She Responds Like Our House is On Fire
It’s nice to see that some people think of health more than others in this world. The ideal state would be when everybody thought of a healthy environment. Greta Thunberg, climate activist, is one such person, who at sixteen and with the spirit of the sword, took the world by storm with her powerful speech at the UN, “You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words. And yet I’m one of the lucky ones. People are suffering. People are dying. Entire ecosystem is collapsing. We are in the beginning of a mass extinction. And all you can talk about is money and fairytales of eternal economic growth. How dare you.” “Change is coming whether they like it or not,” she said, roasting policymakers at the United Nations and Davos and joined a group of kids who filed a landmark case against five of the world’s biggest polluters. It’s not the flashy part in her speeches that gets headlines, but it points to what drives her and what should in theory be driving world leaders.
