“We already have all the facts and solutions.
All we have to do is wake up and change.”
Sure, this book is tiny – but that’s the point.
I’m not the perfect ‘eco warrior’ (more of an eco-worrier), but I admire what Greta Thunberg is doing right now.
Putting aside her age, she has achieved so much – speaking in front of audiences of thousands, researching the climate crisis, and inspiring a generation to strike for change.
I get why people don’t like her, but she isn’t here to be liked, she’s here to help make change happen.
If you’re looking for hints and tips on how to be more environmentally-conscious and make more ‘eco-friendly’ changes in your life, this isn’t the book for you.
But if you’re looking for inspiration to spark that fire inside, that angry, blazing fire that’s infuriated about the state of the world, and what we’re doing to it as a species, then I’d recommend this book.
This book is to inspire and motivate you, rather than to offer tangible guidance.
Personally, I love Greta’s way of speaking – she’s forthright, to the point, and doesn’t tamp down her anger at her future being destroyed.
Greta is just one person, and to have made such an impact on the world, for one person, especially at such a young age, is impressive.
So if you’re looking for some quick inspiration to get you motivated in your fight against climate change, I’d recommend this book – you can finish it off in 20 minutes, and flick back to it for environmental inspiration whenever yours is waning.
