Greta is Time Person of the Year

Climate activist (and vegan) Greta Thunberg is Time Magazine 2019 Person of the Year.

She has done great work. I do hope that her family is doing enough to protect her from the stresses and dangers of all this.

Her activist parents have been abusing their daughter for political and financial gain.
Greta speaks the way she does due to her Asperger's disorder and I hope her diet helps her condition, but
let's not confuse food choices with political positions.

Please do some research. Don't believe the right-wing talking points about her. She (and her parents) donate all the proceeds from her work to charities. They do not abuse her. And blaming Asperger's for her concerns shows an astonishing lack of knowledge about Asperger's (or even autism). If you truly believe what you've posted, then by all means post some reliable sources.

Lastly, be assured that my lifestyle choices (including what I eat) are entirely political. Kindness and respect have become political, as are the issues regarding pollution, environmental devastation and degradation, and so on. I suspect this is true for most vegetarians and vegans. Yes, there are many whose veg*ism is only about health, but health, too, is a political issue.

Agree very hard with Citrus333. If you don't think food choices are political, you have a level of privilege that allows you to believe that, or you live in some kind of bubble. MY veganism is a means to boycott industries and practices that I don't support, to the best I can personally accomplish.

It's a great news. We should do all possible to protect our environment. I also think that the spread of nuclear technology and nuclear weapons is a huge problem for national security and the safety of the entire planet. I read that the waste from nuclear technology is extremely dangerous. I even bought radiation detector at https://ecotestgroup.com/press/blog/...-for-home-use/ for my house that can detect gamma radiation. These devices serve as a screen test for any scrap metal.
