  1. She has no idea what she talking about ,we just been in a pandemic at 1 point every plain was grounded,everyone was imprisoned in there houses the street an shops were empty
    And now she saying Co2 an that is higher than ever, well how did

  2. I think she should shut her mouth now, she talking about bollocks
    Climate change when there a PANDEMIC going BARE PEOPLE have died, and she trying to make out like her bullshit is worse.

  3. She don't even no what its like to be a adult ,that says its all to me.,what are all these changes she wants she don't no anything about the world . people have lost the plot

  4. people need to quit giving her a platform. she's clueless. with nearly 8 BILLION people on earth, well over 100 countries… she's not gonna solve climate issues. she's clearly expecting overnight results.
    she doesn't understand the world yet. an adult/or many, are using her as a puppet. what I hear from her? "blah blah blah" ! that's all.

  5. One crisp winter morning in Sweden, a cute little girl named The Angry Beaver woke up to a perfect world, one where there were no petroleum products ruining the earth. She tossed aside her cotton sheet and wool blanket and stepped out onto a dirt floor covered with willow bark that had been pulverized with rocks. “What’s this?” she asked.
    “Pulverized willow bark,” replied her fairy godmother.
    “What happened to the carpet?” she asked.
    “The carpet was nylon, which is made from butadiene and hydrogen cyanide, both made from petroleum,” came the response.
    The Angry Beaver smiled, acknowledging that adjustments are necessary to save the planet, and moved to the sink to brush her teeth where instead of a toothbrush, she found a willow, mangled on one end to expose wood fibre bristles.
    “Your old toothbrush?” noted her godmother, “Also nylon.”
    “Where’s the water?” asked The Angry Beaver
    “Down the road in the canal,” replied her godmother, ‘Just make sure you avoid water with cholera in it”
    “Why’s there no running water?” The Angry Beaver asked, becoming a little peevish.
    “Well,” said her godmother, who happened to teach engineering at MIT, “Where do we begin?” There followed a long monologue about how sink valves need elastomer seats and how copper pipes contain copper, which has to be mined and how it’s impossible to make all-electric earth-moving equipment with no gear lubrication or tires and how ore has to be smelted to a make metal, and that’s tough to do with only electricity as a source of heat, and even if you use only electricity, the wires need insulation, which is petroleum-based, and though most of Sweden’s energy is produced in an environmentally friendly way because of hydro and nuclear, if you do a mass and energy balance around the whole system, you still need lots of petroleum products like lubricants and nylon and rubber for tires and asphalt for filling potholes and wax and iPhone plastic and elastic to hold your underwear up while operating a copper smelting furnace and . . .
    “What’s for breakfast?” interjected The Angry Beaver whose head was hurting.
    "Fresh, range-fed chicken eggs,” replied her godmother. “Raw.”
    “How so, raw?” inquired The Angry Beaver.
    “Well, . . .” And once again, Greta was told about the need for petroleum products like transformer oil and scores of petroleum products essential for producing metals for frying pans and in the end was educated about how you can’t have a petroleum-free world and then cook eggs. Unless you rip your front fence up and start a fire and carefully cook your egg in an orange peel like you do in Boy Scouts. Not that you can find oranges in Sweden anymore.
    “But I want poached eggs like my Aunt Tilda makes,” lamented The Angry Beaver.
    “Tilda died this morning,” the godmother explained. “Bacterial pneumonia.”
    “What?!” interjected The Angry Beaver.. “No one dies of bacterial pneumonia! We have penicillin.”
    “Not anymore,” explained godmother “The production of penicillin requires chemical extraction using isobutyl acetate, which, if you know your organic chemistry, is petroleum-based. Lots of people are dying, which is problematic because there’s not any easy way of disposing of the bodies since backhoes need hydraulic oil and crematoriums can’t really burn many bodies using as fuel Swedish fences and furniture, which are rapidly disappearing – being used on the black market for roasting eggs and staying warm.”
    This represents only a fraction of The Angry Beavers’s day, a day without microphones to exclaim into and a day without much food, and a day without carbon-fibre boats to sail in, but a day that will save the planet.
    Tune in tomorrow when The Angry Beaver needs a root canal and learns how Novocain is synthesized.

  6. how can you become an adult, were you ever a child ,, you might be happier the elites might be happier and the bankers will but the rest of us are being exterminated ,,,, what did they do to you as a child ,,you have been manufacturd for this rolegretta

  7. Don't these Ignorant Clowns realize that without Coal and Heating oil there would be no Trees. That without Oil there would be no Whales. That without Petroleum Products we would be like Gambia, Angola and Guinea.
