Greta Thunberg’s No One is Too Small to Make a Difference
Greta Thunberg’s No One is Too Small to Make a Difference book is hard-hitting, plain English, concise, germane, current, easy to read, and no-nonsense. It is a short book of 68 pages, so everyone should have time to read it in its entirety. This book is a collection of her speeches, which are short and easy to understand. She clearly sees the climate crisis problem and says we already know how to solve it. We do. So what is taking so long?
Yes, we already know how to solve the climate crisis.
The basic problem is the same everywhere. And the basic problem is that basically nothing is being done to halt — or even slow–climate and ecological breakdown, despite all the beautiful words and promises. (Page 61)
Greta Thunberg and millions of students know what is wrong. Scientists know what is wrong. And they don’t want words, they want action. She says the problem is we need to stop greenhouse emissions. Stop taking oil out of the ground. Little effort is going to stop greenhouse emissions. Corporations are making so much money, why would they stop?
To Greta, this is a black and white issue. She can clearly see the problem and solution. We need no more work on the situation, just action. She says she can see it because of her Asberger’s syndrome. A syndrome may help her be alarmed and a good speaker, but are we listening?
In the middle of one speech, she said:
Did you hear what I just said? Is my English okay? Is the microphone on? Because I’m beginning to wonder. (Page 61)
Thunberg says we need to act like the house is on fire, because it is. The Earth is heating up and we only have about eleven years left before it is too late. She says it well in each speech which is different from the last. The book is an important read.
