(Daily Wire) On Friday, teenage environmental activist Greta Thunberg issued a warning and directive to shoppers on Black Friday, the biggest shopping day of the calendar: “Don’t buy stuff you don’t need.”
Thunberg also took note it was time for children to skip something they do need — education — by tweeting, “School strike week 119. Today is black Friday. Overconsumption is wrecking present and future living conditions and the planet itself. Don’t buy stuff you don’t need.”

Thunberg has described her role as an activist as committing to “hold[ing] the older generations accountable.”
In December 2018, Thunberg told CNN, “And we young people need to say that we must hold the older generations accountable for the mess they have created and expects us to live with. And say to them that we cannot continue risking our future like this. And so, we need to get angry and then we need to transform that anger into action.”
As The Daily Wire noted in March, a survey found that children have been suffering anxiety from the grim pronouncements that Thunberg and other climate-change activists have made:
A new study on “climate anxiety” found that famed child activist Greta Thunberg is not the only young person who has suffered from severe stress as a result of taking dire predictions about the planet by climate alarmists to heart.
“Climate anxiety: Survey for BBC Newsround shows children losing sleep over climate change and the environment,” the BBC Newsround report on its survey of 2,000 eight to sixteen-year-olds declares.
