If you have been seeing and hearing about Greta Thunderg lately, you may be wondering who the hell is she. This 16-year old is an environmental activist who became famous because of her strong speech and her very striking presence. Greta Thunberg has very quotable environmental speeches and it has turned into memes which you will see below. Her young age makes her the perfect person to talk about climate change because her generation would be the ones living through the worsening problems brought about by climate change that will continue up to the future.
One quotable line from Greta is “You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words,” which she said at the United Nations General Assembly. She speaks with so much conviction and anger for the leaders gathered in the assembly.
Greta has been an advocate of taking care of the environment since she learned about climate change when she was just eight.
As she speaks on behalf of her generation “You are failing us. But the young people are starting to understand your betrayal. The eyes of all future generations are upon you. And if you choose to fail us, I say: We will never forgive you.”
