St. Greta Releases Video, Is Very Disappointed In Your “Empty Words”

I wonder if anyone in the Cult of Climastrology and the Credentialed Media are thinking that it was perhaps not the best of ideas to elevate a teenager blowing off her education as a modern day icon, empowering her to lecture all humanity about her pet beliefs

Greta Thunberg: ‘We are speeding in the wrong direction’ on climate crisis

St. GretaThe world is speeding in the wrong direction in tackling the climate emergency, Greta Thunberg has said, before a UN event at which national leaders have been asked to increase their pledges for emissions cuts. (snip)

The fifth anniversary of the Paris climate accord is on Saturday and should have seen countries set out new plans to keep global heating below 2C and close to 1.5C. Current pledges would mean a catastrophic 3C rise in temperatures.

Thunberg has released a video which calls leaders to account for failing to reverse rising carbon emissions. “We are still speeding in the wrong direction,” she said. “The five years following the Paris agreement have been the five hottest years ever recorded and, during that time, the world has emitted more than 200bn tonnes of CO2.

“Distant hypothetical targets are being set, and big speeches are being given,” she said. “Yet, when it comes to the immediate action we need, we are still in a state of complete denial, as we waste our time, creating new loopholes with empty words and creative accounting.”

She told the Guardian: “Leaders should be telling the truth: that we are facing an emergency and we are not doing nearly enough. We need to prioritise the action that needs to be taken right here and right now, because it is right now that the carbon budget is being used up.

“We need to stop focusing on goals and targets for 2030 or 2050,” she said. “We need to implement annual binding carbon budgets today.”

She was very unhappy about all the empty words, an in you for failing to following the beliefs of a teenager who knows everything.

But Thunberg, who has given speeches at previous UN climate summits, concludes her video message by saying: “There is hope … we are the hope – we, the people.”

She said: “For me, the hope lies in democracy – it is the people who have the power. If enough people stand up together and repeat the same message, then there are no limits to what we can achieve.”

Here’s the question: what if most of us don’t actually want to do what she says? Are we supposed to bow to the minority? Or will St. Greta do like so many of her fellow cult members do, and Demand that government institute the restrictions?

Not now, Greta! Internet points to Covid-19 pandemic as teen activist berates world for ‘empty words’ on climate change

Greta Thunberg has been accused of issuing a tone-deaf lecture about the need for immediate climate ‘action’, with some arguing that it was a less-than-ideal moment to start issuing demands to the world. (snip)

However, many others were more hesitant to heap praise on Thunberg.

“Has Greta Thunberg chosen the wrong time to speak out on climate change?” tweeted Channel 5’s Jeremy Vine. The UK debate show host hinted that her appeal, made in the midst of a global pandemic, could be seen as out of touch.

There seemed to be others who harbored similar misgivings.

“I’ve got bigger things to worry about….like keeping my family and friends safe from a virus that could kill them,” wrote one Twitter user.

    If co2 is not causing the planet to warm,what is doing it ?

    • Blick says:

      What is causing the planet to warm? The Sun, the source of all heat on the earth.
      Greenhouse gases are only insulators and just like the insulation in a house do not provide heat.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Sorry, but that’s not quite correct. The question is why is the Earth rapidly warming now? The Sun is not providing more energy now than before (in fact it’s lower).

        The Sun heats the Earth which releases infrared radiation back into space. Atmospheric CO2 slows that loss of infrared radiation making the atmosphere, Earth and oceans warmer.

        • Jl says:

          And the proof the “earth is warming rapidly” is…..what? We already know you don’t have it. Shocking. And the experiment proving your hypothesis is where? There isn’t one.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Thermometers! A fairly old technology. Perhaps you’ve heard of them.

            Over a century ago, Professor Svante Arrhenius hypothesize that CO2 absorption of electromagnetic radiation in the infrared range could lead to global warming. But Arrhenius thought warming could be beneficial, even preventing the next ice age!

            What part of the theory of CO2-induced global warming do you consider unproven? CO2 absorbs infrared radiation, right? The Earth absorbs sunlight and re-radiates at longer wavelengths into space, OK (otherwise the Earth would really overheat). Atmospheric CO2 has increased from 260 ppm to over 400 ppm over the past century or so, correct? This increased CO2 comes from fossil fuel burning, agreed? The Earth is warming, right?

            What would YOU consider proof?

    Yet St. Greta proposes nothing concrete in her speech. Does she have a list of concrete actions to propose for everybody to follow? What industries /jobs is she willing to sacrifice? How many people must die to reduce the carbon footprint back to 1880 levels?
