She's 16 years old. She's from Sweden.

She's got 187,000 followers on Twitter.

She's leading the movement against climate change and her name is Greta Thunberg.


Her fight against climate change began last summer when she began protesting alone outside of the Swedish government until they joined the Paris agreement.

Since then she has inspired students just like herself to join the fight to save the planet. Student-based protests have broken out in Australia, Belgium, Germany, America, Japan and most notably the UK, all thanks to Greta.

More and more people are listening to her message. In fact, her Twitter following shows just how much influence she has.

At 187,000 followers, she has more followers than Green Party leaders Jonathan Bartley and Sian Berry combined. Not only that, she's rapidly approaching the same amount of followers as the Green Party itself.

Greta has Aspergers and selective mutism, but she has not allowed either of those things to stop her from speaking out.

In fact, it is her choice of words that resonate so powerfully with so many.

In a recent speech, when addressing the idea that adults want to give children hope, she stated:

"I don't want your hope. I don't want you to be hopeful. I want you to panic. And act as if our house is on fire. Because it is."

People are in awe of the young woman's passion and fortitude.










Greta has her next global mobilization planned for March 15th.

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.
