Donald Trump mocks teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg

Superstar of the environment and one of the most acclaimed teenagers on planet Earth, Greta Thunberg, is known to fight for what she believes, no matter what the criticism she could get.

Well, again makes the headlines activist of climate change, 16 years old Greta of Sweden, this time to show that she has a great sense of humor and is able to transform the critique of others around and make it a strength. When US President humiliated Monday by sarcastically noting that it “seems to be a very happy young girl forward to a bright and wonderful future,” Greta has this quote and proudly put in his Twitter bio.

Trump’s criticism of the well-known teenager, who is the face of the movement for climate justice, was held a few hours after his speech at the UN on Monday. There Greta sharply criticized the most powerful world leaders for not doing enough to fight against climate change, save the world and ensure a bright future for future generations.

The Greta’s UN speech was welcomed by many who believed that he conveyed the urgency of global warming, but some people accused her of pretending to be outraged for better effect. Teenager’s critics have called a “guru of the Apocalypse”, while others have risen to defend it, pointing out that its objectives are what is best for the world. The girl sailed UN summit across the Atlantic Ocean on a 60 feet (18 meters) long yacht environmentally, the Malizia II with three other people, including his father Svente.

Cheating Can Be More Difficult Than Just Competing

In the 1968 Golden Globe round-the-world yacht race, 36-year-old Donald Crowhurst had a plan: he’d sail a small, plywood trimaran. He had no experience, and his boat was frighteningly flimsy, but he convinced all who listened that he was deadly serious.

The Mercy is a 2017 British biographical drama film, directed by James Marsh and written by Scott Z. Burns. It is based on the true story of the disastrous attempt by the amateur sailor Donald Crowhurst to complete the Sunday Times Golden Globe Race in 1968 and his subsequent attempts to cover up his failure.

Shortly into the race, though, he realized his predicament and determined that his only options were to quit the race or probably die sailing. So, he decided to keep his boat in the South Atlantic Ocean while the other boats raced around the world, and then he’d catch up at the end. He fabricated his reports and his logbooks so it looked like he was winning the race. Eventually, the pressure got to him, as he constructed fake log entries that were “often more difficult to complete than real entries due to the celestial navigation research required.” His ship was later found abandoned – it’s believed he jumped out and drowned.
