      Greta Thunberg and her cohorts are ready to change the world – and that scares a certain kind of man

      Tue 1 Oct 2019 09.09 EDTLast modified on Tue 1 Oct 2019 09.11 EDT

      The president of the United States openly mocked a teenage girl. After dismissing the 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg in person and earning her ire, he tweeted to his 65 million followers: “She seems like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future. So nice to see!”

      Dismissive. Sarcastic. Mocking. Utterly typical. Is anyone surprised?

      The Republican party has a teenage girl problem. And Thunberg knows what’s up. On Monday, she gave an impassioned and emotional speech at the climate summit in New York.

      “You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words,” she said. “The eyes of all future generations are upon you. And if you choose to fail us, I say we will never forgive you. We will not let you get away with this. Right here, right now is where we draw the line.”
