‘She’s happy’: Greta Thunberg’s father says climate activism helped her beat depression


When she decided to do this, we said,
you know, quite clearly that we would not support it. Why did you say that? Obviously, we thought it was a bad idea. Putting yourself out there with all the
hate on social media. Three or four years before she went
on the school strikes, she fell ill and she stopped talking, she stopped eating
and all these things. She stopped going to school.
She was basically home for a year. Now she’s just like any other … You think she’s not ordinary now
because she’s special and she’s very famous and all these things. But to me, she’s now an ordinary child. She can do all the things like
other people can. And she’s happy.

  1. I suppose channeling out your anger onto random strangers could reduce YOUR depression but now I am depressed. I've been recycling 20+ years, actively chose to use recycled products whenever possible, and carrying my tumbler for the past 10+ years. What did this little brat do beside eating with plastic utensils, drinking out of plastic bottles and proudly posting it on twitter? More importantly, what makes her think she even qualifies to yell at people like me who makes everyday effort to leave less marks on our planet?

  2. Hey Greta go to the country's that are most responsible.

    what?? And take a chance of being exposed to my lies? NEVER! HOW DARE YOU!

  3. Everybody knows the world is gonna end inn 12 years. AOC said so!

    Here's a fact: AOC is an opiate abuser. She's on some form of Vicodin etc etc.
    People who do opiates talk just like AOC does……so sure of themselves and confident etc etc…and she has that look in her eyes. I've seen it countless times with people. Trust me. I know these things! AOC is a druggie.

  4. Seriously, 44 Ferrari….Well gave us a break with your speeches Greta. Who needs 44 cars when you can drive only one at the time.

  5. Climate activism as therapy. Just because it was the topic she was obsessed with: it seems like it could've been anything else!

  6. This whole thing was manufactured by a PR firm. Wait till the little muppet finds out that people are still flying and eating meat.

  7. The way that many have talked about Greta online is disgusting. She is just a kid. You don't have to hate a kid just because she is impassioned with something that you disagree with.

  8. Thats great, now thats shes beaten depression, maybe she can go debate the opposition to climate change. That I doubt as her argument wouldn't stand up.

  9. So, do the Thunbergs completely eliminate fossil fuels in their daily lives? After all it is winter in Sweden. How do they keep warm?

  10. She is a silly stupid little girl. Reckons she has gone all around the world preaching about climate change. How has she got all around the world, damn sure she hasn't walked it. Parents are bloody stupid to let her. She is mentally ill.

  11. Os pais dessa menina são muito irresponsáveis, por permitir que ela seja usada como uma marionete, por organizações que só têm um objetivo: "arrecadar fundos".

  12. She sailed in and left on a plane.
    She is a very sick little girl full of rage. She insights rage when she talks much like Hitler did.
    Her parents should be charged with child abuse for doing this to her. He seams to be ok with her little hunger strike.
    She will be labeled a terrorist before long.

  13. Why she didn,t say : " Iam glad to be Home soon to see my Mother, my Sister and my dogs ?"
    It is up to you to say :"stop it now "and show her the bright side of the life

  14. He is now in the media because he knows what we all know he has used a vunerable child as his mouthpiece to push his sick nasty agenda on hard working people.
    Apologys too late.

  15. I read the abusive and ignorant comments for a laugh. Everything helps her, even all the hate. It's astonishing how these people jump on her every chance they get.

  16. Maybe he should act like a responsible father. Put his child back in school, get her medical help, and make sure the crazy made up nonsense the globalist have her spouting around the world is countered by actual science.

  17. The looser, who no one would listen, is using her to fulfill his ambitions. Failing neoliberal ideology is already is using children to promote itself , that’s the behind of attention and prize she gets for her creepy performances. World gone mad.

  18. Boyan Slat was a 16 y old boy who tried to change the world by doing a project with their classmates to help clean up the sea, he never stopped going to school, he never organized a strike, others followed him, just because of the same cause he was a part of, learn that Greta, you are nothing for us, if you are trying to get political favor or benefits for being a woman, you ain't getting that from us, the state might give you that power, but the power relies on us, the state is a lie, we let then steal us because we don't understand that a state is just an idea and entity…..

  19. Her father is so happy for his daughter, we all know that Greta has done something that no other child has been able to or will be able to achieve. However, we all love her and are grateful for her having the guts, determination, moxey, hutspah and just conviction to not only do what's right but for the most part doing it very respectfully and she been very aware of staying on the subject. Happy New Year to Greta her family and happy 17th birthday. We hope you live forever!

  20. Well her father certainly was right about hate on social media, you m*ther f*ckers! Go hate each other but not somebody who wants what's best for us all. Sh*t for brains!

  21. How she gonna get a man when every fker just pictures her mental little scrunched up face and the words. HOW DARE YOU……

  22. Wonderful! Now that she's made the young people worldwide crazy, divided the generations and helped put "higher taxes" on every government's agenda, she's HAPPY.
    She's famous and rich now. Maybe that's all she needed to cure her personality disorder. She seems to be a lot more shallow than she tries to portray herself as.

  23. Her moms PR guy runs a digital ad company….🤔 oh and her mom published a climate book 🤔 she is deprived but her family is LOAD€D and she got a Tesla at 16 🤔

  24. shame on you for allowing her to be put in this position, she is not actually doing ANYTHING for the planet but shouting at old men. Boyan Slat should have been awarded Person of the Year, not a child who does nothing practical or helpful for anyone… exploitation for fame and attention.

  25. Funny how there's international attention on the little Rat but not on the countless Sexual Crimes happening in Swedenstan… Shock Horror

  26. I can just imagine Greta first morning of her marriage, saying to her husband ,
    You’ve destroyed my toast
    You’ve destroyed my coffee
    You’ve stolen my milkshake
    The climate in this house is due for a climate change 😂🤣

  27. He says she stopped eating for a year and that's every parent's worst nightmare. Tell that to some African mum desperately trying to find any scrap of food for her kids. Seriously how can anyone pay attention to this family?
