'Taking this book to the UK for a friend. At the moment, Greta is in the United States to spread the message that we'd better get our act together for this planet. She has come under attack from several North Americans, including the preposterous leader of The People's Party of Canada, Maxime Bernier. From The Guardian newspaper: "(Thunberg’s)....simple emotion and 'black-and-white' rationalism suggest authenticity and trust to her audience, many of whom are wary of adult experts suspected of harbouring hidden agendas...Thunberg speaks to a people acutely aware of living in a time of transition, on a knife-edge between multiple possible futures. Her argument is not driven by a belief that we are all doomed, but is cut through with tentative hope. And as a small, isolated figure, with her pigtails and open face, poised bravely behind an enormous lectern, facing down a roomful of powerful, suited adults, she embodies what it’s like to be an individual who yearns for change, against a juggernaut of commercial and political interests defending the status quo." Carry on, Greta!

It's a simple message that needs repeating. Of course, reading all her speeches in one go does get a bit repetitive - but that's OK. And as part of what I do for a living is translating and correcting speeches, I can't switch that off and I notice every mistake.
But nonetheless a powerful message - thanks for sharing!

This book - No One Is Too Small To Make A Difference - is a collection of Greta Thunberg speeches at various locations. They are all powerful and convincing. These words have more power we imagine, a whole new generation is chanting them in protest against us adults. And right they are. It is upon us to act.
