DAVOS, Switzerland - Youth climate delegates from around the world are taking part in a "collaborative protest" against the rich and powerful by camping in subzero temperatures at the World Economic Forum.
The annual January get-together - which is often criticized for being out of touch with the real world - is set to welcome more than 3,000 participants this week, with those in attendance poised to focus on the intensifying climate crisis.
"We are just trying to show them that we are doing the right thing despite the fact that we are not sleeping or staying in the best conditions. And, as they are enjoying their first class (flights), they should know that there are people who are actually living in worse conditions," Vanessa Nakate, a climate activist from Uganda, told CNBC on Tuesday.
"So, we are practically representing those people who are already facing the impact of the climate crisis. It is time to get out of our comfort zones," Nakate said.

Science in need of some global warming.
Below Zer0 Celsius?
Maybe the Swedish delegation could Uber in some friendly migrants to help keep you warm with their body heat.
32 degrees sounds fantastic... In Celsius.
The reality is that most of North America is experiencing it’s third long harsh winter in a row... But at the end of the year, it will the ‘warmest’ on record. Their records are made from a secret sauce of computer analysis programmed by believers to achieve a desired outcome. They will relay this desired outcome to Greta and she’ll be very upset.
Right now 29f, -2c. Chilly.
When I was young I played basketball, video games, and tried to get some.
Millennials are such faggots...
Indoctrinated and brain frozen children against the four seasons want to eliminate the polar tilt for global equality. That’s the ticket!
Read your Bibles oh freezing ones.
The End will come as a thief in the night. In an hour you DON’T think it will happen, Jesus will come and the End will occur (Matt 24:42, 44; 1 Thess 5:2; 2 Peter 3:10; Rev 16:15).
Nice tents, arctic clothing, tv with remote, etc. I notice none seems to be wearing gloves and few hats. Tell you what, you kids come back and talk when you camp out using nothing that uses or was produced using fossil fuels.
These kids idolize a pre-industrial revolution fantasy. Some how they think it was all Thomas Kinkaid utopia. I’d like to see them really experience that time. Sorry kids, you have to chop your own firewood and forage for your food. Since you won’t kill or exploit animals, good luck getting the protein you need year-round. Oh, and forget the Ritalin and Xanax and Ambien. Might have some aspirin, might not. No antibiotics. No anesthesia. No vaccines. You can visit the leech doctor though or try a mustard poultice.
The pre-industrial revolution was harsh. Women died in childbirth in alarming numbers. Men died of old age at 45. Probably no more than half of children survived to adulthood. And people like the Sainted Greta would have been confined to an asylum their entire lives. Think you can have the benefits without the costs? Think again.
Have fun snowflakes.
“”So, we are practically representing those people who are already facing the impact of the climate crisis.”
So they’re huddling together in the cold to represent people suffering from global warming? I suppose the mind is the first casualty of the climate crisis.
And their parents let them be used...to save the planet.
I suppose the twisted, warped, eco-wacko mind is the first cause
casualty of the climate crisis.
They said the temperature was below zero, Kelvin. I believe them. They are scientists, after all!
AN entire camp of Bill Ayers wannabes. Round them up and make them disappear.
Yep. I remember being sent to play outside at 20 below zero Kelvin. Mom made me wear a sweater.
I hate it when people call me below zero Kelvin...
“Yep. I remember being sent to play outside at 20 below zero Kelvin. Mom made me wear a sweater.”
Time to turn on the heated vest, socks, seat, and grips on my motorcycle and watch out for ice on corners.
Uganda? I thought they are all born poor. I bet she is freezing her fat butt off! Ha,ha!
