At a party at Glastonbury Festival in England that was announced only a short time later, Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg strongly called for more climate commitment. “We are approaching the abyss,” the 19-year-old said yesterday afternoon on the main podium, where former Beatle Paul McCartney performed.
She urgently advises all those whose senses are not yet affected by green washing to impose themselves. “Don’t let us get an inch from the abyss,” she said, according to the BBC. Verse. eh.” According to Telegraph journalist Neil McCormick, who was present, the public showed limited interest in what Thunberg had to say.
Very few actions have been taken so far
The Swedish initiator of the “Fridays for Future” movement regularly accuses politicians and businessmen of trying to cover up their lack or slowness in their climate action with blithe declarations of intent.
