    “Sixteen-year-old activist Greta Thunberg has quickly risen to prominence with her clarion call for climate action and Time's naming her its 2019 Person of the Year this week.” (NPR, 12/12) “So ridiculous. Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill!” (President Trump tweet 12/12)Interestingly, Greta Thunberg has recently become a darling of the media in Stalinist Cuba, a  regime whose founders craved a pretty dramatic form of “climate change.” And speaking of ridiculous Time magazine bestowing honors on people who desperately needed to chill:The publication also honored...

    ROME - On Thursday top Vatican officials hailed Swedish teen Greta Thunberg, recently named TIME Magazine’s “Person of the Year” for her environmental advocacy, as a “great witness” of Church teaching on care for creation and the human person. Speaking to reporters at the Dec. 12 publication of Pope Francis’s message for the 2020 World Day of Peace, celebrated on Jan. 1 each year, Cardinal Peter Turkson, prefect of the Vatican office for Integral Human Development, called Thunberg “a great witness to what the Church teaches on the care of the environment and the care of the person.” “What is...

    The two teens are different, the first lady noted through a spokesperson. “He is a 13-year-old who wants and deserves privacy,” Melania’s spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, said of Barron in an emailed statement on Friday — the day after Trump lashed out at Thunberg because Time magazine had named her “Person of the Year.” Thunberg, meanwhile, is a public person “who travels the globe giving speeches.”

    Melania Trump is going on the road to promote her “Be Best” campaign to help children. The first lady planned to advocate for her campaign Tuesday in Tennessee during a visit to Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt in Nashville on what will be her first domestic trip to highlight the initiative. Mrs. Trump was participating in a discussion about babies who are born dependent on drugs, tour a neonatal intensive care unit and visit with patients. She has done little personally to publicize the campaign around the country since she unveiled it at the White House in May....

    On Thursday morning, the President of the United States sent a tweet to his 60+ million followers blasting a 16-year-old girl with Asperger's syndrome who has rallied efforts at fighting climate change around the globe. "Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend!" Trump wrote of teenage climate crisis activist Greta Thunberg. "Chill Greta, Chill!" This isn't the first time Trump has gone after Thunberg. "She seems like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future," Trump sarcastically tweeted following Thunberg's speech in front...

    Who better than a finger-wagging teen bereft of accomplishment, or any comprehension of basic economics or history, to be Time magazine’s Person of the Year in 2019? Greta Thunberg’s canonization is a perfect expression of media activism in a deeply unserious time. Has there ever been a less consequential person picked to be Person of the Year? I doubt it. I mean, Wallis Simpson, 1936’s Person of the Year, got King Edward VIII to abdicate the throne. Thunberg can’t even get you to abdicate your air-conditioning. These days we celebrate vacuous fire and brimstone. “Greta Thunberg”—the idea, not the girl—is...

    Democrat presidential candidate Julián Castro argued Thursday that President Donald Trump mocking teenage climate change activist Greta Thunberg’s TIME magazine “Person of the Year” cover makes it clear he is “unfit for office.” “The president of the United States is mocking a 16-year-old on Twitter,” Castro, who previously served as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), wrote on Twitter in response to the president’s tweet. “It’s clear why one of them is the Person of the Year and the other is unfit for office.”

    Donald Trump Jr. blasted Time on Twitter for choosing teen climate activist Greta Thunberg as Person of the Year. Trump Jr. suggested the pro-democracy protesters who have rocked Hong Kong should have been given the title instead. "Time leaves out the Hong Kong Protesters fighting for their lives and freedoms to push a teen being used as a marketing gimmick," he tweeted. "How dare you?" The comment, "How dare you?" is seemingly another jab at Thunberg. The teen famously asked world leaders that same question during an emotional speech at the United Nations in New York City in September. Edward...

    I use a lot of dangerous drugs. Well, not me personally, but on my patients. Of course, I use dangerous drugs only when the disease I’m treating is more dangerous than the drug. In diseases that are not life-threatening, naturally I avoid dangerous drugs and try to stick with safer therapies. Chemotherapy drugs can save your life, but they can also have significant side effects. Side effects that you would not tolerate if you were treating a sinus infection. But if you have cancer, and you’re trying to avoid dying, it may make sense to take a chance on side...

    Greta Thunberg unloaded on the world in an op-ed published on Friday, claiming that fossil fuels “are literally” killing mankind, and that they are a threat to “our very existence” as she said that her “climate crisis” agenda is not just about the environment, but about fighting the “colonial, racist, and patriarchal systems of oppression.” In an op-ed published in Project Syndicate, Thunberg and two other far-left climate activists attacked world leaders over their pro-capitalist policies, writing that “the politicians let the profiteers continue to exploit our planet’s resources and destroy its ecosystems in a quest for quick cash that...

    Jeremy Clarkson, a British broadcaster, columnist, and co-host of The Grand Tour, a popular motoring program on Amazon Prime Video, denounced climate change activist Greta Thunberg, calling her an "idiot" and blaming her for contributing to the loss of interest in cars by young people. “Everyone I know under 25 isn’t the slightest bit interested in cars," Clarkson told The Sun, and "Greta Thunberg has killed the car show." “They’re taught at school, before they say ‘Mummy and Daddy’, that cars are evil, and it’s in their heads," said Clarkson.

    “How dare you?

It all sounds so scary. But I’ve been a consumer reporter for years, and I’ve covered so many scares: plague, famine, overpopulation, SARS, West Nile virus, bird flu, radiation from cellphones, flesh-eating bacteria, killer bees, etc. The list of terrible things that were going to get us is very long. Yet we live longer than ever. Now I’m told global warming is...
