thunberg, Swedish climate activist, told governments that “you are still not mature enough to tell it like it is. You are failing us. But the young people are starting to understand your betrayal”.Greta accused past genaration’s of”stealing her dreams and childhood”. She wants world leaders to help her in her quest to save our planet. Some people dislike Miss Thunberg’s work on climate change. For example; Two leading French MPs for the conservative Les Republicains party called the Swedish teenager a “guru of the apocalypse. Others, like myself, believe Greta is an inspirational figure and support her work in raising awareness of the challenges facing our planet.
Greta appeals for us all in her statement “Don’t listen to me, listen to the scientists because they have the knowledge and we have the action. Together we can make a difference”!
