As a woman, this angers me. As a human being, this disgusts me. The fact that a representative of a company is okay with the idea of promoting sexual assault on anyone and sees that it is totally fine just shows how sickening some of those in power truly are. Greta’s response was pure class. She didn’t take it personally. Instead, she used it to remind people of what she truly stands for.
They are starting to get more and more desperate…

Someone drew a cartoon image of Greta Thunberg being raped in a violent fashion, added their company logo, and printed it. And many of those who support Trump and are against climate change are supportive of this — men and women.
Climate Leviathan: A Political Theory of Our Planetary Future
by Joel Wainwright and Geoff Mann
How climate change will affect our political theory—for better and worse. Despite the science and the summits, leading capitalist states have not achieved anything close to an adequate level of carbon mitigation. There is now simply no way to prevent the planet breaching the threshold of two degrees Celsius set by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. What are the likely political and economic outcomes of this? Where is the overheating world heading? Available On Amazon
Upheaval: Turning Points for Nations in Crisis

The result is a book epic in scope, but also his most personal book yet. Available On Amazon
Global Commons, Domestic Decisions: The Comparative Politics of Climate Change
by Kathryn Harrison et al
Comparative case studies and analyses of the influence of domestic politics on countries' climate change policies and Kyoto ratification decisions. Climate change represents a “tragedy of the commons” on a global scale, requiring the cooperation of nations that do not necessarily put the Earth's well-being above their own national interests. And yet international efforts to address global warming have met with some success; the Kyoto Protocol, in which industrialized countries committed to reducing their collective emissions, took effect in 2005 (although without the participation of the United States).
