Tim's British president, Tim Tim Clark, has praised 16-year-old eco-activist Greta Thunberg
The Emirates boss praised eco-activist Greta Thunberg for saying that the industry & # 39; is not doing enough & # 39; to tackle climate change. During the Dubai Air Show industry event, the British president of Emirates, Tim Tim Clark, said he is now a & # 39; believer in climate change & # 39; used to be.
Clark, 69, said: & The grim reality of climate change lies with us. I have to say, it took me too long to get here. And we [airlines] don't do ourselves any favor by throwing billions of tons of carbon into the air. & # 39;
Clark has been President of Emirates since 2003, which carries 150,000 passengers every day. He said he was the Extinction Rebellion presure group and 16-year-old activist Thunberg & # 39; very nice & # 39; found because he & # 39; had really emphasized the issue & # 39 ;.
He added that although he did not approve of campaigners' methods, they & # 39; have a role to play & # 39 ;.
Analysts speculate that airlines may suffer from an increase in & # 39; flight shame & # 39 ;. Emirates uses 100 million barrels of oil annually and ordered £ 7 billion worth of new aircraft yesterday.
Clark believes that less polluting fuels can help combat climate change, and more direct air routes would mean less fuel being used.
