“YP EXCLUSIVE: Greta Thunberg, who has inspired global school strikes, tells us about #ClimateStrike, and why adults need to act
By Veronica Lin
“If Swedish teen climate activist Greta Thunberg was given the chance to become the acting head of the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change for three days, what would she do?
“On day one, I would explain that a crisis is imminent and that we need to act accordingly.
“On day two, I’d declare an international state of emergency and establish a remaining global carbon budget based on climate justice, and calculating the numbers for rich countries would be my top priority.
“On the last day, I’d let everyone know that only democracy, together with science, and goodwill between nations, can save us, as they are the three cornerstones of society,” says the 16-year-old nominated on Wednesday for a Nobel Peace Prize for her work against climate change so far.”
In her first and exclusive interview with a Hong Kong-based publication, Greta chats with Young Post via Skype about how her Asperger’s syndrome drove her to take a stand, the steps she’s taken to make a change, and her message to adults opposing the student strikes.
