• “Young People Have Had Enough”: Global Climate Strike Youth Activists on Why They Are Marching
    Today is the Global Climate Strike, inspired by 16-year-old Swedish activist Greta Thunberg.

    As people took to the streets in Africa, Asia, Europe and Australia, we host a roundtable discussion with youth activists organizing marches in the United States — in New York City, Washington, D.C., and Minneapolis — ahead of next week’s U.N. Climate Action Summit.

    We are joined by Xiye Bastida, a 17-year-old climate justice activist originally from Mexico who is an organizer with Fridays for Future New York and a student at Beacon High School in New York; Katie Eder, a 19-year-old climate justice activist who founded the Future Coalition, where she is currently the executive director; Juwaria Jama, a 15-year-old and first-generation Somali from Minneapolis, Minnesota, who is with U.S. Youth Climate Strikes and is the co-state lead for the Minnesota Youth Climate Strike; and Isra Hirsi, a high school junior and executive director of the U.S. Youth Climate Strike, daughter of Democratic Representative Ilhan Omar; Kelsey Juliana, lead plaintiff in Juliana v. United States, the landmark youth climate lawsuit against the U.S. government; Jerome Foster II, White House Climate Strike organizer, founder and executive director of OneMillionOfUs; and Nasratullah Elham, an Afghan high school student studying in Phuket, Thailand whose visa to the United States was rejected after being invited to the first-ever U.N. Youth Climate Summit.

  • AOC Exposes Climate Deniers Stupidity
    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Greta Thunberg are leading the green movement to save our planet.

    Climate skeptic Bjørn Lomborg has built his global brand on keeping his cool. “Cool it,” his best-selling book told those worried about the warming planet.

    For some reason, however, he seems to have difficulty sticking to the blasé tone when it comes to a 16-year-old climate activist from Sweden.

    Lomborg has repeatedly mocked and criticized Greta Thunberg, the prominent young activist who has been sailing across the Atlantic to attend the UN’s Youth Climate Summit and other meetings in the U.S. In June, he tweeted out a cartoon that implied Greta was only useful to climate activists because being young made her unassailable—in four years, it joked, she’d be replaced with someone younger still.

    Earlier in the year, he’d asked why the World Economic Forum was listening to her at all, and approvingly shared a Quillette article which called Thunberg a fanatic and “absolutist” and which argued adults had a duty to correct her childlike naiveté.

    And Lomborg’s on the more civil end of Thunberg’s critics.

    In April, while tweeting that her policies were “unrealistic” and “costly,” he added that, “of course, she should be treated respectfully, just like all participants in the climate debate.”

    Several of his followers didn’t seem to care for the caveat, attacking Thunberg with comments about her age and mental health in replies.
