PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Greta Thunberg has said she "doesn't understand" why people have been listening to her for so long over climate change in an interview on Good Morning Britain. The activist appeared on GMB this morning (April 9) ahead of a BBC documentary about her activities, Greta Thunberg: A Year to Change the World , which airs on Monday (April 12). In the interview, she said the fact that people are still listening to her about climate change and are supporting her is "very strange" and that the attention she had received across the world had "spiralled out of what was reasonable". She did, however, say that she thought the support for her actions were due to it being "the right thing for someone to do at the right time". She said: "I don't understand it either.

"It was something no-one could have predicted I think, but now when I look back I'm very surprised that the attention has stayed on for so long, that people have kept on listening to what I'm saying for so long. "I thought people would get tired of me after just a few months but strangely enough people are still listening. "I have no idea why that is, I'm not that unique of a person but I guess it was just the right thing for someone to do at the right time and people were ready for that kind of thing, then one thing led to another.

. Then aged 17, the hugely influential Swedish activist had chosen Bristol as the location for her first UK demonstration. More than 20,000 people took to the streets of the city with her as the city welcomed her with open arms. However, she has not been universally popular, with Donald Trump among the more vocal opponents of her campaign throughout 2020.
Addressing this backlash from world leaders on GMB, she simply said she finds it "hilarious" when they take shots at her and says it is just a sign they do not want to confront the climate crisis. She said: "I don't see it as wanting revenge or something. I try as much as I can not to speak about individuals because that's what they do - they speak about me rather than the climate crisis itself. "If I was to do that too, I would be just like they are. "But it is very hilarious when they write and say these kinds of things. It's a very clear sign that they are seeing the climate movement as a threat and that rather than speaking about the climate crisis itself, they try to shift the subject to someone like me because it then becomes a question about me. "It's like if the fire alarm goes off, you start talking about the fire alarm instead of the fact that the house is actually burning."
