Teen activist Greta Thunberg is having another temper tantrum right now, and suggests in a tweet there will be retaliation!
Today the EU failed to #VoteThisCAPdown and basically made their insufficient so-called climate and environmental targets impossible to reach.
And no-one even knew it happened.
Thanks to all lobbyists, news editors and MEPs who made this happen. We won’t forget…#WithdrawTheCAP

Her indignation is a reaction to today’s European Parliament failure to vote down Common Agricultural Policy’s (CAP) watered down changes that include making money available for landscapes that benefit biodiversity, environmental and climate-related measures and direct direct payments for eco-schemes.
The EU Parliaments voted for its plan by a vast margin 425 – 212, with 51 abstaining.
The WWF EU tweeted that the CAP deal has “no environmental credibility”:
Despite calls from citizens, farmers, scientists & NGOs, the European Parliament shut their eyes to the climate & biodiversity crises & gave a rubber stamp to their #FutureOfCAP deal with almost no environmental credibility.
But how did the groups vote? See👇 #VoteThisCAPdown pic.twitter.com/BZLZnyOtY4

The EU Parliament’s decision to approve the CAP signifies climate protection is not as serious an issue as it often makes it out to be. Greta and her cult followers are fuming.
