Yengal Thalaivi – Greta Thunberg

I am a Sustainable Living enthusiast, but I have taken very little action to become a Sustainable Living practitioner. There is a big difference between aspiring to do something and actually taking concrete steps towards doing that thing. Action is more important than words or intentions.

This was reiterated to me by my new Guru – Sweedish Teenager named Greta Thunberg. (Read the linked Wikipedia introduction about her to know about what she has been doing.)

It’s heart-warming to see someone so young being so passionate about climate change. So passionate that she started protesting in front of the Sweedish Parliament and inspired many students from many countries to do the same.

She has addressed the UN Assembly, given a TED talk, and has been mocked by world leaders including Putin, Donald Trump, Australian PM Scott Morrison, etc. It’s these criticisms that validate her agenda more than anything else.

While I agree that reducing our carbon emissions, adopting renewable energy, etc. are all important steps to combat climate change, I feel we are still not targeting the root cause that led to this situation in the first place.

Which is?

Insatiable Human Greed. (Including mine, I should accept.)

The more I think about it, the more helpless I feel. That’s why I feel Greta Thunberg is a great inspiration for all of us.

Watch the below video where she gives a no-nonsense speech about our short-sighted attitude,

  1. I agree we shd all attempt to reduce the carbon emission in our own interest. But these Western nations who were the main culprits and who are fully developed and hv a high standard of living cannot preach moderation to poor under devlpd countries to eschew ossil fuel coal oil etc. USA is the worst culprit and is not part of the deliberations.

    Good for a girl to try to create awareness but to force her views on poor nations is un acceptable. The deadline for reduction of carbon emission shd be different for different countries.

    1. She is targeting mostly western nations for reducing their carbon footprint. I heard her say this at least in two videos.

      But just because the west has taken the wrong path to technology supremacy I don’t think we also need to do the same. We can focus on powering our development using clean energy, especially with the kind of advancements that renewable energy has seen in recent years.

  2. No doubt she’s an inspiration to all and being conscious and passionate about the climate change at this age will sure make a difference… if we all step forward as well.

  3. Nice Video DI! You should start your own youtube channel and start posting videos about your research and findings on sustainable living – maybe even like a show. Even I want to go green and want to achieve zero waste living but not sure where to start. I started by stopping plastic usage. Avoid fossil fuel usage is little tough unless someone invents a better fuel and that fuel is easily accessible by public.
