Can a microphone catch COVID?
Is it possible for a microphone to give you COVID?
Many people are wondering this after Greta Thunberg was caught giving a public speech without wearing a mask.
The microphone was wearing a mask.
Everyone around Greta was wearing a mask, but the liberal darling showed her face.
But don’t worry!
Both Greta and the microphone were apparently protected from COVID-19 because the microphone was wearing a mask!
See the crazy moment it happened below:

This the person that the left wants us to trust in regards to climate change?
Why should we trust her on climate change when she can’t even use a mask correctly?!
The Washington Post has some more details, confirming that Greta actually did say “Blah Blah Blah” into the microphone:
Swedish climate and environmental activist Greta Thunberg denounced the world’s “so-called leaders” during a speech at Italy’s Youth4Climate summit on Tuesday, accusing politicians of failing to act on climate change and describing their promises as 30 years of “blah blah blah.”
Removing her mask so she could deliver an impassioned speech on the podium in Milan, 18-year-old Thunberg said that despite countries around the world vowing to meet “ambitious targets,” the climate crisis was continuing to escalate.
“Build back better, blah blah blah,” she said, referencing the words of President Biden and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who have often used the phrase when talking about their visions for the future.
Thunberg also resurfaced past remarks from French President Emmanuel Macron, who said in a warning to Congress during the Trump presidency in 2018 that there “is no planet B,” while calling on countries to “work together” to reduce carbon emissions and save the planet.
Mimicking Macron during the conference Tuesday, Greta said: “There is no planet B. There is no planet blah.”
Such words uttered by leaders, she said, sounded “great” but had so far led to “no action.”
“Our hopes and dreams drown in their empty words and promises,” she said, addressing an audience of an estimated 400 activists ages 15 to 29. She encouraged world leaders to find a “smooth transition towards a low-carbon economy.”
The activists at the youth summit will create a list of recommendations that will be reviewed by government officials and taken to the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, or COP26, in November.
Ugandan climate activist Vanessa Nakate also spoke at the summit, saying that vulnerable countries were “still waiting” on funds of 100 billion euros, or $117 billion, that were promised by officials in 2020.
“It’s time to show us the money. It’s time, it’s time, it’s time,” she said before breaking down in tears after sharing that she had recently witnessed police in Uganda removing a body from floodwaters.
Build back better?
More like blah-blah-blah.
Social media users quickly pointed out Greta’s unusual stunt.

The irony is that Greta hasn’t accomplished anything other than being famous.
She hasn’t started a business.
She hasn’t created a product.
She hasn’t employed anyone.
Yet… she is “lecturing” world leaders.
Swedish activist Greta Thunberg mocked world leaders — including US President Joe Biden and the UK’s Boris Johnson — at a youth climate summit in Milan on Tuesday, saying the last 30 years of climate action had amounted to “blah, blah, blah.”
Thunberg imitated the leaders by repeating their commonly used expressions on the climate crisis, shooting them down as empty words and unfulfilled promises.
“When I say climate change, what do you think of? I think jobs. Green jobs. Green jobs,” she said, referencing Biden’s speeches on the climate crisis.
“We must find a smooth transition towards a low carbon economy. There is no Planet B,” she said, in a reference to a speech given by French President Emmanuel Macron. “There is no Planet Blah. Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.”
And in her jibe at UK Prime Minister Johnson, Thunberg derided the leader’s rhetoric around his government’s “green recovery” plans.
“This is not about some expensive, politically correct dream at the bunny hugging or blah, blah, blah. Build back better, blah, blah, blah. Green economy, blah, blah, blah,” Thunberg said.
“Net zero, blah, blah, blah. Climate neutral, blah, blah, blah. This is all we hear from our so-called leaders — words, words that sound great but so far, has led to no action or hopes and dreams. Empty words and promises.”
Thunberg was speaking at the Youth4Climate forum, an event held two days before dozens of ministers convene in Milan for a final high-level meeting before the COP26 climate talks in Glasgow in November. COP26 President Alok Sharma was at the youth event and will be chairing the ministers’ meeting.
The youth attendees will come up with a list of recommendations for ministers to consider later this week. Ministers are expected to try and align their positions on issues on the Glasgow agenda, including putting an end date on the use of coal and who should pay what to assist the Global South in its transition to low-carbon economies.
If Greta can’t wear a mask properly, why should we trust what she has to say on climate change?
The climate is extremely complex.
Much more complicated than a mask.
And saying “blah blah blah” over and over in a speech isn’t cute or funny.
It’s a stunt that suggests she has nothing better to say.
