Yeah… Because hating on a 16-year-old is going to solve the problems we’re facing.
The hate Greta Thunberg (@gretathunberg) gets from some grown ups is despicable. I hope she knows there is a horde of us who hold her in high regard. She has unlocked hate in some, but for many others she has given voice to our own concerns and spurred us on to action. The world needed her and thankfully we got her.
Someone said to me we shouldn’t take environmental advice from teenagers. I wondered, “Why not?” After all, given the environmental record of my generation so far, it makes more sense not to listen to 40- and 50-year-olds. Nor to 60-year-olds and older.
