That is such utter crap. Then again, I don’t remember the last time I actually liked Time’s person of the year. It’s a stupid designation, awarded by stupid people who are employed by rich people with an agenda.

Why not have Hong Kong protesters as persons of the year? Or scientists who discovered lithium batteries (Nobel winners in 2019 - Goodenough, Whittingham, Yoshino) - they have done 1000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 times more than Ms Thurnberg for environment as all electric cars run on their discovery?

But that would require some knowledge and brains, which MSM does not have.

Person of the Year could also have been Va Lt Gov Fairfax. After all, he is the one who single handedly ended the
Me-Too" movement. Fairfax was the Black Dem who was accused of rape by two Dem activist Black women. Right after that, the media and pundits spoke no more of "me-too."

Psychotic children ARE a step up from drunken, bloviating blowhards like Al Gore, and they're cheaper, too!

Meanwhile Al Gore thinks he is still relevant. Doesn't he need Greta's permission to talk about climate change.

In every example, Democrats are significantly more likely to say that they will change their behavior to be more efficient than Republicans.

However...

Aside from the purchase of energy efficient light bulbs, Republicans are just as likely or, at times, significantly more likely to be taking these energy efficient measures in their own lives. Sure, the rationale for making such decisions is likely to be different, but there's more to the story when we consider intent as well as action. What's clear is that consumer choices that impact climate and the environment are motivated by more than moral convictions.

Rich people with political agenda don’t care about real accomplishments. Only left wing mental masturbation speeches.
