It’s Greta’s World
David Wallace-Wells, writing in New York Magazine, has an incredible story on Greta Thunberg.
She was the Joan of Arc of climate change, commanding a global army of teenage activists numbering in the millions and waging a rhetorical war against her elders through the unapologetic use of generational shame. The comparison might seem hyperbolic and may come to look even more strained than that, depending on what the future brings for Greta and for climate action. But for the moment, there is simply no other appropriate analogy from political history to draw on in describing just how much she has achieved at such a young age and in so little time.
What a rise for this young activist. She’s the future.
