ABBA star Björn Ulvaeus Praises Greta Thunberg For Global Climate Movement

Pop legend Björn Ulvaues is showing support for climate activist and fellow Swede Greta Thunberg. 

The ABBA star has released a video message describing the teenager as a “populist nightmare” who’s causing the patriarchy to “piss in their pants in fear of a 16-year-old girl with superpowers.”

Björn says he can’t understand why she’s copping so much criticism for trying to do something postive: “She drives some people, mostly men, crazy, and I find it difficult to understand where that anger comes from.”

“How can you stoop so low as to criticise the looks of a child? A young girl. The reason is of course the lack of counter arguments,” he says.

In less than one year, Greta has created a global movement calling on governments to take urgent action on the climate crisis.

Donald Trump for example, took aim at the 16-year-old on Twitter with a sarcastic comment saying, “she seems like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future.”

Björn adds, “even if you don’t think that everything that Greta says or does is unquestionable, you have to admire her guts and her focus. It’s a monumental achievement to create a global mass movement from scratch in such a short time.”
