“I’m too young to do this. We children shouldn’t have to do this.”– Greta Thunberg
There is not a single day that goes by without some news about our fragile environment. Depletion of forests, melting ice caps, rising temperatures, changing weather patterns, freak storms, the list is endless. With Earth’s future looking bleak, Greta Thunberg a fifteen-year- old activist from Sweden has put her leg forward fighting against global climate crisis. Beginning to fight in the noblest way possible, her actions ended up sparking a global movement. It inspired millions of students to go on strike for our planet.
No One Is Too Small to Make a Difference is a collection of Greta’s speeches. The straight forward talks which started on a Friday have made history across Europe earning her a Nobel Peace Prize Nomination. Her campaign Skolstrejk för klimatet has gained momentum and has turned into mass street protests by students. Amidst criticisms and being accused of false alarms about a climate catastrophe, she continues to speak for an unwritten future which could be a disastrous one if we continue being careless towards the nature.
Greta urges us to panic than to feel hopeful. The book is a cry for why we must all wake up and fight to protect the living planet, no matter how powerless we feel.
