#3 The yacht has no toilet. I'm sure young Greta doesn't sling her own weight. clever shitty pun Greta only poses for the cameras, while publicists take care of the rest. Her parents are examples of 'the elite' of the Ewww. An actor and an opera singer, who are to be commended from a business pov here.

She was unknown outside of her family and school until she started a climate strike last August. She has been diagnosed with Aspergers and has at various times experienced depression, anxiety and selective mutism. Today, however, she has become the spokesperson for the global climate movement and its most recognizable face.

Her Fridays for Future campaign which incites children to skip school strike on Fridays and take to the streets, obstruct traffic and take the brat tantrum to news lows has now mobilized more than a million students across the globe.

Breitbart's scathing critique.
Also , on shameless exploitation of a mentally challenged child, here.

#5 She can see the 0.02% of the atmosphere that's co2 allegedly.

#6 And she "hears voices." The voices sound like Al Gore, George Soros, Tom Steyer and Bill Nye...

#7 What this story needs is a giant squid attack somewhere in the mid-Atlantic. Release the kraken!

#8 IIRC, she is just a passenger; an exclusive Norwegian Cruise Line package.

#9 Do not attack Saint Greta (and of course do not say that she needs a sound spanking) or face death by Twitter.

#10 Maybe Iran could tow them away if everyone gave them a lot of coverage ? What if they meet any of the cousins/suitors of Illhan along the way ?

#12 It's good she's starting a career shilling for gerbil worming... she's never gonna make the Swedish Bikini Team.

#13 Fun fact, To bring the yacht back to Europe (without Greta), five sailors will be flown in from Europe. The current skipper will fly back to Europe as well.

Had Greta and her father taken flights, that would have been 4 flights total, not 6.

It's not even clear yet how Greta will return to Europe. If she has to take a flight (with her father), the total of flights increases.

It's all BS

#14 "Greta's father is arrested when he arrives in the US for violation of child labor laws." Heh, virtue signaling could cut both ways.

#15 Well, it's quite a stretch to call what she does "working".

#17 If you are born with a “serious and concerned” look on your face, might as well take it to the bank.
