On Tuesday, CBS This Morning was in awe of radical climate change activist Greta Thunberg, hailing the 16-year-old from Sweden as the voice of the planet and touting her plan to sail across the Atlantic to attend a United Nations climate summit in New York. The report particularly applauded Thunberg for scolding the United States and President Trump for not doing enough to stop global warming.
A teenager from Sweden called the voice of the planet is ready to cross the Atlantic on a mission to fight climate change....Shell be sailing from Europe to New York to call on world leaders to protect the environment, co-host Anthony Mason proclaimed as he introduced the segment early in the 8:00 a.m. ET hour. The headline on screen echoed: The Voice of the Planet; 16-Year-Old Climate Activist Sailing From Europe to New York.
Reporting from Stockholm, correspondent Roxana Saberi fawned: Greta Thunberg doesnt like all this attention....But the 16-year-old travels from stage...to stage...with a warning were running out of time to tackle climate change. After promoting other children skipping school to join Thunbergs climate protests, the reporter gushed: All of these people are here to see Greta, a sign of just how much her message is resonating here in Sweden and across Europe.
Saberi then celebrated the teenagers next move:
Now shes taking her message to the other side of the Atlantic. Shes setting sail on a solar-powered boat, bringing a message to a U.N. summit in New York. The journey could take two weeks, but Greta says she doesnt fly because of the environmental impact of air travel.

I base all of my life on what teenage girls think.
They’re clearly the future of science and reason...
Yea, I don't know about all that, but I do know that I've been called the songbird of my generation.
Al Gore will sue!
How many ships and aircraft are following her over?
I’m all burned out on virtue signaling.
It isn’t safe for her to walk alone at night in her home country. Why doesn’t she fix that problem first.
Put her in a cell with the El Paso shooter. They have lots to talk about.
Does this 16 yr old Swedish girl realize her country has been invaded by a horde of Islamic rapists, and that her government’s advice to her is to “behave” and “not go out alone”?
I’ve heard your voice is like a combination of Fergie and Jesus...
She comes to lecture the freest country in the world. When is her trip to China?
As soon as NOW goes to Saudi Arabia.
Oh boy, another Children’s Crusade. And we all know how the first one turned out.
Is she really going to be on the yacht for the 2 week trip ?
“her boat”...the one she built herself from wood from replenished forests, cut and shaped with hand tools, with her own stitched cotton sails (cotton imported from Alabama and picked politically correctly) and spun rope made from her own organically grown hemp?
Or is this the boat Bil Gates and George Soros had built and paid for her?
shut TFU. Another snowflake who thinks they can change the world by wishing and doing the “right” thing. Stay home, grow up and learn what thinking about facts is all about.
And again, STFU!!!
Just saw her on BBC and she said she’s not telling people what to do , LOL
