Greta thunberg I turned 18 today and, with an already consolidated environmentalist militancy, I asked that people change their “way of behaving”, affirmed that he does not see “any use” in speculating about the future and denounced having been the object of threats along with his family.
Asked about the contradictions that some celebrities who embrace the environmental cause, but who later contribute to increasing carbon emissions by traveling by plane, the young Swede answered that she did not care.
I’m not telling anyone else what to do, but there is a risk that a person will be criticized if he preaches one thing and then practices another “, he stated.
Later, during an interview with the magazine Sunday times, he warned that the only risk these people run is “not be taken seriously in their battles if their behaviors are not consistent.”
Avoiding long flights is one of the most effective ways people can reduce their carbon emissions, but the biggest impact is not having children, according to studies.
However, the activist maintained: “I don’t think it is selfish to have children. It is not the people that are the problem, it is our behavior. “
As a balance of the last three years of protests since that first day when she missed school and was left alone, sitting on the ground, with a poster calling for stronger climate policies and even the well-known “Fridays for the Future”, Thunberg expressed that he feels guilty for the stress on his family, for the attacks he received, including the death threats.
“I feel guilty especially because the death threats were not only against me but against my entire family. I don’t care what people say about me, but when this has an impact on the people around you, it becomes something more, “he said, quoted by the ANSA news agency.
On the comment of the President of the United States, Donald trumpWhat a tweet to “relax”, Thunberg lashed out: “I don’t sit around and speculate on what the future might turn out, I don’t see any use in doing that.”
“While he’s trying his best now, I can’t afford to get depressed or anxious,” she added.
