In December 2019, the far-left TIME publication named teen climate actress, Greta Thunberg, their “Person of the Year.” Their decision left many people scratching their heads, wondering what the teenager from Sweden has actually done to deserve so much recognition from the media?
Many have questioned the teenager’s sudden ascension to worldwide fame. Is she a brilliant communicator with an uncanny knowledge of the global climate change religion? Is she truly passionate about saving the world from evil citizens who refuse to stop raising cattle, drive vehicles, or fly in airplanes? Or, was she simply put in the position of “spokesperson” for the climate religion fanatics because of her ability to act?
The teen climate activist, Greta Thunberg, achieved worldwide fame when she blasted onto the world stage in September 2019.
The dramatic, 16-year-old climate kid, Greta Thunberg, ranted in a room filled with world leaders at the UN Climate Summit in New York City:“You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words, and yet I’m one of the lucky ones!”
Thunberg, the daughter of an actor father and mother who’s also an entertainer, looked like a typical child actor trying out for a role in an upcoming movie, admonished some of the most powerful people in the world with unfounded accusations and allegations, “People are suffering, people are dying. Entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are in the beginning of a mass extinction, and all you can talk about is money and fairytales of eternal economic growth. How dare you!?”
But it was Thunberg’s press conference at the UN Climate Summit, that curiously received very little scrutiny from the press.
Thunberg was asked by a member of the media, “Greta, tell us, what kind of message would you send by doing this to world leaders,” adding, “Also can I ask you, do you think it’s about time that President Trump would respond to what you have said today?”
After a long, awkward pause, Thunberg asked, “Um… I think….I’m sorry, what was the first question?”
The reporter repeated the question.
Thunberg responded, “I think that the message that we want to send is that we’ve had enough.” Thunberg awkwardly turned to the other children on the panel and asked, “Does anyone else want to answer that question,” adding, “I can’t speak on behalf of everyone.”
The panel of climate kids was asked, “Does anyone else wish to answer—about a message to our leaders?”
The panel of child activists sat frozen without giving a single response.
Thunberg was asked again if she thought President Trump, who was attending the UN Climate Summit, should “respond in any way?”
Again, Thunberg dodged the question, saying, “I think maybe you should give some questions to the others, as well.”
Apparently, being a teenage climate actress/activist qualifies one to speak as an expert on CNN’s upcoming “Coronavirus Facts and Fears” panel, hosted by Anderson Cooper.

Social media users are mercilessly mocking CNN on social media for including the teen activist on their panel.
In a tweet, conservative comedian, Tim Young points out how the media adores the teenage, high-school dropout climate activist, yet mocks Senator Rand Paul (a doctor of Ophthalmology) for having the audacity to question the great and powerful
Oz Dr. Fauci yesterday. During the Senate hearings, Dr. Rand Paul questioned the logic of schools remaining closed next year over fears of the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic.

Even Donald Trump Jr. joined in the chorus of people questioning CNN’s panel of guests.
Greta Thunberg having a remarkable career already in that as a teenager she’s now a world renowned infectious disease specialist and epidemiologist AND a leading scientific voice when it comes to global climate policy. Just wow so impressive.
