Well, she wasn't my first pick (that goes to 'The Whistleblower') but she's still a very good choice so good on the TIME's for their selection!
It would be hard to put the 'whistleblowers' face on Time Magazine..... the brave soul won't show their face.

So many right-leaning American members on here go on about their rights and freedoms, but when a young girl uses similar rights and freedom to highlight what she sees as destruction of the environment and damage to the climate, these same members all throw hissy fits and seem frightened and threatened by this young girl.

So it's wrong to call people who continuously defend the actions of white supremacists Nazis, but it's fine to equivocate a little girl with Asperger's that cares about the environment with genocidal dictators?
