I'm not sure here yet whether emotionalism is overcoming

wait-and-see common sense.

Peter Koenig's article on Saudi "False Flag destruction"

adds a new dimension to this whole picture.


Just my inner feeling.

Greta Thunberg is a pathetic puppet of the rich who use her to manipulate people. Controlling the opposition is the best way to make sure nothing will change. I have defined the bright future of humankind and do not have access anywhere. This is how things work in the western world.

She is speaking in a language that is not her native tongue, and in addition she is autistic. I think these factors may account for what might appear to be an "odd performance" ...would that I could speak any second language as well...

Well, I have read about them in various articles, they are supporting her in her quest...in an interview, her father said he would prefer for her to go to school, but that she is miserable if she is not following her inner calling to wake up the world. Her parents have apparently both become vegetarians at her insistence that it is important for preserving the climate.


Clearly Greta has found her passion in life, and is acting on that...which is unusual for any youngster (and in most adults, frankly), and even more unusual to see this kind of activity from someone who is autistic.

She is talking to a bunch of unelected pompous a$$e$ who really don't have much of a say in things. The bottom line is the most they may do is nominate this actress for an Emmy.

She has been amazingly effective in inspiring millions of people around the world to participate in climate marches...there are a handful of people on this planet who have inspired millions like that...

I do not deny she fights for the right cause. But if she were not supported financially, she would be able to reach her family and nobody else. Those people who finance her are the same people she fights against, but she does not know that. They manipulate her and play with you people. The Occupy movement was the same thing; the rich took control by financing it. And what were the accomplishments?

M-A, I think she has been raised in a very well-to-do family along the French Riviera, primed by George Soros'friends, and came to US in a very sleek no-

CO2 emitting yacht by Grace Kelley's grandson. I would think twice before

swallowing. Just wondering.

Those who seek to profit from"Green" capitalism are using Greta to co-opt the climate movement. Notice there is no mention of the US military being the biggest user of fossil fuels and the biggest emitter of CO2 on the planet. Great's credibility was compromised when it was arranged that she should meet the fracker in chief Obama. The ex-president who bragged about making the US the biggest exporter of fossil fuels in the world. I fear these idealistic kids are going to be blindsided by the cynicism of the ruling class when it hits them how they've been snookered. Can those who see their movement being undermined wise them up in time?

Great speech by Greta. As Meryl Ann correctly mentioned she spoke in another language.

I do not care who supports her. She tried to raise awareness.

In my view, the majority of UN members have no backbone to vote or speak independently.

I agree with some comments that wars are the biggest pollutant EVEN after wars are finished, their negative effects will stay with us for many years to come.

I did not think one day capitalistic system will be blamed for the majority of problems we are facing today. Maximizing profits to make few rich has resulted in destruction of our planet.

Enough of maximizing, enough of profits being the ultimate goal.

There's a chance, Mohamad, that you may need to research this more fully -

re: Soros, Zionism, et al.

This young, lovely, little lady, IMHO, portrays another misuse/abuse.
