Greta Thunberg said this in her speech at TFF

Teen activist Great Thunberg recently gave a speech at TFF which amazed many. Greta Thunberg says that world leaders that rally behind her advice to handle a global climate crisis would rather hold photo calls at her side than actively decrease environmental destruction. "Nathan (Grossman), the director, really wanted to portray this celebrity culture that we live in and really show how absurd it is," Thunberg stated at the Toronto Film Festival panel on Saturday. Her comments came as Greta, Nathan Grossman's documentary portrait of the Swedish climate activist, receives a North American premiere in Toronto.

Greta stated that celebrity culture distracts from the global climate change movement by crowding out red flag warnings from the scientific community. "Instead of focusing on the climate and listening to the scientific message, people are instead listening to and talking about me and talking about wanting to take pictures with me," the 17-year-old Swedish activist said as she held an informal virtual conversation at TIFF with fellow climate activist Autumn Peltier. The Hulu documentary Greta follows the teen activist from her school strikes in Sweden to being a climate change superstar for a global movement.

Grossman's film takes the Sweden native gaining a media spotlight for skipping school to protest in front of her country's Parliament, on her way to eventually approaching the UN in a viral speech that criticized world leaders for not doing enough to reverse the environmental crisis. While using her fame to convince world leaders to act on climate change, Thunberg said posing at their side for the media risked letting them off the hook. "It just feels more convenient because if you pose next to a climate activist, you say you care about the climate and don't have to do anything," Thunberg insisted.
