Greta Thunberg's climate change speech

Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

It’s at times like this I remember why one has an ignore list.

Back on topic.

Greta - a source for change or a source for ridicule? Discuss.

Lol, you miss me or something.

Alternatively, how about pack up the dick-swinging and contribute to the actual topic??

True, they brought up a predictable, non free thinking, brainwashed generation of lemmings instead. :plus1:
China has thus far managed to avoid trans kids.

Strange when I was in China last year I met so many kids trying to imitate western style. They called themselves cutesy western names and danced to western music. Not so different after all!!
Did they take puberty blockers, go massively in student loan debt and burn down the Wendy's? That's the real Western style.
Geez what happenned to you to have such a negative view of western youth. Good and bad in all cultures. I find that the more I have traveled the more I see the similarities in all humanity.
My entire life can be summed up in one sentence:
"Well that didnt go as planned".

The kids see, hear and read that 98% of climate scientists have come to a certain conclusion - and that 98% of all other scientists agree with them because they know that the science is rigorous, valid and important.

Do you want them to tell their teachers they are wrong and to throw all the science books out the window?
Or just suck on the science and get on with becoming a comfortably living dentist?
Or what?

(ps, i think it is actually more like 99% but hey...

I'll bite. I'd say Greta is a bit of both.

More importantly, reactions to Greta may be more important and indicative of the current mood. Greta is the anti-Trump. While there are reasonable arguments against both people, their haters seem to be motivated by irrational hate rather than logic. Again, a sign of the times.
