Just when you thought the world couldn’t get any sillier
A bronze statue of teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg has been unveiled at a university in the UK, with critics branding it a “vanity project.”
The University of Winchester proudly revealed the ‘inspirational’ statue’, claiming it was the first life-size sculpture of the Swedish campaigner.
However, critics blasted the statue as indicative of a cult of personality, while others questioned how much carbon emissions were emitted in the making of the structure.
The university’s student union also voiced opposition to the statue, which cost £24,000, saying the money could have been spent on better things.
