In an op-ed published by the Guardian on January 10, teenage climate kid Greta Thunberg, allegedly speaking along with 20 others, demanded the world abandon all investments in fossil fuel exploration and extraction, “right now.”
“We demand that at this year’s forum, participants from all companies, banks, institutions, and governments immediately halt all investments in fossil fuel exploration and extraction, immediately end all fossil fuel subsidies and immediately and completely divest from fossil fuels,” she wrote, referring to an economic forum to be held in Davos.“We don’t want these things done by 2050, 2030 or even 2021, we want this done now – as in right now,” she added.

2) Like California, Australia is prone to bushfires every year during the dry season.

“Well said @JaniceDean. How out of touch are these ppl?? Oh the sacrifice! Just ONE tuxedo! Spare us,” she wrote, to which journalist Emily Zanotti replied: “I’m going to rewear my Stella McCartney jeans (that I got secondhand for $35) today, just to feel like a climate change hero.”
