OP ED: James “JB” Bryson- I find it so crazy that “any” leader, can find “any” issue with what this young lady has done to promote conversation over climate change. When most “tweens” are wondering what is happening with the Jonas Brothers or the newest PlayStation game, this one is speaking to the UN. We need to foster this type of child as opposed to lamenting over if we agree or disagree with what they promote. Disagreement is the pillar of discussion, and through discussion comes change. I am proud of this young woman. Watch her speech on this link and tell me that she should just “relax” and go watch a “movie”? What an absolute DICK!!

Quickly, the teenager ironic about the president’s statement by updating her biography on her Twitter account: “A teenager working on her anger management problem. Currently relaxing and watching a good movie with a friend. ”
Trump’s statement came after the magazine honored 16-year-old Thunberg on Wednesday, who last year launched the so-called “school weather strike” or “Friday for the future,” a protest against warming global that has since become a worldwide movement that led her to be a possible candidate for the Nobel Prize.
The activist became known for her fiery speeches towards world leaders, and on Wednesday, in Madrid, she accused rich countries of “cheating” people by making them believe they are taking significant measures against climate change .

In what has been perhaps his most iconic appearance, he stood before world leaders at a UN climate summit in September and told them: “How dare you?, Criticizing them for not taking measures to stop the runaway global warming .
Her rhetoric, youth and diagnosis of Asperger’s syndrome, a mild form of autism, have made her a frequent target of critics.
