Greta Thunberg’s mother, Malena Ernman is promoting her family’s new book, “Our House is on Fire: Scenes of a Family and a Planet in Crisis.” She is using her daughter’s story as a tool for publicity. If the phrase “our house is on fire” is familiar it is because Greta frequently uses it when speaking in public about climate change.
Malena Ernman gave an interview to The Guardian in which she described how Greta became an activist. Frankly, there really wasn’t any new information that surfaced, from what I’ve read. That’s the problem with the Thunberg story if the family is now trying to cash in with book sales – Greta Thunberg hasn’t suffered from a lack of publicity. The child is only 17 years old, after all. Her years of experience are just beginning.
The parents of Greta work in the entertainment industry so they crave the stage. Ernman is a well-known opera singer in Europe and Svante Thunberg, Greta’s father, is an actor. Both parents have essentially all but given up their own careers in order to pursue Greta’s activism in promoting climate change propaganda. Climate change alarmism, you might say, is the new family business. Just as Greta preaches, her parents have given up traveling by air and now drive to occasional professional engagements. Their first memoir about the family’s support of Greta was Scenes From the Heart.
