But her main message seems to be: Listen to the experts/scientists when it comes to climate change and what we should be doing about it. Who can disagree with that advice? Scientist across the globe are pretty much all saying the same things about climate change. I guess mocking Greta is easier than facing some uncomfortable truths?
Maybe she should listen to the experts because given her rhetoric she obviously doesn't.

I mean they gave it to Obama and Yassir Arafat so it's meaning has lost any significance.

We can however make gains in better tech advances and change the other much larger contributors to greenhouse emissions. All the while not bringing economic doomsday, might be some shared sacrifice but worth it.
I'm concerned about flight shaming among other things. Not sure if you've been watching these debates on TV but I have, and a good number of the candidates and their supporters oppose even nuclear energy as an alternative to fossil fuels. These people run for office and they vote. That to me is not something that should be ignored.

Thatís fair to be concerned, we have plenty of things to keep our eyes on - greedy corporate managers, union busting politicians, regional conflicts/wars, automation advances, etc. I just donít think it warrants the level of concern as others do. Within Europe a bit more so, but here in States we donít have the rail infrastructure to support much of a movement away from flying. Just isnít feasible. People are going to keep flying international only a handful wonít go because of so called flight shaming or personal tree hugging reasons. Wonít be enough to impact business and maybe even open a few more seats for us lowly nonrevs.
