The 18-year-old Swedish climate activist teamed up with international charity Mercy For Animals to raise awareness about animal agriculture and its impact on the environment. In the new video, Ms Thunberg describes humanity’s relationship with nature as “broken”, but insists “relationships can change”.
The climate activist bluntly adds: “Because let’s face it, if we don’t change we are f****d.”
Ms Thunberg, who is a vegan, calls on people to shift to a plant-based diet.
She says: “Eighty-three percent of the world’s agricultural land is used to feed livestock, yet livestock only provide 18 percent of our calories.
“The way we make food, raising animals to eat, clearing land to grow food to feed those animals.
“If we continue we will run out of land and food.”
Ms Thunberg warns “countess” species are being driven to extinction by the way humans make food.
She says: “If we keep making food the way we do we will also destroy the habitats of most of the wild plants and animals, driving countless species to extinction.
“This really sucks for us to. They are our life-supporting system. If we lose them, we will be lost too.”
Ms Thunberg insists nature could heal if people switch to plant-based diets.
She says: “We know that we need to drastically reduce our emissions, starting now.”
“If we change towards a plant-based diet we could save up to eight billion tonnes of C02 every single year.
“We could feed ourselves on much less land and nature could recover.”

The climate activist also highlights how 70 percent of farm animals live in factories, as she pleads with people to consider how they feel.
She says: “Every year we kill more than 60 billion animals.
“What about their thoughts and feelings?
“Some animals plan for the future, forge friendships that last for decades, they play, they help each other, they show signs of what we call empathy.
“But 70 percent of the animals we farm live inside factories. Their lives are short and terrible.”
Ms Thunberg warns that while millions of people have died from coronavirus, the next pandemic could be “much, much worse”.
She says: “Up to 75 percent of all new diseases come from other animals because of the way we farm and treat nature.
“Cutting down forests and destroying habitats, we are creating the perfect conditions for diseases to spill over from one animal to another, and to us.
“The next pandemic could be much, much worse. But we can change.”
Ms Thunberg ends the powerful video, released on the International Day for Biological Diversity, by urging people to change.
She says: “It is heartbreaking to know all this but it is also our opportunity.
“We know what we can do. We can change the way we farm. We can change what we eat. We can change how we treat nature.
“Some of us have lots of choices, while some have none at all. Those with the most power have the most responsibility and most of us can do something. So what will you do?”
