She’s back – Greta Thunberg!

For anyone who’s interested in what she has to say there’s a programme on BBC1 21:00 Monday 12 April 2021. This is also on iPlayer shortly after the broadcast, see link.

Greta Thunberg: A Year to Change the World

"Climate activist Greta Thunberg takes a year off school to explore the science of global warming and challenge world leaders, calling for action on climate change."

They made her a statue didn't they? Interesting girl, with a huge passion for the world, but don't know that I will be watching it.

I don't know that I will be watching the programme either, I don't particularly like watching or listening to her. I just saw it advertised so thought it worth posting for those who may be interested.

Live and learn though, I didn't know about the statue which apparently didn't go down too well with students at Winchester university:

Am sure that the students will be delighted to have some of their tuition fees spent on the statue.

Re: She’s back – Greta Thunberg!

Well the University did say that no funds were diverted from student or staffing to finance this, but I do think it was a bit awkward timing, when there are other things the University could have funded.

Re: She’s back – Greta Thunberg!

I wonder if they'll tear that one down or smear it with graffiti?

The Boomers are more inclined to do that. They HATE being told what they don't want to hear.

Oh dear, sorry about that, I didn't mean to be a 'norty boi' and it wasn't intentional.

It's not as if I much like her, as mentioned, but posted the programme information
for those who just might.
