Izzy Cook, who organized this week’s “School Strike 4 Climate” for Wellington, New Zealand, was recently interviewed by presenter Heather du Plessis-Allan. Du Plessis-Allan told Cook she was planning on flying to Fiji … should she? No, not under the current climate crisis, answered Cook. That prompted the host to ask Cook when she’d last flown and where. Well, it was a few months ago. To Fiji.

Some people in the comments are actually saying they feel sorry for Cook, who’s thrust herself into the media spotlight at 16.
Today would be a good day for those saying 16 year olds should be able to vote to double down. Not.

Couldn’t even influence her own parents to not destroy the climate by flying family to Fiji.

That was pretty brutal, but a good lesson for young Izzy. The “do as I say, not as I do” rhetoric coming from the left is abysmal.

Like most greenies a complete hypocrite. I hope it gives her cause to think before she goes on her next crusade.

The poor girl. Forcibly taken to Fiji against her will. Those horrible, nasty, planet-destroying parents.

That was gold, HDPA couldn’t have planned that any better if she had tried.

The left use identify politics as a shield against any criticism of their appalling ideas Izzy Cook was used for her age and gender #nzpol

It’s the same reason the (ever-older) Greta Thunberg got so much attention — there are so many people in the replies accusing the host of “bullying” the poor young girl just because she has some idealism.
Heather du Plessis-Allan sounds like an absolute cow. Does she have a purpose in life, other than bullying children?

See? “Bullying children.” A child who agreed to go on the air to bully adults not to fly.
This sums up today’s culture cancelling virtue signalling mouth breathing stupidity
