#2: Greta Thunberg on fighting coronavirus and the climate crisis simultaneously

The latest episode of The big interview features climate activist Greta Thunberg.

Arguably one of the world’s most influential people, and certainly one of the most famous teenagers, Greta launched the school strikes for climate in 2018, which have since gone global. Her strike started outside the Swedish parliament when she was 15. Since then she’s addressed the United Nations and been nominated twice for the Nobel Peace Prize. Now, because of the global threat of coronavirus, she’s taken her activism, and the strikes, online. In a wide-ranging and intimate conversation, New Scientist’s Adam Vaughan spoke to Greta about coronavirus, her dawning understanding at eight years old about the climate crisis, how she was raised, and what it’s like being so famous. https://www.newscientist.com/podcasts
