Remember back in October when CNN’s Brian Stelter shared the “unsettling” statistic that 78 percent of Americans don’t hear about climate change even once a week in their media diets?
CNN’s doing what it can to make sure we all get our daily recommended allowance of climate hysteria, and this gave the spotlight to teen climate activist Greta Thunberg.
“We must hold the older generations accountable for the mess they have created. … and say to them you cannot continue risking our future like this." Teen climate activist Greta Thunberg calls on young people to use their anger as activism. https://t.co/eB1UVfohKZ pic.twitter.com/QKCplCIMht

Yeah, remember when you were kids, and your fathers and grandfathers mined coal so that you could have heat and electricity? Well, screw those guys. We should be angry with them for destroying the planet and leaving little more than an inhospitable shell for teens like Thunberg to eke out some form of survival.
Use your anger, young people. Be angry at the older generation that gave you a life so soft that you can only find meaning in pretending to save a planet whose climate has been changing for 6 billion years.

It's also tacitly inferred to the child that the act of bringing her into the world "just made another polluting mouth to feed".
They will arrive at than on their own from the heavy indoctrination dispensed to them – so don't try to tell me you "care".

Angry jobless teens. Wonderful.

Stopped flying? Does she mean just her or has her whole family stopped. Stopped buying new things? Same question, just her or has her entire family stopped buying new things. Sorry but not interested in some 15 yr old guilt tripping everyone.

Good for her. Leaves more for the rest of us. We do need to hold my generation accountable for raising kids who can't see through the climate change hoax.

Generation X has a lot to answer for. Mainly that we did a horrible job raising Millennials and Gen Z. We really screwed the pooch there. Sorry, America.

Take away their electronics, their electricity, their hot food,their warm house,their nice clothes, make them walk everywhere, then they’ll have something to be angry about.

Want to hold older generations accountable? Reform Social Security and Medicare. It’s a Ponzi scheme. If you can’t do that, climate legislation is untouchable.

They’re growing up in the most comfortable and safest time in human history but have been taught to feel like victims. The one real complaint they do have though is debt. But instead of addressing that injustice they’re calling for policies that will worsen it.

I proudly stand with you & your Mao Youth Regiment. Will your all knowing and true educational channel be using its superior righteousness & IQs to create the curriculum for the re-education programs? I can’t wait for our parents to finally be made to know your/the truth! 💂🏼♂️

She should take her privileged view on climate to developing countries and ask what they think about her priorities.

The "mess" we've created includes halving global poverty in two decades. Sorry, Greta. Shouldn't have bothered.
