Thunberg is a Swedish teen who skipped school to protest outside of her country’s parliament. She has gained notoriety for all of her work within the climate change activism movement.
She has condemned the United Nations for their lack of action to protect the environment.
Thunberg was also the driving force behind the coordinated strike from school that protested the government and business inaction on climate change. The strike took place in 150 countries.
“This is all wrong. I shouldn’t be up here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean, yet you all come to us young people for hope. How dare you,” she said in a speech.“People are suffering, people are dying, entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are in the beginning of a mass extinction, and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth.”
Shortly after, her powerful speech was turned into a Swedish death metal song that went viral online. The track officially got it’s own single, with all proceeds benefiting environmental rights group Greenpeace.
Now, in an interview with the Daily Mail, heavy metal singer Meat Loaf admitted that he thinks 17-year-old Thunburg doesn’t know what she’s talking about when it comes to climate change.
“I feel for that Greta. She has been brainwashed into thinking that there is climate change and there isn’t,” he says. “She hasn’t done anything wrong but she’s been forced into thinking that what she is saying is true.”
Thunberg has yet to comment on Meat Loaf’s words.
