Teen Greta Thunberg Says Meeting with Trump ‘Would Be a Waste of Time, Really’

Climate-change activism is this young woman's life right now — yet she told Ellen DeGeneres she doesn't see the point of talking to President Donald Trump

Climate activist Greta Thunberg, a teenager from Sweden, said meeting with President Donald Trump would be a waste of time for her.

Huh. 

Greta Thunberg appeared on the “Ellen” show this past Friday.

This young teen should have a meeting with three of the top climate experts in the world.

That’s right.

Do you own a gun?

Maybe the young spokesperson for climate change could sit with three of the world’s climate experts to discuss the real story. (Those individuals are Dr. William Happer, Princeton University, Dr. Steven E. Koonin, New York University and Dr. Richard S. Lindzen, Massachusetts Institute of Technology).

To be clear, the climate is always changing.

Changes like those of the past half-century are common in the geologic record, driven by powerful natural phenomena — but Democrat leaders don’t want people to know that, it seems.

Human influences on the climate are small (1 percent) compared to natural energy flows.

It is not possible to tell how much of the modest recent warming can be ascribed to human influences; there have been no detrimental changes observed in the most salient climate variables.

So today’s projections of future changes are highly uncertain.

This is the problem today: People are not willing to talk to those on the other side of the argument.

They feel “it is my way or the highway.”

We are willing to scream and call names — but having a civil argument is no longer an option for many people.

Who is paying Greta Thunberg’s expenses? Who is arranging her travel, writing her speeches, issuing her press releases?

Who is setting up her TV interviews?

That is what a true journalist would find out and report.

Check this out from Yahoo News:

Swedish teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg says she wouldn’t want to meet with President Trump even if given the opportunity.

“I don’t understand why I would do that,” Thunberg told Ellen DeGeneres in an interview that air[ed] Friday on the “Ellen” show.

“I don’t see what I could tell him that he hasn’t already heard. And I just think it would be a waste of time, really.”

Thunberg was in Los Angeles [on] Friday for a protest rally by students opposed to new fossil-fuel production. She has drawn the ire of Trump, whose administration rolled back Obama-era environmental protections and withdrew the U.S. from the Paris climate accord.

The president has frequently dismissed dire warnings from climate scientists, and in a 2012 tweet claimed “the concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.” (source: Yahoo News)

This young girl means well but doesn’t understand what is causing the climate to change or the fact it is always changing.

Greta Thunberg’s parents are both climate activists who — like Al Gore before them — see a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, in my opinion.

Note that Gore has made so much money he’s retired to one of his many huge, carbon-footprint mansions — and is laughing all the way to the bank in his retirement.

Ice ages come and go.

“By 800,000 years ago, a cyclical pattern had emerged: Ice ages last about 100,000 years followed by warmer interglacials of 10,000 to 15,000 years each,” according to National Geographic.

“The last ice age ended about 10,000 years ago. Sea levels rose rapidly, and the continents achieved their present-day outline.”
