Greta Thunberg whines that school strikes have achieved nothing

Then why doesn’t she get her butt back into school?

Better yet, start protesting in China. I triple-dog-dare her to do that.

From The Guardian: The global wave of school strikes for the climate over the past year has “achieved nothing” because greenhouse gas emissions have continued to rise, Greta Thunberg has told activists at UN climate talks in Madrid.

Thousands of young people were expected to gather at the UN climate conference and in the streets of the Spanish capital on Friday to protest against the lack of progress in tackling the climate emergency, as officials from more than 190 countries wrangled over the niceties of wording in documents related to the Paris accord.

In the four years since the landmark agreement was signed, greenhouse gas emissions have risen by 4% and the talks this year are not expected to produce new commitments on carbon from the world’s biggest emitters.

Thunberg, whose solo protest in Sweden in 2017 has since snowballed into a global movement, spoke at a press conference before a march through the centre of Madrid. She said that although schoolchildren had been striking around the world, this “has not translated into action” from governments.

“I’m just an activist and we need more activists,” she said. “Some people are afraid to change – they try so desperately to silence us.”

Thunberg expressed hope for the UN negotiations but doubted whether governments had got the message, and warned the world could not afford continued inaction.

“I sincerely hope COP25 will reach something concrete and increase awareness among people, and that world leaders and people in power grasp the urgency of the climate crisis, because right now it does not seem that they are.” she said.

Although young people would keep striking, Thunberg said, they wanted to stop – if governments made credible promises and showed a willingness to act.

“We can’t go on like this; it is not sustainable that children skip school and we don’t want to continue – we would love some action from the people in power. People are suffering and dying today. We can’t wait any longer,” she said.

Thunberg is a grandiose narcissist, imagining that she and school strikes would have an immediate impact on the so-called “climate change”.

Time for this brainwashed twit to STFU and go away.

Her fifteen minutes have long expired.

The school strikes mean nothing but ditching a few hours off from school and not get in trouble for it…

Well, she hasn’t achieved *nothing*; she’s prevented a generation of school kids from obtaining their education in a normal time period. They’ll all obviously be held back for having missed so many school days of instruction for her silly cause, right? It’s the law in most developed countries. Or they’ll simply be passed on (in typical PC procedure), to remain ignorant activists for the rest of their lives. Wonderful.

Future historians, if there are any, will record our era as a time of mass psychosis. As much as I am tempted, I can’t hate Greta, she is thoroughly mind-controlled. She actually believes that getting a number of kids to skip school will force the rest of the world to pull the plug on Western Civilization in order to solve a non-problem. Although there are some indications (sarc to follow) that we are in the middle of a Climate Emergency. About a week ago we got around two feet of snow here and this got me to thinking, mainly because… Read more »

I fart in Greta’s general direction! Kids today are so scared of climate change that they can not function. I get sick of hearing them say that my generation has screwed up the world. Kids want to be everything except productive members of society…. News flash.. Learn a damn TRADE and forget the liberal arts nonsense where you graduate with an empty degree, empty head and a shithouse full of debt. The world is full of unemployable people with no clue…

Just as soon you didn’t give this tool any press. But then I do want to know what the enemy is up to.
