In this passionate call to action, 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg explains why, in August 2018, she walked out of school and organized a strike to raise awareness of global warming, protesting outside the Swedish parliament and grabbing the world's attention. "The climate crisis has already been solved. We already have all the facts and solutions," Thunberg says. "All we have to do is to wake up and change."

What a wonderfully groomed climate freak

We mine sand from the oceans at a rate of 260 .000.000 a day
I would know I own one of these companies
The ocean is not rising the land is sinking because of it and no one is interested because the are all trying to stop climate change
Normal people buy the basic programming they were sold on TV, Radio and the biggest marketing of them all internet
This little girl is just following her programming and she is capable of so much more if she created instead of regurgitate

Or we’ll

It is immoral to use a mentally compromised 16 year old child for AGW propaganda. I wonder who or what is behind this girl. Did she read thousands and thousands of scientific papers? All she knows and all she says, was told to her by adults (with a specific agenda).
Norman Stewart
It's nauseating to see a child being exploited for political ends. The people who fed her this propaganda should be ashamed of themselves.

We autists are capable of so much. We dont sell fairytales. We tell it like it is. Greta is not the hope of the future. She is calling us to help all of us including herself to be the action that brings hope to the future. When you believe the end us coming what will you do to change it.

Especially
no lies about the climate. Colder record France not so cold in 50 years. The
winter sports areas in Austria are opening the slopes again. Record amount of
snow and cold in America.





The
glaciers in Greenland have been growing at 20 meters per year for 3 years. In
recent years, the water in the Disko Bay has become a lot cooler, which has
brought the melting process to an abrupt end. 
Rare May Storm Brings Record-Breaking Rain, Snow in california.





Co2
therefore has nothing to do with it. Cold record and failed harvest in Russia.
There are also major problems in Russia. Due to the persistent bitter cold -
the worst in more than 140 years in April - the wheat harvest failed. The
expectation is that the weather will not improve much for the time being.





Astronomers
and other independent scientists have been predicting a new mini ice age for
years, which could start around 2020. Periods of warming and cooling are
therefore not caused by CO2, but almost exclusively by the sun, which has been
sending signals for some time that we must indeed prepare for a cooling period
that will last for decades (a 'solar minimum' that has already begun) .

Congratulations to all adults around Greta. You´ve been really successful so far. Have you considered the next step when Greta has fullfilled her part? What will happen to her?
Lenny Boyz
I heard that she flew on plane to go to London to protest about climate change flying in a plane is changing the climate

Why does gov. Suppress magnetic energy. Government is at fault. Politics and money. Look for your answers on top of the pyramid.

Ok you can clearly tell she has something telling her what to say.

It happens to all of us: you unsubscribe from an unwanted marketing email, and a few days later another message from the same company pops up in your inbox. Comedian James Veitch turned this frustration into whimsy when a local supermarket refused to take no for an answer. Hijinks ensued.
