Greta Thunberg urges elites to fly less and ditch meat and dairy
Vegan climate activist Greta Thunberg has given a speech calling on political leaders, entrepreneurs and celebrities to reduce flying and ditch meat and dairy.
In a talk at Brilliant Minds in Stockholm, the teenager urged immediate action.
“If you regularly fly around the world, eat meat and dairy, and are living a high carbon lifestyle that means you have used up countless of people’s remaining carbon budgets.
“Carbon budgets that they will need in their everyday life for generations to come.
“Those whose carbon budgets you are stealing are the ones least responsible and the ones who will be effected most by this crisis.”
15-year-old Thunberg has been outspoken on the climate catastrophe and led the school strike across the world.
Brilliant Minds is an annual event and took place in Sweden last weekend.
