Peace and Climate Change
How can Climate Change Affect Peace?
           Greta Thunberg
Greta Thunberg realized at a young age the lapse in what several climate experts were saying and in the actions that were being taken in society. The difference was so drastic, in her opinion, that she decided to take matters into her own hands. Greta is a 16-year-old Stockholm native who lives at home with her parents and sister Beata. She's a 10th grader in Stockholm who enjoys spending her spare time riding Icelandic horses, spending time with her families two dogs, Moses and Roxy. She loves animals and has a passion for books and science. At a young age, she became interested in the environment and convinced her family to adopt a sustainable lifestyle.
Sometimes the world makes so little sense that the only thing to do is engage in civil disobedience - even in a country as attached to its rules and regulations as Sweden is. Sixteen-year-old Greta Thunberg was protesting for more than a month before the country's parliamentary election last September 9th, she went on strike and sat on the steps of the parliament building, in Stockholm, every day during school hours for three weeks. Since the election, she has returned to school for four days a week; she now spends her Fridays on the steps of parliament. She is demanding that the government undertake a radical response to climate change. A number of members of parliament came out to the steps to express support for her position, although every one of them has said that she should really be at school. Her parents think so, too.  Her mother said that she should really go to school, though she is right to protest.
