Swedish climate activist to sail across the Atlantic

16-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg will sail across the Atlantic in a high-speed racing yacht next month to attend UN climate summits in the US and Chile. This is a part of a sabbatical year she will spend in the US.

Daughter of an actor and an opera singer is encouraged to be overtly melodramatic and self important? 🤔 Story checks out. If she really wanted to make a statement and had a burning desire to prove a point sh''d ditch the free ride on the high tech yacht across the Atlantic Ocean where everyone else is doing the work for her, and use her year off to wal//bicycle to the real heavy emission culprits in India and China instead.

Oh no, a Swede? Wasn’t the last teenage, Swedish activist that idiot who wouldn’t let a plane take off that was “deporting” an Afghan man who had beaten the hell out of his wife and children numerous times? Another robotic Swede devoid of free thought and the ability to observe contrary data or hear alternative opinions. Neutral countries never learn from their mistakes because the consequences are minimal.

It seems appropriate that, if she were to pursue this activism for her entire life, that she may want to go to an academy and study the hard sciences; chemistry, biology, physics, etc. She could better understand climate literature and have a better understanding of what is true and what is complete nonsense. That, and probably study some philosophy as well while she is at the academy, including some of the big ones (Aristotle, Descartes, Aquinas, Mill though I think liberalism is garbage, etc.) If you are going to be a climate activist, know at least what are you talking about and be able to communicate with people. And I really do not feel like addressing the question of whether climate change is real at the moment. Please do not attack me over this point

Were she a real environmentalist, she'd bike across the Atlantic.

why is the UN listening to a 16 year old? shouldn't that spot be taken up by I don't know... scientist? I have no issues with her being proactive. I just think she should stay in school for a few more years before trying to tell others what to do.

She is a retard. she believes in global warming. This is enough reason to question warmism.

To be fair she doesn't travel like wannabe climate activist à la Leonardo diCaprio or Al Gore who have a bigger carbon footprint than most towns in the world. Then again he whole believe is based on disproved "science" and probably influenced by virtue signaling teachers. But the girl is only 16. There is still hope for her. The only reason she rose to prominence is that the media will lift anybody up who supports the believes shared on their ivory bubble!
