    Teen climate change activist Greta Thunberg has endorsed Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. “I never engage in party politics. But the upcoming US elections is above and beyond all that,” Thunberg tweeted. “From a climate perspective it’s very far from enough and many of you of course supported other candidates. But, I mean…you know…damn! Just get organized and get everyone to vote #Biden”
  • Greta Thunberg calls on Merkel to be 'brave' in climate change fight

    Swedish activist Greta Thunberg on Thursday urged German Chancellor Angela Merkel to be “brave” in the fight against global warming as she sought to breathe fresh life into a climate movement overshadowed by the coronavirus pandemic. The 17-year-old traveled to Berlin to meet Europe’s most powerful leader exactly two years since she first skipped school to demand more climate action, kicking off what would become the global Fridays for Future strikes. Thunberg was joined by co-campaigners Luisa Neubauer from Germany and Belgium’s Anuna De Wever and Adelaide Charlier, all of whom wore masks as they made their way to the...

    Swedish activist Greta Thunberg is putting her money where her mouth is — saying she will donate 100,000 euros — or $114,000 — in prize money to combat the spread of the coronavirus in the Brazilian Amazon. The 17-year-old was awarded a total of $1.14 million when she received the Gulbenkian Prize for Humanity on Monday, according to CNN. Her donation will be made through the Thunberg Foundation to SOS Amazonia, which is led by Fridays for Future Brazil, a group that assists in the fight against the pandemic in indigenous territories. Another 100,000 euros will be donated to the...

    Teenage climate worrier Greta Thunberg has called on European Union leaders to condemn “police brutality escalating” in the U.S. The Swedish “how dare you?” activist pointed to footage of riot police in Buffalo, New York, shoving a 75-year-old man to the ground during Black Lives Matter protests, which she reposted on Twitter. Thunberg tweeted: “Still waiting for the EU and individual democratic nations to officially condemn the police brutality and attacks on the free press escalating the USA. For how long are we going to stand by, watch and say nothing?”

    U.S.—Several Democrat-controlled states have released new Greta Thunberg surveillance drones into the wild to lecture people who go outside. The drones include a camera to catch people going outside and a screen playing a Greta Thunberg lecture. They fly along beaches and hover over parks, shouting and chasing off people who try to have a little fun or live without fear. "How dare you! You are robbing me of my dreams and my childhood!" one drone shouted at a couple hanging out on a California beach, though they were hundreds of feet away from anyone else. "You have stolen everything...

    In a world ransacked by the coronavirus pandemic, CNN seems to think its viewers want to hear radical lefty teen climate activist Greta Thunberg’s opinion on the matter. CNN sent out a tweet May 13 announcing the news: “Former acting CDC director Richard Besser, former HHS secretary Kathleen Sebelius and activist Greta Thunberg join @AndersonCooper & @DrSanjayGupta for a live #CNNTownHall. Coronavirus - Facts and Fears, Thursday at 8 p.m. ET.” The ratio that tweet got was glorious.

    More than three decades before Greta Thunberg was born — the Swedish environmental activist on climate change — more than 20 million Americans participated in the first Earth Day on April 22, 1970. We now look back at quotes from Earth Day, Then and Now,” by Ronald Bailey, May 1, 2000 of the spectacularly wrong apocalyptic predictions from Earth Day 1970. Considering the current doomsday predictions scaremonger activists are verbalizing about global warming that will result in the demise of civilization within the next decade, many of those unscientific 1970 predictions are being reincarnated on today’s social and news...

    Greta Thunberg says she may have contracted coronavirus and has self-isolated at home with her father. The teenage climate activist said she appeared to have been infected along with her dad, actor Svante Thunberg. Both began having symptoms after a recent train tour of Europe together and so have been in isolation for the last weeks, she said.

    An Italian politician on Wednesday gave 17-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg some fatherly advice to go back to school. Pietro Fiocchi, a member of the European Parliament, said Thunberg should consider going back to school during a meeting of the Environment Council at the European Parliament in Brussels, Belgium. The Italian politician began by thanking Thunberg for her “important role in raising public awareness on this fundamental topic.” “At the same time, I would like to give an advice as a father gives an advice to a daughter — go back to school and go back to a normal...

    A new book by Greta Thunberg’s mother reveals the reality of family life during her daughter’s transformation from bullied teenager to climate icon One evening in the autumn of 2014, Svante and I sat slumped on our bathroom floor in Stockholm. It was late, the children were asleep. Everything was starting to fall apart around us. Greta was 11, had just started fifth grade, and was not doing well. She cried at night when she should be sleeping. She cried on her way to school. She cried in her classes and during her breaks, and the teachers called home almost...

    In what can only be described as another attempt to delegitimize the value of the Nobel Peace Prize, exploited teenager Greta Thunberg has been nominated again for the award. Many on the left were disappointed last year when they said Greta, who's basically famous for skipping school, was "snubbed" for the prize after being favored to win it. Two left-wing Swedish lawmakers publicly announced their nomination of the Thunberg on Monday, claiming she “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...

    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...

    In my last post, I commented on Joe Stiglitz view, heading to Davos, that billionaires and corporate leaders are anxious to pollute the air. In my wealth tax series I reported on the popular view on the Warren Sanders Saez Zucman view that corporate leaders and billionaires represent a regressive right wing political force, that must be stopped by any means including expropriation of their wealth, even if that means destroying the businesses that make them rich. My colleague Niall Ferguson reports from Davos what seems actually to be on billionaires' minds:

    President Trump on Tuesday said he didn’t know anything about Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg but called her “very angry” in an interview with The Wall Street Journal. “I don’t really know anything about her,” Trump said of Thunberg when asked about her on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. The president then called her “very angry.” Trump accused Thunberg, a 17-year-old activist who also spoke at Davos, of having an “anger management problem” after she was honored with Time’s “Person of the Year” award in December. **SNIP** Earlier Tuesday, Thunberg told the gathering of business...

    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...

    ... The truth, as one anonymous blogger aptly put it, is that your generation is unable to work up to forty hours per week without being chronically depressed and anxious. Its members cannot even decide if they want to be a boy or a girl, or both, or neither, or a “they.” They cannot eat meat without crying. I might add that your generation needs “trigger warnings” and “safe spaces” as pre-conditions for learning in school. Its members have a pathological need to be coddled and protected from the challenging realities of life. Your generation is the biggest demander and...

    In an interview with TV Republika on Christmas Eve, controversial Archbishop of Krakow Marek Jedraszewski launched an extraordinary spray at the “very dangerous phenomenon” of “ecologism”. He said that “phenomenon” is “contrary to everything that is written in the Bible” – which instructs humankind to “subdue the earth” for its own needs – and signals a “return to Engels”. But Jedraszewski saved some of his harshest criticisms for young anti-climate change campaigner Thunberg, whom the archbishop said “is becoming an oracle for all political and social forces” trying to “break with the entire Christian tradition”. The Krakow archbishop dismissed “teenage...
