She said she also wanted to talk to Ms Thunberg’s parents and to share her thoughts as a social media entrepreneur.“Speaking on a big platform invites a lot of different opinions and personalities and how they (parents) manage that,” Ms Kardashian said. 

Ms Kardashian’s ancestors came from Armenia and her visit also included seeing three of her four children baptised on Monday in the country’s main cathedral Echmiadzin.Her elder daughter, North, was baptized in 2015 in the Armenian church in Jerusalem.

And this is news because....? This is relevant as people like Trump have gone out of their way to be friends with her & Kanye... SteveRezdo Wait.... this may be the first useful thing KK has ever done. SBS She does? Does she have a brain too? SBS just can’t get enough of these ‘Some celeb said something that agrees with our narrative’ story. If KK had said the opposite you’d either ignore it or make your headline negative and draw attention to her flaws.

Fuck me there is more pollution in her lips than what Australia produces 🤣 how is a Kardashian story news? So now you’re not even pretending to be journalists? What a disgrace. Nothing about the complete hypocrisy of flying empty massive commercial jets for private charter? Defund SBS fakenews If these girls were poor, the globe would save a billion tonnes of carbon.

She can certainly 'back' up her. SBS She can't handle someone else getting the attention, she has to be in the spotlight 😕 Gadgets_S_J Her sister regularly shows off her fleet of cars and her husband took his private jet literally to give someone a pair of shoes. Maybe she could start at home.... There's more plastic in that body than the Pacific Ocean, and we're going to praise this? Great metoo KimKardashian

From the girl who owns a bajillion cars 😂😂🙄 And she must be so proud WTF she is a scammer! She dont give a fuck! I pretty sure he makeup company dumps lots of waste into the environment! Quit falling for this Pornstars crap. She gave 10% oo HurricaneHarveys proceeds to ppl who needed them she pocket the rest!smh

So this gives undoubted proof that it is a SCAM Get rid of your private jets and cars then Wow. This should help the cause! Terrific I'm sure Really? SBS just dug it's own hole.. There goes her free ticket into the White House.....when she realises this she’ll probs back off SBS So No more plastic surgery for kim

All the more reason to not support the climate change hype The irrelevant jumps on a relevant bandwagon Kimmy’s hair spray quota single handedly punches a new hole in the ozone layer daily..🤷🏻‍♀️ SBS you have to be joking who cares what KK thinks Just joining the media band wagon. Climate change has been with us for 4.5 billion years Our attempt to moderate its effect is questionable. This is about science not emotion. What is the alternative candles run by sperm whale oil. Nuclear Power should be your aim not this disruptive immaturity.

This woman is as intelligent as pocket lint I don't think that's Kim Kardashian. Perhaps she can lend Greta her private 747 This is “news”? Seriously? 🤦🏼‍♂️ Another millionaire given free press paid for by us plebs, telling us how to live What? 🤣 Another delusional hypocrite. 🤣 In other news, the sun rose this morning in the east and the sky is blue.

C’mon SBS. Try harder. This is the furthest thing from ‘news’ possible... sbs gretathunberg The fat on her arse could power a third world country.

Climate activists use bikes to block morning trafficOne commuter said the ExtinctionRebellion traffic block on Hoddle St was frustrating, even though he supported climate action. 'Does it have to be at peak hour?' he asked. 'It makes me a little against the cause in a way.' 'Preventing human extinction is important, but not important enough to inconvenience me in the slightest' You can be against Extinction Rebellion actions but still support action on climate change. I think ER are ok with that. Don’t conflate anti ER with anti action on climate change. And the world was eternally grateful, as extinction was saved due to the galant efforts of thirty priveliged unemployed white people, stopping traffic with bicycles! How did we not think of this solution before

'You're hurting me': Elderly protesters dragged from climate change rallyPolice arrest dozens of protesters during a climate change demonstration in Sydney today, including elderly activists who were dragged away by force.

Is the government going to start cutting off pensions and salaries next?

Climate protesters won't win many friends, Victorian Premier saysVictoria's Premier says he does not think climate activists will win many friends as demonstrators block traffic and trams in Melbourne's CBD for the second day in a row. Here's an idea. How about these climate alarmists start their own self sustaining communities and show us idiots how it's done They've won my Heart. At least SOMEONE cares about LIFE and the PLANET. 'Sorry to interrupt your routine, but: BIG BUSINESS IS DESTROYING LIFE AND EARTH'. Until your cars and air-conditioners don't work, and they start selling 100SPF sunscreen, robot-humans won't care. Meanwhile ER Melbourne are being lambasted on twitter for being too willing to cooperate with the authorities so I guess he's not wrong?

Extinction Rebellion climate activists block city streets againOrganisers of the ExtinctionRebellion protes said about 45 people were arrested in Melbourne on Tuesday, including one of the Melbourne leaders, Reem Ramadan. Instead of attending the climate change action to scream, cause unnecessary disruption & blame governments, l planted 3 trees in my backyard yesterday & swept the footpath outside my house to clear it of the rubbish and butts others throw, so it doesn't end up in the waterways. klimateklowns Finely a death cult for atheist middle class drones.
