Choice: Thunberg feels it has been declared stupid

Thunberg in Sweden’s elections

‘As a voter, I feel stupid’

Although Sweden is the home of world-renowned climate activist Greta Thunberg, climate protection and the environment play a secondary role ahead of the Swedish parliamentary elections on Sunday.

That’s why the Friday for the Future movement pointed to the importance of fighting the climate crisis at protests in several Swedish cities on Friday. Thunberg told TT news agency at a protest rally in the capital, Stockholm, that the topic had been completely ignored in principle during the election campaign. The police there initially spoke of about 2,000 participants.

When she was young, she felt abandoned because no one cared about her future, Thunberg told TT. “But as a voter, and this year I am, I also feel very stupid.” Of course, among the alternatives available, there are some that are less terrible than others. However, neither side’s policies are consistent with what is needed to limit global warming to 1.5°C.
