    SNIP The proposal looks to make the European Union's (EU) goal of reaching net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 legally binding for all of the bloc's 27 member states. To successfully hit that target, the law proposes a mechanism to raise the EU's emissions reduction target over the next three decades, the commission said in a news release. The European Union’s executive approved the regulation during a meeting attended by Greta Thunberg, the teen climate activist who has been an outspoken advocate for more stringent action to address environmental problems. “We are acting today to make the EU the...

    Sixteen year old Gretaand of Sweden has recently been named "Person of the Year" by Time Magazine.  Here are some likely reasons why Greta was chosen as a key spokesperson for the Global Warming Movement: Appealing to Emotions is Easier than Debating Science — Making a 16-year old girl (who looks no more than 13) the spokesperson for the Climate Change cause is another way the Progressives are telling us to ignore the science and "just trust" the Paris Accord globalists. Greta can't be Criticized — or at least that's what the Progressives thought, saying to themselves: "When Trump...

    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.”

  • Israelis are using photos of Greta Thunberg to shame each other over plastic utensils

    Israelis who are concerned about a warming climate have a new tactic: using cut-out photos of the prominent teen climate activist Greta Thunberg to shame their colleagues for using plasticware. In workplaces across Tel Aviv, people are placing pictures of Thunberg, 16, in their kitchen areas next to disposable forks, knives and plates, according to Haaretz reporter Allison Kaplan Sommer. Global recognition of Thunberg grew in September when she addressed the United Nations Climate Action Summit and spoke of the dangers of the climate crisis. She sailed to the U.S. from her native Sweden instead of flying, to limit her...

    Swedish teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg says she wouldn’t want to meet with President Trump even if given the opportunity. “I don’t understand why I would do that,” Thunberg told Ellen DeGeneres in an interview that airs Friday on the “Ellen” show. “I don’t see what I could tell him that he hasn’t already heard. And I just think it would be a waste of time, really.” Thunberg was in Los Angeles Friday for a protest rally by students opposed to new fossil-fuel production. She has drawn the ire of Trump, whose administration rolled back Obama-era environmental protections and withdrew...

    Russia’s parliament has invited Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg to address young Russians concerned about the environment. The 16-year-old schoolgirl has catalyzed global school strikes and inspired Russia's nascent climate protest movement. Thunberg’s impassioned speech at the United Nations General Assembly last week sparked a fierce backlash in Russian society. “I invite you to give a speech to Russian youth in the State Duma on any date convenient for you,” lawmaker Vasily Vlasov wrote to Thunberg, according to excerpts of his letter published by the state-run RIA Novosti news agency Tuesday. Vlasov, 24, a senior member of the Duma’s Natural...
  • Greta Thunberg’s Not-So-Little Carbon Footprint

    If you’ve heard of the phrase “carbon footprint” chances are, you’ve heard of Greta Thunberg. The impassioned 16-year-old climate activist is now the subject of countless news articles, angry tweets, and not surprisingly, a whole host of uncharitable memes. A polarizing force, you either love her for her devoted climate fervor or you hate her for the public spanking that she unleashed on world leaders for not taking the impending climate doom seriously enough. She has shamed politicians and individuals and has unapologetically called on the world to panic along with her. But does Greta really buy what she’s selling?...

    On September 23, an irate 16-year-old Swedish girl told the United Nations General Assembly that her elders are failing to address the supposed dangers of climate change.  Greta Thunberg had arrived in New York the previous week, ironically, aboard a "zero-emissions" carbon-fiber racing yacht composed of the same petroleum products she seeks to ban.  The fifteen-day voyage was made in order to reduce her "carbon footprint," but those plans were foiled when it turned out that at least four overseas flights were required to ferry crew members to and from England. While it is easy to poke fun at the blatant...

    When Veruca Salt threw a hissy fit, she at least jazzed it up with a catchy song. No such luck with Greta Thunberg, the teenage Swedish climate activist and sometimes student. Greta is all frowns, all crossed arms, and she’s not here to play. Having sailed by an emissions-free yacht to New York, she delivered her now-infamous sermon for the repentant Luddites at the UN Climate Action Summit (available here). “How dare you?” she thundered repeatedly, while meandering through a sloppy mess of pseudo-statistics meant convince us that she is as capable of a quick Google search as the rest...

    Greta Thunberg, the Swedish child activist who doesn't know much, but is very certain of what she's saying, is having her heyday in the U.S., fiercely putting on her 'I won't eat those peas' face for the camers, telling the U.S. Congress they're not trying hard enough, leading a giant global protest today, and getting hailed as the child savior of the earth.Just one glitch here. Her home nation of Sweden, yes, you read right, Sweden, isn't buying the global warming claptrap anymore. Mark Morano over at Climate Depot has found a damning survey. An international opinion poll published today reveals that half of...

    Swedish activist Greta Thunberg, 16, attends a protest outside the White House on Friday. She launched the Friday school strikes last year. Since then, her notoriety has steadily grown as she speaks in clear and powerful terms about why people — particularly young people — must pay attention to our climate. Greta Thunberg led a protest at the White House Friday. But she wasn't looking to go inside: "I don't want to meet with people who don't accept the science," she says. The young Swedish activist joined a large crowd of protesters outside the White House Friday morning, calling for...

    Tuesday on CBS’s “This Morning,” 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg continued her push to stop the “climate crisis,” calling on more people to “grasp the problem.” Thunberg said “the most important thing” for people to do is “fully understand the climate and ecological crisis” to know what to do help solve the problem. “What I want people to do now is to become aware of the crisis that is here,” Thunberg explained. “I tell the world leaders when I speak to them and I tell them how it is … I tell them the science, how it looks.” She later...
