Even if you only irregularly follow mainstream news, you have probably come across Greta Thunberg, a shockingly unattractive 16-year-old Swedish girl with autism whose family is part of the societal elites. You may wonder what you could learn from an ugly teenage girl who seems to have skipped puberty. If you said that there was nothing at all, you would be exactly right. Yet, the mainstream has manufactured a genuine media circus around this girl. I don’t want to implicate Greta Thunberg too much here. I think she is largely an unwitting pawn in a game she does not even know she’s playing.
Let us backtrack a little: Greta Thunberg rose to fame for her climate activism. She somehow got convinced that the world is ending, this time due to man-made global warming, and therefore should no longer have to go to school. The world is ending anyway, so why bother learning anything? Two decades ago, we were told about an impending ice age, but, hey, this time “the science is settled”, like, for real. (Why would leftist ever lie to you?) Greta Thunberg then traveled to some big-shot conference in Europe and was filmed giving a speech there. The published material made it look and sound as if she was officially invited. Instead, as footage that later emerged shows, her handlers simply put her behind the lectern during a break. This was the start of a most cynical campaign.
Fast forward a few months and, particularly in Germany, there are now weekly protests of school children. They have been going on for well over half a year. These children demonstrate against the supposed inactivity of the political elites to stop man-made global warming, even though it is not even clear that it exists. Sure, tell your average moronic kid that they don’t have to attend school, and you can most likely motivate them to attend any demonstration. Teachers’ unions got in on the action, too, presumably because teachers do not want to spend any time in school either. There are no proper arguments presented during those demonstrations, only a lot of shouting and name-calling, and countless demands.
What is most cynical is that governments have begun to ride that wave by increasing the tax burden. Germany is working hard on new taxes that will squeeze the middle class even further. We learn that cars are evil and so are airplanes. What those little morons don’t seem to understand, though, is that the infrastructure that powers the Internet and enables their boundless narcissism is responsible for CO2 emissions that rival the entire aviation industry. It’s probably a complete accident that this never gets mentioned. Things could be so easy, though. They could start by going completely offline.
Even funnier is that this ugly little autistic girl from Sweden now gets to talk to world leaders and ex-leaders like Macron, Merkel, or Obama. She didn’t want to talk to Donald Trump, however. The other day she even threw a fit at the UN headquarters in NYC. We really do live in
All of this is just a charade, set up to bamboozle the mindless masses, however. (Wait what will happen when she gets awarded the Nobel Peace prize.) Of course, Greta Thunberg knows nothing. Yet, she is used and abused as a poster child of a fabricated movement that only exists to further increase governmental control. You will get more taxes. Who knows, maybe flights for the plebs will be rationed. The useful idiots of the left, however, all believe that none of this will ever affect them.
If the debate around man-made climate change was carried out seriously and honestly, we would first look at the available evidence, including evidence our leftist opinion makers do not like. Based on what I have read, a fundamental problem is that we cannot even measure temperatures precisely enough. Historial records are therefore highly unreliable. How about we sort this out before we engage in any further debates? Furthermore, we should look at the status of CO2. Is this really an issue? Recall that plants need it. If there was no CO2, we would have a serious problem. Heck, weed-growers pump CO2 into their greenhouses to make their plants develop better. So, is CO2 only bad if you don’t use it to grow your effing weed plants or what? Lastly, assuming CO2 is indeed a problem, we would also need to go through all industries that are problematic, not just those that the left does not like, such as the automotive and aviation industries. I bet if we shut down Facebook, the net effect on the world’s CO2 production would be quite significant but that would hardly be a popular measure.
I just made a brief list of a few tasks that would take a lot of effort. Sure, we could do all that, but then there is the risk that we might get results we don’t like. Certainly, you would piss off a bunch of young voters who are saddled with student debts. They cannot afford their own car, let alone frequent flights, anyway. If you told them that we have found out that data centers are highly problematic and that we
