Teen activist to lawmakers: Forget praise, work on climate

Teen activist to lawmakers: Forget praise, work on climate

Swedish teen and climate activist Greta Thunberg reprimanded politicians at a packed room on Capitol Hill Tuesday afternoon. She along with a group of youth climate activists, asked the Democrats to save the praises and called for their leadership instead. ’Don’t invite us here to tell us how inspiring we are without doing anything about it,’ she added.

Greta is a firm example of why we shouldnt listen to children. She has no idea what she's talking about "don't listen to me listen to the scientist" well guess what yes there is a 97% consensus that scientists believe that the Earth's climate is changing but there isn't a 97% consensus that it is man-made there are a wide variety of theories and personally I believe the earth's climate to be autonomous if human beings do have any impact on the environment its most likely very small and either way we have no control of it whatsoever. Every time we listen to children on this matter we make stupid legislations that aren't accurate to the situation take for instance recently with that essay written by I think it was a nine-year-old about the plastic straws killing the turtles that ended up not being true and now we have legislation in California where you have to have paper straws that ruin the taste of the beverage and actually cause more environmental damaged then the plastic straws.

This is some of the stupidist shit I've ever heard -- "one of our planets greatest advocates." Obama: step away from the crack pipe.

HaHa! I see she has finally figured out which branch of the US government she should petition for change, so that is an improvement over last week. But... But then she goes and attaches the IPCC report and tries to pull off some sleight of hand skullduggery that it's a science paper - it's not, it's just a political opinion (or policy opinion if you prefer) by activist scientists. It is NOT the distilled Word of God on climate science. Sad to see this subterfuge and sneaky-sneaking.

I know it's not her fault, she is just a little child that's used by activists, but damn she is annoying!

Why the fuck is what children who are fed information and political views talking to congress? Greta is no climate expert. And people overhype her “zero emission” travel to the US as people literally had to fly to US to bring the vessel back. I think that climate change is something that needs to be discussed but making false outrageous claims doesn’t solve anything nor can climate change be mitigated without the use of nuclear power.

I agree with Greta, nobody should be listening to her about climate change or most things adult need to decide on. "Teenage activist Greta Thunberg appeared before members of the U.S. House of Representatives Wednesday to answer questions about climate change, but made it clear that she is not the one lawmakers should be listening to."

We have been hearing about these self-described "eco fascists" and their terrorism. What most people haven't heard about is the historical link between environmentalism and fascism. https://www.encounterbooks.com/features/rupert-darwall-totalitarian-roots-environmentalism/

I'm not taking this seriously because of the MSM hype Greta is getting. Feels entirely manufactured to me.
