Greta Thunberg Chastises Business Elite in Davos

Thunberg accused powerful individuals of prioritizing short-term profit over long-term sustainability.

This week, the World Economic Forum was held in Davos, Switzerland, with powerful individuals in the business and political sectors gathered to discuss the global economy and major factors related to it. One of the guest speakers at the event was young climate activist Greta Thunberg, who earlier this week participated in a protest of the expansion of a German coal mine.

Thunberg spoke frankly to the gathered individuals, chastising many of the business and political elite present for being willfully ignorant of the ongoing climate crisis in favor of short-term gain.

“We are right now in Davos where basically the people who are mostly fueling the destruction of the planet, the people who are at the very core of the climate crisis, the people who are investing in fossil fuels etcetera, etcetera and yet somehow these are the people that we seem to rely on solving our problems,” Thunberg said.

“They have proven time and time again that they are not prioritizing that. They are prioritizing self-greed, corporate greed and short-term economic profits above people and above planet.”

“These people are going to go as far as they possibly can as long as they can get away with it. They will continue to invest in fossil fuels, they will continue to throw people under the bus for their own gain,” she added.
