Greta Thunberg solar quotes

Greta Thunberg

“Right here, right now is where we draw the line. The world is waking up. And change is coming whether you like it or not.” This is a great example of why Greta Thunberg has risen in fame. Solar power is coming. The old ways are drawing to a close. Greta is drawing a line in the sand.

When you have so many people listening to what you’re saying and especially when you write speeches that will be heard by a lot of people, you need to have solid ground, you can’t make assumptions, you need to have facts on everything and sources on everything, So when I write a speech, when it’s almost finished, I send a copy of it to one scientist, or sometimes to five or six scientists, to just have a look to see if [the science is] how it’s supposed to be and cannot be misunderstood, Also, I ask them sometimes personal questions like what does this [climate fact] mean and why are they talking about that, have them explain things to me and that helps a lot.”

It makes me different, and being different is a gift, I would say. It also makes me see things from outside the box. I don’t easily fall for lies, I can see through things.” As an example of how Thunberg thinks outside the box, she crossed the Ocean from England to the USA in a boat equipped with solar panels and underwater turbines. It was intended to be a zero emissions cross Atlantic trip, showing her commitment to using developing technology to reduce dependence on fossil fuels.

We live in very dark times in many different ways and it feels like the situation in our society is getting worse at the same time as the planet is getting worse,” she said. “Everything is moving in the wrong direction and we cannot fix the climate without fixing all these other issues — they have to be combined. Environmental racism is a thing that’s happening everywhere.”

For way too long, the politicians and the people in power have gotten away with not doing anything to fight the climate crisis, but we will make sure that they will not get away with it any longer. We are striking because we have done our homework and they have not” In this case, I disagree with Ms. Thunberg. Those in power have done their homework, and their homework tells them that they must keep doing things the way they always have, in order to maximize profits. But the public is waking up. Solar panel technology is developing and growing in popularity. It is just a matter of time.

Many people say that Sweden is just a small country, and it doesn’t matter what we do, but I have learned you are never too small to make a difference.”

I sincerely hope COP25 will reach something concrete and increase awareness among people, and that world leaders and people in power grasp the urgency of the climate crisis, because right now it does not seem that they are”

Politicians one second say climate change is very important, it is the most important topic and we are going to do everything we can to stop it. And the next second, they want to expand airports, build new coal power plants and motorways. And then they fly off in a private jet to attend a meeting on the other side of the world.” Thunberg here demonstrates how it is important to hit the issue from all angles. On a large scale, we need to build solar farms and large utility scale operations using solar panels. But on an individual level, we need individuals to commit to reducing their wasteful use of natural resources.

My message is that we’ll be watching you. This is all wrong. I shouldn’t be up here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean. Yet you all come to us young people for hope. How dare you. You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words. Yet I am one of the lucky ones. People are suffering.” Outside the box thinking from the next generation is exactly what we need to transform this world from being dependent on energy buried under the earth, to energy coming from the sun. Included in “energy from the sun” is both wind, and energy collected from solar panels.
