I think you're out of luck. She's a superstar by now.

With no offence to you, I think rather in that case that she is out of luck.....the powerful oil tycoons do not like trouble makers....and the icy roads can get very slippy in some regions...

You go girl hold their feet to the fire make them face what’s happening so all of us can start making responsible changes and grow into a more sustainable world I’m proud of you kiddo!

And first of all make her shut up. 

Small point that needs clarifying. It was Greta's parents that filled her head with confusion, hate and panic, ergo they "stole her dreams". Textbook child abuse really. When she gets bored of this cl

Well, i stated repeatedly that i admire and respect Greta, and all the idealist teens who shout for a better world.

Science is not and will never be settled, otherwise is not science. No one in this thread is undermining science, we are just discussing it.

Apparently, fossil fuels, besides being environment and health damaging, are a finite resource, so it's quite rational to invest on research on cleaner and renewable energies.

That said, the " climate alarmism" is not only unnecessary, but it may cloud the judgement of many.

Personally, i'm more alarmed by wars, social injustice, slavery, and so on.

i think she is symptomatic of the entire climate change

gang, inadequate education but a lot of hysterical yelling,

it follows then that she becomes a natural spokesman for the bunch

I haven't really listened to Greta much, but my understanding is that she is not debating the science, or claiming to be an expert. She accepts the overwhelming evidence (As any sensible person should IMO) and is advocating a response to the situation.

Not sure what she wants, except to know who stole her bike, uh, dreams that was. No description of the said dreams was provided so a tad difficult to put an APB on the thief.

So the people who don't believe in Climate change have an adequate education then. 🤣🤣🤣

Well, first i would avoid to confuse "man made climate change" which is an unproven theory, with extreme levels of pollution which are very real.

2nd, i would avoid to belittle and despise a 16 yrs old and the youth in general.

The positive thing about this whole drama, is that people of every age are discussing the various issues of our planet, and this is imho, a step forward in the right direction.

I have a science degree and a postgrad.

Don't know about climate change, but I do know the sea level hasn't changed a measurable amount in the past 120 years, and that does cast a little doubt on the whole 'science' IMHO.

She's in need of some decent parenting, looks more like a victim than an advocate to me.

Ok, in some way she's a victim, but if you look at thousands of children around the world, exploited, maimed or killed, or even sold as slaves, it's not that big deal.

Surely, if i had a 16 yrs old daughter, i'd rather have her having the life of an ordinary 16 yrs old.

But that's just me, i wouldn't dare to criticise Greta's parents choices.

I want my kids to be happy, not to hate.

But maybe Greta's hate is a part of her mental illness and nothing to do with her parents.

Mental illness ? I don't think so, and it's normal for idealist teens to get angry when they see some injustice, real or perceived.

I think she's very bright instead; perhaps she's a bit introverted, that makes her more mature and adult then her age.

Odd that you refused to see them, when they came to visit you then 

Your mom and I appear to have similar methods for dealing with visits from our unwanted children.

Story says she has Asperger's ........ google tells me that's a mental illness.
