Greta Thunberg back in the news

She’s baaaack! 

In the middle of a global pandemic and the worst economic downturn since the 1930s, who is the mainstream media consulting?

Greta Thunberg, the teenage daughter of two politically connected Swedish celebrities. That’s who.

Thunberg dropped off the media’s radar for a while. When no one is flying, driving, or manufacturing anything, the whole fossil fuel issue suddenly becomes a lot less timely, doesn’t it?.

But the mainstream media really, really loves this kid. So over the past few days, we’ve had headlines like this:

Earth Day: Greta Thunberg calls for ‘new path’ after pandemic

Teen activist Greta Thunberg is now a fashion icon, whether she likes it or not

Fashion icon? For whom? Speak for yourself on this one, please. 

All I can say is: There will be no Greta Thunberg tee shirts in my wardrobe. The rest of you are free to do as you’d like, of course.
