Singer-songwriter Billie Eilish has called out older generations to act on the current climate crisis

In an interview with NME, the Bad Guy star also praised climate activist Greta Thunberg for ‘doing her thing’ – saying she felt ‘honored to be compared to her’. 

‘We don’t wanna die yet’

“Hopefully, the adults and the old people start listening to us [about climate change] so that we don’t all die,” Eilish said. 

“Old people are gonna die and don’t really care if we die, but we don’t wanna die yet.”

‘There are things I can’t change’

The 17-year-old performer also responded to people criticizing her efforts to help the planet whilst traveling for her global tour

“Dude, I always see these posts that are like, ‘Why is this f***ing artist saying this sh*t when they’re taking planes to places?’ Bro, would you rather I just shut the f**k up and say nothing and then no one will ever do anything?,” Eilish told NME

“Yeah, maybe I’m doing something that’s not as perfect as somebody else, but there are things I can’t change. So because of those, I want to get the word out to other people. I want to do as much as I can and I want other people to do as much as they can.”
