Book of the Month: No One Is Too Small to Make a Difference by Greta Thunberg
 By BRittany amalfi
Greta Thunberg’s Powerful Speeches Come to Life In This Eye-Opening Book About The Climate Crisis
No One Is Too Small to Make a Difference contains the powerful speeches of one, Greta Thunberg, a then fifteen-year-old Swedish girl who sparked a movement against the climate crisis. Thun- berg is known for school-striking climate change one day outside the Swedish Parliament, inspiring young people all over the world to protest the climate crisis. In her own words, we learn what Thun- berg said in her memorable meet- ings with organizations like the United Nations and the United States Congress to persuade peo- ple in power to help be the change the planet needs. Thunberg, hav-
ing Aspergers, considers it a gift because it helped her see the cli- mate crisis in “black and white” which is a common theme in her speeches. Greta Thunberg’s mis- sion to wake up the world and open everyone’s eyes to the crisis the planet is in has made an im- pact across the nations.
These Speeches Opened My Eyes to the Climate Crisis the World Is in and It Truly Matters
Greta Thunberg’s impactful speeches about the climate crisis and the role we all play can truly open anyone’s eyes to the kind of situation we’re in. And there’s no better book to spend Earth Day with because Thunberg breaks down what we have to do, as well as what politicians have to do in order to reverse the climate crisis. The young Swedish girl doesn’t
shy away from the situation the planet is truly in and she wears a face of bravery at every meet- ing she attends. Thunberg simply
states “This is not a political text. Our school strike has nothing to do with party politics. Because the climate and the biosphere don’t care about our politics for a single second.” She emphasizes that this is something that is bigger than all of us and arguing over the matter isn’t going to make a change, in fact, it’s going to prolong the pro- cess. Thunberg is an advocate for action and that is what she is try- ing to persuade politicians in her speeches.
Greta Thunberg’s powerful messages contain the fact that the world can’t sit in silence anymore. If we want to reverse the crisis, the world only has limited time to do so. She states that “According to the IPCC, we are less than 12 years away from not being able to undo our mistakes.” But Thun-
berg also emphasizes that it’s not too late to take action and change the course of action. She makes sure to reiterate that we have the facts and solutions; we just need to actually act on those solutions.
No One Is Too Small to Make a Difference highlights the powerful speeches of Greta Thunberg and her moving presence that sparked a nation of change. Thunberg was named TIME’s Person of the Year in 2019 due to her candor and bravery igniting millions of students to go on strike for the planet. What better way to spend Earth Day than by learning about what a young girl does to help protect our very planet. These speeches will inspire anyone to understand that they are capable of change.
