20-inspirational-quotes-from-greta-thunberg-about-climate-change

Greta Thunberg is a Swedish environmental activist who, at just 16 years old, has managed to start a real international movement on climate change.

 

She became known in August 2018, when she started demonstrations in front of the Swedish Parliament. Every Friday, Greta was absent from school to protest in front of the Parliament building and called on the authorities to take action on climate change.

 

She always had a sign with the Swedish translation of the message "School Climate Strike" next to her.

 

Inspirational quotes of Greta Thunberg

 

In November 2018, 170,000 students from 24 countries joined the teenage protest, each in his own country. Since then, Greta has been giving a series of important speeches, with bold messages.

 

Greta says she has heard of terms such as climate change and global warming at the age of eight. He also heard about the devastating effects that climate change would have on the planet. He says they found it hard to believe because no one was talking about them. In fact, if it had really happened, it would have seemed normal for him to talk about it on TV, on social media, and in the newspapers.

 

Climate change is the biggest danger

 

1. “I shouldn't be up here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean. Yet, you all come to us young people for hope. How dare you?” - Greta Thunberg, UN Climate Change Summit New York, September 2019.

 

2. "We cannot solve a crisis without treating it as a crisis. And if solutions within the system are so impossible to find, then maybe we should change the system itself.” - Greta Thunberg.

 

3. “The climate crisis has already been solved. We already have all the facts and solutions. All we have to do is to wake up and change.” - Greta Thunberg, TEDx Stockholm, December 2018.

 

4. “I’m sure the moment we start behaving as if we were in an emergency, we can avoid climate and ecological catastrophe.” - Greta Thunberg, Houses of Parliament, UK, April 2019.

5. “For way too long, the politicians and the people in power have gotten away with not doing anything to fight the climate crisis, but we will make sure that they will not get away with it any longer.” - Greta Thunberg, Extinction Rebellion London, UK, April 2019.

 

6. “You must take action. You must do the impossible. Because giving up is never an option.”- - Greta Thunberg, Congress, September 2019.

 

7. “I have a dream that the people in power, as well as the media, start treating this crisis like the existential emergency it is.” - Greta Thunberg.

 

8. “Without that sense of urgency, how can we, the people, understand that we are facing a real crisis.” - Greta Thunberg, COP25 Madrid, December 2019.

 

A little girl with a big world inside

 

At the age of 11, Greta fell ill. He became depressed, stopped talking and eating. She was later diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, obsessive-compulsive disorder and selective mutism.

 

"I think in many ways, we autistic people are normal, and the rest of the people are pretty weird," Greta said in a Ted Talks speech. "Especially when it comes to the sustainability crisis, when everyone says that climate change is an existential threat and the worst problem of all, but they prefer to continue as before," she added.

 

Thunberg's mother was an opera singer, and her father was an actor. Greta was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, which is now considered an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). It is characterized by abnormalities in social interactions (as in classical autism), but with normal intelligence and language development. 

 

People with Asperger's syndrome tend to focus deeply on an idea or interest, and Thunberg's cause has become climate change. She first learned about this problem at the age of about eight, and in a few years she changed her habits, became vegan, and refused to travel by plane. (Both animals and aircraft emit a large amount of gas that contributes to global warming.)

 

9. "We children are doing this to wake the adults up. We children are doing this for you to put your differences aside and start acting as you would in a crisis. We children are doing this because we want our hopes and dreams back." - Greta Thunberg.

 

 

10. “Right here, right now is where we draw the line. The world is waking up. And change is coming whether you like it or not.” - Greta Thunberg.

 

11. “I often talk to people who say, ‘No, we have to be hopeful and to inspire each other, and we can’t tell [people] too many negative things’ . . . But, no — we have to tell it like it is.” - Greta Thunberg.

 

12. “It will take a far-reaching vision, it will take courage, it will take fierce, fierce determination to act now, to lay the foundations where we may not know all the details about how to shape the ceiling.” - Greta Thunberg.

 

13. “I don’t want you to be hopeful. I want you to panic.” - Greta Thunberg, World Economic Forum, Davos, January 2019.

 

A great impact in a big world

 

Seeking to have a greater impact, Thunberg tried to encourage lawmakers to tackle climate change. Almost three weeks before the Swedish elections in September 2018, she missed school to stand in front of the country's parliament with a sign that read Skolstrejk för Klimatet (Climate School Strike). 

 

Although alone on the first day of the strike, more and more people joined her every day afterwards, and her story attracted international attention. After the election, Thunberg returned to school, but continued to drop out of classes on Friday to strike, and these days were called Friday for the future. 

 

Her action has inspired hundreds of thousands of students around the world to attend their own Friday for the future. Strikes have taken place in countries such as Belgium, Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Finland, Denmark, France and the Netherlands.

 

Thunberg has received numerous invitations to talk about climate change. He has given speeches at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland and the European Parliament, as well as in the legislatures of Italy, France, the United Kingdom and the United States. 

 

In September 2019, her appearance at a UN climate event in New York - where she traveled on an emission-free yacht - drew special attention to her passionate comments: You stole my dreams and childhood with your empty words ... We are at the beginning of a mass extinction and everything you can talk about money and fairy tales about eternal economic growth. How dare you!

 

While Thunberg has been credited with changing people's views and behaviors on climate change - her influence has been known as the Greta effect - she has not been without detractors. Pres. Brazilian Jair Bolsonaro named her especially in 2019.

 

14. “People in power have got away with not doing anything.” - Greta Thunberg.

 

15. “We can change and people are ready for change.” - Greta Thunberg, COP25 Madrid, December 2019.

 

16. “There is hope – I’ve seen it – but it does not come from the governments or corporations, it comes from the people.” - Greta Thunberg, COP25 Madrid, December 2019.

 

17. “Humanity is now standing at a crossroads. We must now decide which path we want to take. How do we want the future living conditions for all living species to be like?” - Greta Thunberg, Extinction Rebellion London, UK, April 2019.

 

18. “I think it is insane that people are gathered here to talk about the climate, and they arrive here in private jets.” - Greta Thunberg, World Economic Forum, Davos, January 2019.

 

19. “Some decision-makers in particular, have known exactly what priceless values they have been sacrificing to continue making unimaginable amounts of money.”- Greta Thunberg.

 

20. “You must take action. You must do the impossible. Because giving up can never ever be an option.”- Greta Thunberg.
