When Bagging Donald Trump, Greta Does Not Have it in the Bag (by any means)!

Dear Editor,

A Swedish 16-year-old excoriates world leaders, and the world’s most powerful man – President Donald Trump – is attacked for a tweet commenting on the young activist.

As this 16-year-old has chosen to take to the world’s stage and assert her views, you could say she is playing with the big boys. And being on top of your game requires accepting winning and losing, being cheered and being booed. Can this 16-year-old handle all this?  Only time will tell!

And, as history would have it, last century this young girl’s country was the “inventor” of the plastic bag.

Perhaps the strength to excoriate world leaders can be attributed to her excoriating leaders in her homeland for profiting from plastic bags – via tax hikes – rather than banning them, hence the great need for Aussie PM Scott Morrison’s truly laudable mission in urging world leaders to rid the world’s great oceans of the terrible scourge of plastics (including the plastic bag invented last century in Sweden).

Does this young Swedish girl-child “doom & gloom” guru have what it takes to lead the world’s children? If schooling in Sweden is so devoid of teaching history with accuracy as is the case in Australia, I suspect not!
