Let me start this article by saying this isn’t about to be a 1,000 piece on the dangers of Climate Change.
Personally, I think there should be a bajillion other things on the government’s to-do list but I’m also impulsive and need instant gratification and there’s something about Global ‘Warming’ that doesn’t seem to have the same urgency as let’s say, systematic/generational racism, the wealth gap and affordable health care.
That being said, there’s a difference between moving Climate Change down the queue and pretending like it’s not even happening which is what America has been doing for decades and Greta Thunberg is fed the fuck up.
The 16-year Swedish Climate Change activist came to New York with the biggest chip on her shoulder to look the United Nations in their dumb little faces and PREACH.
If you can ignore the weird Helen Mirran ‘for your consideration’ Oscar performance, homegirl is not playing around.
Greta Thunberg represents everything I hate about modern politics. Young people appear to be the only ones who passionately care about the future of this world while elderly leaders are all about self-preservation.
Joe Biden doesn’t even know where he is right now and you think he’s going to save us from maniacs with guns? You think he’s going to push for clean energy for a world he won’t be alive for?
Obviously, the right immediately tried to mock this girl and take the air out of her sails which is always an interesting move. Seeing old people mock a teenage girl for wanting clean air to breathe while simultaneously praising a teenage girl for bringing her gun with her to campus to trigger snowflakes or some shit.
I should probably also point out that Greta Thunberg has Aspergers and I bring that up to once again point out that there’s a 16 year old girl with Aspergers who is astronomically more focused and informed than most of our geriatric world leaders.
Stop voting for people who don’t care about 5 years from now. Instead, Vote for Greta Thunberg.
