Jeremy Clarkson has branded the eco-warrior Greta Thunberg ‘a stupid idiot’ and a ‘weird Swede with a bad temper’ in an explosive interview.
The 59-year-old gave his candid thoughts on the 16-year-old during promotion for The Grand Tour.
Clarkson – who regularly calls out the activist on social media and in his column with The Sun – has accused her of being a hypocrite.
Dismissing her as nothing more than ‘a stupid idiot,’ Jeremy said her speech at the United Nations offered no solutions when she accused leaders of stealing her ‘dreams and childhood’.
He told The Independent: ‘I think she’s a weird Swede with a bad temper. Nothing will be achieved by sailing across the ocean in a diesel-powered yacht, and then lying about the diesel engine.’
He added that we’ve been aware of climate change for quite some time, and now ‘there’s that weird Swede running around making all sorts of ‘we’re going to die’ noises, so we’re all aware of it.’
