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.
