If you thought Greta Thunberg was slowing down any time soon, then you are mistaken – her work has just begun.
In a recent interview with Stephen Colbert (the late show), Greta Thunberg, a 17-year-old climate activist, spoke on a variety of matters ranging from her recent letter to the leaders of the world to that famous photo of her staring at Donald Trump at a United Nation’s Climate Summit last summer.
For Thunberg, a few reactions are quite surprising such as how far people can go in order to neglect climate crisis. The measures range from organized and well-planned hate campaigns as well as threats. And this is because they are themselves afraid of the kids who are actually coming out with their stance. – said Thunberg, on receiving a negative response from world leaders.
This really turned into a no holds barred interview as she didn’t hesitate to expose how the world leaders have continued to silence her or mock her on social media.

As per Thunberg, it often seems quite funny that these people literally have nowhere to go whereas it also means that they actually want to make an impact, after all, there must be some reason why they want to silence real people.
This is such a positive outlook, considering how cruel the leaders (TRUMP) has been to her. She doesn’t allow any of the negativity to demotivate her attempts to speak against climate change. This is a remarkable trade, and Trump should learn it from her.
The TV anchor also asked Thunberg whether or not her travelling experience has impacted her in any way to which she responded positively.
While discussing such life-changing experiences, Colbert asked her about the viral photo of her glaring bluntly at Trump. He brought it up rather cheekily. He said that he agrees with Greata’s stare yet he is curious what was she actually thinking at that moment.
And her response? Well, it was just perfect!
“To be honest, I don’t think you need an explanation.”
Anyway, you should grab a copy of Our House Is on Fire: Scenes of a Family and Planet in Crisis or No One Is Too Small to Make a Difference to get to the bottom of the problem that we’re dealing with. Greta has done a commendable job so far in raising her voice against such ignorance and ruthlessness but these books really show you the truth.
