  • Greta Thunberg

    Maybe all of us should pay attention to her:

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world...cid=spartandhp
    Teen climate change activist Greta Thunberg was one of the witnesses to testify this week before a joint hearing of two House committees on the
    “global climate crisis.”

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/us...cid=spartandhp
    The US is set to stage its largest ever day of protest over the climate crisis, with tens of thousands of students joined by adults in abandoning schools and workplaces for a wave of strikes across the country.

    on Sept. 23, the kids are walking out to show that they've had enough inaction from the adults in their lives.

        The problem is that those guys failed to check their opinions with children first.

        I don't know about you, but when I was a teen and pre-teen, I pretty much knew everything.

          I wonder if she asked him why he bought that beachfront property?

              Why should I pay attention to a 16 year-old, ill-informed high school student about anything? This is from her Facebook page:

              Here we get typical empty-headed Leftist idealism

              Yes there are many many things that are very good and necessary, and improves the situation. Such as solar- and wind power, circular economy, veganism, sustainable farming and so on.
              Here she is simply an ill-informed know-nothing.

              But that can never happen as long as we allow the ”yeah-but-what-about-nuclear-power-then-debate” to go on and on and on. This is wasting our time. This is climate delayer-ism. We need to keep a great number of thoughts in our head at same time and yet move forward with the changes at unprecedented speed.

              Personally I am against nuclear power, but according to the IPCC, it can be a small part of a very big new carbon free energy solution, especially in countries and areas that lack the possibility of a full scale renewable energy supply - even though its extremely dangerous, expensive and time consuming. But let’s leave that debate until we start looking at the full picture.
              She says this, but it's just calling for the usual, unchanging, ideas from the Left on Gorebal Warming.

              Once you have done your homework, you realize that we need new politics. We need a new economics, where everything is based on our rapidly declining and extremely limited carbon budget.

              But that is not enough. We need a whole new way of thinking.

              She's not some brilliant high schooler. She's an average intellect who has become a political busybody. She says nothing new, unique, or intellectually challenging. Instead, she spouts the Leftist / Progressive view on Gorebal Warming with great precision, no doubt born of doing it day in, day out.

                At the same time we can not for example ban plastic bags which is what some so called environmentalists want. We already have all sorts of emissions from all sorts of things going back to the ancient times.

                Will Trump act, who knows, he talked alot about bringing back the steel and auto jobs and only a few hundred have been brought, going to have to raise that # to a million or a few million. Middle class people have had it with the likes of Trump and environmentalists whom are not helping, we need another FDR.

                  In this quote you call a 16 year old girl 'ill informed', 'empty headed' and a 'know nothing' and then quote her without any real analysis or refutation of said quotes but when somebody does the same of you.....

                  But, when you divide population by GDP to get the GDP per person in the state.... Arizona gets $23.54 versus California's $14.48. That is, Arizona is nearly TWICE as productive as California. No wonder... Between massive regulations, high taxes, and a large population on welfare, California isn't very productive for its massive size.
                  You whine and cry about ad hominem and post silly pictures of referees.....

                  Funny that.......

                    Why aren't these environmental protesters going to China?
                    That place pollutes more than any western nation and the Paris accords gave them a pass!
                    Dispite our best intentions, the system is dysfunctional that intelligence failure is guaranteed.

                      Because they know full well they'd be arrested, tossed in a prison, and never seen or heard from again.

                        So what's the downside?

                          For us, nothing. For them a reality check.

                              studipity never ceases.

                              Greta Thunberg, a 16-year-old climate activist, is facing some backlash after it became clear that her voyage to the United States may not have been as eco-friendly as it appeared.

                              Thunberg garnered global fame as she led a youth movement by skipping school to protest inaction on climate change in her home country of Sweden. Her small protest turned into a global demonstration where thousands of students skipped school to demonstrate on behalf of the planet.

                              Her demonstrations earned her both fame and a nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize.

                              As part of her global campaign, Thunberg decided she would visit the United States to speak with lawmakers and activists about her goals related to protecting the planet. The problem for Thunberg, however, was that flying across the Atlantic typically involves a carbon-producing flight.

                              She decided to sail across the pond for her trip to the U.S. in order to avoid a carbon-intensive flight.

                              Although Thunberg was lauded for the decision, it became clear that her trip to the U.S. was not as green as she had hoped. According to a report from the Associated Press, her sailing team is flying two people to the U.S. while Thunberg conducts her visit.

                              The sailing team, Team Malizia, only has one boat and will be flying to the U.S. to bring the boat back to Europe. A spokesperson for the team claimed that they will be donating to carbon-reducing endeavors to “compensate” for the carbon used on the flights.

                              The spokesperson called it “an imperfect solution” that was “better than doing nothing,” in an email to the A.P.

                              Many found the situation to be laughable, while others claimed the situation demonstrated the “hypocrisy” of the climate movement.
