I just got home from one of the Demos it was again fun (like the last ones)! It's so amazing, I'm happy she started this project, this is a really important thing that we can fight for and it's good to see others thinking so as well!

Her nomination is helped by the fact the Nobel Prize Committee is located in Scandinavia and that this young girl is Swedish.

Meanwhile a 16 yr old boy from Holland wanted to clean the ocean from plastic waste so he WENT TO SCHOOL and studied engineering and went on to invent the world's first ocean plastic cleanup system. He is actually saving our environment instead of just talking about it.

Students should educate themselves on nuclear energy and Fukushima. THAT'S where the fight should be!

”In the year 2078, I will celebrate my 75th birthday. If I have children or grandchildren, maybe they will spend that day with me. Maybe they will ask me about you, the people who were around back in 2018. Maybe they will ask why you didn’t do anything while there still was time to act. What we do or don’t do right now, will affect my entire life and the lives of my children and grandchildren. What we do or don’t do right now, me and my generation can’t undo in the future”.

Please also refer to the channel Sentiers perdus to understand the lack of political action against Climate Change.

I want to challenge this nomination within a narrative of "exposure and accomplishment", hear me out:
- Let's say Greta recieves the Nobel Prize. Will the exposure climate change gets from it affect political leaders? Those that deny it, will they change their mind? No, I don't think so.
 - And if she gets the prize, will she be presented differently? As if she has accomplished something and doesn't need to do more? Yes, I think so.
 - Can a Nobel peace prize communicate something like this to the outside world: "I have fought for something, and now my work is done BECAUSE it was acknowledged?" Yes, I think so.
 - Can a Nobel Prize be used to discredit someone in the eyes of the public? To make the recipient's issue seem like it's solved? Yes, I think so.

Fighting climate change? and how much would you have to pay the UN to keep it 70 degrees and 55 percent humidity at all times? Climate change, bigfoot, Russian collusion, UFOs....do you see a pattern?

CBS and other networks have not covered the yellow vest protest since just after they began!
Yet they bring us this bit of news from across the pond.
Figure it out which story is ant-globalist yet?
See any bias here?

It's all fun and jokes until your kid has to use an inhaler, or you can't go to the beach because it looks like a dump, or the creek near you is full of dead fish. People don't realize that we only have one Earth, and we have to take care of it...it's not like we can move to another planet.
