Greta Thunberg gets attention again, this time not physically but in a huge mural which is gazing down onto San Francisco after an artist unveiled the artwork in a bid to remind residents of the dangers posed by climate change.
An environmental Portrait
The distasteful screech of “How dare you?” on the screens still reminds us about the emotions expressed by 16-year-old Greta Thunberg. Climate change is an issue that has occurred because of the people who have messed up the world for their own selfish goals. The Swedish environmental activist had earlier voiced up about the present situation of climate change and surprisingly her campaigning has gained international recognition.
The 16-year-old has left the US for now, but she has all eyes on the nation, watching people’s behavior for their next move. In a mural 60 feet high and 30 feet wide on the side of the Native Sons Building near Union Square, the Swedish climate change activist now keeps a watch on San Francisco.
Leaving the United States
16-year-old Thunberg informed on Twitter that she would be leaving the United States by boat on Wednesday, going for a United Nations climate change conference in Madrid in December. On leaving, she rejected taking an airplane because she believed that it would release high levels of greenhouse gas.
Andres Petreselli an Argentine street artist painted the 60ft portrait to remind residents of the dangers posed by climate change. “I do not discuss politics, religion or sports. But, this one is … I feel connected with the politics behind (it) because I think it is true and if I have to compare it with the rest of my paintings, this is the most political one that I ever made,” Andres said.
“We are just assuming that it stops and makes them(people) think, that this will magnify Greta’s message, that people will start to know the clear call for action that she is giving out,” Paul Scott, the executive director of OneAtmosphere.org, the San Francisco nonprofit that funded the work said.
