Jeremiah 5:21
Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding;
which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not:

King James Bible


‘We will make them hear us’:
Millions of youths around the world strike for action


The strikes come three days before world leaders are set to gather at the U.N.
for a much-anticipated climate summit

NEW YORK — In one of the largest youth-led demonstrations in history, millions of people from Manhattan to Mumbai took to the streets around the globe on Friday, their chants, speeches and homemade signs delivering the same stern message to world leaders: do more to combat climate change — and do it faster.

Trump mocks teen climate activist

Quote:
16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg: . .
"You are failing us,” she said to the assembled leaders.
“But the young people are starting to understand your betrayal.
The eyes of all future generations are upon you.
And if you choose to fail us, I say: We will never forgive you.“

Trump tweeted:
“She seems like a very happy young girl
looking forward to a bright and wonderful future. So nice to see!“


Trump briefly attended the Climate Action Summit in New York but left after 14 minutes.

The president has consistently expressed skepticism about the notion of man-made climate change,
and his administration has declined to make the issue any sort of priority.

Thunberg acknowledged Trump’s tweet on Tuesday, changing her Twitter biography to read;

A very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future."
