Greta scares Grown men

Greta Thunberg. Remember her name. This 16 year-old has done more for the cause of combating climate change in the space of a month than world leaders and big businesses combined. In the process, she’s come under fire from bitter, angry old white dudes, who are threatened by her strength and conviction. She’s had a lot of criticism, but her statement (see the above link) is ample proof that she will not be bullied.

We’re at a tipping point, facing a very real climate crisis, something the vast majority of the world’s scientists agree is happening, and yet, rather than face these problems, people like Piers Morgan and Donald Trump, among others, show their sexism (not to mention a huge misunderstanding of mental illness) via their comments on Twitter and beyond. Despite some high profile attacks, Greta has not been unnerved; she forges on, with a cause we should all get behind.

  1. She is great, a true “prophetess” of our times. Shame that many conservative Monotheists are against her, blind towards the true issues of 21st century. We are waiting for Muslim Greta Thunbergs or Jacinda Arderns.

      1. Yes, definitely. My point is the “religious” focus has not arrived there. Especially the fundamentalist agenda is mostly reactionary, anti-humanist and not helpful.

  2. My mum and I were just talking about her. We find it kind of ironic that they accuse the “Lefites” of bullying Greta. Because we feel like we have to stand up for her, not because we don’t think she can handle herself. But because you’ve got all these middle age men, a lot of them, old enough to be her Grandfather. Actually bullying her. I’m not sure we’d honestly even know about her if it wasn’t for the Right and their constant attacks on her.
