CBS Claims Radical Climate Teen ‘Stares Down’ Trump, She Was Behind Him

Listen to the Article!

Of course, the liberal media heaped praise onto the teenage prop they had driven to hysterics with their fearmongering. Radical climate activist Greta Thunberg threw a temper tantrum at the United Nations on Monday where she claimed the world ruined her childhood, and threatened her opponents, and made faces at President Trump’s back. It was that later action that the CBS Evening News falsely suggested was some sort of faceoff with Trump that had him backing down.

During the opening teases for the CBS Evening News, fill-in anchor and Face the Nation moderator Margaret Brennan echoed the leftist social media posts of Now This by declaring: “They say a picture is worth 1,000 words. A teenage climate activist stares down the President at the U.N.

Back in reality, there was no such stare-down between Swedish national Thunberg and President Trump. CBS’s own clip showed Trump walking into the U.N. with Thunberg beyond him and never in his line of sight, but the camera picked up Thunberg childishly scowling as he passed.

“At the U.N. today, teen climate activist Greta Thunberg blasted world leaders for inaction to stop climate change. In her speech, Thunberg warned politicians that they are failing to protect the planet,” Brennan touted during the segment. “Social media lit up over this shot of Thunberg glaring at President Trump as he arrived at the U.N.

 

 

CBS also hyped a new climate alarmist report the U.N. was set to release in the coming days. According to CBS correspondent Mark Phillips, “the report is the gloomiest prediction thus far” with the U.N. claiming we’ve gone over “so many tipping points”:

The final wording of U.N.’s next climate report is being worked on overnight in this building, but it's expected to say that the ice in the Arctic and Antarctica is melting far more quickly than was feared.

Not only that, global warming is so advanced, so many tipping points may have been passed that some of the more severe consequences of global warming may now be inevitable. Among the cited consequence, rising sea levels that displace hundreds of millions of people from coastal areas, increased numbers of destructive storms, devastated fish stocks, and even reduced supplies of drinking water.

(Ten years ago, Phillips pulled a stunt as he had water up to his neck and then over his head  to illustrate the feared impact of rising sea levels: “The Maldives have become the canary in the global-warming coal mine.”)

There was similar praise for the radical climate activist on ABC’s World News Tonight when sensationalist anchor David Muir called Thunberg’s speech “a remarkable address at the United Nations climate action summit tonight.”

“16-year-old activist Greta Thunberg making some of her most impassioned remarks, furious at leaders for, in her words, failing to act on greenhouse gas emissions, leaving the damage to her generation,” he continued.

Of course, none of the networks dared to share the most radical parts of her screed before the U.N. In one such portion of her address, Thunberg threatened her opposition. “We will not let you get away with this. Right here, right now is where we draw the line. The world is waking up and change is coming whether you like it or not,” she proclaimed.

DAVID MUIR: And a remarkable address at the United Nations climate action summit tonight. 16-year-old activist Greta Thunberg making some of her most impassioned remarks, furious at leaders for, in her words, failing to act on greenhouse gas emissions, leaving the damage to her generation. Here's what she told world leaders gathered at the U.N.

GRETA THUNBERG: This is all wrong. I shouldn't be up here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean. Yet, you all come to us young people for hope. How dare you.

MUIR: And after her appeal, this moment making news. Thunberg seen in the lobby as the spotlight then shifted back to President Trump. The President early in his administration took the U.S. out of the Paris climate accord.

MARGARET BRENNAN: They say a picture is worth 1,000 words. A teenage climate activist stares down the President at the U.N.

6:40:40 p.m. Eastern

BRENNAN: A new U.N. report sounds an alarm about the planet's failing health. It will be released in Monaco. And our Mark Phillips is there tonight with more on what's being called the most dire U.N. climate report ever.

MARK PHILLIPS: The final wording of U.N.’s next climate report is being worked on overnight in this building, but it's expected to say that the ice in the Arctic and Antarctica is melting far more quickly than was feared.

Not only that, global warming is so advanced, so many tipping points may have been passed that some of the more severe consequences of global warming may now be inevitable. Among the cited consequence, rising sea levels that displace hundreds of millions of people from coastal areas, increased numbers of destructive storms, devastated fish stocks, and even reduced supplies of drinking water.

The report is the gloomiest prediction thus far of the U.N.'s panel, which warns that if global emissions of greenhouse gasses are not reduced, the consequences will be even worse. Margaret?

BRENNAN: Thanks. At the U.N. today, teen climate activist Greta Thunberg blasted world leaders for inaction to stop climate change. In her speech, Thunberg warned politicians that they are failing to protect the planet.

GRETA THUNBERG: We are in the beginning of a mass extinction, and all you can talk about is money and fairytales of eternal economic growth. How dare you.

BRENNAN: Social media lit up over this shot of Thunberg glaring at President Trump as he arrived at the U.N.
