Teenage climate activist responds to criticism, saying ‘when haters go after your looks and differences ... you know you’re winning’.

Greta Thunberg has spoken about her Asperger’s syndrome diagnosis after she was criticised over the condition, saying it makes her a “different”, but that she considers it a “superpower”.

Thunberg, the public face of the school climate strike movement said on Twitter that before she started her climate action campaign she had “no energy, no friends and I didn’t speak to anyone.

“When haters go after your looks and differences, it means they have nowhere left to go.

She has acknowledged that her passion for her climate crisis work was partly down to viewing the world in stark terms.

In July, Thunberg hit back at the Australian News Corp columnist Andrew Bolt for writing a deeply offensive column that mocked her diagnosis.

Thunberg responded by tweeting that she was “deeply disturbed” by the “hate and conspiracy campaigns” run by climate deniers like Bolt. »
