But back to Greta. Is this type of sensationalism helpful? Does she not recognize that the technological advances she's railing against allowed her to be born into such privilege that she can fear the Climate Crisis to the level she does? That her niche compromises to environmentalism are rather extreme and unrealistic for vast swaths of the world?

Some find her inspirational, I find her shrill and condescending. And condescending from an unearned spot.

Young people can be idealistic, because they've never actually faced the realities on an adult life.
I agree. Basically chalk on a blackboard.
