Greta Thunberg: “Environment Doesn’t Need Any More Prizes”, Declines Award

Greta Thunberg, the teenage guru of the environmental alarmist crowd, has been awarded the 2019 Nordic Council Environment Prize. Her response to this recognition is less than gracious. She is saying thanks, but no thanks, to the council.
The Nordic countries, in her opinion (or the opinion of her adult handlers), are not stepping up as they should. She scolded the Nordic Council member countries in an Instagram post explaining why she will not be accepting the prize. Her message is that Nordic countries are all talk and not enough action on environmental issues.
“The Nordic countries have a great reputation around the world when it comes to climate and environmental issues,” she said in a written message on Instagram. “There is no lack of bragging about this. There is no lack of beautiful words. But when it comes to our actual emissions and our ecological footprints per capita — if we include our consumption, our imports as well as aviation and shipping — then it’s a whole other story.”
She also added that she is currently traveling in California preaching her message of environmental doom and gloom so she’s unable to physically accept the prize. And, being an emotionally-driven teenager, she delivered an ultimatum – she’ll not accept such a prize until Nordic countries do as she demands, or something.
Thunberg said it was a great honor to be recognized, but she will decline the award until Nordic countries take the action she sees as necessary to change the world. She said there is a large gap between what science says is necessary and the politics that run the Nordic countries, and she sees no signs of the changes required.
“Until you start to act in accordance with what the science says is needed to limit the global temperature rise below 1.5 degrees or even 2 degrees celsius, I — and Fridays For Future in Sweden — choose not to accept the Nordic Councils environmental award nor the prize money of 500,000 Swedish kronor,” she wrote.

The environment doesn’t need any more self-righteous, hysterical guardian angels either.
So get back, Guh-retta.

Not trying to be morbid, but I have a feeling this unhinged, self-absorbed kook is going to commit suicide at some point in her life. This girl has serious mental health issues!

The Environment isn’t a thing and if it was it doesn’t need help from teenage girls.

How is she paying for her 9 months in America ?
It probably offends the sensibilities of liberals, to ask who is paying her living expenses, who is feeding her, where she stays at night.
There’s a 20 something woman who travels everywhere with Greta. She’s apparently a chaperone for her. Similarly, we aren’t supposed to ask who that woman is, or who is paying her to look after Greta.
We also don’t know how she will ever get back home. She arrived in America in an allegedly carbon free yacht/sailboat, but that ship has gone back to Europe.
They say she is 16, but she looks 12 and has the mental capacity of an 8 year old. Guess we are not supposed to be able to criticize the half tard, but they thought wrong, americans find insufferable europeans worse than people from canadia
