On the other hand, Greta Thunberg wants us to take her concerns seriously, and not just dismiss them as the products of a childish mind. You can't have it both ways. If a serious look at her concerns leads to the conclusion that some of them are ridiculous, then you can't save them from ridicule by appealing to her child nature. If she's just a child, and thus immune from the kind of criticism that adults commonly receive, then why are we taking her seriously in the first place?
