Berlin In an interview, climate activist Greta Thunberg criticized the climate policy of new US President Joe Biden. Science suggests that its current strategies are not sufficient to curb global warming over the long term. He called on politicians to consider climate change as a real crisis, not just another item on the political agenda.
In an interview with the American news channel Msnbc Thunberg said she did not want to evaluate Joe Biden’s climate policy. Instead, politicians should focus on scientific facts. And then you see that US climate policy “does not conform to science”. “And it’s not me who says that, it’s looking at the facts,” the climate activist said.
Considers climate change a necessary crisis
US President Joe Biden campaigned for the US to resume the Paris Agreement soon after he took office. It was abandoned by the country under the leadership of Donald Trump. But that is not enough for Greta Thunberg. She stressed that she did not want to be in the shoes of politicians in the current difficult times, but at the same time urged Biden to treat the climate crisis to what it is: a necessary crisis. “The most important step is to consider climate change as a crisis,” Thunberg said.
At the same time, Thunberg announced that he did not want to tell the US president what to do – because he was not democratic. “Democracy is the most valuable thing we have,” Sved said. Public awareness of the dangers of climate change should still increase.
