A mural, in San Francisco, has been painted to urge people to rise to take action against the apocalypse which is coming and will be caused by the drastic climate change happening.
Greta Thunberg will be looking down at the people from a building in San Francisco when an artist unveiled a huge mural of the teenage climate activist. He painted the activist's mural in the hope that people will realise the dangers of climate change and do their bits to bring the change.
At the age of 15, she protested outside the Swedish Parliament against the drastic climate change and was soon joined by the school students in thousands. After she made waves with her take on climate and top leaders inability to do anything about, She attended the 2018 United Nations Climate Change Conference and became the face of change.
In September 2019, she spoke at the UN Climate Action Summit in New York where she bluntly blamed the older generation for the environmental crisis the world is facing today. She was given a cold shoulder by the US President Donald Trump, and this made her very angry. Her expressions became the expression of anger against those who are powerful but unwilling to take any step to change the course of history.
She gave an interview before leaving North USA after 3 months. During the interview, Greta said that Donald’s ‘extreme denial’ towards climate change helped her in making the situation even more prominent among people. She said, “He's so extreme and he says so extreme things, so I think people wake up by that in a way. I thought when he got elected, now people will finally, now people must finally wake up. Because it feels like if we just continue like now, nothing's going to happen. So maybe he is helping.”
Talking about her mural in San Francisco, artist Andres Petreselli said that he never painted anything related to politics, religion or sports in his art. “But, this one is ... I feel connected with the politics behind (it) because I think it is real and if I have to compare it with the rest of my murals, this is the most political one that I ever made.”
With such great efforts being put by Greta, we hope that the people rise to take action and do whatever they can to save the environment.
