What do we take from all of this? Greta Thernberg has become the inspiration and leader of the most important political message in the world. The climate protests rightly swept through the UK last Friday and they will continue to do so. Climate change affects our generation, and as the Davos Elite continue to take private jets to various conferences which achieve nothing but prestige, Climate Change increases in severity every single day. In the words of Greta, we need to panic.
Mainstream breaking news is tied to gaining attention and profit, shackled in political allies, limited filming and data collection feasibility, and treads on eggshells around religiously fuelled conflict. Therefore, it is vital in such a politically tumultuous time that we are proactive in educating ourselves on the world’s crises.
