And to all of those egotistical dinosaurs and climate-change deniers that prefer to think only of short-term gain and lining their own pockets rather than serving the people and the planet then move over before its too late. We don't want denial, we don't want more lies and platitudes and inaction and mind-blowingly crass and stupid decisions on energy sourcing. Ours is the government that said on day one that it would be the greenest government ever. It then proceeded to remove green energy subsidies, cut Natural England funding to the bone, invest in the fossil fuel industry, support fracking and refuse to do anything meaningful about the illegal persecution of birds of prey by the shooting industry especially on driven grouse moors.
Greta went and addressed world leaders at Davos in January 2019 and has also done a remarkably inspiring Ted Talk which you need to see if you haven't already.
“We have proposed Greta Thunberg because if we do nothing to halt climate change it will be the cause of wars, conflict and refugees,” said Norwegian Socialist MP Freddy André Øvstegård. “Greta Thunberg has launched a mass movement which I see as a major contribution to peace.”
Journalists are now taking notice as they should.
So I say to all readers - talk about this issue with everyone you can and spread the word. And encourage your children and grand-children to take part every Friday in the climate change strikes.
And to Greta I say WOW you are a wonderful inspiration to us all.
