Greta Thurnburg Speaks Truth

Chuckle. She speaks the truth even if it’s not the truth she thinks she’s speaking.

(CNN)Teen activist Greta Thunberg on Friday again criticized world leaders gathered for the COP25 conference in Madrid for not doing enough to stop the ecological crisis that’s damaging the planet.

“We have been striking for over a year, and basically nothing has happened,” she told activists at the talks.
Yep. Because teens “striking” (read: skipping school so they can be dumber) doesn’t actually do anything.
She warned that “it is impossible for anyone to know how the world will look in 10 years”
Yep. Which is why we shouldn’t upend our entire political and economic systems based on dubious predictions from climate change activists.
“Because every chance we get to improve the situation we must take,” Thunberg said ahead of a planned Friday march in the Spanish capital.
If so, scenes like this make her a flaming hypocrite.
Thunberg arrived in Lisbon after nearly three weeks at sea, after two Australian vloggers offered her a ride from the United States on their catamaran, La Vagabonde.

“Every chance,” eh?

    “Thunberg refuses to fly because of the high levels of emissions emitted in air travel and instead uses boats, trains and electric cars.”

    No problem flying her boat skippers intercontinental, though. Wonder what her thoughts are on lithium mining…

    “Around 25,000 people from 200 countries are expected to attend COP25, …..”

    And every one of them a flaming hypocrite.

    Liberals waste a lot of energy in hot air.

    I always watch Leonard Nimoy’s “In search of…” from 1978 where they quote data and scientists that ice age may be iminent inside of 200 years.

    I’m far more scared of ice age based on that data.

    These people that claim warming are just nuts, and not listening to the data.

    You’ll also notice that that very high tech fiber cat is coming in with its sails down… under power.

    You mean….

    …. twin Volvo diesel engines drinking 55 gallons of on-board Texas Tea pushing 17,000 lbs of CO2 and NOx spewing three-stage furnace fired mined silica sand glass fibers chemically treated and then chemically bonded to oil-based plastics?!?

    Not to mention the diesel-powered crane:

    Nawwwwww. Grouchy Greta is as clean as the driven snow.

    Oh wait. According to the UK Independent (2000) and the BBC (2016) “snow is a thing of the past”.

    jjf, I feel sorry for her as she is being used and brainwashed by adults.

  8. Mar

    Meaning she is going be burned at the stake?

  9. Le Roi du Nord

    No mar, a strong, smart young woman that frightens conservatives.

    The indoctrination of children…  you mean like Sunday school?

    jjf, you finally admitted that climate change is a religion. Good for you.
