Teen climate change activist Greta Thunberg has dramatically changed her view about rising sea levels after the misfortune of visiting Lowestoft.
The fiery young Swede was so horrified by what she saw she now hopes sea levels continue to rise and wipe the town out.
In a keynote speech to shocked tourism and eco officials at the Suffolk seaside resort, she said: “How dare you? This is all wrong. I shouldn’t be standing here in Lowestoft.
“I should be back in school on the other side of the North Sea. Yet you all come to us for hope? How dare you.
“Lowestoft is an absolute tip. Hopefully, sea levels will rise a foot or two and wipe the place off the map.”
Eco campaigner Lorraine Fisher, 34, was shocked by Greta’s out-of-character outburst.
“She must have been terribly affected by what she saw in Lowestoft to actually want the sea to rise.”
Young Greta, 17, was visiting Lowestoft to officially open a McDonald’s restaurant in the town.
Owner Owen Davies said: “She agreed to open the restaurant before flying off to the Davos summit in Switzerland.
“But we didn’t expect her to be quite so rude about Lowestoft.”
