Fifteen-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg addressed the U.N. plenary last night in Katowice, Poland, condemning global inaction in the face of catastrophic climate change.

cheers

I now await all of the Koch bros.--funded anti-climate and anti-science propagandists and their simpering lily-livered shills (stand tall, Tommy Monk and SmellyBum'..) to flood the airwaves with their pathetic rhetoric...

Hypocritically claiming that school age children should be kept in school, and not be seen on the world stage, protesting against what big businesses and their political stooges are doing to this planets future..

Sadly, Tommy will be long dead and buried before the damage he and his like created has been repaired.
The shame is, he laughs at the crisis man made climate change is causing.
Let's hope for an early demise for all deniers, so that society can start repairing the havoc sooner rather than later.

If Tommy has caused damage then so have you, and so has wolfboy.

What's she on about, saying Sweden is a "small" country. It's massive, compared to most. Surface area-wise anyway.

For a 15yo she has a very joyless & careworn look about her. Odd.  

I respect her message tho. She's right.

She's a bit judgemental. I presume she also uses resources which create this global warming business.

She may have no choice to do so, being as she is 15 years old an unable to care for herself at that age Rags

She has a right to call out world leaders, when its hers and others futures at stake

The world has to start recognising this is a real threat for the future generations. It should be something they universally all join together to help prevent a disaster from happenning.

She is absolutely correct.
Until recently in the scheme of things the majority of people , not the rich or even the comfortably off, lived a life of conservation, we re - used items, we repaired items - machine and clothes, most people had few outfits to choose from, usually a best outfit for special occasions, church/chapel, weddings and funerals, a set of clothes for work and maybe a set for everyday wear we conserved energy because we couldn't afford to do otherwise financially, we hardly travelled from our immediate area, we worked in close proximity to where we lived, then suddenly it all that changed, you need to travel miles to work, by private transport, if you are lucky enough to have a job, which is usually non productive ie you no longer make anything or supply anything. We replace as opposed to repairing and we now want to travel far afield to have holidays from which the majority learn nothing. Growing up we never threw anything out that could be repaired or reused in some way.
The greatest problem remains overpopulation which no one seems to want to address.

She needs to get an independent education...


Most of the last 2000 years and 10000 years have been warmer than today!!!

Why would she need an independent education, when she is able to read scientific data better than you?

Lets for arguments sake agree with your ignorance on the past with your claim on a wramer climate

Which as is based locally and not globally.

Tell me Tommy. On the many epochs of history through climate change. How many species have survived and not become extinct?

I mean you must be the kind of most dumbest person to claim you were right, when you were one of the last humans left alive on earth

Whether you believe humans are causing claimte change or not. How is your thinking going to protect further generations?

Simple act on faith? As you do now based on bullshit?

She is a spoilt little rich kid puppet...


Check out who the parents are...


Funnily enough... the mother is also a big "climate change" activist...


That's when she's not busy flying round the world singing opera for rich people...


It's all a load of propaganda... And you have been well and truly suckered by it all!!!

So now she is spoilt by wanting to save the planet?

Come again?

So someone outspoken for the future is spoilt

Come again?

TYPICAL IGNORANCE AT ITS BEST

Ignore the facts and cast hate at someone trying to do good

Tommy, once again sounding like a leftist extremist everyday. Never debate the facts, but try to deligitimise the individual

wow

Perhaps she should tell her mother that flying around the world is causing air pollution.

Makes me laugh that people avoid the points she makes, and instead try to post up double standards.

Based off her flying out to reach more people?
Do they really expect her to walk the world to get her message across?

The mind boggles

I'm referring to her mother flying around the world in order to sing, but now you mention it, the girl had to fly there too, so she's contributing to world pollution.

How is her mother singing doing that?

If you're going to lecture to others, you need to be squeaky clean yourself.

At 15 she's either old enough to be listened to or she's not. Which is it?

If you want to talk about the plight of the planet, you can do so yourself - you don't need someone else to do it for you.

Didge must have missed the bit I said about the mother being a climate change activist...


The girl is just a repeater of the bullshit...


It is a fact that most of the last 2000 and 10000 years have been warmer than now!


Any idiot (or spoilt rich kid) can get up there and repeat the wafffle they've been scripted with... but you can't get away from the facts!!!
