Greta Thunberg: ‘Don’t Buy Stuff You Don’t Need’

(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.”

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:
