"It goes to hell. "The situation is urgent and we must take greater steps than ever to turn the boat around. Or no: in order to curb the. Roughly, it is the starting point, for just as Greta Thunberg exemplary out so thats our house. "
"The last few weeks, thousands of swedes started to follow Instagramkontot ”Unsuspecting influencers” who write about celebrity election, and the media to follow suit. Now it happens something! The discussion is started and people are stoked. "
"But what is it then, civil society mobilisation when our survival is threatened? What is involved, and we gather around? Position of the angry mass next to Greta outside parliament with placards? Surrounded big business and världsledarnas workplaces, in order to be accountable to?"
"No, the large the stand outside the blogger Kenzas door and gapes. She gets the hell not fly a single time! is the message (and she does it, she will indeed say that it is wrong while she does it)."
"It seemed to be something new, to tens of thousands felt so strongly for the release, seems rather to be about people who are rushing to see celebrities get in a boot. We love to read about when it shits itself for successful people. They do not themselves become uthängda, but in many cases, travelling just as much and luxuriously, like (so far?) that spectacle is fun to follow. This is fun! Instead of discussing the election buzz and tanned it around matborden, in the papers and in the largest poddarna about celebrities that goes in the defensive, responds jokingly, ignore, or block. Influencerna are narcissists and they should at least answer the questions they get on the internet, it said. But if we are to be honest, not EVERYONE knows that it is bad to fly? "
"Sorry I'm not laughing with."
"I get rather frustrated and worried. Is this a conversation about a crisis that is already here, that affects people now, should be about? To Angelica Blick, who is popular because she is extremely skilled at taking travel photos, must stop the trip immediately? When climate change finally seems like a hot topic of conversation do we laugh at that Rickard Olsson has gone on vacation, at the same time, the policy we vote on is still based on the same ideas about growth and unchanged lifestyle that has put us in this situation."
"the Reporting and the discussion about the climate crisis has often focused on plastbanta at home, buy a new one, but the ”green” car, and to skip meat at least one day a week."
"We put our limited energy on many small things and miss the target. It is not wrong to do these things, for many who have thought about the problem, it is impossible not to change their behaviors. And to a klimatdiskussion brought is encouraging, but I feel depressed when it is again de-railas to be about which celebrity who answered what. "
"over-reliance on consumer empowerment driven by and play capitalism and big business straight into the hands. Political reforms worthy of the names let themselves be expected when we are lulled in security is that we are miljöhjältar writing to the influencers on one day and buying organic cucumber the next. "
"The never-ending river of climate-tips, namely the us, the masses, the civil society, not to challenge power, system and standards. We sit still in our burning house. In the best case, with a set Mallorcaresa on the conscience and toothpaste without palm oil on the toothbrush, to do our bit to help. "
"the problem is, a celebrity with many followers and writes about travel, or is the problem that everyone wants to follow someone who writes about travel? That we have throughout the modern era have built up and continue to confirm the picture of happiness and success as to be urbane and rich? Is celebrity flygvanor symptom of an underlying, old problems, or are the influencers that create a new problem now? Changed or challenged really the norm of an artist flying a little less, or if an actor or actress is tanned in social media? "
"over-reliance on the individual's responsibility is fooling us to believe that we are what we consume, at the same time that we criticize others most based on their consumption. And that is exactly what capitalism is about, to identify ourselves with consumption and the rat race can spin on. "
"If someone with very much influence going to stop flying, I do not want that they do it solely for that flight is bad in itself, but more for the change in the deep inpräntade the picture of success. Then it is not enough to say that the flight is bad, for we know already. And it all already understood will not be the change."
"But we can request from the young influencers on the analysis, when to and talks about them staying at that they really ought to say that it is bad to fly? When to and with critics, the media, and followers will continue to focus on the celebrity instead of why we like traveling that consumption is the height of success, and how we change the norm."
"When the only way for our civilisation's survival is radical political decisions and comprehensive changes in our lifestyle, I become terrified of the large call stops at what the celebrities consume, and what individuals should put in the shopping cart."
