In a shocking turn of events, climate change activist Greta Thunberg has once again taken center stage, this time in Ukraine. She met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and a group of European figures to discuss the alleged environmental damage caused by the war. But before we applaud her for her heroic efforts, let’s take a closer look at what she actually said.
Thunberg wasted no time in criticizing the global response to a dam explosion that resulted in flooding in Russian-occupied areas. She blamed both Russia and Ukraine for the destruction, conveniently ignoring the fact that Russia has been waging war on Ukraine for years. It’s easy for her to point fingers and shame the rest of us, but maybe she should place some blame where it rightfully belongs.
The 20-year-old activist went on to claim that environmental destruction is a form of warfare. While it’s true that flooding has been used as a tactic in war, Thunberg fails to mention that Ukraine has also used hydraulic warfare to impede Russian advances. It seems she conveniently forgot that history lesson.
But let’s not stop there. Thunberg and her environmentalist buddies also like to talk about the environmental impact of explosives. Well, no kidding! War is always destructive, and until there are peace agreements, there will be destruction. Maybe Thunberg should spend less time lecturing us and more time pushing for a diplomatic solution.

But perhaps the most laughable part of Thunberg’s tirade is her call for more people to share their stories and spread awareness. Newsflash, Greta: We’ve all heard your story, loud and clear. It’s about time you start listening to the other side and considering alternative viewpoints. Your one-sided narrative is getting old.
In the end, Thunberg’s trip to Ukraine is just another attempt to shame the rest of us for not doing enough to combat climate change. But maybe instead of jetting around the world and lecturing others, she should focus on finding real solutions. Until then, I’ll be over here, skeptical of her motives and wishing she would just take a seat.
