Greta Thunberg - Youth Climate Activist

Greta Thunberg
Global Youth Climate Activist

This page focuses on, Greta Thunberg, a teenager from Sweden who, becoming shocked by adults' gross inaction to address the climate crisis, particularly in light of recent IPCC reports, started (Aug. 2018) skipping school on Fridays to protest outside the Swedish parliament until her government fully enacted the Paris CC agreement. By mid-2019, her local action has gone global - with millions of students and others around the world going on strike on several occasions, and she being named Time mag. Person of 2019!

From local to global action!!

'Greta Effect'
Besides her obvious commitment to this cause, Ms. Thunberg happens to possess amazing and increasing public speaking talents - typically speaking truth to power! Her speeches have been so well-received (and 'trashed,' mainly by Rightists) that they have been combined into a book and she has worked with prominent activists, like George Monbiot. She also was sailed across the Atlantic in August 2019 to continue her actions in the Americas - such as at the UN in NYC. Now, San Francisco has a mural dedicated to her and her work. Most recently, she spoke at the UN Climate Summit in Spain.
