Macron Slams Greta Thunberg After Teenage Activist Sues France Over Climate – But Leaves Out China


French President Emmanuel Macron slammed Greta Thunberg after the 16-year-old climate activist filed a legal complaint accusing five countries of inaction on global warming in violation of the 30-year-old UN Convention on the Rights of a Child. Germany, France, Brazil, Argentina and Turkey.

Notably, she left out China – which is the world’s worst polluter by total volume.

After browbeating the UN for ‘stealing her childhood‘ on Monday, Thunberg tweeted “Today at 11:30 I and 15 other children from around the world filed a legal complaint against 5 nations over the climate crisis through the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.”

Thunberg’s complaint calls out nations that have ratified the UN treaty, yet – according to her – have not upheld their obligations. And again, she’s said nothing about pollution from China or India.

In response to the Swedish activist, French President Emmanuel Macron told Eruope1 that her stance was “very radical” and likely to “antagonize societies.” 

“All the movements of our youth — or our not-so-young — are helpful,” said Macron, adding “But they must now focus on those who are furthest away, those who are seeking to block the way.”

The head of state stressed that he didn’t feel “that the French government nor the German government, currently, were blocking the way.”

Macron also said he wanted young people to “help us put pressure on those who are blocking the way” and to “partake in very clear action.” –Business Insider

President Trump, meanwhile, appears to be having fun with the whole thing.

  1. Only the Progressives, ravenously desperate desire to move their cause forward, would the World to listen to & believe what a 16 year old child opines of the weather conditions & if there is or not climate change! IT’S NUTS!

    • Little Greta loses all credibility by giving a pass to China, the world’s biggest emitter of carbon gas. It’ so typical of leftists to attack Capitalists countries while giving a pass to socialists.
      Little Greta may have a future in ‘Swedish Erotica’….the new Seka…..

  2. Vague and very emotional. Who are suffering and dying from ‘climate change’? Which ecosystems are collapsing in front of our eyes due to the climate?
    Why isn’t The State of Florida not under water?

    • The reason Florida is not under water is because they have
      learned 2 utilize their natural resources. IE:All the blowhard hotair population (SOCOM?REGRESSIVES) have been dispatched 2 the shore. Thus when they open their mouths (24/7) they keep the ocean/sea/gulf from overflowing.

  3. A spoiled, whiny teenager, smart enough to pull this stunt with the help of piss poor parenting and liberal indoctrination. Her future and dreams are wrecked, but can travel, write, has nice clothes, and obviously educated to her age! Her future depends on her attitude, right now it’s in the toilet by her wn choice! When she pays taxes, and has a job she may get a dose of reality!

    • A job? She will never have a job! She is mentally ill and at best will end up in the asylum wearing diapers and being tube fed. She also has a sister which is even worse nut job than this one – the mother talks about them both in her book. The parents most definitely decided to cash out on their genetically deformed children and skillfully found willing sponsors – Chinese or, rather, western progressive billionaires-scoundrels (the Chinese don’t waste their money on such BS, they build aircraft carriers and artificial islands…). At worst these two abused children will be used up and thrown away as being soiled diapers themselves.

  4. Greta is indeed mentally ill, she is autistic. Her mother has written a book describing how difficult it is for the family to meet the needs of an autistic child. Her parents AND the Liberals should be ashamed of exploiting a mentally ill child to do their dirty work! It is sickening.

  5. This little girls parents and handlers should be ashamed, what they have done to this poor handicapped child is a crime. They have indoctrinated and brain washed this poor child until she is filled with hatred and venom. Just look at her face while she was speaking, her facial expressions show that she is mentally challenged. I feel sorry for this kid because once she has served her purpose her handlers and the liberal loons will kick her to the crub.She is a shill and she not her parents or her handlers will have to live with the consequences.

  6. She is a sixteen year old surrogate of George Soros! She is not an innocent little girl being abused by the world. I’m sure she and her parents are being well taken care of monetarily. So that makes her bought and paid for!

  7. Stunning that the basis of this alleged complaint is the Treaty or Convention on the Rights of the Child. Good grief. As one of a number of activists in the 1980’s working to get the UN to sponsor and nation members to sign this important Treaty (all did except the USA), I can report that the contents of the Treaty are all about the welfare of children, being treated without neglect and banning abuse of all kind. Quite a leap here, Greta’s handlers, to imagine that the Treaty covers environmental/climate concerns caused by pollution, industrialization, overpopulation and other matters outside the hands of an ordinary person. Why did Greta fail to sue the Roman Catholic Church which is almost single-handedly responsible for most of the overpopulation? Why isn’t Greta suing because humans only cut trees down and fail to plant? Oh, that’s right, Greta’s parents do nothing to counter climate change.

  8. Thomas Jefferson, who penned our Declaration of Independence,

    “When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation….

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.—That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness… it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.****
