Greater than 3,000 individuals gathered within the shadow of the College of Iowa on Friday afternoon to listen to Thunberg speakClimate change teen activist Greta Thunberg joins a local weather strike march in Iowa Metropolis. He has falsely claimed climate change was a hoax perpetuated by the Chinese.

Greta Thunberg took the world by storm and nobody saw it coming.

Thunberg said their voices at the rally are not something you can continue to ignore.

Mr Trump retweeted her words and sarcastically said: "She seems like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future. So nice to see!" and Thunberg changed her bio accordingly. She responded by changing her Twitter profile using the same expression. On Fox News recently, Michael Knowles, a conservative troll and a podcaster, described Greta as a "mentally ill Swedish child" who is "being exploited by her parents and by the global left".

Students also said the University has almost doubled it's use of natural gas at the power plant.

"I think it just goes to show how big of a problem this is", Rholf said.

Putin: Russia helps China build missile warning system
During an energy forum in Moscow, Putin was asked if Russian Federation would interfere in the polls, to which he replied, "I'll tell you a secret: Yes, We absolutely will..."

Regardless of internet criticism from Trump and others, Thunberg has repeatedly brushed off hateful attacks.

"And to have them have to enter a classroom exactly where they do not experience protected, wherever they don't sense they can share their view, in which they never really feel revered, we as moms and dads have to stand up from that", stated Phillips.

She added, But dont waste your time giving them any more attention. "Because the world is waking up and we are the change". More likely to be displaced and therefore poor or working in sub-standard garment factories, for example, they are susceptible to the destabilising effects of climate change.

After 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg spoke at the Iowa City climate strike October 4, some audience members were surprised to discover her powerful presence didn't translate into height.

Thunberg has been tipped as a potential victor of this 12 months Nobel Peace Prize.

Ladbrokes spokeswoman Jessica O'Reilly said: "It's hard to argue against the impact Thunberg's actions have had globally, and that's reflected in her odds as the favourite".
