the usa is the biggest carbon polluter per capita, and the 2nd biggest in absolute carbon pollution. we are amongst the biggest offendors. also, china and russia are part of the un she addressed. what are you even talking about?
im not sure if shes a hero, but she certainly is doing something good. much more then the average joe. sorry she isnt ghandi, she is still better then the vast majority of people that do nothing, or even better, hate on others who do something.
This is such a tired right wing trope. Someone doing something good is bad because they should be doing a different good thing.
I see this when people demonize doing good things for immigrants "because we should be supporting the veterans". Well great, push your members of congress to support the veterans. Don't demonize the people helping immigrants. But usually, those same people will vote for politicians who don't do a damn thing for veterans because they never actually cared about veterans, they just wanted to attack immigrants.
Greta is trying to push countries to save the planet. But you want to demonize her because there are countries she can't get into? That is such a weak argument.
Yes, well to make her a hero for going to friendly countries isn't a grand thing. If she really is all concerned about Climate Change she will go were it is the worst.
how about we discuss the issues instead of attacking people? i mean i could make a million orange man bad threads, but that wont get us far.
authoritarian states done give her a platform to make change. china has strong censorships and border controls. she cannot make change there. she can make change in the west. she goes where she can make the most change. thats not cowardice, thats efficiency.
lets examine the claim of cowardice. how many national assemblies have you addressed? how many national to multinational controversies have you thrust yourself into the middle of, opening yourself to mass ridicule of random trolls and pundits?
what i have seen you do is bash random people and then run when your claims are questioned. im still waiting for you to back up your AOC claim, or be a man and admit that you were repeating fake news. hopefully learn how to spot and avoid fake news in the process.
She doesn't stand up against the worst inviromental abusers, ie. China, Russia
