Berlin – Exactly three years after her first climate strike in front of the parliament in Stockholm, the Swedish activist Greta Thunberg drew a sobering balance sheet of the international climate protection efforts to date. “We are still ignoring the climate crisis,” Thunberg told the German press agency on Friday.
It is true that there is overall more global attention for the topic than three years ago. But the political decision-makers are still not treating climate change as a crisis and are not doing enough to combat global warming, said the now 18-year-old activist. This applies equally to all countries, including Germany and her home country Sweden. “Politicians say that they don’t have the backing for what would be needed to save the climate. But that’s normal: How should they be supported when people don’t know what is happening? “
Thunberg met the German Fridays For Future activist Luisa Neubauer in front of the Stockholm Parliament on Friday morning. Together with other activists, the group set an example for more global climate protection and for a political change of direction. Due to very strict corona requirements, according to Fridays for Future, only 30 people were able to demonstrate in front of parliament. The organization was founded in 2018 after the first protests by the Swede Thunberg and has now established itself worldwide. (dpa)
