South Holland Grower Stafford Proctor: "We need to change the way we live and work"
Greta Thunberg is a young Swedish climate change activist and is providing iconic leadership in the climate change debate for both young and old. She has recently been speaking at the 2019 United Nations Climate Action Summit in New York. I was impressed with Greta’s courage and clear vision when she spoke to the assembled world leaders.
She accused the leaders of ignoring the science behind climate change. “We are in the beginning of a mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth.”
We should be hugely disappointed in our world leaders lack of ambition and urgency in tackling the release of carbon into the atmosphere.
