Because Democrats control Congress and the White House, 2021 dictates that Greta Thunberg speak remotely with members of Congress about climate change.
Dem Rep. Katie Porter asked for some advice from Thunberg in regards to her daughter being scared by all the “we’ve only got XX years to live” rhetoric:
.@RepKatiePorter’s 9-year-old daughter said, “The Earth is on fire and we’re all going to die soon.” The congresswoman asked @GretaThunberg about the emotional toll of climate change on youth https://t.co/GTtIE58NSb pic.twitter.com/fYrE6y39cb

Wow, somebody’s allowing her kids to be frightened to help push the Left’s narrative — if what Porter said is even true:
Maybe if Mommy would stop terrifying her daughter over imaginary problems, things would improve.

If you're contributing to a discourse where you allow 9 year-olds to live in an utterly irrational fear than you're not solving anything. https://t.co/IClvv0xtOb

And “solving” a problem isn’t the goal behind all this.
This is emotional abuse. https://t.co/P5UeKc4ljn

Okay, so Katie Porter psychologically abuses her child.

A Member of Congress asking a high school dropout how to comfort her mentally abused child is peak woke. https://t.co/eaPjeFdItU

Communism is an existential threat. Lying to children, damaging their mental health with doom porn should be a cluckin crime https://t.co/Y7ahAOVdor

Maybe the emotional toll of climate change on our youth isn’t significant at all? The emotional toll of people telling kids “THE EARTH IS DOOMED!” on the other hand… https://t.co/Z1x28j0JH0

Ben Shapiro summed it up this way:
Emotionally crippling your children to own the cons https://t.co/2jz2eQonR2
