St. Greta Is Totally Correct In Her “It’s Not About Me” Tweet Or Something

Forbes’ John Brandon is squeeing over a St. Greta of Stockholm tweet, and, you know what? I agree with his headline. But, for a different reason

Why Greta Thunberg Is Totally Correct In Her Latest Climate Change Tweet

“It’s not about me.”

That’s from a tweet by climate change activist Greta Thunberg today, and it’s absolutely true. It’s as true as anything she has ever said.

At the start of a new year, it’s a surprisingly refreshing attitude from the Time person of the year and a well-known advocate for the global crisis, at only 17-years-old.

The post arrived after the musician Meatloaf called out the activist as being “brainwashed” in an article that ran in the Daily Mail over the weekend.

“She has been brainwashed into thinking that there is climate change, and there isn’t,” he said. “She hasn’t done anything wrong, but she’s been forced into thinking that what she is saying is true.”

St. Greta responded

Brandon loves this

That’s a bold post because it is a departure from what we’ve seen from high-profile figures in the past, who are constantly claiming it is all about them.

Thunberg now has almost four million followers but is a regular figure on talk shows, news programs, and on social media.

What’s refreshing is to take a step back from the celebrity status and point back to the issue she is championing, and to also disarm detractors by relaying actual scientific facts. The chart she posted is quite alarming.

See, he loves it that she isn’t trying to make it about herself, not being narcissistic. He’s correct on the not making it about herself part, because she’s trying to shame governments into passing all sorts of laws, rules, and regulations that force Other People to live the life she demands they live. That Other People pay taxes and fees, along with restricting their freedom, liberty, and choice.

However, it’s commendable that someone on social media finally (finally) has tried to reorient the conversation back to the actual topic rather than constant trolling and name-calling.

Let’s ask: what does she actually know? Does she actually use her vast experience as a climate scientist to discuss the science? Oh, right, she’s a teenage girl who’s blowing off school, and has no degrees at all. In anything. Listen to her speeches. She actually tends to avoid any science. Her tweets post other people’s fear-mongering material. It’s always the Worst Possible (scam) Scenario with her.

Here’s the actual topic: prove that the minor temperature increase since 1850 is mostly/solely caused by the greenhouse gas output from the activities of Mankind.

    What evidence/data would prove to TEACH that the significant and ongoing increase in the mean global surface temperature is resulting from CO2 emissions?

    Can’t say? How will you know if it’s proven, then?

    Maybe you can offer an alternative theory? No?

    • formwiz says:

      Honest data would be a start.

      Then again, someone other than a known liar as a front man might also help.

    • alanstorm says:

      A significant and ongoing increase would be a start. Sadly, the AGW proponents all have to “fix” the data in order to sell their wares.

  2. Kye says:

    First you’d have to prove to Teach the the mean global surface temperature is both significant and ongoing since in the past it’s been higher, lower and not ongoing but fluctuating. Then prove it’s both harmful and reversible.

    I’ll tell you what will never convince Teach or anybody else is constantly calling us deniers and other names and constantly considering a skeptical approach as some sort of scientific heresy. Trying to humiliate and degrade people you are trying to persuade is never going to work. Another idea would be to arrive at some formula for correcting the problem that wouldn’t bankrupt all the free economies on earth and turn the into shit holes.

      Her 15 minutes are up.

      Notice Nick Sandmann doesn’t have to whine.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Kye,

      Teach et al label those that understand global warming as warmists, warmunists, hoaxers, commies, liars and cheats; and you’re upset being called a denier?

      Can you prove that decreasing CO2 emissions will “bankrupt all the free economies on Earth”?

      According to Teach et al there is no problem, so why fix it?

      Keep Greta in Sweden? What are you afraid of?

      Here’s a composite of the temperature over the Holocene. Note the 2016 marker.

        And surprise-it was warmer with less CO2.

      • Nighthawk says:

        Your own little ‘graph’ shows exactly what is wrong with the AGW BS. Around 8000 years ago it was much warmer than it is now. In fact, most of the Holocene has been warmer. Also, if you care to look, the average temps over the last 8000 years or so have been trending DOWN. 8000 years ago there was no possible way man’s activities had any effect on the climate yet it was warmer. I ‘noted’ the 2016 marker as you asked and see that we are finally back to the temps of about 1000 years ago.

  3. Jl says:

    That’s not how it works-no alternative theory needed as the new one still needs to be worked on. But typical in that J., like most, simply stop at “it’s warming!” Irrelevant. It would be the alleged effects that would matter

  4. I understand why activists like to exploit children for their political causes. Even though it is a losing tactic, I still reject the policy of attacking children for how they are being exploited. Greta gets a pass. Her handlers and parents are fair game.

    • Kye says:

      Nobody “gets a pass” because their parents brainwash them. When mooslem kids strap on bombs and blow people up they get no pass because their parents made them that way.

      Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Castro, Che, Maduro, Pol Pot, Mugabe, and every mooslem terrorist known to man was a child once. If they had been stopped when they were kids hundreds of millions of lives would have been saved. Nobody gets a pass.

      These “kids” should be taken away from their parents and taught right from wrong. Their parents should be prosecuted. But the children need to be helped especially when the hate filled leftists use a sad Asperger inflicted child as a political prop.

      Trump 2020 Save the children.
