The teenage climate change activist from Sweden, Greta Thunberg, has made herself very clear in a recent op-ed for Project Syndicate.

Thunberg lashed out at the entire world in her op-ed and demanded change to everything under the sun.

The angry young teen says that fossil fuels “are literally” killing mankind and are a threat to humanity’s “very existence.”

She also whined that her climate agenda is not just about the environment — it’s also about fighting colonialism, racism, and patriarchal systems of oppression.

This poor girl should be going to the movies with her friends and riding roller coasters, not pushing garbage, in my opinion.

Here’s how The Daily Wire explained it:

Although she did not explicitly say it, Thunberg admitted that the Paris Climate Accord — which would have cost the United States trillions of dollars and hundreds of thousands of jobs — has been an abject failure.

Thunberg wrote: “Recent research shows that we are on track to produce 120 percent more fossil fuels in 2030 than would be consistent with the 1.5°C limit. The concentration of climate-heating greenhouse gases in our atmosphere has reached a record high, with no sign of a slowdown. Even if countries fulfill their current emissions-reduction pledges, we are headed for a 3.2°C increase.”

The American Prospect reports: In 2015, the Paris Climate accord gave every country in the world the ability to set its own goals to combat the climate crisis. World leaders agreed to do their part toward stopping planet temperatures from rising more than 2 degrees Celsius — later updated to 1.5 degrees — above pre-industrial levels.

Thunberg said that her far-Left activism has been about “changing perceptions” and “shifting” “public opinion” on climate change and getting “schoolchildren” to lead “the way in raising awareness.”

“Fossil fuels are literally choking the life from us,” Thunberg continued. “That action must be powerful and wide-ranging. After all, the climate crisis is not just about the environment. It is a crisis of human rights, of justice, and of political will. Colonial, racist, and patriarchal systems of oppression have created and fueled it. We need to dismantle them all. Our political leaders can no longer shirk their responsibilities.”

Thunberg said that her goal in her “climate resistance movement” is “to change everything.”

“So we will keep up a steady drumbeat of strikes, protests, and other actions,” Thunberg added. “We will become louder and louder. We will do whatever it takes to persuade our leaders to unite behind science so clear that even children understand it.” (source: The Daily Wire)

Another young activist, David Hogg, is claiming that over the next couple of years, protests for the climate will be so large that police won’t be able to handle it and the military will have to be called in.

Is Hogg of Parkland, Florida, now giving up his anti-gun activism in order to join with Thunberg?

The Daily Wire shared this as well: “Fellow far-left activist David Hogg made similar extremist remarks on Twitter last week regarding the climate, writing: ‘In the next couple of years the protests will become so big that cops won’t be able to handle it and the national guard/military will have to be called in.'”

“Thunberg has a well-documented history of preaching climate radicalism on the world stage as she recently ranted at the United Nations in a speech that was praised by the political Left and the media while condemned by many others,” the same outlet also noted.
