Basically transcripts of Ms. Thunberg's speeches from late 2018 to early 2019.
A call to action, it makes me want to stand up against the global businesses and politicians who are failing to act on climate change.

Young people such as Greta give me hope for the future, what an amazing person she is! She really speaks clearly about the significance of climate change and why action can no longer wait.

Greta is a wonderful role model for today's youth!

Mustang (previous comment) must be one of the uneducated that trump loves so much. Another idiot climate change denier. Maybe Mustang should be more worried about Barron trump than Greta . After all Barron's daddy was banging a porn star while his mom (who is a glorified prostitute) was giving birth to him.

Little Greta's parents are divorced and her mother was always traveling and never around. So naturally when she reaches the age of puberty she doesn't understand what's happening and no one is there to explain it to her, thus she gets all confused and angry. So...she blames it on Global Warming. Which is, of course, all Trump's fault.
Yep, little Greta's puberty is all Trump's fault.
Go figure.
You'll never win against Prog logic....

I'm on her side, but having to listen to her is like being scolded by Lisa Simpson.

I am not a climate change denier, just the opposite, but I also attempt to keep well-versed in sciences and financial matters - - too often such issues are co-opted by the elites to profit themselves, while witless and clueless types easily fall for their machinations of greed. The cap-and-trade scam originated out of the Reagan Administration quite some time ago [believe it came from the Heritage Foundation originally, but don't recall the details so may be incorrect] and has been addressed as such by various GAO reports and Euro/progressive reports, et cetera. For some reason, this kid really annoys me - - either her sense of righteousness, or her potential to profit those types who always end up doing the aforesaid co-opting . . . .

Consists of her speeches but also explains how she got involved. I always thought her parents must be stupendously enlightened to let their teenager do this, especially on a world stage, but Greta says that they originally weren't in favor so she did it herself.

StarGladiator: Maybe you are just reacting to her self-righteousness because it clashes with your own?? She is a 16 year old Autistic kid who, whether you appreciate what she is doing or not, has managed to single-handledly draw attention to a problem that esteemed scientist James Hansen of NASA has been trying to get people to believe in since the 1980's. Maybe Hansen is the better scientist, but she is the better draw. If I take what you wrote in your review, I would suggest that you are saying no one should do anything in case it contributes to green-washing.
In my belief, that is a nonstarter.
