Greta Thunberg brutally slammed by Jaguar Land Rover boss!


Jaguar Land Rover’s (JLR) outgoing boss accused Greta Thunberg and other climate activists of “doing wrong in many areas” by drawing attention to the issue of climate change but offering no way to tackle it. Ralf Speth, who has headed the car manufacturer for ten years, said that Thunberg’s criticism was “not justified” because businesses had also created a better world.

Mr Speth, who is 64, said: “Greta created the wake-up call for many companies and people.

“But on the other hand, this kind of very populistic criticism — we destroyed her life, killed this and that — is not justified because we also created a better life.

“Wealth, health, education — the world is getting better.

“There is still a lot to do. But populism should be combined with ideas to make it better.

“There is no contribution, no ideas, just: ‘You’re all stupid.’ ”

Despite axing thousands of staff last year, Jaguar Land-Rover still employ around 40,000 people, mainly in the UK, while also supporting tens of thousands of jobs in the supply chain.
