Greta Thunberg Career

Greta Thunberg was 8 years old when she first heard about climate change. In August of 2018, the 9th-grade student said she would not go to school until the Swedish general election which was held, slated for Sept. 9. She said she made up her mind to do something following the unparalleled heatwave and summer fires her country experienced.

On September 8, 2018 Greta Thunberg tweeted a photo and captioned “Skolstrejken fortsätter! After 3 weeks of #schoolstrike for the #climate I will continue. #skolstrejk #climatestrike #klimatstrejk #FridaysForFuture #RiseforClimate #ClimateMarch” and the photo reads.

“I will go on with the school strike. Every Friday as from now I will sit outside the Swedish parliament until Sweden is in line with the Paris agreement. I urge all of you to do the same – sit outside your parliament or local government wherever you are – until your country is on a safe pathway to a below 2-degree warming target. Time is much shorter than we think. Failure means disaster. The changes required are enormous and we must all contribute to every part of our daily life. Especially us in the rich countries where no nation is doing nearly enough. The grown-ups have failed us. And since most of them, including the press and the politicians, keep ignoring the situation we must take action into our own hands. Starting today. Everyone is welcome. Everyone one is needed. Please join in. Greta Thunberg #climatestrike #schoolstrike #fridaysforfuture #FFF”

Later, she addressed the COP24 United Nations climate change summit on Dec 4, 2018, and shared a Twitter post and wrote “So we have not come here to beg the world leaders to care for our future. They have ignored us in the past and they will ignore us again.
We have come here to let them know that change is coming whether they like it or not.”

In an Interview, with New Yorker, she was only in third grade when she became interested in climate change and later she added “They were always talking about how we should turn off lights, save water, not throw out food,” she explained to the publication. “I asked why and they explained about climate change. And I thought this was very strange. If humans could change the climate, everyone would be talking about it and people wouldn’t be talking about anything else. But this wasn’t happening.”
