Greta Thunberg and Dr. Evil. Fair Use, Political Parody

Greta Thunberg Spurns COP27, Lays Out Plans for World Domination

Essay by Eric Worrall

“In order to change things, we need everyone—we need billions of activists”

Greta Thunberg blasts attention-seeking COP27 leaders and says she’ll skip the ‘greenwashing’ climate summit

Thunberg has also thrown her support behind headline-making activism.

October 31, 2022 9:07 AM EDT

Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg has declined her invitation to the biggest climate conference in the world, calling it a forum for “greenwashing.”

Speaking at a Q&A for the launch of her new book, Thunberg announced she would be skipping the 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference, otherwise known as COP27, held in Egypt next week, as it has become a platform for attention-grabbing politicians. 

“I’m not going to COP27 for many reasons, but the space for civil society this year is extremely limited,” Thunberg said.

“COPs are mainly used as an opportunity for leaders and people in power to get attention, using many different kinds of greenwashing.”

“In order to change things, we need everyone—we need billions of activists,” she said on Sunday.

The move pushes her further away from politicians in Europe who have called for a ban on these protests.

I can’t help thinking trash talking your closest allies is probably not the best way to build an army of “billions of activists”. Working with others produces better results. I mean look at how close the WEF has come to world domination, by working with others. I’m sure World Economic Forum founder Klaus Schwab believes plenty of the people he works with are less than perfect, but he makes the best of a bad lot.

Greta mentioned other issues without being too specific. One of those unspecified issues is likely that it is rather difficult to reach Sharm El Sheikh safely by anything other than air.

Sharm El Sheikh itself might be relatively safe, if you ignore all the terrorist attacks, but it is surrounded by some of the most dangerous places on Earth. Safely reaching Sharm El Sheikh via surface transport is a challenge.

For example, British cyclist Dan Hood, who is currently trying to reach Sharm El Sheikh by bicycle, is currently cycling through downtown Baghdad in Iraq. At some point he is going to have to cross the pirate infested Gulf of Aden, or possibly cross the Suez Canal bridge at Al-Qantara. Not a cycling route I would choose to attempt.

Endurance swimmer Lewis Pugh is attempting to swim to Egypt – through some of the most polluted and pirate infested waters on Earth.

Maybe the world still has a use for air travel after all.

On a happier note, there are rumours that Dr. Evil is about to get his own movie. Lets hope the producers have the guts to make Dr. Evil an environmental leader – and give him a daughter.

Shades of the price of everything “energy” since the nutjobs installed Obiden in the oval orifice.
Amazing to me how that one action by the left, replacing energy friendly Trump with the Potatous, has brought out the truly evil folks across the planet. Now, let’s see what happens when the pendulum swings the other way. And it is swinging, rapidly. Not quick enough to save the EU this winter, but moving away from the completely fact free climate silliness to the possible reinstatement of sound energy policies across the globe.
Wishful thinking? Maybe.

October 31, 2022 7:06 pm

Apparently, Greta is autistic. She thinks it’s a super power. She’s right.

A super power is good or evil, depending on how it’s wielded. In the case of autism, it’s probably going to be evil.

Autism, schizophrenia, and right hemisphere strokes have a lot in common. There is the inability to understand context. There is a disconnect from reality. There is overconfidence.

If you argue with a madman, it is extremely probable that you will get the worst of it; for in many ways his mind moves all the quicker for not being delayed by the things that go with good judgment. He is not hampered by a sense of humour or by charity, or by the dumb certainties of experience. He is the more logical for losing certain sane affections. Indeed, the common phrase for insanity is in this respect a misleading one. The madman is not the man who has lost his reason. The madman is the man who has lost everything except his reason.

G.K. Chesterton

The other thing about the left hemisphere is that it incapable of realizing that it might be wrong. Ah yes, there is also the lack of interpersonal skills.

It’s unsurprising that someone with a dominant left hemisphere could argue with the tenacity of a bull dog, be completely inflexible, and be completely undaunted by facts that disprove their orthodoxy. It’s also unsurprising that such a person would reject anyone who deviates, even slightly, from that orthodoxy.

I would also guess that Greta lacks a sense of humor. Many years ago, a very wise lady told me that humorless people are dangerous and to be avoided. Over the decades I’ve never had reason to doubt that wisdom.

And, given the billions of money at stake for investors in solar, wind, electric vehicles, bogus surface temperature data products, and other CO2 scams, it’s unsurprising that their market developers/promoters use her.

As with Brandon, it is shameful. Cynical, out-to-make-a-buck, crooks using severely impaired people to sell.

And, as has been said here many times:

a FAMILY that can do that to their loved one is cruel, indeed.

It is obvious, thus: they are NOT loved.

So. It all boils down to one thing: love. Of truth…. of freedom….. of people…..

No love and you can do ANYTHING.

It’s quite apparent that she is grossly ignorant of the facts and speaks only from her indoctrination. An action that doesn’t necessarily require Asperger’s syndrome, only a desire to confirm ones ingrained conception of reality.(bias). I think think the buzz about her being in the autistic spectrum is somewhat of a circus stunt and simply draws attention away from how mercilessly brainwashed this unfortunate young lady really is.

Greta went to Franska Skolan private school in central Stockholm from 2010 to 2018, then transferred to Kringlaskolan school in Södertälje where she completed her 9th Grade ( lower secondary education in Sweden) in 2019. She scored 14 As and 3 Bs. Read more:

Greta Thunberg’s net worth, age, parents, house, honors, quotes, profiles –

I don’t claim to know how it works in Sweden, but in the U.S., 9th grade is the end of Jr. High School, followed by High School, then Uni. Most people finish Jr. High at age 14 or 15, depending on when their birthday falls. It appears Greta took an extra couple of years or so to make it that far.

My DuckDuckGo search on what University Greta was attending yielded no results. I did find the above linked bio with the quoted information about her education.

Even at this young age, Ms Thunberg is demonstrating strong convictions and strong actions. These can be desirable attributes. However, her mind cannot possibly comprehend the many complexities of climate research. She will be a very unhappy person when she realises all that effort was backing the wrong horse in the climate change stakes. I hope that she can find competent advisors to help cushion the mental reversal, which could destroy her. No person should wish that on another. Geoff S

I’m being picky here. But it would be better to replace “Made with” with “Made from” in that image.

“She was at COP24 in Poland, COP25 in Spain, and last year’s COP26
in Glasgow, where she memorably slammed leaders’ pledges as so much
“blah blah blah.”

Distance is no obstacle; having sworn off flying because of its
climate-wrecking emissions, Thunberg sailed by zero-carbon yacht to
New York for the Climate Action Summit in 2019.

But the Sharm El-Sheikh venue is a step too far- into “a tourist
paradise in a country that violates many basic human rights”

While continuing her quest to be “greener than thou”, St Greta always
comes up short & has to do a lot of pretending, like her hypocritical
green mentors. While claiming to sail to NYC on a “zero-carbon racing
yacht made of hydrocarbons, she used a lot of 24/7 solar products to
get there. Along with that, her crew flew back to Europe.

She did get it right at COP26 by slamming leaders’ pledges as so much
“blah blah blah.” She continues to “wrack up points” by calling Sharm
El-Sheikh “a tourist paradise”, but then assumes the hypocrisy mantel
by pointing out that Egypt does violate “many basic human rights” but
ignores that Green Zealots’ fail there, too.

Globally, they deny people 24/7 solar products that would immensely
improve their lives & often times, keep them from dying prematurely.
All that “rock throwing” done to reveal others’ hypocrisies is done
for the sake of a so-called problem that, in fact, could turn out to
be a boon to humanity!

She’s being nothing less than brutally honest – as folks such as she tend to be..

The enquiring mind wonders if, in light of the difficulties of getting to the selected place, is that is why they went there. Because Greta couldn’t, that Greta actually has Principles and practises Honesty

Wild ass theory: She scares the pants off them and they didn’t didn’t want her there

Ain’t that sooo very very lovely – effectively the very folks who suffered Trump Derangement Syndrome (because he didn’t beleive in Climate Science) are now having Greta Derangement Syndrome – because she does beleive in their junk science.

I’m not sure that she does practice honesty. Her lifestyle seems to have a larger carbon footprint than mine. I’ve never been to the locations of any COP conference apart from Glasgow and that was only about 45 miles from where I grew up. Usually to visit my Grandmother in Govan, very rarely after she died. I also suspect she has a more fossil fuel rich lifestyle than I do, even before Net Zero made energy and therefore everything else skyrocket im price.

The only excuse she can have is ignorance of the facts, and that’s not an excuse in her case

I have worked with a few people who were on the autism spectrum, and they were socially inept, in that they just didn’t respond to your attempts to make friends with them. They also tended to talk to you about things they were interested in, often in great detail, and they didn’t seem to notice that they were boring you.

They would make clumsy attempts to seem friendly. A frequent strategy was to overpraise you, even though they seemed mystified by genuine kindness and generosity. If you are autistic, you can try to hide it, but normal people will spot you as socially strange in a few minutes.

Someone I suspect of being autistic is Bob Dylan, who is consistently rude to people, because he just doesn’t care if anyone likes him or not. Apparently, in his concerts, he does not speak to the audience between songs. The way he just ignored the Nobel committee for several weeks after they named him as the winner of the Prize for Literature was just plain strange in its rudeness. Finally he accepted the Prize, probably because somebody had told him that it came with a large cash award, but then he declined to accept it in person. His acceptance speech referenced Moby Dick, but was cribbed from an essay in Cliff’s Notes. Consider the irony of somebody receiving the Nobel Prize for literature, and mailing in an acceptance speech that was plagiarized.

Bidenesque – An incredibly stupid statement. Bidenesque takes its name from Vice President Joe Biden who continually makes incredibly stupid statements.

For example, “Look, John’s last-minute economic plan does nothing to tackle the number-one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S, jobs.” –Joe Biden

Or, “When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, ‘Look, here’s what happened.” –Joe Biden, apparently unaware that FDR wasn’t president when the stock market crashed in 1929 and that only experimental TV sets were in use at that time

“In order to change things, we need everyone—we need billions of activists”
As J M Barrie said: “I’m not young enough to know everything”
I’m sure with Greta’s enormous intellect and wisdom she is aware of Buckminster Fuller?
” Take away the energy-distributing networks and the industrial machinery from America, Russia, and all the world’s industrialized countries, and within six months more than two billion swiftly and painfully deteriorating people will starve to death. Take away all the world’s politicians, all the ideologies and their professional protagonists from those same countries, and send them off on a rocket trip around the sun and leave all the countries their present energy networks, industrial machinery, routine production and distribution personnel, and no more humans will starve nor be afflicted in health than at present.
Fortunately, the do-more-with-less invention initiative does not derive from political debate, bureaucratic licensing, or private economic patronage. The license comes only from the blue sky of the inventor’s intellect. No one licensed the inventors of the airplane, telephone, electric light, and radio to go to work. It took only the personally dedicated initiative of five men to invent those world transforming and world shrinking developments. Herein lies the unexpectedly swift effectiveness of the design-science revolution. Despite this historical demonstrable fact, world society as yet persists in looking exclusively to its politicians and their ideologues for world problem solving.”

Here is an image from Mao’s Cultural Revolution. Seems frighteningly similar to now.
Our beloved leader, Herr Schwab wrote this in his book where he invites himself to re-imagine the world:
Page 102 – Youth activism is increasing worldwide, being revolutionized by social media that increases mobilization to an extent that would have been impossible before. It takes many different forms, ranging from non-institutionalized political participation to demonstrations and protests, and addresses issues as diverse as climate change, economic reforms, gender equality and LGBTQ rights. The young generation is firmly at the vanguard of social change. There is little doubt that it will be the catalysts for change and a source of critical momentum for the Great Reset.

Economic Systems: The alarmists keep telling us their concern about global warming is all about man’s stewardship of the environment. But we know that’s not true. A United Nations official has now confirmed this.
At a news conference last week in Brussels, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism.
“This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution,” she said.
Referring to a new international treaty environmentalists hope will be adopted at the Paris climate change conference later this year, she added: “This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model for the first time in human history.”
The only economic model in the last 150 years that has ever worked at all is capitalism. The evidence is prima facie: From a feudal order that lasted a thousand years, produced zero growth and kept workdays long and lifespans short, the countries that have embraced free-market capitalism have enjoyed a system in which output has increased 70-fold, work days have been halved and lifespans doubled.

Indeed. But the feudal system and zero sum game was mostly all there was from the beginning of agriculture, making the change to an capitalist/engineering/modern farming model even more remarkable and important.
