Greta Thunberg Born

Greta Thunberg (born January 3, 2003, in Stockholm, Sweden) is a Swedish environmental activist who has fought to combat global warming. She started the Fridays for Future campaign in 2018. (also called School Strike for Climate).

Greta was diagnosed with Asperger syndrome, a kind of autism classified as a spectrum condition (ASD). It is defined by impairments in social situations (like typical autism) but normal intellect and development of language. Asperger syndrome causes people to hyperfocus on a single topic or interest. Thunberg’s focus was climate change. She first became aware of the problem when she was around eight, and within a few years, she had changed her life. For example, she became a vegan and refused to fly. Animals and airplanes both contribute to global warming by emitting enormous amounts of greenhouse gasses.

Thunberg sought to persuade parliamentarians to address climate change to have a bigger effect. She skipped school for over three weeks leading up to the Swedish election in September 2018 to camp outside parliament with a sign reading “Skolstrejk för Klimatet” (School Strike for Climate). Despite being alone on the first day, she was joined by many people each day after that, and her story gained attention worldwide.

After the election, Thunberg returned to her classes. She did, however, continue to strike on Fridays. This became known as Fridays for Future. Many thousands of students worldwide were inspired by her action and decided to hold their own Fridays for Future.

Thunberg was recognized for increasing awareness of Asperger’s syndrome and encouraging individuals who had the illness, in addition to her environmental activities. While she acknowledged that Asperger’s has impeded her in certain areas, she also highlighted its benefits, tweeting at one point: “I have Aspergers, and that means I’m sometimes a bit different from the norm. And—given the right circumstances—being different is a superpower.”

  1. I’m sure the progressive activists gathered the second day. I’m sure it was a planned performance. I’m sure she was elected as the poster child for the left. Not buying it. All they want is $$$$$$$. Have to keep employed someway and sustain funding for the progressives.

  2. She is also a child under the wings of adults with no idea of financial problems . Example doesn’t work for a living has comfort from her little child’s bedroom no real idea of how it all works. As I write this I’m creating green house gases. This child needs a good lesson of life before she opens her trap .🤣

  3. It’s sad, really, that some adults look to children like Greta Thunberg for their intellectual guidance. She’s not been alive for two decades, yet many older and ostensibly wiser adults hold her up as some sort of guru to be followed with cult-like adulation.

    If I could gain audience with Greta or one of her cultists, I should like to ask her where she gets her “climate change” data from, and how it makes her so sure that mankind is to blame for rising global temperatures, if that is indeed the case.

    The earth has been going through natural climate change variations since it was formed, and will continue to do so for as long and the planet exists. These variations are called Milankinovitch Cycles and, due to the earth’s orbital eccentricity, the climate cycles between warmer and cooler every 100,000 years or so. Thus the last great Ice Age that caused the northern hemisphere of the planet to be completely covered in a thick ice sheet only 50,000 years ago, when there were very few humans inhabiting the planet

    Some climate scientists, not financially tied to keeping the manmade climate change theory in the forefront, are actually predicting the planet to cool in the next millennia, when the cycle will again return to a cooling phase.

    We do have problems that we need to address in order to make the planet inhabitable for future generations, the most dire being overpopulation and natural resource waste, but we will not be able to control the earth’s climate cycles no matter how much industrial countries are taxed and the money funneled to the Al Gores, political “leaders”, climate scientists, and Greta Thunbergs (parents) of the world.

  4. Poor girl, she lives in a world of emotions and visions created by them but knows nothing about climate changes and what causes them, not mentioning a scale of the natural phenomenons affecting global climate changes and a negligible anthropological contribution. Besides, there is no correlation between the changes in atmospheric CO2 and gradient of temperature increase. Highest rate of global temperature increase was till 1938, and it decrease later till know in spite of many times increased industrial and other human caused emission.
    Green movement is a new religion which as any other is not based on science but believing in it. The corrupted by funding expected results “scientists”, massage data fed to their computer models to produce nearly perfect results, providing that next financing will be secured for even better (desired) confirmation. Nothing new. Hitler had scientists proving that killing Jews and Slaves is good, as Stalin scientists were proving superiority of communist system over western type democracy. Sounds familiar? Good day!

  5. This girl is clearly challenged by mental deficits in one way or another, but her disability is being deliberately manipulated. She is being used and abused by her inept mentally challenged communist parents. What they and the leftist freaks in society and the fake climate change movement have done to her is child abuse and someday those defiled chickens will come home to roost.
