St. Greta Says We Can Fight Coronavirus And Solve The (fake) Climate Crisis At Same Time

St. Greta is applying all her worldly experience and college degrees (sarc) to explain how we can do this

Greta: We must fight the climate crisis and pandemic simultaneously

The world needs to tackle the coronavirus pandemic and climate change simultaneously, and guard against people who try to use the current crisis to delay action cutting carbon emissions, Greta Thunberg has urged.

Sadly, the rest is behind a true paywall, but you get the point. And it’s super easy for people with no responsibilities and no actual financial concerns to push this stuff. She’s a minor, and Someone Else, be it her parents or all the others who are providing aid, is paying for her current lifestyle.

And then this snowflake

Commentary: Outbreak shows we can confront climate change

I’m 18 years old. In the four years I’ve spent fighting for climate justice, I’ve constantly heard the same excuses from the leaders who are supposed to protect me, my future and the future of generations to come: “We just can’t do that. We can’t transform our economy. We can’t change that fast.” (snip)

Well, the coronavirus pandemic has blown their cover. It has exposed how government leaders, and the American public, actually can make immediate, dramatic behavioral changes; even when those changes have serious consequences for the economy and our quality of life. It’s just that, until now, they haven’t been willing to.

Well, yeah, in a real emergency. What has Jamie Margolin sacrificed?

When it comes to the climate crisis, most of the statistics are flipped: Young people will suffer the most. A United Nations study estimates that countries have roughly 10 years to take “unprecedented” actions to cut carbon emissions, before it’s too late. In a decade or two, many of today’s most influential politicians won’t even be around. But my generation will be. And we will be suffering and dying in massive numbers from the countless harms of the climate crisis: air pollution permanently damaging our lungs and immune systems; more pandemics of infectious diseases; severe and frequent natural disasters, droughts and famine; a projected 150 million people displaced by sea level rise.

Uh huh

You want young people to sacrifice — to stop socializing, to shut ourselves inside — so older people can live. But many older people aren’t sacrificing so the youth can live.

The older should pass rules that only apply to those 25 and under who are pushing this stuff, see how they like it. I suspect after 3-4 more months of economic disaster and having to stay home, a lot of young climate cultists will be giving up their religion.

    I suspect that the majority of Teach s customers are in the 18 to 35 demo group
    If they stop buying will Teach want another government handout (welfare!)
    50 is a terrible age
    Too old to miss that new global warming oven temp rises down not quite ready to have to accept as a sport, golf

    Cool your jets, Greta. We should hold firm and not allow gov’ts to reverse any gains* in fighting global warming, but now is not the time for new initiatives.

    *The EPA drastically relaxed pollution regulations, citing the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic.

      The Gray Lady?

      You’re better off with Gateway. Gateway tells the truth.

    • gitarcarver says:

      So the EPA relaxed reporting requirements which means less people in the workplace spreading the virus in both the private industry locations and the government monitoring locations.

      From the article: ““In general, the E.P.A. does not expect to seek penalties for violations of routine compliance monitoring, integrity testing, sampling, laboratory analysis, training, and reporting or certification obligations in situations where the E.P.A. agrees that Covid-19 was the cause of the noncompliance and the entity provides supporting documentation to the E.P.A. upon request,” the order states.”

      The left has so much hate that it would rather continue to see the spread of COVID-19 rather than prudently relaxing regulations on generating paperwork.

      All the left has is hate.

    When did the trump virus stop being fake news?

    • formwiz says:

      There is no such thing.

      There’s the Wu Flu, Kung Flu, Wu Hu Flu, Lung Pao Flu, Flu Manchu, even the Red Chinese Germ Warfare Flu, but nobody’s heard of this virus, Jeffery.

  4. Jl says:

    When are you going to show us the quote where Trump said the virus was a hoax? Still waiting, John

    Bitchi Longstocking is mad because she’s on the second half hour of her 15 minutes.

    • Kye says:

      Wait’ll she wakes up at 30 and realizes she’s a semi retarded, ugly nag of a bitch that no man would touch if she was handing out pardons at Leavenworth. Unless rapin’ Joe Biden is still around. He’d do’er.

  6. Professor hale says:

    She’s 18 already? She doesn’t get to preach about old people messing up “her” future any more. Her future is here already. As an adult, she is officially part of the problem now.
