    Greta Thunberg resurfaced on the world stage Saturday to condemn world leaders over inaction regarding climate change during a desperate plea at the Glastonbury music festival in the UK. The globetrotting 19-year-old climate activist warned of an imminent “total natural catastrophe” and demanded more vigorous action to save the planet as part of her surprise appearance at the festival, according to the BBC. The earth’s ecosystem is “not just changing, it is destabilizing, it is breaking down,” Thunberg told the festival’s audience while an electronic background displayed a graphic of increasing global temperatures. “This is not the new normal, this...
  • Germany to restart coal plants

    Germany took emergency measures on June 19, 2022 to secure its energy supply in the face of recent drops in Russian gas deliveries, including a “bitter” use of the most polluting energy, coal. BERLIN—Germany will restart coal-fired power plants and offer incentives for companies to curb natural gas consumption, marking a new step in the economic war between Europe and Russia. Berlin unveiled the measures Sunday after Russia cut gas supplies to Europe last week as it punched back against European sanctions and military support for Ukraine. The steps, part of a broader strategy initiated after the invasion of Ukraine,...

    At Greece's largest coal mine, controlled explosions and the roar of giant excavators scooping up blasted rock have once again become routine. Coal production has been ramped up at the site near the northern Greek city of Kozani as the war in Ukraine forced many European nations to rethink their energy supplies. Coal, long treated as a legacy fuel in Europe, is now helping the continent safeguard its power supply and cope with the dramatic rise in natural gas prices caused by the war. Electricity generated by coal in the European Union jumped by 19% in the fourth quarter of...

Leading scientists and Canadian novelist Margaret Atwood are among those contributing the book, that Thunberg hopes will become "an essential tool" in the fight against climate change. The book's...

    Greta Thunberg criticized world leaders for not acting on so-called “climate change” in a tirade to fellow COP26 protesters on Monday. The Daily Mail reported: Government representatives have gathered in Glasgow to discuss green issues this week, with Prime Minister Boris Johnson using his opening address to compare the situation to James Bond trying to diffuse a ‘doomsday device’. US President Joe Biden, Germany’s Angela Merkel and President Emmanuel Macron of France are among those gathering at the event in an attempt to foster international cooperation on climate change. While speaking at a protest in Festival Park on the first...

In His Place Will Be GretaIn Glasgow, at the United Nations conference on climate change to be held from October 31 to November 12, Francis will not be there. He has removed the trip from his schedule. But if he is not going - Father Thomas Reese, former editor of the Jesuit weekly “America,” proposed to his confrere Pope - why not include Greta Thunberg in the Vatican delegation? Why not give none other than her the pope’s seat? Not outside the conference, to demonstrate with the people oppressed by the politicians’ vacuous...

    LONDON, Oct 11 (Reuters) - Britain's Prince Charles says he shares the concerns of Greta Thunberg and other environmental activists that world leaders "just talk" about climate change and were not doing enough to prevent its catastrophic impact. Speaking ahead of the U.N. Climate Change Conference COP26, the heir-to-the British throne, 72, who has spent most of his life speaking out on green issues, said he understood why campaigners took direct action when faced with the inactivity of politicians. "They just talk," Charles told BBC TV in an interview broadcast on Monday. "And the problem is to get action on...

    Teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg has accused New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern of “not doing anything” to stop global warming. The climate change activist sparked the global School Strike for Climate movement which saw over four million students walk out of classes in March 2019. Known for her hardline views on emission reduction and demands of world leaders, she claimed she “can’t think of a single politician” whose actions to combat climate change impressed her. […] “It’s funny that people believe Jacinda Ardern and people like that are climate leaders. That just tells you how little people know about...

    After decades of films, documentaries, and TV shows meant to raise awareness about climate change, celebrity-studded Global Citizen campaign aimed at fighting it, and Hollywood elites dedicating their award show acceptance speeches toward addressing the topic — it’s all just not enough for teen climate alarmist Greta Thunberg, who insists there is “a big lack” of awareness on the topic. Now she wants more climate content in film and television. In the past year, Thunberg herself was even the subject of the feature documentary, I Am Greta, which premiered at the 2020 Venice Film Festival. But on Tuesday, while speaking...

    Sunday on MSNBC’s “The Mehdi Hasan Show,” Swedish teenage climate change activist Greta Thunberg doubled down on her belief that President Joe Biden and his administration are not doing enough when it comes to solving the so-called climate crisis. In March, Thunberg pled with the Biden administration to “treat the climate crisis like a crisis,” which she noted is not being done. The activist argued that the “science” is not on their side.

    She's known worldwide for her climate-change activism, but now Sweden's Greta Thunberg is targeting the way your food is produced. "Our relationship with nature is broken.

"Millions have died from COVID-19, Zika, Ebola, West Nile Fever, SARS, MERS. Up to 75% of all new diseases come from other animals. Because of the way we farm and treat nature, cutting down forests and destroying habitats, we are creating the perfect conditions for diseases to spill over from one animal to another...

    Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg has set her sights on changing how the world produces and consumes food in order to counteract a trio of threats: carbon emissions, disease outbreaks and animal suffering. In a video posted on Twitter on Saturday, Thunberg said the environmental impact of farming as well as disease outbreaks such as COVID-19, which is believed to have originated from animals, would be reduced by changing how food was produced. "Our relationship with nature is broken. But relationships can change," Thunberg said in the video marking the International Day of Biological Diversity.

Katie Porter (D-CA), the mother of three children, two teenage sons and a nine-year-old daughter, asked Thunberg: “I just want to ask you one question: I have a nine-year-old daughter, I have three kids, and I told my nine-year-old daughter that I was going to be speaking with you, and I said, ‘What do you think about the climate change?’ And she said, ‘The Earth...
