“Children are a handy tool.

The United States sent the UN a formal notice of withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement, although a decision in principle was taken by trump in 2017. Then and now this decision is a protest both inside the United States, and the world leaders. First, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that this act will complicate relations between the two countries, and now the Minister of economic cooperation and development of Germany Gerd Muller noted that this decision is a step backwards in the protection of international nature. From the world leaders Mr. trump shrugs easily. Who-who, and the President of the United States from the first days of the presidency looks at the rest of the world from the top down. And all anything, but two years ago, the world has not heard about angry Greta.
No matter what anyone said, and Greta Thunberg — child is unique. Thousands of schoolchildren skip lessons, but only the Swedish girl makes it so meaningful, with tears and cold fury. In her hands the fate of our planet, suffocating from the excess of carbon dioxide, which continues to emit oil and gas giants, ruthless owners of coal mines, and automobile magnates.
I think many of us have seen the picture of Greta, Sizzling gaze of the odious politician of our time and coincidentally the head of the most powerful country in the world Donald trump. Trump even during his election campaign became an absentee opponent, Greta and the entire progressive world, since the old man does not believe in man-made causes of global warming. By the way, this claim (that human activity is the main cause of the steady increase in temperature on the planet) — a rare case of a broad consensus of scientists worldwide.
Three years ago slightly less than half of the voting population of the United States chose tycoon as their President. In these three years, the second half of the voters can not depart from shock. It is worth remembering that the Republican States are leaders in CO₂ emissions to the atmosphere, and this means that trump is the candidate of the oil and gas producers and miners. He immediately began to play the card of the prejudice of American interests. The Paris climate agreement — a framework agreement on reducing emissions of carbon dioxide — he called the cause of the loss of millions of jobs. The theory of global warming — Chinese fiction in the struggle for world domination.
In a year the United States will cease to be associated largely declarative commitments to limit emissions. In a year — and it’s a funny coincidence — Americans can choose a different President.
In fairness I must say that dozens of major U.S. companies like Facebook, Apple, Microsoft and Google, have signed an open letter against the country’s withdrawal from this agreement, and the several States created the American climate Alliance and undertook to execute the terms of the agreement despite the actions of Washington.
Meanwhile, Greta Thunberg continues its struggle for the preservation of peace on both sides of the Atlantic. She met with the famous ecoactivists Leonardo DiCaprio — and how can you not remember the quote from “Django unchained”: “the Lord at first, you aroused my curiosity, now you have my attention!” This ability to attract attention from Greta did not take away.
The next celebrity on her hit list, where, incidentally, was also the Pope, was a former Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger. And Greta herself has become a celebrity and looking angry eyes even with the cardboard pictures on the tables with plastic cups in coffee shops.
Children is a handy tool. We are all ready to sacrifice everything for the welfare of children, and we the Soviet schoolchildren at the time were filled with the desire to help the children of Africa. Today, the Swedish child reads a heartfelt speech at the UN General Assembly and takes in his hands the fate of all the other children on the planet Earth. A double blow — not otherwise. And now the Minister of environmental transformation of Spain, Teresa Ribera offers assistance in paying of flights Greta Thunberg in Chile — at the December UN climate summit. There is no school — the future of the planet is much more important.
Witnessing the battle between 16-year-old Greta Thunberg and 73-year-old Donald trump, and time exactly on the side of the young activists. I have no doubt that we’ll see her in Chile, and trump will probably ignore this event. America first — that’s one of the key messages of the President who wants to stay for a second term not less than to avoid impeachment during the first. I have no doubt that another non-public motto for the elderly Donald is an old French saying “After us the deluge!” (or any other consequence of global warming). After all, when the climate gets really bad? But elections are next year!
