St. Greta: “World Leaders Are Acting Like Children” Or Something

St. Greta of Stockholm held a rally in Bristol, and was rather Upset

It’s worth watching the video and reading the lines, because something is missing

(UK Guardian) Tens of thousands of people, many of them children skipping school, braved heavy rain to join a climate strike headed by Greta Thunberg in Bristol city centre.

The vast crowd fell silent as the 17-year-old activist told them governments were acting like children and so it fell to young people to be “the adults in the room”.

Criticising governments and the media, she said: “Once again they sweep their mess under the rug for us – young people, their children – to clean up for them. We must continue and we have to be patient. Remember that the changes required will not happen overnight.”

Wearing a yellow raincoat and woolly hat – a look copied by some of her devotees – she took to the stage to chants of “Greta, Greta” from schoolchildren and teenagers.

She told them: “We will not be silenced because we are the change, and change is coming whether you like it or not. This emergency is being completely ignored by the politicians, the media and those in power.

“Basically, nothing is being done to halt this crisis despite all the beautiful words and promises from our elected officials. So what did you do during this crucial time? I will not be silenced when the world is on fire.”

I love the look of a heavy winter jacket and wool cap to ward off the cold while being told the world is on fire. Anyhow, for all St. Greta’s screeching, she failed to offer any solutions. For all her saying that governments are the children, she failed to offer any solutions. If all you’re doing is complaining without offering solutions, you are whining. And, seriously, this is her “plan” from last fall

  • Fly less or not at all
  • Cut down on meat consumption or go vegan
  • Join an activist movement
  • Vote

That’s it. The totality of her plan. Because, like any other child, she demands that Other People do something. But, the rest of us will look back in 10 years, 20 years, and laugh about how hysterical (both ways) these Climate Cultists were, and perhaps Greta will get a degree in some discipline that makes sense.

    That’s the money quote. If you can find an excuse to ditch school that the old people will buy, you’re going to grab it.

    If you’re old enough, you remember a lot of people showed up at the anti-war rallies for the same reason.

    And in the hopes of getting laid.

    That said, you get the feeling Bitchi Longstocking is going to die a crazy, unlaid old maid.

  2. […] quick: what has St. Greta offered to solve the (fake) climate crisis? Very, very little. She screeches quite a bit, as do her disciples, but, they demand that adults Do Something. Because […]
