"I come from Sweden, and back there it's almost the same problem as here. As everywhere. That nothing is being done to stop the climate and ecological crisis," said Greta Thunberg at an Extinction Rebellion protest in London on Earth Day. Rumored to be on the shortlist for the next Nobel Peace Prize, Thunberg, along with European youth activists who went on strike, and the London-based Extinction Rebellion have repeatedly drawn large crowds to protest the apparent fact of nothing effective being done to truly stop catastrophe. And it is this work that we consider in the July Green Series at BPL.
