European Union is ‘being embarrassed by Greta Thunberg’s silly games’
Swedish climate campaigner Greta Thunberg continues to play “a silly game of teenage virtue-signalling” which has “contributed nothing sensible to the global warming debate,” says Sky News host Chris Kenny.
“My argument has always been that it is ridiculous for adults who claim that they are taking climate change seriously, to make a hero of a teenager making hysterical claims,” he said.
Ms Thunberg recently attended a meeting with the European Commission as it moves to adopt a continent-wide Climate Law. The law would commit the EU to reducing its greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050. However, the environmental activist denounced the targets and accused the European union of simply “pretending” to tackle climate change.
“Thunberg reckons the EU is ducking the challenge, not doing enough over the next decade,” Mr Kenny said. “I suppose she has to say that because she reckons we’re all doomed in a decade”.
