16-year-old who sparked climate change protests across Europe delivers striking message to global elites


Greta Thunberg, a 16-year-old girl from Sweden whose activism for climate change sparked protests demonstrations across Europe delivered a bold message to financial and political elites as they gathered at the World Economic Forum in Davos earlier this week. 
"Adults keep saying we owe it to the young people, to give them hope. But I don't want your hope. I don't want you to be hopeful. I want you to panic. I want you to feel the fear I feel every day. I want you to act,” Thunberg said during her speech on Thursday, according to NPR News.
“I want you to act as you would in a crisis. I want you to act as if the house is on fire, because it is,” she continued. 
The teenager explained to the BBC shortly after her speech that her message “was that most emissions are caused by a few people, the very rich people, who are here in Davos."
"These people have very much power, they could really change something, so I think they have a huge responsibility. They need to put their economic goals aside to safeguard the living conditions of humankind in the future,” Thunberg told the news agency. 
According to the BBC, a number of protesters have organized across Europe crediting Thunberg for their inspiration.
Thunberg reportedly came into international prominence last year after she began demonstrating outside the Swedish parliament once a week to advocate for climate change.
The young activist would reportedly take a 32-hour train ride to Sweden from Davos to demonstrate.
Her mode of transport also served to underline the need for cleaner forms of traveling as other forms of transportation like jets have gained notoriety for their high emissions of carbon dioxide.

  1. "The ONLY thing anybody needs to know about "climate change" is NOT if it is real or not. Nope, that really does not matter. What you need to know is that the "cure" being touted for it is nothing more than another TAX. And the most pathetic thing about people whining about the "human caused climate change" is that NONE of them are willing to discuss the out of control human population part of that equation. If they are not willing to discuss the root cause, then they need to shut up about Trillion dollar Band-Aids."

  2. ...the entire ..."Climate Change"...model and malarkey cannot possibly be accurate. It is the excuse the elite are trying to use to generate a global currency through the use of carbon credits, and transfer wealth from poor countries to the rich. How do I know this? Because science has no idea how many underseas volcanoes exist, how often they erupt...nor the amount of carbon the put into the environment. Without such data in their models, how could their carbon predictions and models be correct in anyway? They cannot. It's all BS.
