Time names Greta Thunberg Person of the Year for 2019

I trolled Kunstler's readers in a comment to Cascading Cat Litter about Greta Thunberg.
My choice for the Nobel Peace Prize is Greta Thunberg, who started the Youth Climate Strike.  Better her than Assange or even the student activists from Parkland, Florida.
That didn't happen, as Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed won the Nobel Peace Prize.  However, she did earn an honor that would have worked just as well for the purpose.  Watch TIME 2019 Person Of The Year: Greta Thunberg.

Greta Thunberg is the face of a global youth-led climate movement.
Congratulations, Greta!  Not only are you the Person of the Year, you are the youngest to ever be named for this title.  May you and your youthful followers continue to raise people's awareness and prompt action on the climate.

Time bestowed three other titles, Athlete of the Year, Entertainer of the Year, and Guardians of the Year.  I plan on posting videos about all of them as the week progresses.  Stay tuned.
