JEREMY CLARKSON has branded Greta Thunberg a ‘spoilt brat’ after her emotional address to the United Nations last week.
In the speech, she accused everyone in the room of ruining her childhood by forcing her to take on the responsibility of saving the planet.
But The Grand Tour host (pictured above) wrote in his column for The Sun: ‘How dare you sail to America on a carbon fibre yacht that you didn’t build, which cost £15million that you didn’t earn, and which has a back-up diesel engine that you didn’t mention.
‘Pause for a moment to consider how soundly you sleep at night, knowing that adults are building and servicing and flying Sweden’s fighter planes. To keep you safe. We gave you mobile phones and laptops and the internet. We created the social media you use every day and we run the banks that pay for it all. So how dare you stand there and lecture us, you spoilt brat.’
He acknowledged that although the planet was heating up and ‘something needs to be done’, the teenager should get back to school and work hard in her science lectures.
‘Because science is what will solve the problem eventually. Not scowling and having screaming ab-dabs every five minutes. So be a good girl, shut up and let them get on with it.’
