Fellow climate activists sick of Greta Thunberg as they seek to remove her from the helm

As the mainstream media’s planned focus to push the climate change narrative proceeds full steam ahead, activists within the movement are voicing growing rumblings of discontent as the movement’s collective foot taps the brakes.

A recent report from Austria indicates that many climate change activists are done with Swedish ‘poster teen’ Greta Thunberg. Reportedly ‘sick of her’, they are now looking toward her removal as the face of the environmental movement.

News outlet Exxpress reported that many climate activists now want to get rid of the 19-year-old in a “de-Gretaization”, citing that Thunberg’s notoriety is misappropriated and that she gained fame as the face of the movement for things others created or did before her.

Italian climate activist Giorgio Brizio told the news outlet that Thunberg wasn’t the first to go on strike for climate and that,

“She didn’t found Fridays for Future either.”

Swiss resident Jann Kessler said,

“Since the beginning, we have said that we want to be hierarchy-free – and yet many saw Greta as their leader.”

Other climate campaigners from Germany also expressed their discontent with the way the movement is structured, with some saying that its grassroots democracy doesn’t work as they call for a departure from old ‘patterns of dominance.’

Thunberg rose to notoriety in 2018 while protesting outside of the Swedish parliament demanding action from world leaders to meet agreed carbon emissions targets and is most recognised globally for saying, “You all come to us young people for hope. How dare you! You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words,” in a tantrum-like address to the United Nations in 2019.

Among her critics, the National Review wrote an article Don’t Listen to Greta Thunberg in September 2019 following her U.N. address.

The article explored the use of Thunberg’s youth, saying kids are ‘powerful pawns’ that have a ‘seductive political appeal’ that is not widely criticised in terms of the reality of our climate position of the time, nor in terms of adults looking to children for guidance on political issues.

“Of course, the adults they listen to don’t tell them [the kids] any of this. Instead, they feed the kids a diet of apocalyptic warnings that children repeat back as if they were urgent insights,” the National Review added.

While it may be perceived by some critics that Thunberg was propelled into fame as the ‘face’ of climate activism by adults motivated by an agenda, it would appear that her fellow campaigners are in agreeance that the movement has been hijacked, as they look toward a return to their ‘grass roots’ without Thunberg at the helm.
