Sailing across the Atlantic will be a huge challenge. It would be so easy to just get on a plane and justify it as a chance to spread the message about the climate crisis. I admire @gretathunberg‘s commitment.
I’ve seen some posts recently damming the #FridaysforFuture
movement. Saying that the kids are hypocritical - striking while simultaneously being consumers of fast food, disposables and power-hungry tech. But who taught them to live like this? Who has failed to act before now? The effects of carbon emissions on our planet isn’t new, but it’s now urgent. It asks big changes of us all, but I don’t think there will be many willing to sail across the Atlantic for it.
Wishing Greta a safe journey ⛵️ #plasticnews
