Sir David Attenborough has lauded teenage climate change activist Greta Thunberg, praising her “passion” and “insight”.

And while she may have rubbed the usual suspects up the wrong way in recent times (both Piers Morgan and Jeremy Clarkson have publicly lambasted the 16-year-old in the last month), Sir David has insisted that she still has a fan in him.

“Greta Thunberg is there because of her passion, her insight and her concern about the future,” he said. “She’s a political person, she’s not a broadcasting person.”

Sir David also joked: “Making programmes like this, I’ve been doing it for a long time, and I’m sure a hell of a lot of young people are saying, ‘For God’s sake, why doesn’t he move over? Give another person a chance’, but anyway there I am.”

Greta’s most famous moment in terms of her climate change activism is probably the address she gave at the UN last month, criticising world leaders for not having taken enough action to protect the planet.

This speech was recently remixed by another of her famous supporters, DJ and music producer Fatboy Slim, who included her speech in a new version of his signature tune Right Here, Right Now.

Over the track’s iconic instrumental, Greta is heard saying: “We will not let you get away with this. Right here, right now is where we draw the line. The world is waking up. And change is coming, whether you like it or not.”

Greta’s declaration of “right here right now” is then repeated on a loop, where the phrase would have been heard in the original mix.

Speaking about how his new show sees him aiming to present facts about climate change, Si David said: “Of course they have an emotional impact because reality has an emotional impact, and we do our best to be honest and as truthful and as eloquent as the subject deserves. That’s our job.”

Teens use 'OK boomer' to fire back at older generations' criticisms .
"A boomer is really more of a type of personality, someone who is intolerant to new ideas and who is ignorant to new ideas," one teen said.But then Brennan, 17, seized on the two words the teens had used over and over since the end of the summer to push back against adults who annoyed them and friends who they felt acted close-minded.
