Well-known teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg is back. This time, she called the country’s policies concerning the environment a “disgrace.”
“If you compare the current so-called ‘climate policies’ to the overall current best available science, you clearly see that there’s a huge gap,” Greta Thunberg said. “It is the year 2021. The fact that we are still having this discussion and even more that we are still subsidizing fossil fuels directly or indirectly using taxpayer money is a disgrace.”
The fact that her agenda isn’t far from AOC’s Green New Deal is pretty telling. Of course, the teenager is not a scientist—as she herself admitted—but she still speaks as if she is one.
“Nor am I a scientist,” Thunberg admitted. “All I can do is to urge you to listen to and act on the science and to use your common sense.”
According to Newsmax TV’s Emma Rechenberg, if the Biden administration actually wants to “follow the science,” it “might be best actually to listen to a scientist.” Despite not being a scientist or having an economic background, Thunberg tells us what we should do.
“And the simple fact, an uncomfortable fact, is that if we are to live up to our promises and commitments in the Paris agreements, we have to end fossil fuel subsidies, stop new exploration and extraction, completely divest from fossil fuels, and keep the carbon in the ground,” she said.
Let’s hope that the American people have enough common sense to know how some of the policies she’s proposing are “out-of-line.”
