Greta Thunberg returns to school after a year’s break…


Greta Thunberg is celebrating being back in school but accused nations of ignoring climate experts, despite the pandemic showing the importance of following science.

The 17-year-old from Sweden took a gap year from 2019 in a bid to force leaders from around the world to take action on climate change.

As her studies get back under way she told novelist Margaret Atwood during her guest editorship of BBC Radio 4’s Today programme the coronavirus crisis has ‘shone a light’ on how ‘we cannot make it without science’.

And she accused the world of listening to ‘one type’ of scientist, and ignoring others warning of climate change.

When asked if the pandemic’s impact on people’s appreciation of science could have an effect on climate information the teenager said: ‘It could definitely have.

‘I think this pandemic has shone a light on how … we are depending on science and that we cannot make it without science.

‘But of course, we are only listening to one type of scientist, or some types of scientists, and, for example, we are not listening to climate scientists, we’re not listening to scientists who work on biodiversity.

‘That of course needs to change.’
