Trump mocked this young woman on Twitter the other day after fleeing the UN before she had the chance to confront him. 

I think that is a pretty fair indication that she scares him to death.

    The United States was not invited to the climate summit due to its level of greenhouse gas emissions, but Trump crashed the meeting for 10 to 15 minutes.

      These long-form essays show Klein at her most prophetic and philosophical, investigating the climate crisis not only as a profound political challenge but as a spiritual and imaginative one, as well. Delving into topics ranging from the clash between ecological time and our culture of “perpetual now,” to the soaring history of humans changing and evolving rapidly in the face of grave threats, to rising white supremacy and fortressed borders as a form of “climate barbarism,” this is a rousing call to action for a planet on the brink.

    Laura Ingraham compared 16-year-old climate change activist Greta Thunberg to the dangerous religious cult members in Stephen King’s horror tale, “Children of the Corn.”
    “Does anyone else find that chilling?” – “I can’t wait for Stephen King’s sequel, ‘Children of the Climate,’” Ingraham said as the clip played.
    the host’s comparison of the climate change activist to homicidal cult members.

    The network did issue an apology, however, for remarks made on the air by the Daily Wire’s Michael Knowles, who called Thunberg a “mentally ill Swedish child” during his appearance on a different Fox News program Monday evening. “

    “But if they actually do something in the way that they have been doing in this era, then politicians have to sit up and take notice.”
    The broadcaster appeared to approve of the tactics employed by protesters, who have taken to blocking roads in many places.
    “And you can say, ‘It gets you nowhere, just stopping the traffic’. But it gets you notice. People listen to what you say. And that you’re important,”

    “Australia’s conservative prime minister, Scott Morrison, is notably absent from this week’s climate summit. Despite being in the US anyway to dine with President Donald Trump at the White House, Morrison declined to attend the summit because his government has no new climate commitments to announce.”

    “I would never have predicted or believed that this was going to happen someday. And so fast, only in 15 months,” Thunberg told the AP. “I can’t wait to see the official numbers come in. It will be magnificent.” – “New York City mayor Bill de Blasio estimated 60,000 people marching through the streets of Lower Manhattan. Other estimates were as high as 250,000 people.”

    Attacks on Greta Thunberg Come from a Coordinated Network of Climate Change Deniers
    Protect Greta at all costs.

    “Banks’ tweet was one of the most high-profile. He is among the most prominent funders of Brexit, with long-standing ties to the UK Independence Party and its former leader Nigel Farage. UKIP’s politician, Neil Hamilton, was one of the first to be called out for posting what was perceived by many as a bullying tweet directed at Greta, who is 16 years old.

    Farage has now set up a new outfit, the Brexit Party, also bankrolled by Banks. The party has 29 members in the European Parliament, many of them climate science deniers, thanks to winning 30 percent of the vote in May’s elections.

    The Koch network’s influence isn’t confined to the U.S. media. One of the most vicious attacks on the teenage climate activist has come from Brendan O’Neill, editor of the Koch-funded website Spiked. He wrote of Greta:

    “This poor young woman increasingly looks and sounds like a cult member. The monotone voice. The look of apocalyptic dread in her eyes. The explicit talk of the coming great ‘fire’ that will punish us for our eco-sins. There is something chilling and positively pre-modern about Ms Thunberg.””

      The Koch family (one of the infamous brothers is now dead) are rich hippocrits. All the years they have been climate change deniers boosting the use of oil, they have been also investing in alternative energy – huge wind farms and vast fields of solar panels. They, as usually with billionaires, want to have their climate cake and eat it too. While the rest of the planet roasts or drowns.
