The picture book Greta and the Giants by Zoë Tucker implies that Greta was the first climate activist.
The story is that giants are ruining the planet and the text reads: “No one told them to stop because everyone was scared of them. Everyone except Greta.”
When she bravely takes action, a young boy of color silently joins her. (Yep, a white girl gives birth to the climate movement and people of color follow.)
In the end note, where often picture books finally say a bit more of the actual story, the false narrative continues. It says, “Climate change is the biggest crisis humans have ever faced. Greta couldn’t understand why no one was doing anything about it.”
