“… **it is impossible to live sustainably today, and that needs to change.”** Probably the most sensible thing I heard in a while.


I’m sure this comment thread won’t be toxic at all….


I don’t know anything about climate change, and I have a really dumb question that I hope someone could answer. If there was never any human produced greenhouse gasses, what would the world / climate be like compared to how it is today?


My opinion is going to be unpopular here but I just don’t see how this girl is sending a convincing message, she is from one of the most wealthy country, probably never know hunger and poverty, traveling around in a sail boat that most people can not afford, telling the world, including many poor and starving people in the 3rd world that they need to cut back, may be I am disconnected but I just don’t get it. Edit: Thanks for the gold & silver kind strangers.


The CNN announcement video of her departure was disgusting. The comments were almost unanimously hopes for a child’s death.
