[Music] [Chanting] Greta! Greta!
Greta! Greta! For way too long, the politicians
and the people in power have gotten away with
not doing anything to fight the climate crisis. But we will make sure
that they will not get away with it any longer. And we are striking because
we have done our homework and they have not. Some say that we are fighting
for our future but we are not fighting
for our future, we are fighting for
everyone’s future and we will not stop
until we are done. [Cheering] We need to focus every inch
of our being on climate change because, if we fail to do so,
then all our achievements and progress have been
for nothing. And if you still say that we are
“wasting valuable lesson time”, then let me remind you that our
political leaders have wasted decades through denial
and inaction. If I were in charge, I would tell
the truth [about] the emergency of the situation and what we need
to do and what we need to do to try to save what can be saved
because most people I talk to they don’t have even the basic
knowledge about the climate crisis. They don’t know what
the Keeling Curve is, they don’t know what
the Albedo effect is and that is absurd that
people don’t know these things.

    This kid has seemingly popped into the limelight from nowhere.
    Or has Greta’s celebrity status less to do with chance and more to do with a carefully orchestrated public relations campaign?

    I would like to see her go to china ?? The number one polluter in the world! China does not enforce its pollution laws! China has so much pollution. That that massive toxic cloud hits the west coast of the United States nearly every day!

    0:11 pretty ironic for global warming activist to be in winter coat wearing knit gloves and cap. What a scam.

    Ok Guardian… why add odd music to your videos? Might as well put sexy saxophone or other inappropriate audio to the next one of these because you're almost to that level anyway.

    Students tend to bandwagon jump. This bunch jump any bandwagon to be popular at school. The majority don't know why they are there. Selfies come first.

    The most underappreciated thing about her is that she actually looks Swedish. The diversity quota team must have let this one slip through.

    So sick to use children to promote your political agenda.

  • Aes Cel Post author

    So, a cocky kid telling adults they are uneducated. What next?…dragging adults into the street to be whipped and re-educated? This whole movement is orchestrated by adults with an agenda. Agenda 21.

    Amazing! In my youth I climbed many mountains. Eventual I fell and hurt myself in Switzerland. Now I read that the last mountain I climbed is losing the permafrost and glaciers and is splitting and falling on the village below. This hurts my soul that I will never see the village of my ancestors as it was and never see the mountains as I once did. Thank you! We must hold those who are destroying the planet accountable for change.

    This hate speech by people using the internet as their toilet is also a very bad pollution. If they treat the earth as they treat the social environment it becomes clear that this movement greta is initiating is about environmental health on many levels. Thank you Greta for being so open and honest. I know that most people just open up seeing and hearing you. These people cheating are just an expression of the lack of responsibility and trust in our society.
    I am looking forward to the 15th of march. I will be there with my children demonstrating for a change in action and in consciousness.
    Let us be the change we are looking for. Love to everyone and to Pachamama.
    Thank you so much for your conscious being and acting.

    She's a kid with special needs. It's disgusting how they pulled her from the streets to do their anti West agenda.

    Our schools should not be being used as a political platform, I urge the internal security services to arrest those responsible and fine them with the amount of hours lost to our children's education.

    You kids are too young to be stooges, but will maintain your status as dupes for now. You know nothing about science, money, or how governments work. You don't know that you don't know.  And, you don't know when you are being used. Your best thinking is years in the future. The earth is part of a system of conducted, convecting  and radiated heat altered at just the right times by periodic earth rotation and tilted on axis, and has been put in place by a force much smarter than you are. Your computer models really mean nothing in the real world of how things work, but rather how the modeler wants them to work. Carbon dioxide is not a factor. The scientific method requires that your study of temperature change should have started with the sun, since it provides almost 100 percent of radiant heat on earth. That the climate change issue is split left and right is strong evidence that the scientific method, even the null hypothesis does not apply here. But, much like NIST did not inspect WTC7 for being rigged with explosives and coming down in free fall, the climate scientists ignore any cause for insignificant temperature variance other than by man. And if you speak English you better study 9/11 and find out how planes crashing into buildings cause them to fall by controlled demolition, and how that is connected to insurance policies. Now get back to school.

    Greta chose a plant based lifestyle. Following her example also means changing the way we eat and buy. We need to stop eating meat, fish, dairy and eggs. We need to boycott products derived from animals if we are going to stop climate change.

    the Guardian is the worst enemy of every climate activist!!!

    Alan Rusbridger is a puppet of the Gates foundation… if sombody 'd tell me the good ol' Guardian crowned Bill Gates king of the (activist) world I'd say: get out of here!!! what might have sounded like an april fools joke gone bad is the sad truth, plz observe it by yourself on /watch?v=8Hj35q9y6W4

    the notorious Gates foundation is by all means then dangerous and who ever gives voice to Bill Gates doubly so… Bill Gates is deeply and diretctly intertweened with the neoliberal power elites from DAVOS and who ever gives voice to Bill Gates gives voice to DAVOS!!!

    long life Greta Thunberg.

    I've done my homework, ma'am, and I can tell you this: Kinda hard to believe you guys when the media, which promotes it, LIES, 24/7. Not to mention the scientists, a great deal of them were proven false or they just wanted attention.
    Also, your speech at COP24 wasn't "inspirational". You insulted people, and inflated your ego, without providing a solution.

    Its pathetic that people will get their guidance from a teenage girl who has yet to finish school rather than listen to scientists that understand the climate model projections are remarkably discordant from the observed [email protected]

    I am reminded of the story of Nongqause. Her deluded dreams caused the demise of the Xhosa people in South Africa. "Kill your cattle, every beast in the Kraal. Empty your grain baskets and burn every field." 50 000 Xhosa died in the national suicide. @t

    National Suicide … destroy the basis of our economy … this is what comes of listening to deluded children.

    I'm not going to listen to a 16 year old tell me what is wrong with the climate, is there really a climate problem or is the people behind it making it all up, who knows what they are doing or where they are getting their info from.

  • El Chingon Post author

    The only people who have stolen her dreams and childhood are the leftists using her as a pawn for their ideological agendas, and her parents, who allowed this to happen to her. And BTW, her parents are both theater people. And this is what this is: a scripted alarmist drama starring a child actor. The only people that buy into this fictional narrative are the already-programmed liberal-leftist sheep. And the leftist ideologues behind the curtain are all laughing their hypocritical asses off.

  • Chris Haunton Post author

    So they didn't go to school because of climate change? If it's that big of an issue….wouldn't u think they would be studying twice as hard to fix this imaginary problem instead of hanging out with a mentally ill 16 girl with no qualifications from another country.
