Do you know that little girl Greta Thunberg? Amazingly, the 16-year old girl is not only good at giving speeches but also she is good at answering world leaders in a very polite and humble way.
Who is Greta Thunberg?
Greta Thunberg is a 16-year-old Swedish environmental activist on climate change, she got the recognition worldwide for her climate change campaign. Thunberg has a very blunt, straightforward way of speaking in both public and leader meetings.
Recently, Time Magazine honored her with the title ‘Person of the Year’ and became the world’s first 16-year-old to get the title.
At the UN 2019 summit, Greta urged the world political leaders to stop working as per their ‘creative PR’ to avoid the real action. Since then, she becomes the voice of the public to get in action
This year Thunberg was also nominated for Noble Peace Prize. But with the end of the year, she has been chosen as the Person of the Year by ‘Time Magazine’ after which the conspiracy started.
How Greta is Campaigning?
At the age of 15, Greta was diagnosed with a syndrome for her extreme anger for her particular thing. Marking her syndrome Greta calls it a ‘superpower’. Greta managed it to take her syndrome to the positive side.
Every Friday, Greta started skipping her school for the climate crisis. Eventually, in no long time, her campaign #fridayforchange, gone worldwide. Many schools organized rallies, campaigns for the cause on Fridays itself. In 2019, on World Earth Day fell on Friday, students across the globe marched against the climate crisis for a change in government policies towards the climate.
Later, Greta started representing herself in the international meetings and the summits.
Greta Thunberg Wins the Internet
This year Greta Thunberg also spoke in United Nations and her speech ‘how dare you’ derived alot of attention of many great leaders of the decade. For which she has been honored with the title ‘Person of the year‘ and suddenly after this worldwide leader started tweeting about her.
This raised a conspiracy about Greta and the leaders. As you can see in the video Brazil’s Prime Minister calls Greta ‘Brat’ on speaking about Amazon Rainforest Burn in his press conference. As a polite answer, Greta uploads her Twitter bio to ‘Pirralha’ which meant in Sweden, ‘Brat’.
The same goes for Trump while the world was congratulating Greta for the achievement. Trump retweets and writes, ”So ridiculous. Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill!”
As soon as Trolling started for the Trump deleted the tweet. But as a polite answer, Greta repeats his words on her Twitter bio.
This time she writes, ‘A teenager working on her anger management problem. Currently chilling and watching a good old fashioned movie with a friend.’
Trump mocked Greta for her diagnosis of Asperger disorder. Trump has a record of mocking and trolling his political and social enemies.
Greta has been trolled for the strategic and important cause whether you call her a ‘Brat’ or advise her to ‘work on her anger management and chilling with her friends’, the globe is not going to accept it at any cost.
I know, we all do think about climate and expect only the government can bring the change but as Greta says, only people can change it. This is the hour of action, if actions being ignored we all might suffer in the upcoming decade. As this is no more a secret that the world’s largest waterfall The Victoria Waterfall dries due to climate crisis. If these political leaders and we don’t stand up in action we may lead to mass extinction.
