Climate Messiah Greta Thunberg: “They try so desperately to silence us”

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

Greta Thunberg while being mobbed by reporters in Madrid complained that “they” were desperate to silence her – but the COP25 climate conference she hopes to influence is already on the verge of failure.

Greta Thunberg: ‘They try so desperately to silence us’

Matt McGrath Environment correspondent @mattmcgrathbbc

The 16-year-old was mobbed by press and spectators when she visited the conference centre earlier on Friday.

She had to be escorted away for her own safety amid shouts of “leave her alone” from concerned observers. 

“People want everything to continue like now and they are afraid of change,” she told reporters.

“And change is what we young people are bringing and that is why they want to silence us and that is just a proof that we are having an impact that our voices are being heard that they try so desperately to silence us.”

This COP started with great hope last Monday, with strong words from the UN secretary-general and others, warning that time is running out and that negotiators should be guided by the science. 

Since then, the urgency has given way to frustration.

Little obvious progress is being made on the central question of raising countries’ ambitions to cut carbon.

Indeed, UN climate chief Patricia Espinosa said the issue of increased pledges wasn’t even on the agenda for the final outcome of this conference. 

We don’t have in the agenda one item that’s called ‘ambition’ and, therefore, it’s not like we are expecting to have a specific decision on that.”

Who are “they” who are trying to silence you Greta? Not climate skeptics – because we want as many people as possible to hear your message.

Greta makes the people I despise squirm by exposing their hypocrisy, while she practices that very same hypocrisy herself. And the funniest part, the people she targets have to sit there and take it, otherwise they’ll be accused of not caring.

Exactly what I was thinking. No doubt instructed to by her handlers; alarmists and liberals in general are projecting like mad, along with their big lies and repetition they appear to be following Goebbels’ handbook…

“In his analysis of Nazi propaganda, Ellis Freeman identified an influence tactic based on projection: accusing another person of the negative traits and behaviors that one possesses and exhibits with the goal of deflecting blame away from one’s own misdeeds and toward the accused…the use of projection as an influence tactic is not limited to fascist regimes and its consequences can be socially devastating…”

“[I]n the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods….[T]he most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly and with unfiagging attention. It must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over. Here, as so often in this world, persistence is the first and most important requirement for success.” – Adolph Hitler

At first I was tempted to give you a bad time. However, I decided to look up the definition of “gender.” Certainly the new definition (not the one I originally learned) of gender is a load of politically-correct balderdash. I’m surprised at how quickly all the major dictionaries jumped on the band wagon and endorsed the changed definition. Humpty Dumpty would be pleased to see that its approach to defining things has been so widely accepted.

Usually, when there’s a mob of reporters around, they are trying to get someone to speak, not silence them. I fear Greta suffers from, among many other mental ailments, a persecution complex. I’d love for her to identify even one person who is “trying to silence her”.

I think Greta is confused. People who disagree with her about human-caused climate change, is not the same as trying to silence her. There’s a difference between arguing with someone, and telling that someone to shut up. Noone is telling you to shut up, Greta.

No, Greta, you are not being silenced, you are being challenged about your beliefs. You are free to respond as much as you desire.

Greta’s Soros Connections
September 28, 2019
…However, the young girl’s sudden ascent to prominence is not happening by chance. She has deep connections to the globalist elite and activist parents who are supporters of the far-left domestic terrorist group ANTIFA.
Thunberg’s frequent handler is Luisa-Marie Neubauer, an operative from the ONE Movement. Neubauer can be seen behind Thunberg at many of her public events.

…Thunberg was forced to apologize this summer for wearing an ANTIFA t-shirt by mistake. She claimed on her Twitter account that she did not realize that the t-shirt was advertising a violent extremist organization. However, her parents – Svante Thunberg and Malena Ernman – have been photographed wearing the exact same t-shirt, casting serious doubt on her explanation…
The article continues with more information. It is truly depressing that the Media support Soros in this and refuse to call him out.

Interesting to read even more information on the parents exploiting their handicapped child for their own selfish purposes, whatever they may be.
I repeat here what I posted in a previous post here a few days ago:

“I completely agree that her being made a symbol of our eminent demise is ridiculous and terrible.
However, it is my understanding that as a younger child she was diagnosed with Asperger’s disease (currently lumped in with the all inclusive “autism spectrum disorder” [ASD] by our brilliant and wonderfully effective mental health community ) that is characterized by being intelligent, but overly obsessive, compulsive and lacking in abilities to interact socially. Once these people get something in their heads, it tends to stay there obsessively.
If this is true, then she is to be pitied as a tool of the warmists and they and her artist parents should be charged with child abuse.”

As for Soros, no heinous act by an organization is too vile to fund if his global objectives are furthered. If you want an up close and personal view of his amoral views of the world, just watch this “60 Minutes” interview with him back in 2016:

His disassociation from any responsibility in the holocaust is unbelievable.

If you compare the journalistic millimeters of Greta, a schoolkid with a powerful PR backing operation, and a real climate scientist activist such as the world famous alarmist James Hansen or very moderately alarmed warmist, Dr Roger Pielke Jr, the schoolkid is getting much morepositive coverage per week and journalists even print what she says.

I don’t even care to mention how her supporters have silenced scientists and officials making sure they don’t talk (or are not heard when talking) against unfounded alarmism.

So, in my opinion, this is yet another example of guilty herself what she blames others for. Far-left Leftism in action. Well funded and designed agit prop. Which brings me to the final conclusion: the age of CAGW cultism will end in 10 to 15 years. We have seen the peak.

His far more immediate problem is freedom from Xi’s diktats and attempts to subject Hong Kong to the same dictatorial control he exercises in the rest of China not to mention the horrendous real pollution and environmental disasters created by, among other things, their mining of rare earth metals for “green” windmills and solar without any environmental safeguards at all.
His parents must be on Xi’s payroll.

What makes this worse kcTaz is the amount of CO2 actually created for the life cycle of wind and solar!

All forms of transport from mining, processing, manufacturing, transport to ports, shipping and transfer to points of installation! They all use massive amounts of ‘fossil fuels’ thereby producing CO2. All for nothing! The power itself doesn’t even produce reliable power. Added to the ecological damage being continued even today, it’s nothing short of criminal!

The greens claim that wind turbines and solar power will save the world with it’s ‘clean energy’. Meanwhile they are spewing exponential amounts of the very thing they are seeking to reduce, CO2, into the atmosphere.

Arable land is being destroyed, people living near these industrial plants, some covering more than a thousand hectares of countryside, often have no say. There is nothing positive or even useful about wind and solar. It’s intermittent, has a short life and then they start all over again. And there is very little recycling done anywhere in the world. No-one, unless it’s mandated is really keen to pay for the huge amount of infrastructure required and an unknown profit margin. Then of course, I don’t think anyone has decided what to do with the toxic waste that results from this additional process.

We know it’s all a farce, we need to think about what we can do to get this sort of information to the MSM.

Thanks for the link kcTaz, I hope that enough people see it to feel the need to take some form of action!

She’s 18 years old and a free agent to do anything she pleases and speaks her own views. What could be more acceptable than free speech?

And note the bright honest open attitude and body language, the relative pride in being a human, in being part of a modern civilization and society, free to pursue as she pleases a genuine open stymied scientific inquiry and exploration of the real complexity of the natural world, compared to the misanthropic, simplistic false angry accusations and fake-crisis conjuring of alarmists who want to eliminate real science and genuine natural curiosity to understand the world and humbly communicate.

My former university was overflowing with girls like Naomi.

But now the girls are auto-suppressed, censored, attacked and goaded, driven-out by lunatic Greenies and anti-science thought-police fanatics who can’t face that science is actually about freedom to inquire, and freedom to associate and communicate openly with others. Instead, girls at universities are pre-‘taught’ at school by ‘teachers’, to fear real scientific knowledge, the truth of complexity and uncertainty, and to shy away from questioning, and flock together in groups of victims, and to feel bad about people and focus on imaginary future catastrophes.

Thank goodness people like Naomi have rejected all that and show mentally abused girls everywhere what a normal, smart intelligent girl really looks and sounds like.

Never mind Greta, “Matt McGrath Environment correspondent @mattmcgrathbbc” just picked up a £100,000 bribe to keep on spouting Gang Green’s agit-prop drivel. And that’s on top of his salary and index-linked pension, entirely paid for by the BBC’s “Licence Fee” payers.

If you watch TV in the UK, you either pay £155 a year to the British Bullshit Corporation (watch it or not), or you end up in Court.

I live in the UK, I haven’t had a TV license for 18 years. I don’t watch TV, ever, and I have never been to Court. If I want to watch sport I go to the pub, which is a much better place to watch it.

I do get a constant stream of threatening letters, but they are never addressed to me (always ‘The Householder’), so I ignore them.

Gender is what has been redefined and expanded up.
Trans people refers to being transgender.
Biological males competing in women’s sporting events refers to people choosing to identify as another gender.
Gender is what it at issue with the whole pronoun flapdoodle.
Gender is what the left now claims there are over 78 of.

Besides, the whole issue has now been obfuscated into incoherence by redefining words in ambiguous and poorly thought out but completely non-negotiable ways.
Look up the distinction, and we find crap like this:

“What is the difference between a transsexual and a transgender?

Definition. Transgender refers to a person whose sense of personal identity and gender does not correspond with their birth sex while transsexual refers to a person who emotionally and psychologically feels that they belong to the opposite sex.”

OK…wait, what?
One refers to personal identity and gender, while the other refers to emotional state and psychology…IOW to state of mind.
What the hell is the difference?
And in the first one, gender does not correspond to birth sex, while in the second one, a person feels like they belong to the opposite sex.
Hmm, well now. That is as clear as mud.

This and similar definitions make the question more complicated, and clears up nothing.
In fact, the biggest shift is in defining gender away from the concept of a binary choice.
Hence, when one signs up for Facebook, and they ask what gender one is, there are something like 78 or more choices. Whatever nonsense someone makes up causes the list to constantly expand.

On top of that, using the word sex raises the possibility of some people failing to distinguish sexual orientation from gender identity.
For example, in the unlikely circumstance that I am sent to prison, I will identify as a female, with the sexual orientation of lesbian. I am certain this will result in a far more agreeable period of incarceration.

But all of this is rather beside the point.
There are in reality two genders, no matter what anyone says, except to the extent that people can create new definitions for words and then if enough people agree to use these definitions, it is a semantic reality.
But it is not a biological one.
I have made a point of keeping up to date on this nonsense, to the point that I have already been able to discern that many on the left who live by this nonsense are nonetheless not particularly well informed as to what exactly these various words mean on any particular day.

And no one can claim any of it is in the least bit scientific, because it is not.
It is just made up fantasyland as hoc bafflegab.

REAL Serious Censorship already exists in mainstream Science.

Government financed Climate Alarmists (and any other willing liars) get time to tell their lies in the (Democratic-Party-Owned) Media. Any contrarians get called names in the Press…and recieve calls for termination.

Few can get placement and promotion in taxpayer subsidized Climate research unless they tow the line of the Climate Crisis meme. Step out of line and the career you spent 15 to 30 years of study to achieve is taken from you and then you are ostracized by the other (government) scientists and then pilloried in the press if you DON’T SHUT UP.

Why is the Right NOT FIGHTING THIS ?

At the very least THESE S.O.B’.s should get defunded. We taxpayers actually have to pay for this propaganda that’s trying to destroy our country.

Instead, we see Republican Congressman continuing to fund these treacherous liars…because some of the $$ gets spent in their Districts/States. Whores that don’t deserve our votes…but still get our votes because the alternative is more DISGUSTING than giving the vote to a Whore.

Global warming just keeps getting funnier all the time.

Now the movement is being led by a 16 year old child who dropped out of high school and who can see carbon dioxide. And who claims she is being silenced. Reminds of the child Jesus teaching the elders in the temple.

In Chicago on Friday a group of school kids cut class and marched through the downtown area to protest global warming. The news media of course fawned all over them. Such wise wise children. I heard one of these wise children being interviewed on the radio. She said she would really rather be in class but protesting global warming was more important. Oh the sacrifices we all have to make.

Silence you and the climate changers? Darlin in case you haven’t noticed your mob of doomsdayers have commandeered all the oxygen there is anytime there’s another COPout kneesup-
Sounds like I’ll need a grant to study the effects of plastic molecules leeching out of the hulls of modern boats and snaffling all the fishy’s oxygen and whether wooden boats are the answer to it all.

” … She travelled by catamaran instead of plane, but pointed out living sustainably must become much easier. “We can’t require, from everyone, to rely on people like this to sail you across the ocean, that is absurd,” she said. … ”

At least Greta’s finally ‘learned’ that sailing across the Atlantic ocean as transport is absurd and impractical. But if she was less committed to conceit and arrogance, and was able to take instruction in advance from people who know these things (i.e. get an education), she could have listened to people who already knew that and not made that mistake. They could have instructed you Greta as to why crossing the Atlantic was a really dumb, immature, wasteful, expensive and dangerous thing to do in a plastic, carbon and steel boat. Plus it was still deeply hypocritical and delusional, and needlessly risked the lives of others, to satisfy your mad delusion.

If you’re reading this Greta, and I hope you do, you’ve now proven beyond questions that you are a fool.

This is no insult either as you did a brave but also incredibly foolish thing, it’s an observation. You’re a fool for not listening to those who could have told you the facts in advance before you foolishly repeated known obvious errors. If you run your mouth less and rushed to judgement and action less quickly you might have avoided this and further mistakes to come, instead of pretending you know enough to speak authoritatively, because you’ve demonstrated here that you have no clue about very important practical things.

And due to your amazing stupidity and stubbornness you actually did it twice! Once wasn’t enough? You couldn’t admit it was an error and recant and express humility? Are you now unable to do that? Are you captured and entrained by your own foolish words and inability to admit your own hypocrisy?

See the problem you face when you do that? You own mind is going to be very hard on you in coming years Greta, I don’t envy where you’re headed, but I do hope you get there safely. It’s not a case of people wanting to silence you, it’s just that you’re clearly a blind-guide who pretends to see the way for others. And as the rest of that parable goes, “… and they both ended up in the ditch”.

Try not to drag other people into your dangerous blind follies Greta, they don’t deserve that.

Not just on the verge

The whole concept conceived by numnut UN bureaucrats is a grand and complete failure. This is why there are now 25 COPS and no results. The idea that the UN is the global environmental protection agency is structurally flawed and that is why it needs the Gretas and the extinction rebellions of the world.

“Ambition” is an admirable thing but without the legal framework of the EPA of the USA, the UN’s aspiration to a global EPA role is pure ambition and no substance.

Interestingly, the article states, “Larger marine animals are swimming closer to the surface, where oxygen is more available, but this leaves them prone to overfishing.” That is countered with the claim, “According to the study, about 50% of oxygen loss in the upper part of the ocean is a result of temperature increase.” Why would larger fish swim to the shallower waters that are losing oxygen from warming?

Using the BBC news webpage as a source, it seems such an event did not happen 🙁 In fact one might even conclude that Greta is experiencing what its like to be a phart in a spacesuit ?

THEY should embrace change, welcome it! THEY must give up those cars and airplanes! THEY must give up their cell phones, computers! Horses are wonderful animals to ride. Since when do THEY need advanced medical technology? After all, our ancestors did quite well with herbs and witch-doctors as enough of them lived to a ripe old age of 40. Hey, if it was good enough for them it should be good enough for YOU. Anyway, THEY should give no thought to going without electricity, natural gas or diesel heating oil to keep warm with in the winter as THEY’ll all have fireplaces to burn wood. It’ll take 2 years to denude all the world’s forests to use the wood to heat their homes, but that should be good enough because we’re already in the midst of an extinction so we’re dying out anyway. We won’t need those forests after that. Be tough, chuck those air conditioners and just endure sweltering summer heat that the CAGW Alarmists say is coming! Embrace change! We’ve already started by going back to windmills to generate energy, so why not go all the way? But that’s what we mean by being “Progressive”!
