A TEN-YEAR-OLD eco-warrior has been told that his concern for the environment is a passing fancy he will grow out of.
Joshua Hudson’s parents have explained that, while well-meaning, his desire to save the planet will eventually give way to the demands of adult life such as being able to drive a car and jetting off on holiday twice a year.
His mum Emma said: “I get it. I used to be heavily into New Kids On The Block when I was Josh’s age but now I realise they were absolutely ridiculous. It’s the same thing.
“By the time he’s in his teens though he’ll discover new things that’ll capture his attention like girls and booze, and all this nonsense about melting glaciers and rising sea levels will become a distant memory.”
Dad Martin added: “The sooner the better. That little shit’s acting like eating a vegan sausage roll from Greggs makes him Greta f**king Thunberg.
“You know what has a massive carbon footprint? Children. But funnily enough he seems to ignore that fact when giving me a condescending lecture about why I should be using a bamboo toothbrush.”
Joshua said: “I wish I could grow out of it, but mum and dad will have long since destroyed the planet and we’ll all be dead by then.”
