Climate change activist Greta Thunberg is a force so powerful that Fox News has
finally started taking her seriouslyas the enemy of children everywhere.
Fox & Friends invited climate change denier Marc Morano onto Mondays show
following the international climate change strike on Friday, during which
communities across the globe skipped work and school to demand their governments
act on climate change. Morano, a former aide to fellow climate change denier
Sen. Jim Inhofe, was quick to demonize 16-year-old Thunberg, characterizing her
work as the very thing Fox News is known for: a message of fear.
What is it about [Thunberg] that has interested so many young people? host
Steve Doocy asked Morano.
Well, she sells fear. Greta Thunberg started in Sweden every Friday outside the
Swedish parliament and it spreadto skip school in order to have a future,
Morano said. In other words, shes actually said...why should kids go to school
if they have a future that will be no more unless government passes laws like
the Green New Deal, more U.N. treaties.
Morano detailed anecdotes of children becoming more anxious at the idea of
climate change ruining their futureswhich, same!!!
She is the Greta Effect, Morano said. Shes causing and instilling fear in
millions of kids.
Host Ainsley Earhardt went on to accuse the children who participated in the
protest of doing so because of peer pressure, while Morano insisted that a Gen-Z
protest to skip school wouldnt be nearly as effective as a protest that has
them giving up social media or their smartphonesbecause it wouldnt be Fox News
without some Baby Boomer-pandering nonsense about kids and all their apps these
If you really want to protest, do something challenging, Morano said. Why
would you skip school? Thats an easy thing for any kid to do. Not as easy as
being a grown-ass man smearing a teenager on Fox News, apparently.
