Unlike Climate Change Predictions, Trump's Greta Thunberg Tweet Ages Well

Time Magazine has named 16-year-old "climate activist" Greta Thunberg as Time's Person of the Year. Thunberg became a hero to the left after she ditched school to protest in front of the Swedish Parliament about climate change. 

An education would help the teenager in immeasurable ways throughout her lifetime, but Thunberg is more concerned that she may have to move her beach towel a couple inches up the shore over the next 60 years. Pick your battles. 

Time interviewed former Vice President Al Gore, who told us the Arctic would be melted by 2013, to tell us how important it is for young people to take part in movements like climate change. 

"Throughout history," Gore said, "many great morally based movements have gained traction at the very moment when young people decided to make that movement their cause." 

People with fully-developed frontal lobes might reason that people who can't get the weather right tomorrow probably shouldn't be trusted to make global predictions 100 years from now. 

Trump called Time's decision to award Thunberg person of the year "ridiculous" and encouraged the activist to "work on her Anger Management problem."

Thunberg has become known for her angry lectures, infamously telling world leaders at the United Nations Climate Summit that they aren't doing enough. 

"People are dying and dying ecosystems are collapsing. We are in the beginning of a mass extinction, and all you can talk about is the money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth," she said. "How dare you!"

Liberals pounced on Trump for bullying a teenager, especially after his wife rebuked a Stanford professor for mentioning her son's name during an impeachment hearing last week. The obvious difference, however, is that Thunberg has made herself a public figure, propped up by left-wing activists and the mainstream media, while Trump's youngest son has not.

Kate Bennett, a CNN reporter, tweeted the following statement from White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham, also pointing out that Barron Trump is not an activist traveling the globe giving speeches. 

Thunberg should heed the president's advice and watch an old fashioned movie, just maybe not The Day After Tomorrow.
