    Agreed, there have been some appalling tweets from people who are of an age where they really should know better.

    She is bright, and in addition to being a global leader in thinking in her chosen field she speaks multiple languages. However, she is on the scale, Aspbergers and Mutism being two of the traits.

    She seems brighter than a lot of the adults whose skin she is getting under ;)

    I'm no expert but I don't think Aspergers means you have learning disabilities....probably the opposite. Heard her describe as Autistic and having Aspergers but never learning difficulties....part of a new attack on her ?

    I always thought Asperger's was classed as a learning difficulty. People who suffer from it are said to lack the ability to take on other information barring what they seem to have a real ability to focus on I believe? I may be totally wrong on that but that was how I understood it.

    So do I....doing an adults work without the adults that count listening.

    Cannot find anything saying she has learning difficulties but there are plenty of things being said by right wing journalists and people that should know better that are beyond disgusting all trying to undermine her message with personal attacks.....no counter evidence that stands up to scrutiny though :rolleyes:

    I take it googles broken then. Its quite well documented she is on the 'spectrum'

    As has been pointed out previously this is classed as a learning difficulty...

    Shes a child sheild doing the bidding of someone else.

    Some one who is being played like a fiddle

    I'm not sure who would be the nefarious puppetmasters on the side of advancing the case for tackling climate change, but if they do exist I definitely prefer them to the tw*ts on the other side.

    Google is working fine thanks....still nothing saying she HAS learning difficulties. People with Aspergers tend to be of higher intelligence however if that's your definition of difficulty.

    So your OP was a statement and not a question then....I'm surprised :rolleyes:

    If that is the case, which I’m not convinced either way, the attacks are even more despicable. However
    If that’s the case, which I’m not convinced either way, then these attacks are despicable
    If that’s the case ( not convinced either way myself) then it makes these attacks even more despicable. However, we should not be surprised and better get used to even worse as the Right- wing And Tory supporting media barges it’s propaganda machine right through our society

    Personally speaking I'd rather try and protect the planet than make snide remarks about someone who is quite possibly of very high intelligence and focus and who gives a **** about what happens in the future.
    The opposite opinion seems to be who gives a toss, I'm not letting my standard of living slip when I'll be dead anyway when the sea levels start to rise.

    I think she is a young lady with the right message at the right time to galvanize people into action finally and there are a lot of powerful people scared by the possibility that she will start something big enough to overpower their money is god mentality.

    Utter bollocks. I take issue most with people pointing to her being diagnosed with autism, ADHD, and other conditions. It's true, she is autistic. So what? You're suggesting that because of that she's incapable of genuinely holding these beliefs and in doing so disparage all of the amazing work she's done so far. What you don't realise is that neurological differences have phenomenal political potential. They see the world differently, from another perspective.

    The one being manipulated here seems to be you. That's just a regurgitation of what the right wing media is saying, isn't it?
