Greta Thunberg burst onto the climate alarmism scene back in 2019 as the precocious, youthful face of global warming activism of the future.
Thunberg’s claim to fame was her scowl, and her over-acting disdain for “boomers” and the like, who she claimed weren’t doing enough to combat the coming climate crisis. Her snarling “how dare you” speech, which came just moments before an iconic, (and possibly staged), photograph of her sneering in the general direction of US President Donald Trump cemented her fandom among the radical left. This granted Thunberg easy access to the media whenever and wherever she liked.
Unfortunately, this newfound fame hasn’t provided her any immunity from critics, some of whom frequent the White House.
U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin took time Thursday to advise Swedish climate worrier Greta Thunberg to attend college and study economics before telling others how to manage the planet’s resources.
“Does Greta Thunberg’s call for an end to fossil fuel investment threaten U.S. economic growth?” a member of the press asked.
“Is she the chief economist or who is she? I’m confused,” Mnuchin said, before adding this was clearly “a joke. That was funny.”
“After she goes and studies economics in college she can come back and explain that to us,” was Mnuchin’s succinct summation as he elaborated further.
Mnuchin would go on to explain that he himself drove a Tesla when he lived in California, but reminded reporters that the environmental impact of creating the lithium ion batteries used to propel electric vehicles is far from “clean”, in terms of energy.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
