Michael “Robust Debate” Mann Thinks St. Greta Is Actually A Climate Denier

Mann just made St. Greta’s list. This is rather a scorching hot take as we see different sects start to appear within the Cult of Climastrology. In all fairness to St. Greta, she at least sorta attempts to walk the talk

Does Greta Thunberg’s Lifestyle Equal Climate Denial? One Climate Scientist Seems To Suggest So.

The climate debate has taken a nasty turn. It is no longer a shouting match between climate affirmers and climate deniers. Now the finger-wagging is taking place among climate affirmers on the subject of personal responsibility for combating climate change.

There are two key actors in this unfolding saga. One embraces the importance of individual responsibility while the other derides it.

Greta Thunberg, the new climate icon, does not fly. She is a vegan and subscribes to the stop-shop philosophy, which means that “you don’t buy new things, consume new things, unless you absolutely have to.” In a recent interview, Greta said, “I want to walk the talk, and to practice as I preach. So that is what I’m trying to do.”

In contrast, Michael Mann, a prominent climate scientist, suggests that any talk of behavioral changes and personal responsibility reflects a soft form of climate denial. Although he did not mention Greta by name, he said: “First of all, there is an attempt being made by them to deflect attention away from finding policy solutions to global warming towards promoting individual behaviour changes that affect people’s diets, travel choices and other personal behaviour…. This approach is a softer form of denial and in many ways it is more pernicious.”

See, the thing is, St. Greta doesn’t seem to understand that this isn’t really about the climate, it’s just a convenient scapegoat to emplace Progressive (nice Fascism) policies, with the government implementing lots of taxes and fees, controlling the lives of citizens, removing choice and freedom, dictating to private entities, controlling the energy, the economy, and everything. We can also refer to this as Modern Socialism. They want to do away with capitalism. They want to tell you what you can buy, what you can eat, where you can live, and where you can travel. How many kids you can have. Where you work. How much money you can have. Man-caused climate change is their platform.

And St. Greta isn’t helping them with her “I’ll at least attempt to practice what I preach” lifestyle. Though, with all due respect to Mann, she does want those same Progressive policies, she just doesn’t know it. With her “how dare you!” yammering she’s pushing to have them installed.

Because these are massive, system-wide changes, individual-level actions to become climate virtuous will not suffice. We can buy electric cars, but without charging stations, they are quite useless. And a national network of charging stations can be provided only by the government.

Really? The national, and heck, international, network of gas stations were not provided by government. But this is the way climate cultists, part of the larger Modern Socialist movement, think. To them, government is always the answer. Right up to Government interferes with their own life, of course.

The bottom line is that when people take personal responsibility, they begin to have skin in the game. Climate action becomes personal and it makes them more politically assertive in demanding policy changes. Instead of pointing fingers at individuals who walk the climate talk, climate scientists should start doing it themselves.

Well, looks like Mann is Old News, as the article is taking the side of St. Greta. But, no worries: you know the majority of Warmists lauding St. Greta will not change their own lives to match their talking points.

    I have news for Greta. The solar boat she used. They had to fly two crew members across the ocean to get it…….BZZZZZZ…..it would have been cheaper carbon wise for you to fly.

    VEGAN? BZZZZZZZZ you lose….it takes a TON OF CO2 to produce all those veggies you eat………BZZZZZZ.

    as for Michael Mann, he’s just jealous he no longer matters in the climate debate, is a pariah, lost a court case against Professor Ball which said he should be in the Pen not at Penn state. Lololol.

    All he had to do was produce his research on the hockey stick and he would have won if there was any truth in the research. He however as does the Russian scientists that warned him he was using false data to concoct his hockey stick, knows his research would not stand up to any kind of scrutiny, therefore, he did whatever liar does.

    UH, I lost it. UH, I can’t find it. Seriously? The most important research in the history of research since were all gonna die because of it and you LOSE IT?

    Sometimes the left comes up with ideas I like. Not very often but sometimes but its comical how they think the government should build and run everything. These must all be people who have mommy and daddy issues and never got nurturing when they were children.

    I mean why does a group of people want an out of control, unaccountable government to run their lives.

    I can only surmise that their parents were unaccountable and out of control when they were growing up. They probably left them with babysitters who did drugs and let them watch porn while they had sex with their boyfriends on the couch. Their parents let the teachers berate and beat them. They were bullied in school and their parents didn’t do anything about it.

    I mean I don’t know why a group of people want an out of control and unaccountable government to run anything except the military. I really don’t. I think they have decided that corporations that get rich off the people are evil when a government filled with lairs, thieves and cheats all getting rich off the people is a better option.

    Insane because at least with a corporation, you can use Verizon if you don’t like Sprint. Or go to McDonald’s if you don’t like Wendys. You can buy a Ford if you don’t like Chevy. You can choose to watch Netflix or not. You can buy your gas from a dozen different gas stations and if you don’t Like Charmin you can use Stofftewipemclean If you don’t like Porknbeans you can buy Bushs.

    In short, you have a plethora of choices.

    With the government, you get two choices. Do what we say or go to jail. Buy this, because thats all there is.

      A good example of this was Obamacare. The government forcing us to buy insurance.

      If the left had stopped to think for one moment why this was so wrong they would have demanded this be removed from our lives.

      The only thing this did was enrich the corporations they hate. Obama himself let the health insurance industry write Obamacare which of course we all know was written to fail because once you put the fox inside the henhouse it’s not long before your out of hens.

      In this case, the insurance industry cut our healthcare coverage in half and almost doubled the premiums, in essence, quadrupling their haul. How the left could not see this was going to happen is beyond me. But as I’ve been told they were in it for the long game, believing the GOP would never have a president or be in charge of the government again and they could do what they wanted.

      This is why for the last 3 years they have been in a fevered uproar, mindlessly running amuck and lashing out at anything and everyone including themselves.

      Bill Mahrer talking about Nikki Haley this week:

      “She kind of acquitted herself at her job at the U.N.,” Maher added. “She went full-on Team Deplorable this week.”

      We are still deplorables and when Clinton made those remarks, the left agreed vigorously.
