Greta Thunberg, a 16-year-old girl from Sweden whose activism for climate change sparked demonstrations across Europe, called the idea of meeting with President Trump a “waste” as she prepares to sail for the U.S. later this month.

When asked during a brief interview with CBS News released Tuesday about whether she would entertain the idea of meeting with Trump, the activist asked: “Why should I waste time talking to him when he, of course, is not going to listen to me?”

“How would you rate the United States climate change efforts?” the interviewer also asked Thunberg.

“Not very high,” Thunberg said, citing the country’s rising emissions.

Of course Greta is correct in saying that meeting with Trump would be a waste of time, but hopefully she will find some presidential candidates on the Democratic side who would be happy to hear her message, and anxious to help her to wave the planet. 

I am sitting in the downstairs of my house typing this early in the morning and it is already almost 70 degrees outside. 

That is not fucking normal up here.

    “It would show great weakness if Israel allowed Rep. Omar and Rep. Tlaib to visit,” the president wrote on Twitter.
    “They hate Israel & all Jewish people, & there is nothing that can be said or done to change their minds. Minnesota and Michigan will have a hard time putting them back in office. They are a disgrace!”

    Thunberg refuses to fly because of the heavy carbon footprint of air travel; she’s instead making her ocean voyage aboard the Malizia II, a 60-foot racing yacht covered in solar panels. Thunberg hopes to be in New York in time for the U.N. Climate Action Summit on September 23, before moving on to South America for more U.N. climate talks in Santiago, Chile, in December. Just before setting sail, Thunberg dismissed climate deniers who’ve launched an online campaign seeking to discredit her activism.

    On Wednesday, Mr Banks referred to Ms Thunberg’s sea voyage across the Atlantic and tweeted: “Freak yachting accidents do happen in August…”
    Ms Thunberg, who chooses not to fly, is sailing from the UK to attend UN climate summits in New York and Chile.
    Ms Lucas said she reported his comment, while Mr Banks said it was a joke.
    “Arron Banks’ vile tweet about @GretaThunberg makes me sick to the stomach,” Ms Lucas wrote on Twitter on Thursday morning.
    “I have made a formal complaint to Twitter.”

    Epstein’s ghost must be upset – an underage girl he missed out on. As long as she doesn’t look like a boy she should be safe-ish at the church.

    If Iran is so dangerous then why doesn’t the US government encourage Americans to buy guns to protect themselves?

    why are you publishing so many troll comments today, Gryphen?

    I only came by to comment that the Edinburgh school authorities have suggested they give the students one day per year to protest about the climate. You can imagine how well the Scottish student body took that.

    The grown men of Australia’s Trumpist government like to attack the protesting children individually just like they learned from the president of Australia, Donald Trump- no offers of one day per year, they’d rather bring back cane, the perverts.

    Drumpf apparently has had conversations with ? claiming he wants America to buy Greenland for krissakes. Correctional officer apparently drove pickup i9nto a crowd of Jewish ICE protesters. Who hates Jews? This guy isn’t a Muslim congresswoman.
