Greta Thunberg Accuses WEF Elites of ‘Fueling the Destruction of the Planet’

Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg has accused globalist elites attending the World Economic Forum (WEF) summit in Davos of “fueling the destruction of the planet.”

Thunberg made the comments shortly after arriving at the lavish Swiss ski resort for Klaus Schwab’s annual gathering.

She blasted attendees while speaking to reporters alongside other climate activists from the event.

Thunberg returned to Davos to join a panel that debated how the world can rapidly accelerate the clean energy transition.

Her appearance at the WEF summit comes shortly after she was accused of faking her arrest while protesting the expansion of a coal mine in Germany, as Slay News reported.

The activist claimed she was “detained” by police.

However, a video later emerged to suggest that the incident, which saw Thunberg removed by police officers in front of the media, was “staged.”

“We are right now in Davos where (there are) basically the people who are mostly fuelling the destruction of the planet,” she said from the summit in the Swiss Alps on Thursday morning.

“The people who are at the very core of the climate crisis, the people who are investing in fossil fuels, etc, and yet somehow these are the people that we seem to rely on for solving our problems.”

She also insisted that we should listen to those actually affected by the so-called “climate crisis.”

The 20-year-old Swede made a splash when she attended the forum as a teenager in January 2020.

At the time, she warned that “our house is still on fire” and complained that her demands had been “completely ignored.”

President Donald Trump fired back at her comments to bash “the perennial prophets of doom.”

This week, she and fellow activists Helena Gualinga of Ecuador, Vanessa Nakate of Uganda, and Luisa Neubauer of Germany launched an online petition.

Their campaign demands that energy firms stop any new oil, gas, or coal extraction projects – or face possible legal action.

More than 870,000 people had signed the petition by late Wednesday.

The activists don’t offer any solutions for replacing fossil fuels, however, nor do they have a plan to support the large portion of society that depends on energy from oil, gas, and coal if their demands are met.

The four campaigners will be among the panelists to discuss with Birol on Thursday calls to end new investments in fossil fuels.

They will also demand that so-called “global warming” is limited to 1.5 degrees Celsius, organizers said.

The IEA, which advises governments, said in a report in October that the energy crisis triggered by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine was causing changes that could hasten the transition to a “more sustainable and secure energy system.”

Thunberg was among a group of people “hauled away by police” on Tuesday during a protest near the German village of Luetzerath.

The abandoned village is being demolished to make way for a coal mine expansion.

They were not formally arrested.

Her actions were praised in Davos by former US Vice President Al Gore.

Gore, whose swimming pools use more energy than several average American homes, has previously won a Nobel Peace Prize for his work on “climate change.”

“I agree with her efforts to stop that coal mine,” Gore told a panel discussion on “global warming.”

He added that young people worldwide despaired of leaders’ efforts to tackle the alleged “climate crisis.”

“We are not winning” the fight against “global warming,” he added.

Every year, “climate change” is a major topic at the annual summit in Davos.

Attendees will hear lectures on how to meet the “green agenda” goals of the World Economic Forum.
