Greta Thunberg’s tactics

Above all, Greta Thunberg said on BBC radio, convincing politicians to make the policy changes necessary to protect the Earth for future generations—instead of remaining beholden to fossil fuel corporations—will take an engaged global citizenry.

“Read up. Inform yourself about the actual science and situation,” she said. “Be an active democratic citizen. Of course to vote, but also to be active, because democracy is not only on election day, it’s happening all the time.”

Trump attacked Greta for Time Mag. award

“Trump targeted Ms. Thunberg after Time magazine named her its person of the year. “So ridiculous,” Mr. Trump said on Twitter. “Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill!” The Trump campaign also distributed a doctored image of a Time cover with the president’s head superimposed on Ms. Thunberg’s body.”
