Greta Thunberg spent the Easter holiday by traveling around Europe and meeting students who were inspired by her climate strike. She has also met, among others, the Pope in Rome and Theresa May in London.
Environmental activist Greta Thunberg also got a boot during Åkesson's summer speech. He has previously expressed dissatisfaction with her school strikes for the climate. Now he jumped at her choice of means of transport to the climate summit in the United States. - You can certainly attract media attention and be honored by sailing a boat to America, but - if you think about - how on earth would trade and the world economy survive such a change? Her actions are not an example, Åkesson says. - If we were to replace all air transport of people and goods by sailboat. The negative effects globally are incalculable, indescribable. The whole world would collapse.

It's been reported her in Australia she is nominated for the Noble Peace Prize. (and...has a good chance at winning)
Getting scarier. Shakes head.
Well, after Obama it doesn't really mean anything anymore...

I bet a million that you are wrong. Are you call yourself adult? Its frightening to read such bs because it seems you really believe in what you wrote. She is a young activist, sometimes over the top but thats pretty normal for kids that age. I never heard something hateful coming through her mouth. What about you? Are you applauding all these crazy folks posting rape fantasies and stuff like that? Is this the new normal? Attacking a kid because it cares about our planet?
cant speak for everyone, but for me if the information about her disabilities is true I have a serious problem with her parents abusing her in this way to push their agenda.
