A climate-change denier tried to own Greta Thunberg but it totally backfired
As her profile has risen, so has the tide of abuse levied at the 16-year-old climate activist, Greta Thunberg. Recently, celebrity climate-change denier and Fox News host, Tomi Lahren, aped her hero, Trump, with an unnecessary stab at the teenager.

Apparently, throwing insults at children is a good look in American right-wing circles. Plenty of people tore Lahren’s comment to pieces, like these:
Tomi knows her audience. They're old, angry, petrified of change … and they must be fed. https://t.co/DPhStimUFq

Take a fucking seat and try to figure out who you even are. https://t.co/hls0ApGG4U

Attacking children for standing up for what they believe in? You literally stoop to new lows everyday.

But among those supporting her position was someone called Jim Crocker, who tried to be clever.
He should have tried harder.
Both chicken little and the boy who cried wolf turned out to be right in the end and suffered consequences as a result of people in power not listening
