When you hear her talk, she knows a lot about climate change and has really understood the issues. She is very smart and has obviously done a lot of reading on the issues and has a more honest ethical assessment of it than some people. her speech to the UK Parliament was totally on the money about UK issues in relation to climate change, and it's not even her country! I love the fact that she has turned down all the things that she's been offered outside Europe, and only goes to things in Europe that she can reach by train. Quite a difference to Emma Thompson who didn't even bother to fly economy class on her way to the protests from the US.

Greta Thurnberg is a real hero. Let's hope she goes into politics although that would be too late for climate solutions but a smart, ethical person like her will likely come to good judgements on other issues also.

Here in the US we now have the Sunrise Movement. I don't think she is officially connected to the movement but you almost can't find an article about the Sunrise Movement that doesn't mention her.

Yeah I posted a thread about her a few weeks ago in the Environment section.

Oh, Hey. Whatever happened to that little girl who challenged the Pope to go Vegan for Lent?

Here in Belgium many middle- and elementary schoolers did a protest every Thursday in cities throughout the country (schools would willfully go to the protests with their students) for several months but now these seem to have come to an end with no actual resolution. The one that inspired these strikes was Greta. Very inspiring indeed but it lasted so long that it actually had an adverse effect on the adults they were trying to reach. Most people got tired of it and just ignored it completely.
