I saw the news tonight and was really impressed by this young woman. Whether you believe in what she says or not, she came across as a passionate, caring, confident and someone who believes in her cause.

 

More power to her.

 

It would appear that Trump is not a believer in climate change and is walking away from the Paris agreement, yet, ironically goes to chair a meeting on religious persecution.

 

Watch Greta below.

Being a dyed in the wool cynic, I'm wondering which vested interest is pulling her strings and financing all this world travel, but she does annoy my socks off too

Ditto ...On all counts ....type of precocious child that really yanks my chain 

Where's her mandate?

Who says she speaks on behalf of … anyone?

Is what she says just her view, or prompted by others? If 'others' … who are they?

 

What she's trying to do is admirable but using increasingly hysterical and emotive language doesn't help.

There are no sudden solutions - what does she really expect to happen?

What's anyone's mandate?  Most of those corps and federations who lobby Trump only mandate is money and the interest of getting more money.

Should anyone have a view? Or should organised money just be listened to?

Is it emotive?  Give her a break, she's a youngster passionate about her cause.  

She  wants a revision of the system that's halved global genetic diversity in little over her short lifetime.  I expect she's rightfully cynical about global capitalism.

She's a media construct, everything she says or does is choreographed by adults who are using her.  These adults includes Al Gore and business types who stand to make a mint if she gets many people believing in her.   It's all a conjob and they are using a little child, with a mental illness, to get their BS message across...and demonising those who challenge her.   It's rather scandalous.

Really?  Like Boris Johnson.  Like most of our MPs, right-wing hacks, media constructs to promote the right wing agenda of billionaire press barons and lobbying of big oil, big military, big pharma?  If this young woman is a pawn of vested interests, then why not object to the hundreds of whores to global vested interests?

Right wing hacks?  most of our media are neoliberal or openly left wing hacks, who attack anyone who speaks out against Miss Thunberg, they hang off every word Greta (never achieved anything in her life) Thunberg says...as if she's an expert.  

 

However, I agree with you on our MP's.

 

And I most certainly do object to the "whores to global vested interests"...but please, don't be telling me that this child (with a mental health condition) isn't being used by those very same "whores to global vested interests" that you speak of...the new global vested interests are for huge "Eco friendly" money making machines businesses and their billionaire owners are using us to make them more money by installing fear into us by using children. 

 

Oh how little you know Vids....yes Neoliberal but, left wing hacks. I think not! more right wing. Greta ( as you say never achieved anything in her life) FFS! give her a break, she's very young and hasn't had the chance yet. Cut her a bit of slack. And as to the global thing and her being 'used'  I so, so happen to disagree with you

Very young people have actually lifted a finger and done useful things.

 

Her name is Cynthia Sin Nga Lam, 17, from Australia, who invented a water purification system that doesn't require an external power source, there are others if you wish to look them up, around the same age as the puppet girl Greta Thunberg...these people actually do good things for the environment and doesn't talk nonsense about wanting to trash our way of life because she thinks the world will end otherwise. 

 

If our journalists were mostly right wing (as you seem to think) why is she not getting any backlash or criticism? Maybe one or two newspapers are conservative leaning, but the rest of our written/broadcast media are in love with this girl and just parrots everything she says, as if it's true. 

 

In the 80s environmentalists claimed that various countries would be under water by the year 2000, never happened, UN reports in the 90s said that the world will be beyond saving by 2015, never happened.

 

There's only so long these people can cry wolf and be believed.
