A young activist isn’t content with anything. Of course. More can and should be done.
But did she say the above? Nope.
The Swedish activist told BBC Scotland she recognised that some countries “do a bit more than others” but that none were coming close to what was needed.https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-58387017
I know, by definition that means the headline is strictly speaking accurate but it’s also constructed to make us, here, feel negative even though we may have things to feel optimistic about:
SCOTLAND’S world-leading renewables sector has helped catapult the country into the top three European countries producing electricity from them, according to the latest statistics.
Figures for last year from the Scottish Government show that 97% of Scotland’s electricity was produced from renewable sources and, when compared with the latest data from the European body Eurostat, for 2019, Scotland is in the top three, with only [independent] Norway and Iceland producing more electricity from renewables that us.
Amongst the other nations behind Scotland in the renewables league table are [independent] Sweden, Denmark and Germany.
Scotland is also well ahead of the UK as a whole with just over a third (35%) of its energy from renewable sources.https://www.thenational.scot/news/19499830.scotland-top-three-renewable-generators-across-whole-europe/
Thunberg is Swedish. It means backyard. Clean up your own?
