Why is pre-teen Greta Thunberg Time's person of the year?

Out of all the deserving people of science and diplomacy, Time chooses a girl who had a nervous breakdown in front of world leaders and who has for the most part not done anything other than run her mouth and voice her opinions.

    Because TIME is losing many readers and they are just trying to0 get a controversial subject runni9ng to try to get more readers... 

    She is a ACTIVIST and deserves whatever criticism anyone with freedom of speech wants to say about her.IF THE 16 YEAR OLD CHILD does not want criticism let the CHILD go home and KEEP HER UNINFORMED NON COLLAGE EDUCATED MOUTH SHUT LIKE Most TEEN AGERS should do. SHE isn't even old enough to Vote yet she has DUMP PEOPLE LIKE you crying for her.. You people who feel sorry for the little spoiled trained coached little girl needs to grow up and listen to adults yourself instead of a trained coached little girl.

    Because she’s a rich, White, liberal female. I’m surprised they didn’t choose snooki or a 90 day fiancé.

    True to everything that you wrote, except that she isn't a pre-teen, she's 16 and that makes her a teen.

    She is using her voice to fight for climate change, fight to save the planet. If we don't act now, life will end sooner rather than later. She didn't have a "nervous breakdown." She has every right to be angry over the incompetence of the UN and their poor efforts in the fight against climate change!

    BC in a liberal utopia achievement is meaningless. 

    All one need do/say/create (banana duct taped to wall) is something that is incredibly liberal/unintelligent, something that spreads to all liberals and you have made a name for yourself.    Time mag is so liberal its disgusting If even one issue sold I know somebody has been terrible mislead, that is, if the person buying, can read.

    Hmm.. since when is sixTEEN preteen?  Anyway, as I've said before, it's not "MOST POPULAR person of the year", it's "person of the year".  Adolf Hitler was once "person of the year" and he was hardly popular, but people talked about him even more than they are talking about Thunberg.  (Oh, and just so you know, it's "TOON-bairg", not "THUNN-burgh".)

    Time is run by climate change zealots. I imagine their circulation will fall as a result.

    Kinda like what you’re doing right now. Only you’re doing it anonymously on yahoo answers. You must feel so vindicated.

    She isn't a pre-teen, but an award from Time is meaningless so it doesn't matter.
