Ukraine interfered in US elections in 2016. When the information about Manafort was published, Trump’s ratings plummeted.
Greta Thunberg was “created” as a tool by cynical adults, using a special methodology. [She] is a response for the request to panic. This panic has been intensified. But by whom? There is no answer yet. They have successfully found the image of the protest, “the girl with pigtails”, Greta, a fighter for the purity of nature on Earth. They have chosen a teenager with autism. You cannot criticise her since it would be “politically incorrect”, this is a never-failing means of exciting society.
This claim is a conspiracy presented without any evidence. It is recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about climate change and international youth climate protests started by the Swedish activist Greta Thunberg.
In August 2018, the Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg staged a "School Strike for Climate" in front of the Swedish parliament. Later, her strikes inspired youth from all over the world to join a global #FridaysForFuture campaign. The first international school strike was held on Friday, 15 March.
Ever since, Greta Thunberg has been the target of derogatory commentary from pro-Kremlin media. Read our analysis here.
The existence of anthropogenic climate change is a matter of scientific consensus. Only a tiny minority of scientists dispute this consensus: the Earth is warming through the greenhouse effect; human activities - including use of fossil fuels, cutting down rainforests, and farming livestock - are a major cause of the warming; and, unchecked, this rapid warming presents significant risks to human communities and natural systems.
No other environmental threat has been subjected to as much scientific research. The US government has spent billions of dollars on climate science across many agencies and universities. The UN has assembled thousands of scientists to compile and review the latest science and contribute to the publication of five reports since 1990 that have consistently made the consensus deeper and the warnings more urgent. Preventing the dangerous consequences of climate change is a key priority for the EU.
