Greta Thunberg Busted For Misleading Mindless Followers About Her Train Ride
Poor Greta Thunberg. The 16-year-old Swedish climate activist renowned for skipping school and accusing world leaders of “doing nothing,” allegedly had to travel in a little less comfort than what she is used to on her way home from the UN Climate Conference in Madrid and tweeted about it:Tweet for twits, complete with image:
“Traveling on overcrowded trains through Germany. And I’m finally on my way home!”

Deutsche Bahn, Germany’s state railway company, however, had this to say:
“Dear #Greta, thank you for supporting our railway in the fight against climate change! We are happy that you travelled with us in the ICE 174. And that with 100 percent eco electricity. It would have been even better if you had also mentioned how friendly and competent the team looked after you in your seat in First Class.”Greta had a seat in First Class. First Class Yacht Trips. First Class Global Travel all the way...
And you? I can tell you, I'm not that privileged. With that much wealth. Or that giant "carbon footprint" ! Poor Greta? Clearly not.
Liebe #Greta, danke, dass Du uns Eisenbahner im Kampf gegen den Klimawandel unterstützt! Wir haben uns gefreut, dass Du am Samstag mit uns im ICE 74 unterwegs warst. Und das mit 100 Prozent Ökostrom. 1/2— Deutsche Bahn AG (@DB_Presse) December 15, 2019
Ouch.Yah, she was on the floor long enough to take a picture and send it out to the gullible. Then she headed straight to her first class seat and enjoyed all the perks that went along with first class travel
This seems to suggest that Thunberg is willing to bend the truth to suit her agenda, although, the day after—after a backlash on Twitter—she made clear that she had only been on the floor for part of her journey, and that overcrowded trains were in fact a “great sign because that means that the demand for train travel is high!”
Although many wished Greta a good journey home, there was plenty of criticism, too, not just directed towards the activist, but towards Deutsche Bahn for poor service, and for disclosing that she had indeed been travelling with them (even if Greta had tweeted about her journey before DB replied to her on Twitter).
If one cares to read the entire article you will notice that Jeremy Corbyn pulled a similar stunt on a train. No wonder he lost the election.
Greencrow has this report as well....
