Should have asked her about the phone she is using the clothes she is wearing and the method she uses to get to around.

I’m hoping that none of the above involves plastic, oil derived fuels or coal fired power.

Then again. Thick is thick no matter how you see the world.

Some people SHOULD go to school.

I know a lot of people like that, they want to pretend that they are not doing the things that they do and tell others not to do, but it is okay for them because they are doing their parts by telling the little peasants not to do it. I bet she take happy pills to fight the cognitive dissonance. The lefties I know are such hypocrites.

But Izzy, and her mother sound truly ignorant. The real hypocrites are Kerry, Gore, DiCaprio, Biden, Pelosi, AOC, Mann, and their ilk. They know they’re hypocrites, deep down. Izzy is in la-la land, clueless, abused/bullied by her Mom into believing her life is at stake over climate change. She forced Izzy onto the plane to Fiji. Sure. Good mother. Wanted to spend quality time with her daughter by giving her nightmares about flying to Fiji. Yeah, right.

I’d suggest that the mother is a total “Karen”.

(Karen is a pejorative slang term for an obnoxious, angry, entitled, woman who uses her privilege to get her way or police other people’s behaviours.)

The daughter didn’t even want to go to Fiji, she was forced to go by her god awful mother.

She’s the one who should be ashamed.

The interviewer can’t stop laughing at the absurdity. We need more reporters like that, to properly mock the over-the-top claims. Do Peter Kalmus.

Nick Stokes’ IQ is more than the sum of Izzy’s and Griff’s added together, perhaps even multiplied together! Smart is not always wise, though and perhaps someday he will come to the realization that there is no climate emergency.

These people want to have “young leaders”, but also want those supposed “leaders” to be immune from scrutiny and criticism. These “young leaders” they are wheeling out are just ideological proxies for the neo-Marxists that are behind this, as they are well aware that their Marxist policies do not hold up to even mild scrutiny.

If you are a young person and don’t want to be criticized, particularly if you are guilty of abject hypocrisy, then don’t put your hand up to be a “leader”. Something the very young should never do, because they are naive and very easily misled by malicious forces.

Alan Watt, Climate Denialist Level 7
September 27, 2022 5:21 pm

I’m at a loss to understand how organizing high school students to strike (not attend classes) could make any useful contribution to “fighting climate change”.

Note to Izzy:

We live in an industrial civilization, for which if you have paid any attention to history classes you should be profoundly grateful, and not just because it enables you to visit exotic places like Fiji. Abandoning industrial civilization would mean roughly 6 out of the 7.5 billion people alive today would have to perish by starvation, assuming they don’t die in the resulting violent chaos first.

Just maintaining the industrial civilization we have requires that a sufficient number of people master essential skills. We ensure this by providing at least 12 years of formal education at public expense. Managing the major industrial transformation you demand requires even more and higher-skilled people, which means more study. See “Great Leap Forward” for what happens when such a transformation is forced by people who don’t know what they are doing. You can look this up in Wikipedia while on strike from your regular classes.

Spoiled “climate activists” who organize school strikes are in effect refusing to master the skills needed to address the very problem to which they demand the rest of us pay attention.

Bottom line: I’ll take you seriously when you take your own responsibilities seriously.

The thing about encounters like the one here is, the hypocrite young lady does not recognise the conflict of position she is involved in.
She can sail along claiming to be oh so climate concerned so active in here thinking and voicing of actions needed then fly off to somewhere nice to enjoy her wealth. She is oblivious to the hypocrisy and is oblivious to the demand for universal poverty her desired climate actions bring with them.
She will happily go on another holiday to a lovely place certain she is virtuous and that is all that matters to her.
Do as I say not as I do is the principle Climate Alarmist position. think Al Gore or John Kerry or Barack Obama. Think Emma Thompson or DiCaprio as he comes ashore onto a tropical paradise having journeyed there in his private yacht.
