The Cult of Greta Thunberg is an extremely disturbing one, and one which marks a new low in the drain-circling that Western civilisation seems bent on. Even if I happened to believe that the naturally occurring gas that each of us breathes out many thousands of times per day, and which plants use for photosynthesis, is going to end up being the death of us, I would still be profoundly disturbed by the use of this girl — who is very clearly mentally unstable — as the poster-child for the agenda.
“Adults keep saying we owe it to the young people, to give them hope. But I don’t want your hope. I don’t want you to be hopeful. I want you to panic. I want you to feel the fear I feel every day. I want you to act. I want you to act as you would in a crisis. I want you to act as if the house is on fire, because it is.”
Causes which are backed up by incontrovertible facts do not need the aid of slightly unnerving and emotive teenage girls to lead the charge. On the contrary, slightly unnerving and emotive teenage girls might be thought by a rational society to be somewhat of a hindrance to the facts, since they are likely to detract from them and move the issues from the realm of reason and rational discourse to emotion and feelings.
Which of course is exactly the point, and why she is where she is. Until this last year or so, it was perfectly possible to hold to the reasonable position that any changes to the global climate are not necessarily the product of human actions, without being considered unhinged. Yes, the utterly disingenuous charge of “Denier” was increasingly used to smear those who questioned the claims being made, implying that to hold such a position was akin to denying Nazi genocide against millions of Jewish people. But despite this, and the fact that most of the corporate media tended to treat the claim that humans are responsible for Climate Change as proven fact, it was still just about possible to dissent without being treated like a pariah and a very wicked person….
The author is being too charitable. The science is already settled as far as I can see. The historical connection between global temperature and CO2 is that the former drives the latter, not the other way around. Unless there’s something uniquely toxic about anthropogenic CO2 as opposed to CO2 from other sources, humans have little if any impact on global temperature. The dominant driver seems to be solar output variability and earth’s cloud cover, the latter driven by solar wind variability driven in turn by sunspot cycles. http://thoughtcrimeradio.net/2017/06/the-real-enemy-you/
But the same establishment “science” which marketed circumcision and pathologized-birth and infant “formula” and contaminated vaccines and water fluoridation and cigarettes and spontaneously symmetrically imploding skyscrapers and WMD’s in iraq and the safety of GMO food and agent orange and depleted uranium says otherwise. And THIS time there’s no covert agenda you see. Nothing having to do with social control and profit and depopulation and eugenics. This time they really are concerned about serving humanity and saving the environment. That’s why they refuse to give cold fusion research the funding it deserves, opting instead to put humanity on a strict energy diet constrained by wind and geothermal and sunshine. That’s why they continue dumping hugely toxic chemicals on farmland, in the air and in the water supplies. They’re trying to “save the earth” by killing people en masse, and btw destroying the earth in the process. It makes sense if you don’t think about it. That’s why hyper-vaccination is so important to maintaining social stability.
Malthusian propaganda about an imminent too-many-humans-caused climate catastrophe is just another form of pollution: information pollution. And it’s being targeted specifically at children, because they’re too young to remember all the self-serving lies and genocidal atrocities that came before.
Greta is being terribly emotionally abused. Because that’s how these people operate. The scum of the earth.
