Greta Thunberg is looking dead inside these days, and that appears to be a direct consequence of the media giving her attention and her realizing that she can’t hide the devastating consequences of her vegan diet from all the eyes that are fixed on her.
She is losing her hair and people are noticing.
She is almost 17 yet absurdly tiny compared to any other teenager or young adult protesting the diversity of the weather.
She is alleged to be a woman yet she has no breasts and has the body frame of an emaciated prepubescent boy.
Considering all of these eyebrow-raising things surrounding her and more, it is understandable that she’d try to get away from the spotlight.
After all, she’s making veganism look bad — or is it veganism that it is making her look bad?
Teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg announced to 420 reporters that she is tired of the relentless media attention she is getting.
The 16-year-old activist arrived in Madrid last Friday, following a three-week sailing trip across the Atlantic, because she has sworn off flying due to the threat it poses for the environment.
Greta was joined by other activists at an event at La Casa Encendida where the COP25 United Nations climate change conference is being held.
Speaking alongside prominent German activist Luisa Neubauer at a UN climate meeting in Madrid today, Thunberg said their stories ‘have been told over and over again.’
‘There is no need to listen to us anymore,’ she said.
‘It is people especially from the global south, especially from indigenous communities, who need to tell their stories,’ she said before handing the mic to young activists from the United States, the Philippines, Russia, Uganda, Chile and the Marshall Islands.
Right, Greta. We have to form some kind of climate change support group and sit in a circle with these indigenous communities so they can tell their climate change story.
After we do that, we white people have to obey the brown “indigenous” communities even in Europe, where we are the indigenous ones.
The 420 journalists there mainly directed their questions to Ms Thunberg, prompting her to say: ‘They shouldn’t listen to me before anyone else. I am a small part of a very big movement.’
She told Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet: ‘It’s absurd. I don’t like to be the centre of attention all the time, but it’s a positive thing.
‘As long as the press writes about me, they are also writing about the climate crisis.’
Maybe what she doesn’t like is the fact that people are starting to notice that she’s turning into some kind of teenage mutant climate turtle.
It’s hard to hide that neck and overall head shape, so staying away from the spotlight is her only hope.
Ms Thunberg was then forced to leave early for security reasons and fellow activists from her Fridays for Future movement said she was upset that she was being followed so much.
Yesterday she turned up to a meeting at Madrid’s Complutense University wearing a hooded sweatshirt that covered her face as she prepared the agenda for this week.
She chose the university as the meeting place because hundreds of other environmental groups meet there and it is informally referred to as the HQ of the ‘counter-summit’.
She reportedly said she wanted a secondary role in two upcoming meetings this week – today at the COP25 summit and on Wednesday when she is set to meet representatives of the climate movement from Chile and Spain with Harrison Ford.
The Spanish spokesman for Fridays for Future told El Pais: ‘She gets really stressed out with all the media pressure.
‘She feels more comfortable in safe spaces.’
Ms Thunberg is reportedly unlikely to stay until the last day of the summit on Friday and is anxious to get back to Stockholm to be with her mother.
She doesn’t look anxious or stressed.
She looks sad, depressed, and full of loathing.
Well, I guess you get what you deserve.
She is a very angry, mean person.
