Jezza has gone on record as saying that activist Greta Thunberg is the reason that young people ‘Hate Cars’.
The 59-year-old former Top Gear presenter said that the activist’s war on climate change has meant that young people are now not keen on cars that use lots of fossil fuels.
He called the 16-year-old girl an ‘idiot’ for ‘saying we’re all going to die’, adding that making such claims wouldn’t help her cause.
Speaking to The Sun, he said: “Everyone I know under 25 isn’t the slightest bit interested in cars – Greta Thunberg has killed the car show.”
“They’re taught at school, before they say ‘Mummy and Daddy’, that cars are evil, and it’s in their heads.”
However, although he’s been a big critic of climate change activism, he has said that he now accepts global warming and climate change are ‘definitely a thing’.
He’s even taken it on board for his next TV show, which will look at the issue due to be aired next month.
