Head honcho of Louis Vuitton, Moet & Hennessy attacks Greta Thunberg at corporate environmental event
Well, I guess it is genuine catastrophism when what you are describing is a genuine catastrophe. I would read this as rich guys who cater to rich guys saying "no biggie, we will be fine. Who is this peon to question our wealth? " Their grandchildren will curse them.

I guess his point that action speaks louder than words is valid, but he’s also one of the world’s richest people and has the ability to make a tangible difference. Thunberg is a 16 year old kid, her words are her action.

Agreed and words matter. Simply saying, “fuck you, do something” is typical privileged BS.
Christ, what an arrogant, hyperprivileged, out of touch, condescending, fuckheaded asshole.
everybody can say that
makes more sense when somebody who can’t do anything says it to somebody who can do something
like a teenager talking to the UN
