To the ones saying the world is about to end, why are you here arguing? Shouldnt you be working on your bucket list? Spending time with your family? Cancelling all your insurance? Taking out a bunch of loans? Remortaging your house? Buying a bunker? Having as much sex as possible? You could be leaving metal engravings behind just in case another species evolves so that they could learn from our extinction.
Seriously, if you think the world is about to end and everything you love will be destroyed, shouldnt you be rioting and like... trying to forcefully shut down coal plants and oil rigs? Why are you wasting what little time you have to argue with me, some moron on the internet? Did I make the global warming? I dont even own a freaking car.
There has to be something better you could do with your last 10 years. You're acting pretty calm for someone who thinks everything is about to be destroyed. Your actions don't match your words very well. I'd be panicking if I believed it. If I thought the world would end in 10 years I would be running down the middle of the street screaming at the top of my lungs. I wouldnt be talking about anything else. I wouldnt care who was deported or what some celebrity tweeted 15 years ago. I wouldnt be switching on a computer or a cellphone if I thought our energy use was killing us.
I dont understand you at all.

So we should be going after places like CHina and India then, right? They are the biggest polluters in the world.
Um yah I remember how the leftist nuclear freeze movement fearmongered that we were all

I think Greta is great! If you listen to her Ted talk she makes a great argument:
Fossil fuel will soon be obsolete. The Chinese are spending billions on creating new sources of energy:
China spending US$3.3 billion on molten salt nuclear reactors for faster aircraft carriers and in flying drones
The Indians and Japanese are spending just as much money on LFTR research. Someone is going to solve the energy crisis. And the German's have their Stellerator which is amazing!

Christians dont riot, huh? Explain riots in majority Christian countries. None of them could possibly be real Christians? Those who follow Jesus don't care about material possessions, so explain the Pope and the Queen and the TV (gospel of prosperity) preacher spending millions on a luxury jet. You can't do it without a No True Scotsman argument. It turns into circular reasoning. Christians don't panic when they think they are going to die so if someone does they must not be Christian. A bunch of self congratulatory bull, empty platitudes. Yeah I guess Christians have never done anything wrong, they don't ever rip people off, they don't fear, they must never sin. Listen buddy, there was one Jesus and you ain't him. You have flaws like everyone else. You don't always behave Christ-like. Some Christians when they are dying, they will feel fear. Even Jesus seemed to feel things about dying, "My God, why hast thou forsaken me?" Thats what I'm talking about. My point stand. Where are the stages of grief? If people think they are about to die but they aren't reacting as if they are terminal, you are saying they must be Christian? The climate change scientists? The Clintons? AOC? They're just super into Jesus? Great argument bro. I totally don't think you shoehorn your religion into every conversation. Not one bit.

Have you guys seen pictures of this girl's family?
Poor thing has been fed sh*t her whole life and regurgitates assburgers when she speaks.
How did exploiting little girls with Aspbergers get to be so popular in the public spotlight?
You can see her syndrome (impassioned anger) when she speaks.
Other magnetic orators have used facial expressions to invoke emotional responses.
Like back in the 1920's & 30's. Remember impassioned rhetoric from Joseph & Adolph?
