  1. FACT…We have only been keeping accurate records since the 1850s… We experience a mini ice age every 500 to 600 years… We have have not completed even a half of one cycle…. So, they are talking utter nonsense because reliable data is not in.

  2. Lets send a child with no understanding of forest management or even a clue as to when and how the fire started to speak on it. These people are exploiting a child and a preventable tragedy for profit. Twisted capitalists

  3. and how did she get to California? Did she ride a fuel guzzler jumbo jet? I agree that the planet needs to be protected but the radical message she's spewing is impractical.

  4. Maybe if California cut the underbrush then the fires wouldn’t be so catastrophic! This is a disgusting way to politicize climate change what happened in California is lack of underbrush cutting nothing more than that…

  5. The deep state controls the weather with HAARP machines. And they also start the fires on purpose, to manipulate us. WE ALL KNOW !! This chick is a brainwashed prisoner … you should all be arrested for using her to make fake headlines.

  6. There are you tube video's illustrating how weather systems are manipulated via the use of HAARP. The entire west coast of California becomes rain free. Storm clouds are diverted to the north and south of the state. Doing this repeatedly makes for drought like scenarios. B.C. just went through the same situation. Rain all winter, then nothing but heat all summer. Magically not a drop of rain. Is this for the sake of a few tax dollars. Greta needs to ask what affect does all the spraying of chemicals have on the climate.

  7. Stop expecting white people to solve the worlds problems. India and China await you. Grab Prince Harry and Megan malarkey and get moving. Asia is the absolute biggest destroyed of our ozone. Go tell Asia about your disappointments.

  8. 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.

  9. The incompetence of a governor that will not take responsibility to do proper forest maintenance in order to try an prevent these wildfires! Instead he spends money on ridiculous stupid programs! You vote for this type of leadership you get what you wanted!

  10. She's only 4'11 and her shoes size are 6 and she's very cute, she knows what's she's doing she's not afraid to stand up for herself and the world. She could work with Shawn Penn and other activist.
