I heard you mention 16-year-old Greta Thunberg’s supposedly eco-friendly boat trip to New York so she could address the United Nations.
Like almost all climate change stunts, this one is not as environmentally pure as billed.
Apparently, the crew that brought her over to New York flew back to Europe and a new crew will be flying over to NY to bring the boat back.
I’m not sure if Thunberg will be sailing or flying back home now that the photo ops are over.

Fantastic rant from Sky News Australia…
To all the school kids going on strike for climate change: You’re the first generation who’ve required air conditioning in every classroom, you want TV in every room and your classes are all computerized. You spend all day and night on electronic devices. More than ever you don’t walk or ride bikes to school, but you arrive in caravans of private cars that choke suburban roads and worsen rush hour traffic.
You’re the biggest consumers of manufactured goods ever and update perfectly good, expensive luxury items just to stay trendy. Your entertainment comes from electric devices, furthermore the people driving your protests are the same people who insist on artificially inflating the population growth through immigration, which increases the need for energy, manufacturing and transport. The more people we have, the more forests and bush land we clear and the more of the environment that’s destroyed.
How about this, tell your teachers to switch off the air conditioning, walk or ride your bike to school, switch off your devices and read a book, make a sandwich instead of buying manufactured fast food.
Nope, none of this will happen, BECAUSE you’re selfish, badly educated, virtue signaling little turds inspired by the adults around you who crave a feeling of having a Noble Cause while they indulge themselves in western luxury and an unprecedented quality of life.
WAKE UP! GROW UP! AND SHUT UP!

AOC AND THE BLIND GENERATION
This article was written by a 26 yr old college student by the name of Alyssa Ahlgren, who's in grad school for her MBA.
My Generation Is Blind to the Prosperity Around Us!
I'm sitting in a small coffee shop near Nokomis (Florida) trying to think of what to write about. I scroll through my newsfeed on my phone looking at the latest headlines of presidential candidates calling for policies to "fix" the so-called injustices of capitalism. I put my phone down and continue to look around.
I see people talking freely, working on their MacBook's, ordering food they get in an instant, seeing cars go by outside, and it dawned on me. We live in the most privileged time in the most prosperous nation and we've become completely blind to it.
Vehicles, food, technology, freedom to associate with whom we choose.These things are so ingrained in our American way of life we don't give them a second thought.
We are so well off here in the United States that our poverty line begins 31 times above the global average. Thirty One Times!!!
Virtually no one in the United States is considered poor by global standards. Yet, in a time where we can order a product off Amazon with one click and have it at our doorstep the next day, we are unappreciative, unsatisfied, and ungrateful. ??
Our unappreciation is evident as the popularity of socialist policies among my generation continues to grow.Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently said to Newsweek talking about the millennial generation, "An entire generation, which is now becoming one of the largest electorates in America, came of age and never saw American prosperity."
Never saw American prosperity! Let that sink in.
When I first read that statement, I thought to myself, that was quite literally the most entitled and factually illiterate thing I've ever heard in my 26 years on this earth. Many young people agree with her, which is entirely misguided.
My generation is being indoctrinated by a mainstream narrative to actually believe we have never seen prosperity. I know this first hand, I went to college, let's just say I didn't have the popular opinion, but I digress.
Why then, with all of the overwhelming evidence around us, evidence that I can even see sitting at a coffee shop, do we not view this as prosperity? We have people who are dying to get into our country.
People around the world destitute and truly impoverished. Yet, we have a young generation convinced they've never seen prosperity, and as a result, we elect some politicians who are dead set on taking steps towards abolishing capitalism.
Why? The answer is this,?? my generation has only seen prosperity. We have no contrast. We didn't live in the great depression, or live through two world wars, the Korean War, The Vietnam War or we didn't see the rise and fall of socialism and communism.
We don't know what it's like to live without the internet, without cars, without smartphones. We don't have a lack of prosperity problem. We have an entitlement problem, an ungratefulness problem, and it's spreading like a plague."
