Greta Thunberg Hits Back At Aussie Journo For Climate Denial

At just 16 years of age, Swedish teen activist Greta Thunberg is one of the world’s most authoritative names in climate action. So much so that she is about to launch a Climate Action Tour across the Atlantic. But in classic climate denial BS, certain journalists continue to try and take Thunberg down in the media. Case in point: this Herald Sun article written by journalist Andrew Bolt, which was so disrespectful that the 16-year-old has since hit back.  

Thunberg reshared the Herald Sun’s quote, which read: “As the deeply disturbed Greta Thunberg spreads her climate panic, we should ask why so many world leaders are listening to her, writes Andrew Bolt”. To which she replied via Twitter: “I am indeed ‘deeply disturbed’, about the fact that these hate and conspiracy campaigns are allowed to go on and on and on just because we children communicate and act on the science. Where are the adults?”

Where are the adults indeed? “No teenager is more freakishly influential than Greta Thunberg, the deeply disturbed messiah of the global warming movement,” opens Bolt’s disgraceful column, which stoops so low as to mock Thunberg’s autism diagnosis. “I have never seen a girl so young and with so many mental disorders treated by so many adults as a guru,” the journalist continues.

Sadly Bolt is not the first Aussie journo to drag Greta Thunberg, though, with another writing anonymously for The Australian and describing her as a “pig-tailed soothsayer”. Although climate denial is clearly abhorrent in an age where our planet is on the brink of collapse, it is even more disgusting to think that our own local publications would allow this sort of hate commentary to grace their pages.

More power to Greta in her classy hit back to the haters.
