Greta Thunberg Pivots To Death Metal

Greta Thunberg Pivots To Death Metal

Teenage activist Greta Thunberg has hit back at critics including US President Donald Trump, saying their mockery shows her message has become "too loud to handle". "Being different is not an illness and the current, best available science is not opinions - it's facts", she said this week. "And, if you choose to fail us, I say: "We will never forgive you".

Her comments came as students in Italy symbolically torched a replica of planet Earth, one of many protests as part of the climate strikes sparked by the Swedish teen.

Greta Thunberg speaks during the UN Climate Action Summit.

"The week of Global Climate Strikes is on par with the 2003 anti-Iraq war protest as one of the largest coordinated global protests in history", 350 said.

Here in Kenora, young people at the rally also want to raise their voices, like Thunberg.

Fears about the impact of global warming on the younger generation were expressed by schoolchildren in Dharmsala, India.

Wellington's event will start in Civic Square at 11am.

In Berlin, activists from the Fridays for Future group braved persistent rain to denounce a package of measures that the German government recently agreed on to cut the country's greenhouse gas emissions.

More than 46,000 people signalled on Facebook they plan to attend the event in Vancouver, almost 11,000 for Edmonton, and 5,000 in Halifax.

Referring to a tweet by comedian John Bishop, in which he described Thunberg as an "inspirational person", Emily Clarkson wrote: "Wouldn't it be nice if all middle aged blokes could talk to and about Greta, the ballsy af teenager out there changing the world, like this".

Bardem was promoting a documentary he worked on with Greenpeace.

Young activists and their supporters rally for action on climate change in Montreal.

"I will try and communicate the urgency and say that they are the ones in charge now".

Asked of her message to world leaders and what she would say to President Donald Trump days after she appeared angry at him for upstaging her in front of the United Nations, she appeared to stutter over when attempting to answer the first question, before ignoring the second.

Those countries will be among the most impacted by climate change, with Bangladesh particularly prone to its impacts as the majority of the country is extremely low-lying and vulnerable to sea level rise and storms.

Thunberg said she told Trudeau the same thing she tells all world leaders.

Trudeau, who is in the middle of an election campaign, announced a plan to plant two billion trees over the next decade.

Over the past year, Greta Thunberg has arguably done more to galvanise global action on climate than any other single individual.

"When I saw her speech, I was very impressed by her passion and outrage", thrash-metal drummer John Meredith, who plays in the band Suaka, tells Rolling Stone.

"He (Trudeau) is of course obviously not doing enough, but this is just a huge problem, this is a system that is wrong", she said. "My message to all the politicians is the same, to just listen to the science, act on the science".
