Greta Thunberg: “We want politicians to listen to the scientists

Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg was in Brussels on Thursday (21 February) to take part in one of the climate school strikes that have taken place every week in Belgium since December.

Before joining the march, the Swedish activist was invited to make a speech in front of the Economic and Social Committee (EESC), an EU consultative body representing civil society organisations. And as usual, she didn’t mince her words.

“We know that most politicians don’t want to talk to us,” Thunberg said from the outset. “Good. We don’t want to talk to them either,” she told a roomful of EU policymakers, which also included Jean-Claude Juncker, the President of the European Commission.

“We want them to talk to the scientists instead. Listen to them. Because we are just repeating what they are saying and have been saying for decades,” she continued. “We want you to follow the Paris Agreement and the IPCC reports. We don’t have any other demands. Just unite behind the science – that is our demand.”
