Greta Thunberg goes to Glastonbury: Teenage climate activist, now 19, will speak at the festival

Greta Thunberg will speak in Glastonbury today a “special appearance” at Britain’s biggest music festival.

The 19-year-old Swedish climate activist will speak from the Pyramid Stage at 5:15 p.m. to a backdrop showing how global temperatures have risen.

She is also expected to mention her book, The Climate Book, due out on October 27. Thunberg’s performance is followed by a performance by Californian rockers Haim.

How she got to the festival from Sweden, where she organizes school strikes, is unclear.

Celebrations – which have returned for the first time since Covid – began on Thursday, with thousands setting up camp through Tuesday.

An estimated 200,000 revelers flocked to Worthy Farm for the world’s most famous music festival.

A few minutes before the Glastonbury Festival, he tweeted: “We are very pleased to announce that Greta Thunberg will be making a special appearance on the Pyramid Stage at around 5:15pm today. Don’t miss it!’.

The pyramid stage has a background showing Professor Ed Hawkins’ warming streaks – a graph depicting the gradual increase in global temperatures over two centuries.

Back in 2019, murals of the environmental activist and school striker with the slogan “What would Greta do?” hung all over the festival.

Sheryl Crow dedicated “Soak Up The Sun” to the then 16-year-old activist three years ago.

Earlier this year, Greta launched a new book featuring 100 leading environmental experts and activists called the Climate Book

Then, as she spoke, she said, “This is the greatest story in the world, and it must be told as far and wide as our voices can carry, and beyond.”

“That’s why I decided to use my platform to create this book, based on the best scientific evidence currently available – a book that addresses the climate, environmental and sustainability crisis holistically.”

This year’s Glastonbury headliners include Paul McCartney, Kendrick Lamar and Billie Eilish, who last night criticized the US Supreme Court’s abortion law review in her explosive Pyramid stage set.

Taking the stage, she said it was a “dark day for women” after the US Supreme Court ruled to overthrow Roe V Wade when she took the stage at Glastonbury Festival on Friday.

The 20-year-old singer, who made her festival debut on The Other Stage at Worthy Farm in 2019, told the crowd she couldn’t bear to think about the ruling that ended constitutional abortion rights in the US, meaning individual states could decide whether abortion can be made illegal.

Also prominent at the festival were many Partygate flags with the motto “This is a work event” ripping Boris Johnson – a nod to the Prime Minister’s claim that lockdown-breaking gatherings are not parties.

Showers hit the festival yesterday morning – and there are fears of heavy rain tomorrow and showers on Sunday afternoon.
