Greta Thunberg: “150 Weeks have Passed” but Leaders are Only Pretending to Act

Greta made woke climate leaders squirm at Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Austrian World Summit 2021 – they had to sit there and take it, and applaud and thank her afterwards.

I love Andrew Bolt of Australia’s Sky News’ take on it – he suggests “She abuses these woke leaders because no one else will listen or put up with it.”.

I’m actually starting to warm to Greta Thunberg.

Greta doesn’t drive, so she is unlikely to suffer a car accident, something which seems to happen occasionally to high profile people who upset European leaders – though I’m sure such accidents are just an unfortunate coincidence.

So the question is, how do woke climate leaders disinvite Greta, without looking like traitors to the cause? Maybe they are thick skinned enough to just put up with her scolding indefinitely. But the ongoing abuse surely makes it just a tinsy bit more likely that Greta’s victims will grab any opportunity which arises, to downgrade the climate emergency and head for the exit door.

I’m in favour of anything legal which increases woke climate leaders’ discomfort with their current choices – and Greta is providing plenty of high level discomfort.

Keep up the good work Greta.

Hey, I like what she’s doing. No sceptics could have these opportunities to call world leaders out on their hypocrisy. To bad she is unable to eventually surmise the real political backdrop to the climate window dressing. Michael Moore came close to seeing what’s really going on, but didn’t come up with the real scoop. Actually, Mike seems also unable to follow where the thread really leads despite how close he was to the truth. This is the blindspot that ordinary wokies all have. It’s too easy to block out the obvious with a template in their brain blaming right wing biggies like the Koch brothers for everything bad. ‘Woke’ indeed.

Climate goblin”

Mythologically incorrect. Greta is a podling, one of the globe-headed side-species with which Henson and Froud populated The Dark Crystal.

Wikipedia:

The Podlings are dwarf-like in stature yet with very rounded, circular-shaped, bulbous potato-like heads and small round eyes… In tune with nature, they can speak to Thra’s wildlife…”

(The key point they’re trying to get at, I think, is that podling’s heads are round.)

According to Greta, AOC and the IPCC we only have 9 years, 2 months and 28 days left before we all disappear because of the coming climate apocalypse. Anybody getting nervous yet ? Remember the old saying – “Children should be seen and not heard”. There was a time when adults were smart enough to realize the judgment and insight of children should not be thrust on anyone.

Considering the latter was established in 1988 with the mission statement to find an adverse link between man and the climate. also considering that the UN continues its charter which is secretly to provide jobs for bureaucrats to manufacture hobgoblins; I wouldn’t set any expectation that the IPCC is going to “fade into the woodwork” in Greta’s lifetime.

In the meantime, the IPCC with the Bullhorn of the MSM better named The Propaganda Ministry is responsible for the ignorance of Greta, aOc and millions of nail biters that believe everything they read on their not so “SmartPhones” by the likes of Moveon.org, Huffington Post, Daily Beast. VOX, et. al. and aggregated by Comcast. Google, Yahoo, MSN, Facebook, Twitter…

People that want the truth have to search it out at places like WUWT which the aforementioned propaganda collective censure and warn the brainwashed drones, such as Thunberg and the Cortez, to avoid because they provide information that runs contrary to the Propaganda.

In other words, by projection, they decry the truth as propaganda to the hiveminded collective, clamoring for Central Authoritarian Governance (CAG), under the misguided notion from the Propaganda Press, that CAG equals safety and security.

You aptly describe here the “Big Brother” situation along with “The Ministry of Truth”. It seems to me that Big Brother resides in the corridors of the UN. and it’s acolytes, which over the years has been infiltrated by left wing/marxist activists.
Sadly there is no international constitution, written or otherwise that enables effective challenge to the UN etc. when it gets too big for it’s boots.

Indeed this bodes no good, particularly, as now, the internet enables the soft underbelly of the democratic process to be easily manipulated for political purposes; blurring reality with wild perceptions.

School strike week 151. This Friday we are in a tree plantation in Sápmi, Northern Europe. This used to be a forest, but after it was cut down forest companies have planted an invasive tree species that grows faster than the local ones.

School strike — determined to stay ignorant until she gets her way. A tantrum.
Sapmi — the name for the traditional area of the Suomi peoples. It isn’t a country, but a region. EU Marxist-Nationalists want to become a single, communist country. Like in other places, they use Marxist rhetoric of ethnic division to spread dissent and to facilitate the revolution.
Lumber has brought great wealth to the people of the area. Understanding nothing but bringing on the continuous bloody revolution. Greta doesn’t care about the people or the trees, just about making a spectacle of herself in order to spread the true word of communist revolution.

Greta’s two advantages – her youth (at the time) and her disability/alleged superpower. Perfect for the co-optation of youth.

Tagged in Rentzhog’s “lonely girl” tweet were five twitter accounts: Greta Thunberg, Zero Hour (youth movement), Jamie Margolin (the teenage founder of Zero Hour), Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project, and the People’s Climate Strike twitter account (in the identical font and aesthetics as 350.org).

  • Constructing new supercomputer Gods almost daily to spread The Word
  • Creating new agencies especially to spread fear, panic and anxiety
  • Employing the press to promote finger-wagging, puritanism and fears of inadequacy and guilt.
  • Rewarding mendacity in almost all fields of Medicine, Science, Education and Politics
  • Lying to themselves e.g. When they think Plastic Pin-wheels are = Infrastructure
  • Buying massive armies of cronies to vote for them (using your money Greta)
  • Perfectly trashing the minds and bodies of nearly everyone by the promotion of nutrient free mush food. e.g. Low Salt, Low Fat and The Mediterranean Diet
  • Further trashing minds and bodies via the tacit recommendation of alcohol and cannabis – ‘In Moderation’ it is actually Good 4 You. ha ha ha
  • Building a Surveillance State
  • Constantly trashing their own economies by petty tariffs and duties but esp via the creation of new taxes and the lifting of existing tax rates

Oil was the cause of transportation, medical, and communication infrastructures.

After the discovery of oil a few hundred years ago, we created various modes of transportation, a medical industry, and electronics and communications systems. The oil that reduced infant mortality, extended longevity to more than 80+ and allowed the world to populate to 8 billion, is now required to provide the food, medical, and communications to maintain and grow that population.

Ah! yes the nostalgia. I remember in the sixties when it was “Ban the Bomb”. That worked pretty well eh? now it seems everybody’s got one. On the bright side, all this ‘wailing and gnashing of teeth’ is fun to watch, ‘full of sound and fury and signifying nothing’ and when all the strutting and posturing is done and nothing happens they’ll be able to claim they saved the planet. My fear is that some genuine threat may emerge to distract them… a real Covid19 for example.

I find her quite unpleasant, actually. And she’s not a doom pixie any longer, she’s 18. What is her policy for the billion plus without electricity who daily burn her ‘collapsing ecosystems’ in order to live? To deny them coal fired power stations is racist. But understandable from comfortable little Sweden.

but as I have many times pointed out, the billion haven’t had anyone create any coal power stations in the 75 years since WW2, nor for the most part has anyone rolled out a grid…

Yet India and Kenya, with the help of renewable power, have pretty much 100% electricity coverage, even if not everyone yet connected to it.

I guess that is why so many people from G20 countries are emigrating to India, all that boundless clean power and high standard of living?

They sure have it made there, hard to understand why so many come to cold heartless canada every year.

Maybe you could explain that Griff. I’m sure there is a reason why so many are willing to uproot and move to the subarctic when they have it so good at home

Poor griff. Provably wrong as always

India…

“Of India’s total installed capacity of 374 GW, 53 percent (200 GW) was fired by coal at the end of 2020.”

Kenya

Kenya’s current effective installed (grid connected) electricity capacity is 1,429 MW. Electricity supply is predominantly sourced from hydro and fossil fuel (thermal) sources.

Actually, Sweden does get rather chilly in the winter. How does Greta (or her parents) heat that house all winter? If they don’t use oil or natural gas, do they have to cut down trees for fuel, destroying the beautiful forests? Or does Greta simply hop on a plane or sailboat and travel to a climate conference in the tropics to escape the winter?

The 5th Austrian World Summit, “one of the biggest environmental and climate summits in the world”, attended by multi-millionaires who flew in on their private jets, traveled to and from the conference via limousine, and stayed in five-star hotels. And what would a climate conference be without Scoldilocks, The Doom Pixie herself? Like Banquo’s ghost on an ultra HD screen, shaking a bloody finger at those in attendance, scolding them for not heeding her. Going on a rant about millionaires, billionaires, and those who are only interested in profits, etc. You know, the very same people who have funded her little jaunts all around the world. A mentally ill teenager who is basically a shut-in, dresses like a 10-year-old, has never worked a day in her life, and who has no educational background whatsoever, is FURIOUS that world leaders are not doing what SHE tells them to do? That they’re just USING her and her “movement” as a prop to score political points? News flash, sweetheart; that’s EXACTLY what they’re doing, and that’s EXACTLY what they ALWAYS do. You’re only JUST figuring that out? Obviously those 150+ weeks of “school strikes” aren’t exactly doing wonders for your education.

There is NO climate emergency going on that is the LIE you, the well paid warmist scientists the media and government officials promote every day

You couldn’t address what Willis Eschenbauch pointed out in his post Where is the climate emergency? neither has warmist/alarmists been able to handle it in several forums I posted it in.

But Griff there have been two of them. And they are published, produced and promoted world wide causing real scientists to scratch their heads wonder why nobody in the Propaganda Press will give them the same attention. Hmmm.

I have a thought griff why don’t you buy a copy of “No One Is Too Small to Make a Difference”, which might drive its sales up to double digits, and provide for everyone on WUWT a critical review of the childish screed. Make sure to explain what content within the book is so revelatory that it has garnered so much attention from the WORLDWIDE PRESS!

I would like to know why anyone should read a book about Climate Change written by a 16 year old girl who has absolutely no scientific background aside from being scared to death by a documentary produced by an ex-politician whose sole scientific education was 1 class in Earth Science for which he achieved a Politician’s Son “Gentleman’s C.” Now that part truly is an inconvenient truth.

Why would anyone feel threatened by someone who screams about how we need to dismantle the industrial economy that has given us a long and healthy and comfortable life?
By someone who says we need to give away all our vaccines to people who do not make any, until all of them have had a dose first?
By a person who goes on world tours urging legions of school children to do as she has done and drop out?
By a mollycoddled hypocrite who advocates for everyone to live lives of abject poverty, deprivation, and spartan austerity, while she herself lives high on the hog whilst travelling on world tours, yachting hither and yon as she pleases, never seems to wear the same (always high end and expensive) clothes twice, and eats a smorgasbord of yummy treats while starving wretches look on in misery…too weak from starvation to even beg for a dry crust crumb or moldy scrap for themselves?

Nope, no one is, because she is just another yammering stingy narcissist with delusions of sainthood.

The Industrial Revolution continue to advance, Space Age begins, which will have a side effect of moving Earth’s industry, off world.

But the reality is that, according to the paleoclimate record and the work done with models, the climate change we have been experiencing is caused by the sun and the oceans over which mankind has no control. Despite the hype, there is no real evidence that CO2 has any effect on climate and there is plenty of scientific rationale to support the conclusion that the climate sensitivity of CO2 is zero. Hence all the efforts to reduce CO2 emissions will have no effect on global climate. It is all a matter of science. Mankind does not even know what the optimum global climate actually is let alone how to achieve it. Hence there are no known actions to take that will lead to an improved global climate. I hope that Greta has been able to go back to school and to get more then just a very basic ” general science” science education.

I suspect she’s now in the same boat as Mann and Hansen.
She’ no longer useful for “The Cause” (which was never about climate) but they can’t admit that she and they are full of it without weakening the CAGW lever they’ve used to gain power.
So they sit and listen to her while looking at their watches wondering when she’ll shut up.
They keep paying Mann’s legal fees.
They just ignore Hansen and his calls for more nuclear power.
They can’t tear down their old “poster child”‘s without admitting the drive to control Mankind via the Man’s-CO2-emmissions lever is, and always has been, bogus.
Without the threat of avoiding the “C” (catastrophe!) in CAGW, who would vote for what they propose and do?
