Greta Thunberg: “We Might Still have Time to Turn Things Around”

Essay by Eric Worrall

Greta Wazzername trying to remain relevant in a world which has largely forgotten her.

Greta Thunberg on the climate delusion: ‘We’ve been greenwashed out of our senses. It’s time to stand our ground’

Greta Thunberg Sat 8 Oct 2022 19.00 AEDT

Governments may say they’re doing all they can to halt the climate crisis. Don’t fall for it – then we might still have time to turn things around

Maybe it is the name that is the problem. Climate change. It doesn’t sound that bad. The word “change” resonates quite pleasantly in our restless world. No matter how fortunate we are, there is always room for the appealing possibility of improvement. Then there is the “climate” part. Again, it does not sound so bad. If you live in many of the high-emitting nations of the global north, the idea of a “changing climate” could well be interpreted as the very opposite of scary and dangerous. A changing world. A warming planet. What’s not to like?

Perhaps that is partly why so many people still think of climate change as a slow, linear and even rather harmless process. But the climate is not just changing. It is destabilising. It is breaking down. The delicately balanced natural patterns and cycles that are a vital part of the systems that sustain life on Earth are being disrupted, and the consequences could be catastrophic. Because there are negative tipping points, points of no return. And we do not know exactly when we might cross them. What we do know, however, is that they are getting awfully close, even the really big ones. Transformation often starts slowly, but then it begins to accelerate.

We cannot live sustainably within today’s economic system. Yet that is what we are constantly being told we can do. We can buy sustainable cars, travel on sustainable motorways, powered by sustainable petroleum. We can eat sustainable meat and drink sustainable soft drinks out of sustainable plastic bottles. We can buy sustainable fast fashion and fly on sustainable aeroplanes using sustainable fuels. And, of course, we are going to meet our short- and long-term sustainable climate targets, too, without making the slightest effort.

Read more:

Greta, I’d love to hear your explanation of what flavour of communism could replace “today’s economic system”, to allow us to live sustainably, but not enough to buy your book.

In any case, since you skipped so much school, I could probably learn more about economic systems watching my pet fish, than reading or listening to your half baked juvenile economic theories.

Greta may have one talent – acting. This could have been inherited from her parents, but if so, she has exceeded their talents. She seems to be good at modelling the Aspergers role, even to the point of being able to model the “blow up” stage, as with the comments on the deep green world leaders that put her in the sin bin.

I think the alarmists have realized Greta was a PR mistake. School dropout with mild autism is not a good look for educated support of the ‘science’. The sailboat stunt was a brutal backfire, as the crew had to fly from the US to UK to sail her back to US. And her snarly scolding about COP26 did not go down well, as she pointed out it had failed and so failed her.

Old saying, you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. Greta is vinegar.

Back in the day, she could have cut up the corrupt Senator and lived off him for a Year. Saw him on the senate floor back then. He cast the shadow of a 747. No a literal shadow, at 3 axe handles across the shoulder the man was morbidly obese. He needed 2 senate seats to rest in place.

I’m not playing off that media induced “Lion of the Senate” BS. Somebody once said he was Lying in the Senate and a hard of hearing Dan Rather ran with that whole lion falderol.

Any similarity to Clarence’s species would be the Cowardly Lion soaked in Bushmills that ran from the Dyke Bridge on Chappaquiddick Island on July 18th, 1969 leaving Mary Jo Kopechne to drown.

Complte balderdash. People don’t even know what they are. It’s pure alarmist doom fantasy.

In reality, if any such tipping points existed, they’d have been triggered by any warming in the past. They obviously haven’t, so don’t exist. The whole scare falls apart on this single fact.

the most telling thing for me is that all such rubbish inherently admits that right now we live in a stable environment. How? Why? Noone cares.

a true scientist would investigate these buffer systems in order to understand them.

“‘We’ve been greenwashed out of our senses. It’s time to stand our ground’”

In this she is totally correct.

We really do need to get all this so-called “green” anti-environmental, anti-people anti-CO2 agenda out of politics and out of everything…

.. so that economies and energy supply have a chance to stabilise and progress (rather than be destroyed)

We should remind everyone that the substance that cause most “green”… is CO2. !

Something, anything to fill the inevitable void of your crises withdrawal. Buh bye, now.

It’s sad what has happened. I don’t think it’s her fault or she’s a bad person. I’m a year younger than her and when I first found out about climate change I was pretty depressed for a while. So I sympathize more with Greta’s situation. And then I found this page along with other realist pages. I have to say I may actually be the only realist among Gen Z; everyone I talk to about climate change thinks that winter will soon disappear thanks to two dry seasons most likely caused by La Niña. Climate realism badly needs more funding because it’s like David going after 10 Goliaths. Without more money, we simply cannot compete 🙁

Hang in there Bud. Like the famous quote says “sanity only returns one person at a time”. Im starting to detect some questioning amongst my kids cohort – 40ish, so more like GenX or Millennials – but they are the ones that are going to be running things soon. And they are concerned about by Grandkids future, questioning what they are being taught in school. The elite have overplayed their hand the last couple of years, and the silent majority who just want to get on with their lives, are starting to awake to the threat.
Whats going on is essentially a class war – and utlimately, that never ends well for the Aristocrats. Its going to cause a lot of damage in the meantime, though, and unfortunately, its going to have to be you young folk who fix that.

We have one thing we can compete with: The Facts.

The fact is the alarmists don’t have the facts to back up their dire climate change claims.

“A changing world. A warming planet. What’s not to like?”

Hard to disagree with that part.

The part about tipping points, not so much. It is not a delicate balance. Every thunderstorm takes a sledgehammer to the “delicate” atmosphere, and it works thousands of times more powerfully than the incremental static warming effect of increased concentration of CO2.
About 2000 thunderstorms are active on the planet at any one time, and there are about 16 million of them per year. A one-inch-per-hour rate of rainfall in a typical convective cell represents a 17,600 W/m^2 conversion of the latent energy of water vapor into work and motion to turn the atmosphere over bottom to top. A global tipping point from what non-condensing GHGs do? No.

Poor Greta. She’s a victim of “the cause” (Michael Mann’s term, and that tells you a lot about HIS thinking), just like those twits who block traffic and glue themselves to things. Cynically exploited by the leaders, because they don’t have the education or the intellect to be able to question the stories they’ve been indoctrinated with, paid by shadowy figures like Soros, and sent out to disrupt the lives of ordinary folk.

Greta seems to have been programmed by her parents, which makes it doubly shocking. I wonder what her chances of living a normal life are.

“You were led astray”

Article in Guardian 7th October 22 about a Just Stop Oil protest in London.

“Oliver Clegg, 19, a student at Manchester, who had glued his hand to the road said: “The climate crisis has a disproportionate effect on people who are already marginalised, including queer people. The climate crisis is a queer issue. Civil resistance is a potent expression of queerness”

Another student said “Enough is enough. We need an end to all fossil fuel extraction , a redistribution of wealth, and clean, affordable energy for all”

One 50 year old van driver stopped by the process said he understood why “because it’s people’s lives at risk. We need proper energy, renewable energy. At the same time we have a right to get to work”

To rephrase Star Wars ‘the astray-ness is deep with these ones’ but also obviously widespread.

I think that we routinely underestimate the intelligence of animals because they can’t talk. My former Rhodesian Ridgeback had a working vocabulary of about 20 nouns and verbs that I was aware of. If I said “rabbit,” she would look around; if I said “squirrel,” she would look up.

One time, when a friend was visiting, she reminded me that it was dinner time. I had always retrieved her bowl and filled it at feeding time. This time, in jest, I told her to go get her bowl and bring it to me. She immediately ran over to her bowl, but ran into some problems when it overturned and sat there like a metal turtle that she couldn’t get her mouth around. She was particularly good at interpreting my behavior, better than I was of hers.

October 9, 2022 3:24 pm

Pied Piper stuff. The young and naïve fall for the colourful and flashy “science” that is portrayed. Large amounts of money are demanded and those that fell for the scam are led to oblivion. As a child, Greta was regarded as being immune to being criticised- it is bad form to dash a child’s hopes. It might hurt their feelings.

If Greta is to be regarded as an adult- she turns 20 in January, she will have to be able to stand up to scrutiny. Will the left try to argue that her Asperger’s gives continued immunity to scrutiny? If so, it shows we are being asked to believe someone who is not a capable adult.
In Sweden, 18 is the age where one is considered an adult. At what age WILL Greta actually become a responsible adult? Why on earth should anyone act on the whims of someone who is not a responsible adult. We can listen, but we must scrutinize what they say to ascertain if it is valid.

What I am really waiting for is for Greta to have the penny-drop moment when she realizes it was all a load of garbage from day one. Who will she sue for being manipulated? Will she blow the whistle on the BS at some big climate luv-in? When she wakes up, will she address CPAC and Heartland, driving the climate cultists insane? Will they then go total hypocrite and attack her Asperger’s?

Just hope the mass Jonestown style suicide does not make a martyr out of Greta her sheep.
Perhaps, years in the future, Greta will see videos of her old “how dare you” temper tantrum and sour-puss expression being ignored by Donald Trump and realize what a total puppet she was.
Perhaps I should have sung the song for Greta-to a very catchy Jewish song-Dayenu. My version is best sung fast tempo.
There are no decent versions of it on YouTube to put my lyrics to, so readers will need a good imagination. Not an easy one to sing quickly. My version is pretty crook. Too lazy to practice it to perfection, but it is up on YouTube anyway. It is the thought that counts.

Greta is now an adult and I’m not sure she’d take that option – far too fond of having followers to get rid of herself or any of them. I think the vulnerable followers may be at risk but it’s not a given. My biggest fear is that they’ll just keep doing more and more extreme publicity stunts until, eventually, they’ll involve fatalities – gluing themselves to a rail line of boat or some such stupidity.

Now, I understand that the left hand side of our brains is mainly concerned with empathy, emotions, feelings and wishes rather than harsh, logical reality.

In a well balanced individual the two sides of the brain usually work together but can create tensions which need to resolved.
IMO the image of Greta here gives strong indication that something is wrong and she is likely to be talking rubbish, albeit articulate.

“The AP has, for example, received an $8 million grant to do
climate advocacy “reporting””

MSM’s trying to use “farce checkers” to help Green groups get Steve
Milloy deplatformed as they’re complaining to Big Tech social media
that his posts are “akin to hate speech & lies about Covid-19”.
These billionaires’ orgs. are giving $8M to AP- Hewlett, Howard Hughes,
James Murdoch, Rockefeller & the Walton Family. Since they couldn’t
disprove what he said on one Tweet, all they could do was draw an “X”
over the Tweet which Steve had based on a WUWT graph.

Go get ’em, Steve!

How pathetic are the alarmists. They can’t come up with an argument that refutes skeptics claims, so their only alternative is to deplatform and shut up their tormentor.

But they can’t change the facts. The facts say there is no evidence that CO2 will do any harm to anyone.

October 9, 2022 5:29 pm

Greta changed her storyline to include sufficient time to save the world for unproven reasons, yet her message is identical.

No dice child!
Even after denying the known world, heat, food, cooling, transportation, etc. none of the governments can reduce CO₂ enough to meet your demands or to reduce temperatures.

Of course it does, sweetie.

Good question.

The New Congress needs to look into that.

They need to investigate everything the Obama-Biden administration did in Ukraine and elsewhere, and they need to investigate the Biden-Harris administration. Both administrations are corrupt and traitorous and the American people need to know all this.

And don’t leave Hillary out of the investigation. She’s in the corruption and traitorous behavior up to her neck.

The last three Democrat administrations need to be held accoutable. Of course, that is made easier since most of the criminals in the current Biden administration were also in the Obama administration and many were in the Clinton administration. All corrupt. All seeking to create a Democrat Dictatorship in the United States by hook or crook.

All their nefarious activities need to be exposed for all to see. Otherwise, we lose our Republic.

It takes years of studies and hard work to acquire a skill in any field, be it plumbing or climate science. But to acquire a skill of a scoundrel you don’t need to spend much time. All you need is to have no shame. Greta is practicing the art of being a scoundrel.

Reply to  ozspeaksup

Oz, I agree!
I stridently reject “sustainability” at every turn in my work in higher education administration. Sustainism is the realm of small-thinking, woke busybodies, accomplishing nothing but virtue signaling and greenwashing, and leaving destruction in their wake. Sustainists are almost uniformly (97%, maybe?) cut from the same lunatic fringe, socialist cloth.

Rather, I push environmental stewardship, working in support and in concert with growth and development.

As for “unprecedented,” that word is rolled out as a lazy substitute for the lack of historical research and perspective. As King Solomon (it is believed) said in the Book of Ecclesiastes, “there is nothing new under the sun.” Unprecedented is simply an attempt at sensationalism to garner attention.

The Penetration Problem. Part I: Wind and Solar – The More You Do, The Harder It Gets

From Dr. Judith Curry’s Climate Etc.

There is a belief, by mostly among energy illiterates, increasing the level of wind and solar systems will get easier as more and more wind and solar systems are added to the grid.
Nothing could be further from the truth.

Think of expensive grid expansions and augmentations all over the US
Think of super-expensive grid-scale battery systems
Think of increasing capacities, MW, of existing power plants operating at variable outputs (less efficient, just as a car in urban areas) to counteract the increasingly larger up and down quantities of wind and solar outputs, 24/7/365

The challenge may be better understood as akin to pushing a huge rock, which is getting heavier and heavier, up a steeper and steeper slope, while the ground below is getting slicker and more unstable.

The drawbacks associated with increased penetration of wind and solar totally swamp any potential benefits that might be achieved through economies of scale, as Europe, which practiced an expensive, decades-long, wind/solar experiment, made possible by:

1) Huge subsidies,
2) Low interest rates,
3) Low inflation rates
4) Stable fuel and materials prices
5) A plentiful supply of low-cost oil, coal, and gas from Russia.

Items 2, 3, 4 and 5 have drastically changed, due to the predictable blowback of the EU’s hasty, vengeful, ill-considered sanctions to punish Russia, which will certainly caused a European recession, and may cause a worldwide recession.

The bulk power system has traditionally been strong and very robust, with a 99.98% reliability of service.
Adding minor percentages of wind and solar, say 5% of each, causes only minor problems.
Wind and solar rely on the electrical system for support, because they could not be admitted to the grid without it.

Wind and solar do not support the electrical system, as do almost all other generating plants tied to the grid.

The electrical system has a limited spare capacity to accommodate the variable outputs from wind and solar systems, which would displace some fossil fuel generation.

At low penetration of wind and solar, say 3 to 4%, one kWh of solar/wind may displace the CO2 of about 0.9 kWh of fossil fuel generation, due to minor system inefficiencies 

At high penetration of wind and solar, say 16 to 18%, one kWh of wind/solar may displace the CO2 of only about 0.6 kWh of fossil fuel generation, due to major system inefficiencies.
