London – Talk Europe launched the poll #ReplyEUonGreta @TalkeuropeTweet. The Swedish 16 years old climate activist addressed the EU Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety started her speech with these words: “My name is Greta Thunberg, I am 16 years old and I want you to panic”, urging the EU to act as if the house was on fire and to give absolute, immediate priority to solutions to stop the climate change over any other political issues.
Talk Europe published both Greta’s speech and replies from the Committee’s members.
1) Do you think the EU Committee understood the meaning of Greta’s words?
2) Overall, do you have the impression they are prepared to change the path they are on, as the young climate activist is asking?

Your answers will have an impact and will be visible: Talk Europe asks you to post your answer on Twitter #ReplyEUonGreta. You have two choices: or the short YES or NO Twitter poll or a longer answer on your views over what the EU Committee’s members stated.
