To the editor: Congratulations to Greta Thunberg on being named Person of the Year by Time magazine.
As is always the case, there are some who criticize the selection, saying that there are others, Nancy Pelosi for example, who have had a greater, more significant impact on world events. I disagree. I believe that Greta Thunberg has done more than anyone else to inform and convince the people of the world of the gravity of global warming, that it is the most serious crisis that the world has ever faced. This awareness is a necessary first step to realizing change.
At 16 years old Greta is by far the youngest person ever to receive Time’s Person of the Year Award in its 92-year history. She deserves it. In just a few short years she has brought more people together in opposition to global warming than anyone else. Jane Fonda counts her as a mentor and role model.
Greta has Asperger’s syndrome. She calls this her superpower. Her heart is in exactly the right place and her mind is laser-focused on her goal. The actions she has taken to inform the world are intuitive to her, but she has executed them with brilliance.
