Teen climate activist Greta Thunberg couldn’t name one of President Joe Biden’s climate policies when pressed on why she believed they weren’t aggressive enough.
Thunberg came out against Biden’s administration this week, after endorsing him during the 2020 presidential election against Republican incumbent Donald Trump.
The one-time media darling slammed the new Democrat president for ignoring “the science” on climate change.
“You should rather look at the science and whether his policies are in line with the Paris agreements and to stay below 1.5 or even 2 degrees Celsius, and then you can clearly see that, no, it’s not nearly enough in line with the science,” she told MSNBC. “That’s not me saying—that’s just black and white, looking at the facts.”
But when asked if there was a specific policy she disagreed with or a specific policy Biden needs to implement, Thunberg couldn’t come up with an answer.
“Is there a specific policy, or if he rang you up and said, ‘Greta, what should I do? I can wave a presidential magic wand executively. What should I do that I’m not?’ What would you say to him?” MSNBC host Mehdi Hasan asked.
“Well, nothing, because that’s not democratic,” Thunberg replied.
“I mean, an elected leader cannot do anything without support from voters,” she continued. “And I would not want anyone to do anything that would not have the support because that would be undemocratic—and democracy is the most precious thing that we have and we must not risk that.”
Despite the warnings frequently hyped by leftist climate activists that the world may have only 12 years or less until total climate-induced destruction, Thunberg concluded that the top priority for now was not to take immediate action, but rather to win hearts and minds in support of the lucrative cause.
“So, what we need now is to raise awareness and create public opinion to treat the crisis like a crisis,” she said.
