Well, i suppose we could argue that they do but only in a token manner.
Probably because they are a shower of bastards really.
Bigger fish to fry and profits to be accumulated i suppose.
Ive done what i wanted to in life, or at least a modicum of such, whats you claim to fame
If you check out her photos young Greta is being escorted around the country by her handler – far left activist Luisa-Marie Neubauer, a 23-year-old German climate protection activist and a member of "ONE Foundation" managed by BONO, Bill Gates and George Soros.

Greta Thunberg is truly inspirational, her vigilance and vigor in this is a sight to behold. I was taken back even more when I read that she was on the autism spectrum with Asperger's. She has tremendous focus and when she puts her mind to something she just keeps going.
This all started when she read the 150 page, or something like that, scientific report on global outlook and projections. This affected her greatly and she took her future seriously, not sleeping or eating for a while, until she resolved herself to do something about it. And I think she's making a greater change than she could have even hoped for.
It's a true David and Goliath story unraveling, a kid with autism against the corporate giants.

She has a younger sister and they both have problems
After years of depression, eating disorders, and anxiety attacks, she finally receives a medical diagnosis: Asperger’s syndrome, high-functioning autism, and OCD. She also suffers from selective mutism—which explains why she sometimes can’t speak to anyone outside her closest family. When she wants to tell a climate researcher that she plans a school strike on behalf of the environment, she speaks through her father.
And yet she can talk and give speaches to an audience?
And her sister....
Greta is not alone in her mental suffering, according to the book. Her sister Beata, who was 12 when the book was written, lives with ADHD, Asperger’s syndrome, and OCD. She is prone to sudden outbursts of anger, during which she screams obscenities at her mother. What would normally be a 10-minute walk to dance class takes almost an hour because Beata insists on walking with her left foot in front, refuses to step on certain parts of the sidewalk, and demands that her mother walk the same way
Someone??? is pushing an agenda!!

One thing is certain... Democrats are just as predictable as we said they'd be. We all knew they'd throw this girl in front of them so they could do all the name calling and pointing and crying over how you can talk about "a little child with Asperger Syndrome" while hiding behind her leg and sticking their tongue out at us.

And that's part of the problem, I have no issue trying to treat the planet better so we can preserve things for the future.
I have no issue getting off fossil fuels when technology supports it.
I have a problem with people (not you) implying carbon credits is an answer, I have a problem with no real plan to ween off fossil fuels folks seem to want to flip a switch and make it go away but the real world doesn't work that way.
we have no viable plan being put forward to move away from fossil fuels, clean up our water, and preserve our natural areas.
This is cogent at least.
I surmise then that in your mind (and a lot of others here) the best solution is just to do nothing?

Still wondering why they don't teach critical thinking in schools ?
If they did that where would they get their 'little parrots' from?

Wait..so this brave and intelligent young girl has the right to lecture us about climate change policies, yet gets a pass because she, and her parents, apparently don't have the wherewithal to look into T-shirts they were given to wear in the lead up to her big speech? Really?
