Forget the Avengers , forget the Justice League, we don’t need a billionaire or a Norse god to save us! All we need is an ambitious 16 year old girl and some caring school children.
Greta Thunberg is a 16 year old climate activist from Sweden. She is the reason young people are striking all over the globe and an important piece of the puzzle to solving climate change. She has inspired many students to leave school, grab their banners and make a lot of noise. She is a fantastic inspiration and a true superhero.
As a young person I look up to her, I want to tell politicians that our very existence is under threat, and I want to make a difference. Politicians need to face the facts and realise they are dealing with an extinction level event, they need to act fast. Young people are the foundations of the future and if the human race wants a chance of survival they need to listen to us. We are crying for mercy yet those who are supposedly responsible adults just don’t listen to us.
Greta Thunberg has been nominated for a Nobel peace prize and rightly so, her strikes have been successful and will continue happening until there is action.
The next global strike is on the 24th of May, let’s make it a big one.
