Re: Children's Climate protests.

Even dumber are the UN bigwigs, and the American politicians who sit spellbound in front of a 16 year old as if she is the unique messenger of all things climatic. But then of course at age 16 she certainly would have a deep knowledge of how the world climate functions.
