Greta Thunberg understands the science of climate change, which is scoffed at by those who don’t understand it. She has been doing what she can to help us prevent a likely climate catastrophe that has already begun. Although Thunberg has won a Nobel Prize and was Time Magazine’s “Person of the Year”, there are lots of people who despise her.
Who despises her? People who don’t understand the science of climate change; and also people with old-fashioned (yet warped) values who believe that “children” ought to keep their mouths shut and never argue with so-called “adults”. (“Greta, be a good little girl and sit quietly while the grownups continue to destroy the planet.”)
Only an idiot would get angry at someone who is trying to save humankind from extinction. Unfortunately, there are a lot of idiots.
