Various military groups, banks, insurance companies, etc., have been publishing reports for personnel and clients about long-term effects of global warming for the past decade.

.Fact is, she was in the right place at the right time, just like everyone else whose been granted the opportunity to spout their opinion on the world stage.


Alls fair - and truth suffers - but who cares about truth when the stakes are so high? The sky is falling.......

If they are somehow steered in that direction by their parents, who have the wisdom and generosity to recognize the mistakes that their generation and generations before have made,then honestly: who the hell cares? What difference does it make if Greta Thunberg’s parents have led her to the same conclusion that scientists and academics and climate experts have?This is not even a question of practicing empathy for your fellow man, or speaking out against injustice, or being on the right side of history; it is a question of being on the right side of the present, of believing in a version of rapidly unfolding events that is backed by scientific consensus.

Oh, please. The problem with Greta is that she doesn't KNOW anything. Like a whole lot of people, both young and old, she has not actually studied the issue in any kind of depth. She, like you, is just reacting emotionally to what she has been told. It's not exactly a scientific reaction is it? By "defending" her you are defending ignorance. Congrats.

She's being used for propaganda and you bought it, but somehow anyone criticizing her is an insufferable ass eh?

#ing irony.

So really, you should go choke on your pseudo morals.

If she is a new world order georgia guidestones 500 million agenda, then i will bite my own lip, admit that i have been naive and blue-eyed.


Hey!

I have blue eyes, 😕

On topic; While I agree that she shouldn't be receiving [so much] stick, she is a bit of a d*ck, 🤷🏻‍♂️

"How dare you!?"

Yeah, okay love, settle down.

Your reaction is what they want and are counting on.

They have trotted out everything and everyone over the past decade or more to tell us we must do exactly what they tell us or the world will end!!!!1!!! Eleventy-billion DOOM! Everything from Al Gore and his fake documentary to faked pictures of polar bears supposedly drowning for lack of ice to even a graph released by a scientist that has also been proven to be created using cherry-picked data in order to show what he wanted it to show and not what actually was.

Now the same people are trotting out Greta to tell us the same thing because none of lies they showed us before worked. None of those things convinced us to turn over ever larger and greater tax burdens and control over our lives and whole sectors of the economy to the government bureaucrats to control as they choose.

A big part of the problem is their spiel is always:

1. The world is ending
2. It's your fault
3. Give us control of everything
4. ?
5. WE'RE SAVED!

See #4 is where the magical solution happens to save us. They never explain exactly what they will do. There is no solution in the wings to spend our money on or work toward creating.

It's always "Give us control ... ? ... WE'RE SAVED" which really means we're all duped into losing our liberty for likely nothing except scare mongering.

But they haven't convinced enough of us to go in on there doom porn yet. Likely because of all the failed predictions of the past:



And they use someone like Greta because ... "How dare you be mean to this poor, addled child? She's really sincere in her beliefs! She means it!"

Well, you know what? The guy on the corner wearing a sandwich sign saying "Repent! The End Is Nigh" is really sincere too, but I don't see you defending him from ridicule, nor do I see you repenting. Why not? Why is Greta different than that guy? I mean, he's the butt of every cheap Hollywood joke, in many political cartoons and others, but you don't seem to find it offensive at all. Heck, we laugh at doom porn all the time, but we can't laugh at Greta's?

Greta is a great actor, coming from a family of actors. That is the kind of person they need to push the climate carbon agenda scam. Her actions will greatly increase the income of the green energy investors. We need to tax the hell out of those investors for the huge mines that destroy large tracts of lands so they can mine the rare earths and lithium to make batteries and solar panels.

She has to be an actor. A 16 year old girl couldn't possibly have an opinion of her own. There has to be people pushing her to do all this...

(That's sarcasm by the way)


Well since her sister two years younger and her Father and actually Mother are actors it does fit.

I will promise to you all, that i try to keep this as understandable as i can. But i am an emotional metaphor for a car crash, so that will not be easy at all.

In my eyes, in my books... Greta Thunberg is a kid who has tons of energy and a passion for her good cause. She, and her whole story, has inspired me greatly.

And the SMASHING i have seen here, ATS, my favorite online site, breaks my heart and breaks my brains. "She is a new world order, globalist, man made global warming hoax agenda" Hereby, i demand solid proof. If i am wrong, i will not be glad about being wrong, but i promise to admit it. Is it an impossibility that she is just a teen kid who has a really warm and caring heart?

Full grown adult men from USA has called her actions out for raising his taxes? Well guess what, Einstein? If a sixteen year old Swedish girl is raising your taxes, then your income would have been taxed away in any case.

Mentally unstable? Greta? Yes, probably, some kind of asperger's and autism spectrum stuff. Well, i am way more mentally unstable than this child has ever been and i have paperwork to prove that. And she has, already, at age sixteen, gotten way further in life that i will ever achieve, and in a couple of years i will be 40 year old.

Why does everything have to be a conspiracy? Why can't this teenie be one of "The good ones" Did she hurt you from the inside that much really, dear adult male or dear adult female? She is a child, and i can't keep this inside of me anymore. I will step forward to defend her. And if she one day googles herself, i truly hope that she will not find ATS threads. This hurts me but i am an adult, bring it on. Do not vomit your personal frustrations upon a child human



I totally applaud what Greta is doing.

She is showing a tenacity and intellect far above the norm.

If she can get through to the knuckle draggers, the greedy and self interested then we as a species have a hope and a future together.

The trouble is, that she will be (and is being) blamed for the uncomfortable content of her message.

If we cannot, as a species, work together against such 'slow approaching' threats, we are doomed.

Great - please explain to the planet why the puppet has completely ignored the worlds largest polluter - CHINA.

??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Ah, hello, earth to finspiracy??

She has been eerily quiet about her mission when it comes to non-western polluters. Care to comment?



Sure, you requested a comment and i will comment, regarding your post. Then i have to take a break, i have been taking enough ... eeeh... something from the most of you upon me. I knew it was coming.

Worlds largest polluter is China. Or one of the largest at least. Even i don't have my facts straight and i never claimed that i have.

Look at it this way: You have a small shack in the woods. Just a couple of miles away, there is a huge factory. That factory pollutes your air, your water, your food. Does that mean that you don't have to do any waste disposal or recycling anymore?

And about the "Ah, hello, earth to finspiracy" That will not work. This earth has never accepted me and i have not accepted this earth. We are disconnected, me and the planet. I point no blame, it is just the way it has been since day one of my existence.

Where did you get those two first words from! Cool! (he said good morning to me) Good morning or good day to you too. Of course kids should be at school. My knowledge is that she is taking a year off and finding herself and her purpose here, and doing a really good job at it!
