Haha. When is this religious cult going to take their protest to Tiananmen Square? I'm sure Comrade Xi will welcome their denunciations of the world's largest emitter of greenhouse gases, which is building hundreds of new coal plants.

Experts Agree Restructuring World Economy Best Way to Treat Child's Anxiety

Today, 16-year-old Swedish activist Greta Thunberg spoke at the U.N. Climate Summit, scolding world leaders for their inaction and accusing them of "Stealing the dreams of [her] childhood." After the speech, experts agreed that the best way to treat this child's anxiety would be to completely restructure of the world economy.

While it may be technologically unfeasible, potentially lead to the impoverishment of billions, and require unprecedented control of civilian populations, they can see no other way to get this young girl to calm down.

"She is extremely upset," said one member of the U.N. General Assembly, "And as the adults, we need to do everything in our power to weaponize her distress and re-make the world according to her wishes."

"16-year-olds don't know a lot about how the world works," said another Assembly Member with a chuckle, "But who am I to speak? I'm just doing what she says!"

After the Climate Summit, the U.N. passed a near-unanimous resolution to validate Thunberg's "truth" and a pre-emptive condemnation of anyone who asks any questions.

Wonder why the did not site two of the worst: China and Russia.... Oh, that's right, they are afraid of them.

Greta's refusal to implicate Russia clearly illustrates her allegiance to Putin. Furthermore, sources close to the filing of the lawsuit have suggested that Thunberg and Putin had at least one secret meeting (possibly two) prior to the lawsuit's filing. This is going to be huge.

I didn't want to be the first to say this, but the walls are closing in on Greta.

Then she'll claim people are picking on her because she's a child.

I want to extol her ability to filter out the "Are You Sure?" pop-ups that line her path.

Or it is because, as stated in the article, China and Russia are not signatories of the "Convention on the Rights of the Child", which is the basis under which they are filing this lawsuit.

And I am not surprised to see #4 and #5 piling on top of your ignorance.

But, don't let "facts" or "reality" get in the way of your narrative. It has never stopped Republicans in the past.

It's amazing to see five grown men so angry at a little girl.

Really speaks volumes about who you are.

That's not stopping her from taking her crusade to Beijing. When is she going?

At least they didn't say she has a very punchable face. Nor have they quipped about tossing her into a wood-chipper or called for her parents to be fired and become unemployable.

That actually doesn't change anything.

right. She's not here to buy something shiny or throw money into a vault or buy a friend and they don't like her for it.

Which five men are you talking about? It's not mentioned in the linked article.

Who's angry at a little girl?

You haven't been a real good judge of anything since Trump became president.

The way Republicans are going after this 16 year old girl, you'd think she was a 14 year old girl.

Greta Thunberg.

You should pay attention to which threads you're posting in.

This makes even less sense. Who is the little girl Greta is angry with? I thought she was angry with five different countries.

She's a vegan.

There is nothing worse than a vegan scorned.

This is not about the environment. It's about parents pimping their kids out to make a buck.

en.wikipedia.org

"The UN General Assembly adopted the Convention and opened it for signature on 20 November 1989 (the 30th anniversary of its Declaration of the Rights of the Child).[6] It came into force on 2 September 1990, after it was ratified by the required number of nations. Currently, 196 countries are party to it,[1] including every member of the United Nations except the United States."

Another scientist speaks out, and he's older and more experienced than Thunberg.

"Actor Harrison Ford demands the United Nations take immediate action on climate change, 'Our house is on fire, and we only have one house'"

Harrison Ford is definitely making a difference.

"I'm so passionate about flying, I often fly up the coast for a cheeseburger,' he said in 2010."

ok, so you're NOT calling Harrison Ford a hypocrite for his carbon footprint from flying?

then what is it you're saying. do you even know anymore?
