  3. Greta Thunberg times Person of the Year

Greta Thunberg times Person of the Year

Ask a Question

It does seem like this 16 year old is the symbol of climate change activism. A good choice for Times Person of the Year 2019? Or are there others that should have won this title?

I think she was a good candidate but shes had loads of publicity when there are others worthy of the award that don't get the press coverage she does.

I agree. I guess she has a lot of backers that want her to be the face of this, and she indeed is very distinctI’ve in her manner and appearance...I suspect there will be a statue made of her in the near future

hspexy I hope she doesn't get a statue made of her. Yes she's raising awareness but so are lots of others around the world that don't get her recognition for doing their part for the environment.

I will sound awful for this but I really don't like her. I think what she is doing is brilliant but she shouldn't be person of the year. Yes we all need to be doing our bit for climate change and I fully admit I could do more but she is not the right person to do so. I find her very patronising and condescending, especially for a 16 year old.

I agree that enviroment / climate change must be taken more seriously, but shes nothing extraordinary. Many others are worthy of the same recognition & some more so. I also find she comes across condescending & quite arrogant actually, but I do admire her for standing up for her beliefs so strongly at just 16.
