Why has Greta Thundberg been named Person Of The Year?

The only thing she's good at is going on little rants. Everything she parrots has been debunked, and meanwhile geniuses such as Boyan Slat get swept under the carpet..

    She has been name Time Magazine person of the year. It is not an honour it is just recognition of notoriety.

    Previous Time People of the Year have included Hitler, Stalin, Nixon, and Putin.

    Look at your meme and you'll find the answer--the Google search for her got 176 million hits, while the inventor only got about a quarter-million.  She has been extremely effective at drawing attention to an increasingly dire problem.

    What the other guy did may turn out to be very useful, but plastic is not the existential threat that global warming is.

    Person of the Year isn't a reward for invention, it notes someone the magazine believes had a big influence and caused big changes in the public conversation.

    Slat did an impressive thing, but it didn't have a big public impact. Thunberg fired up young people, usually apathetic, to become climate change activists, got the attention of world leaders, and got the attention of people like you.

    Person of the year isn't always a positive thing. When Hitler and Arafat got that title, it wasn't because the magazine admired them. And maybe you could say the same about Trump. But in Thunberg's case they seem to be admirers.

      Time's editor in chief explained "she became the biggest voice on the biggest issue facing the planet this year, coming from essentially nowhere to lead a worldwide movement".
