Climate truant Greta Thunberg speaks to world leaders: “I want you to panic”

The famous Swedish climate trustee Greta Thunberg (16) addressed the world leaders at the World Economic Forum in Davos. “I do not want you to despair, I want you to panic,” she argued.

“I want you to feel the fear I feel every day, and take action, as if something is on fire somewhere, because that is the case,” said Thunberg. “We still have a small chance to stop greenhouse gases and save a large part of the population on our planet a whole lot of suffering. “

Greta Thunberg has been skipping for months every Friday at the parliament building in Stockholm to demand a better climate policy. She inspired thousands of pupils from all over the world to do the same, as did the Belgian girls Kyra Gantois and Anuna De Wever, who are already getting a crowd of students for a climate march in Brussels for several Thursdays in a row.

In order to make her move to Davos as ecological as possible and to avoid criticism, the Swedish opted to go by train, a journey of 65 hours back and forth.
