Here is the description for the series, which comes from the studio’s science unit. “The series will follow Greta’s international crusade, which takes her to the front line of climate change in some of the most extraordinary places on earth, as she explores what actions could be taken to limit climate change and the damage it causes." "As she travels Greta meets not...

    The German city Bochum branch of the student ecology movement Fridays for Future formed by the Swedish teenage environmental activist Greta Thungberg and an organization devoted to fighting Nazism kicked the pro-BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) Marxist-Leninist Party in Germany out of their alliances due to the party's misconduct, including allegedly tearing down a placard against antisemitism. The ouster of the party that defends the terrorist organization the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine took place in late January and early February. The student ecology organization Fridays for Future, which was started by Thungberg in 2018, claimed that the Marxist-Leninists...

    Teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg has been nominated for the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize by two Swedish lawmakers, a report said on Monday. Jens Holm and Hakan Svenneling, members of Sweden’s Left Party, said the 17-year-old Thunberg “has worked hard to make politicians open their eyes to the climate crisis.” Her work toward “reducing our emissions and complying with the Paris Agreement is therefore also an act of making peace,” they said. The Paris accord, from which President Trump withdrew in June 2017, seeks to combat the rise in global temperatures by reducing emissions. Thunberg, who has encouraged students to...

    Climate activist Greta Thunberg has applied to trademark her name and her movement Fridays for Future to prevent them from being misused for commercial reasons, she announced Wednesday. Thunberg said in an Instagram post that she and the movement “are constantly being used for commercial purposes without any consent whatsoever” for marketing, selling products and collecting money. “This action is to protect the movement and its activities,” she wrote, adding that, “I assure you, I and the other school strikers have absolutely no interests in trademarks. But unfortunately it needs to be done.” She added that the movement belongs to...

    Swedish climate worrier Greta Thunberg held a press conference in Davos, Switzerland, on Friday and complained the climate movement’s demands (on fossil fuel divestment) have been “completely ignored” this week by attendees at the World Economic Forum. Asked for her impressions of the event, a clearly underwhelmed Thunberg was to the point, saying “We had a few demands (coming into the World Economic Forum). Of course these demands have been completely ignored. We expected nothing less,” She cautioned that while world does not treat, “this crisis as a crisis, and as long as the facts are ignored, we will not...

    Yesterday, Karen wrote about the contrast between the statements made by President Trump and Greta Thunberg at the World Economic Forum in Davos. The NY Times has published Thunberg’s full remarks at the forum and they are pretty striking. In addition to her usual tone of condescension toward world leaders, Thunberg explained that the only solution was to completely abandon fossil fuels immediately. She doesn’t want to talk about “net zero” emissions she wants to see “real zero” right now. One year ago I came to Davos and told you that our house is on fire. I said I...

    Historian Niall Ferguson has slammed Greta Thunberg’s climate change hypocrisy at Davos, asking why “I don’t see her in Beijing or Delhi.” Teenage environmentalist Thunberg gave another hysterical speech at the global confab yesterday in which she claimed, “Our house is still on fire. Your inaction is fueling the flames by the hour. We are still telling you to panic, and to act as if you loved your children above all else.” “We don’t want these things done in 2050, 2030, or even 2021,” Thunberg said. “We want this done now.” Ferguson, Senior Fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, questioned...

    The annual World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, once again hosted young climate activists spewing their ignorance. Their leader, Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year” teenage eco-warrior Greta Thunberg shouted that “our house is on fire”. Noticeably absent from Ms. Thunburg’s Davos screed was any country other than America. Sure, she blasted America from withdrawing from the Gospel of the Paris Climate Accord. But there was no mention of the world’s largest polluter of poisonous Sulphur Dioxide: China, India, and Russia. China emits more carbon dioxide than the US and the EU combined. China and India are also world leaders...

    It's a new decade,* so it's time for a new round of panic about the weather killing us all. Swedish child-priestess and chronic truant Greta Thunberg is at the 2020 World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, this week, because that's where the spotlight is. And she's scolding all the grown-ups for not doing what she wants when she wants it, because Veruca Salt wasn't fictional.I was scared of the Boogeyman when I was little too. I just didn't have crowds of adults applauding my cries of fear: Watch Greta Thunberg admonish world leaders for doing "basically nothing" to reduce...

    Left-wing activist David Hogg is trying to work his way back into the spotlight, but changing his look isn’t earning him the kind of recognition he was thinking about. While most people use the beginning of a new year to make some changes in their lives, Hogg’s attempt at a “new year, new me” tweet was panned by a fair few of the 2.5K comments as of this publishing.

    On Thursday, a Facebook glitch revealed who’s posting on climate change alarmist Greta Thunberg’s Facebook page: her father Svantes Thunberg and “Climate Crisis activist” Adarsh Prathap. “[A] bug that was live from Thursday evening until Friday morning allowed anyone to easily reveal the accounts running a Page, essentially doxing anyone who posted to one,” Wired reported Friday. “We quickly fixed an issue where someone could see who edited or published a post on behalf of a Page when looking at its edit history,” Facebook responded to the controversy in a statement. “We are grateful to the security researcher who alerted...

    Climate change activist Greta Thunberg issued a response to singer Meat Loaf after the Dallas rocker called her "brainwashed" in an interview this weekend. "It’s not about Meatloaf," tweeted the Swedish teenager. "It’s not about me. It’s not about what some people call me. It’s not about left or right." Meat Leaf, 72, claimed Thunberg, 17, had been "brainwashed into thinking that there is climate change, and there isn’t.” She has traveled the planet over the past year to promote her beliefs and came in second place for 2019's Nobel Peace Prize awards, losing to Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed....

    “I’m not the kind of person who celebrates birthdays,” Greta Thunberg said as she turned 17 on Friday, marking the occasion in inimitable style - with a seven-hour hour protest outside the Swedish parliament. The climate activist braved winter conditions in her native Stockholm to continue the weekly Friday School Strike for the Climate campaign that helped catapult her to international fame. “I stand here striking from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. as usual ... then I’ll go home,” Thunberg, Time magazine’s Person of the Year for 2019, told Reuters.

    Former NFL player Colin Kaepernick on Saturday accused the United States of targeting minorities "at home and abroad," just days after the administration ordered a drone strike that killed Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani. "There is nothing new about American terrorist attacks against Black and Brown people for the expansion of American imperialism," he tweeted. In a separate tweet, Kaepernick decried "American imperialism" and its "policing and plundering of the nonwhite world." "America has always sanctioned and besieged Black and Brown bodies both at home and abroad," he wrote. "America militarism is the weapon wielded by American imperialism, to enforce its...

She is passionate about what she believes; she is only a young girl and she is speaking prophetically to the world and what do we do? We attack her. We attack her message.”“In fact, there are a...

    There are two primary reasons it is so difficult, if not impossible, to define leftism. One is that it ultimately stands for chaos: -- Open borders. -- "Nonbinary" genders. -- Nonsensical and scatological "art." -- "Music" without tonality, melody or harmony. -- Drag Queen Story Hour for 5-year-olds. -- Rejection of the concept of better or worse civilizations. -- Rejection of the concept of better or worse art. -- Removal of Shakespeare's picture from a university English department because he was a white male. -- The end of all use of fossil fuels -- even in transportation (as per the...

    Greta Thunberg’s father said in a new interview that the 16-year-old climate activist from Sweden has become much happier after taking up the environmental cause — but that he worries about all the “hate” she faces. Actor-turned-producer Svante Thunberg, 50, told the BBC that he and Greta’s mom, opera singer Malena Ernman, at first objected to their shy daughter becoming an eco-warrior. “Obviously, we thought it was a bad idea, putting herself out there with all the hate on social media,” he said about Greta, who was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome — a form of autism — at age 12.
