Greta Thunberg – Time Magazine’s Person of the Year!

Dear Commons Community,

Time Magazine has named Greta Thunberg as its Person of the Year. 

The 16-year-old from Stockholm rose to global prominence this year with her impassioned pleas for governments to take far-reaching action to avert climate catastrophe.  Edward Felsenthal, Time’s editor-in-chief, described Greta, who is the youngest person to be named Person of the Year, as the “biggest voice on the biggest issue facing the planet.” 

Hillary Clinton tweeted that she “couldn’t think of a better” choice.

“I am grateful for all she’s done to raise awareness of the climate crisis and her willingness to tell hard, motivating truths,” Clinton said.

Senator Cory Booker was among the 2020 presidential candidates to congratulate Thunberg.

Great choice and congratulations to Greta!
