Appearing on MSNBC, Teen Climate Activist Greta Thunberg argued the Green New Deal “is very, very far from being enough.”
Thunberg also said “time Will tell” if Biden administration fulfills their promises on climate change.
“How can we expect people will want climate action?” Thunberg asked “How can we expect people to support any kind of action when the general public welcome awareness is so low when it comes to the climate. We have not been made aware of what is happening because the climate crisis has never once has been treated as a crisis. So how can we expect a to happen when we aren’t treating this crisis like a crisis.”
“The Green New Deal obviously it’s not” she continued “if you include crucial aspects like the aspect of equity and so on it is very, very far from being enough, from being in line with the Paris agreement and so on. That’s not my opinion if people may think that, but it at least gets the discussion going.”
