Greta Thunberg, the (now) 16-year old who spoke truth to power at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in December, is at the World Economic Forum in Davos after riding a train from Sweden for 32 hours, shunning a flight as too carbon intensive. Again she sounded like the only adult in the room, and again she told it like it is:
About 1,500 private jets flew to Switzerland for the Davos conference.

Today about 35,000 students in Brussels skipped school to gather as "youth for climate." Thunberg started the first school strike in Sweden just in August of last year, by herself.

At this rate she's going to win the Nobel Peace Prize in a few years. (I'm not kidding; I have half a mind to nominate her myself. But I don't qualify.) This is one very brave kid person.
