Version 1 is people refusing to even slightly question the methods of her (or her overseers)

Version 2 is people over inflating what Version 1 does

In between there are links that support either

“My message to the Americans is the same as to everyone – that is to unite behind the science and to act on the science,” Thunberg told the Guardian on Tuesday.

“We must realize this is a crisis, and we must do what we can now to spread awareness about this and to put pressure on the people in power. And especially, the US has an election coming up soon, and it’s very important that for everyone who can vote, vote.”
